(Pocket-lint) – The Google Play Store seems to be about to get a little more useful – or at least a little more locally relevant. Google announced some upcoming changes to the platform in November of this year.
Most important of these is an adjustment that will ensure that users see reviews and ratings specific to their own country. This means that you shouldn’t have the problem of being fooled by high ratings for an app that isn’t performing well in your area.
On top of that, but arriving at a later date in early 2022, Google says it will begin a similar process to give you notices specific to the type of device you’re browsing, whether it’s a phone, tablet, Chromebook, or laptop.
There are also changes being made to app developers to allow them to see a more detailed and understandable breakdown of their app’s performance on Google Play, so it looks like things are going to get a bit more useful on both sides of the aisle.
