Google Play Services beta Community Report 📲 Google Pixel XL 2, Android 8.1.0

UPDATE: this was an Android excellence program rollout for Germany. Thanks to @Dr. Rita El Khoury for the info!

Some users now can see a different type of cards on the Google Play homepage. Google started highlighting pages collections. What is the apps collection? It is a page with a list of 5 apps combined on the same topic.

Currently, I saw the following examples:

  • 5 offline games
  • 5 runner games
  • 5 new apps in September
  • 5 apps for productivity

The collection page has a topic description and updated date. All apps in the collection list have 3 points of "Why we love this", screenshots o video and the short description section.

This feature is not personalized because it also shows apps on the list if they are already installed.

Did you get this feature too?

  • Google Play services is used to update Google apps and apps from Google Play and it also enhances your app experience
