Google Play Store Game Categories To Be Expanded In February


These days, a mobile platform’s success hinges on the app ecosystem, there’s no doubt about that fact. Platforms such as Windows Phone and BlackBerry have had a hard time catching up with behemoths like Android and iOS simply because they have a much better ecosystem. Its not only apps that make users’ lives easier, its also about mobile gaming. Most users actually prefer gaming on their handheld devices now rather than portable consoles. If you have found the game categories on Google Play Store to be a bit broad to effectively categorize all of the titles available, fret not as they are going to be substantially expanded in February, next year.

Right now there are six game categories in the Play Store which contain within themselves all of the titles that users can download, Arcade & Action, Brain & Puzzle, Cards & Casino, Casual, Racing and Sports Games. In Feburary, 11 additional categories will be added, bringing the total up to 17. Including the ones already present, new categories will include Strategy, Board, Family, Trivia, Simulation, Music, Word and more. More categories means that developers have more flexibility when it comes to specify categories in the Play Store listing, though they won’t need to make any changes to the APKs.
