The option ‘Updates completed’ It is the feature that Google suddenly removed at the beginning of this year and that until now it had not given us the option to recover. This notification will allow us to receive a notification when the applications finish updating.

In this way, if you have the automatic updates updated, you will be able to see in a notification a notice with all the applications that have been updated on that day. It is deactivated by default, so we will have to activate it manually from the notification settings of the Play Store if we want to receive them.
