The Google Play store is a notoriously crowded marketplace, where visibility can make or break a game. These new features will debut with a small update and will be quite helpful for both consumers and developers. This is in order to make it more obvious to consumers when a game or app is on sale, instead of having to rely on a developer posting it in the game's description. We would be happy to provide further advice and recommendations concerning the required steps, to ensure compliance with the applicable obligations and their scope. Apparently, Google introduced a new set of tools called "playables".

For anyone browsing through Google Play though, it's the change to ranking algorithms that will have the most immediate and obvious impact.

To that end, the search giant (and runner of the largest app and game store), is unveiling a number of improvements created to make discovering, buying and playing high-quality games easier for users, and turn the Google Play Store into an even more attractive home for game makers' creations.

Google is bringing some new features and changes to Play Store. There will be various styles and genres that will be featured and given attention, which is a pretty cool development for Google Play. There will be a ton of variety in terms of which apps will be on sale, and sometimes a couple dollars off regular price is enough to get people interested in paying for that app they were thinking about for a while but never pulled the trigger on.

Google is changing its Play Store tools to help game developers to lead in the gaming market.

The strike-through list price is a great way for developers to drum up interest in an app or game they want to promote, and it's surprising that it has taken so long to implement this option. And for $0 sales, they won't count as actual sales on a developer's dashboard and won't appear in any Top Paid charts on Google Play.

According to Google, the Play Store will now showcase the games that had more user engagement and star ratings despite giving priority to the number of installs.
