Google Play Store: Search Filters for Ratings and new Functions

Programming is such a wonderful field that can allow you to create pretty much anything you want. But even so, there’s always room for improvement, and the Play Store offered by Google plans to lend programmers a hand. Developers have learned billions of dollars after putting their apps on the official Android marketplace.

But we have to admit that by the current search filters that the Play Store has, finding a really interesting app is not an easy task at all. Therefore, Google plans to fix this problem once and for all. It began by testing search filters to improve the chances for the users to find their desired content.

More filtering capabilities

The new tests will enhance the filtering capabilities, as they will be allowing refinement by rating, by the existence of the “Editor’s Choice” badge, and by the “New” label. All three of these new filters will be applied at the same time.

Google Play Store has a staggering amount of users it has to please everyday: over 1 billion. And as the marketplace has stored around 1.5 million apps, you can guess for yourself how useful it will be the improved search engine. Play Store has apps, games, songs, e-books, wallpapers, and more. A percentage of 98% of the total apps (including games, songs, etc.) are free of charge, while about 90% of the total Android revenue is generated from games. Furthermore, the number of Google Play developers is huge: 388,000. Programming has been significantly growing in popularity in the recent years.

The changes will come in the form of a new update that will be rolled out for Android phones in several days. We are gladly waiting for it, as we know that Google is doing its best to provide the users with the best services in all areas.
