Google introduces new updates for ‘Top Charts’ in the Play Store

By : |November 21, 2016 0

After adding a revamped UI, a new trending section and net-banking support in the payment mode, Google is testing some new upgrades for the Play store.

Instead of displaying the trending apps in the form of exclusive app cards, Play store now shows the ranking of the top applications in the ‘Top Charts’ – the parent category which hosts the top-most ranking (paid or free) apps, games and trending apps.

With the latest update, users can see the ranking more prominently via numbers on the left side of the screen.

Notably, Google is also doing away with the space between the cards.

According to the Android Police, there is a new switch at the top to hide apps you already have installed. Once, the installed apps are hidden, the listings become decluttered, making it easier for the user to discover new apps.

Though Google is yet to make a public release, few users witnessed this upgrade in the month of June after which many other users are also receiving the same update.

In addition, the tech giant is also testing some major changes to the home screen UI of the Play Store, according to the Tech Portal. The update includes a “card-like carousel and the app category option has been moved to the top of this carousel instead of being at the bottom of it.”
