Google Play now has personalised recommendations
Google recently updated their Google Play app for Android. Much like the browser version has done for a little while now, Google Play for Android is displaying ‘recommended apps.’
The recommended apps are a nice addition and provide us with a way to find apps that we wouldn’t necessarily have. We’re not sure how the apps are recommended, but they are definitely sorted by ‘popular in area’ (as seen below), highly downloaded and if friends have +1′d an application.
While the recommendations are accurate, there is definitely some work to be done. The two apps recommended to me on the first page were My Vodafone and AFL Live Official App. The AFL app, I already have and My Vodafone is useless to me as I have no devices on the Vodafone network. I’m sure that in time the recommendations will become more targeted and more meaningful.
If you’d like to view the apps in your own phone then head over to Google Play -> Apps -> Featured (as seen in the image above).
