Google's Android App Store Will Get A Revamp, What Can We Expect?
Google's android app store will get a revamp to unwraps new ways to subscribe and pay. The search giant is making changes to Google Play, its online marketplace, where you can download apps, games, and other stuff. Google said this news during a software developer event in San Francisco on Thursday. The company is also making a big push at hooking in users in emerging markets.
Google Store is an online hardware retailer operated by Google that sells Google Nexus devices, Chromecasts, Android Wear smartwatches, Nest Thermostat, and accessories such as keyboards, chargers and phone covers. It was introduced on March 11, 2015, and replaced the Devices section of Google Play as Google's hardware retailer.
According to Android Headlines, Google’s team is currently looking into ways to infuse the Play Store with the latest artificial intelligence (AI) technology. More specifically, the plan is to revamp the Play Store recommendations algorithms which would rely on AI solutions to learn more about users’ habits and preferences and make better recommendations than they currently do.
Aside from that, Google also wants to expand support to different payment methods on the Play Store. This doesn’t only imply on the new payment options but could also mean the expansion of currently supported services to more areas.
"As the next billion users come online, many with little or no access to credit cards, we want to help deliver the best payments experience for both developers and consumers," said Sameer Samat, vice president of product management for Android & Google Play.
The app store revamp also comes after Apple, Google's biggest rival in the smartphone software business, made several changes to its App Store for iPhones earlier this year. Apple's updates included changes in subscriptions and trying to make sure apps get approved more quickly, according to CNET.
In the meantime, let us wait for the further announcement that Google will make. I am sure that all the revamping news will be positively taken by all the Android users. Note that this will be more on expansions, therefore, this will expand the experience of the consumers.
