During an evening presentation at Google I/O last night, Google announced winners for their first ever Google Play Awards. After announcing a handful of apps for a handful of categories (like “Best use of Material Design” and “Best game”) a few weeks back, we now know who reigns supreme in the eyes of Google’s “panel of experts on the Google Play team.” 

And the winners are:

  • Best app: Houzz
  • Best families app: Thinkrolls 2
  • Best game: Clash Royale
  • Best use of Material Design: Robinhood
  • Best use of Google Play Game Services: Table Tennis Touch
  • Early adopter: World Around Me
  • Go global: Pokemon Shuffle Mobile
  • Most innovative: NYT VR
  • Standout indie: Alphabear
  • Standout startup: Hopper

Big user of any of those apps? Houzz is certainly a wonderful app that probably deserves the win there. Robinhood is also a very well made app. I haven’t used many of the others, but really would have liked to have seen Alto’s Adventure snag the “best game” award.
