Google Play Store now priotises stable apps

Bad Android Apps Officially Getting Downgraded in Google Play Store

It's no secret that Google's Play Store is chock full of crappy apps - just drop the word "guide" into the search bar and see for yourself - and Google itself knows it, too.

"People enjoy using apps and games which meet their performance and quality expectations".

The internet giant carried out internal analysis of app reviews on the Play Store and found that half of one-star reviews mentioned app stability, and, as a result, has chose to enhance its algorithms to reflect this.

But this is just a stop gap in the aforementioned millions of apps available as Google's main problem is that they only take action when there are complaints about the app.

According to the latest announcement by Google, the company is targeting applications that cause slow render times, excessive battery usage, and crashes, explaining that users should avoid them as these can become "a source of frustration" for them.

Google has revealed it taking steps to try to reduce the amount of crappy apps which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. This will further push these apps down in the ratings.

The updated algorithm will continue to be rolled out to the users over the next few days across the world, said the company.

Developers who focus on app quality can see improvements in their rating, and their retention and monetization.

Earlier this month, Google announced a new security feature called Google Play Protect which aims to keep Android apps safe from malware and other security threats. These tools include Android vitals-a post-install app performance indicator-and a pre-launch report drawn from alpha and beta testing cycles. Following the update, Google found out that the people who downloaded the high ranked apps went on to use them more and uninstall less. "By focusing on the quality and performance of your app, you'll find more success on Google Play".
