With an objective to promote apps that have great design and performance, or those who follow the best practices given by the search giant itself, Google has come up with a new section in Google Play store called ‘Android Excellence’. The newly-introduced section has been curated by Google’s editorial team and is divided into two categories of apps and games. The Android Excellence appears in Google’s newly revamped Editor’s Choice section.
The move comes after Apple’s recent WWDC debut of its overhauled App Store, with a new interface and shifted focus on discovery and howtos. It also has a new way to highlight apps — the App Store’s upgraded landing page will feature one new app a day, opening possibilities for upcoming developers and encouraging daily visits.
“The new collections will showcase apps and games that deliver incredible user experiences on Android, use many of our best practices, and have great design, technical performance, localization, and device optimization,” Google said in its blog post.
Google says that the Android Excellence collections will be refreshed quarterly. As the lists will be refreshed after a considerable time, it might not be the best place to find great new apps or games but the entries that make this list are likely to get abundance of promotion and exposure. This is likely to prove as a great incentive for app developers to follow the guidelines provided by Google for Android apps.
We’ve listed here the distinguished names in the first round of Android Excellence.
