Hey, look! Recommended apps in the Google Play store! At some point in the last 24 hours, Google activated a new section to help you find apps that are liked by your friends, popular in your area, or that are popular with users similar to you. Once in the “Recommended Apps” section, which can be visited by entering the main Apps section and scrolling down a bit, you can either tap to install or click the “Don’t show me this app anymore” button, aka the circle with a line through it.
It’s a welcomed move by Google. The Play store can be overwhelming now that it has thousands of apps, so anything to help make the experience more user-friendly is a plus. Depending on how well they recommend, this may remove the need for the other dozen or so “Recommended Apps” apps.
Feel free to cruise around in this new section and let us know if you find anything fun.
