Google Play Store now shows app download trends

The American tech multinational Google has now added a new feature to the Google Play app store that will let users know if an app is trending or not. According to Mashable, Google’s app store trends are now represented by an arrow moving up or down. This arrow is somewhat similar to the icon indicating the rise or fall in stock prices in the markets.

The new icons will now appear next to the apps in the Google Play Store top charts list. Although the list is already arranged in descending order, the new icons indicate whether it will stay in the same position for longer or less. Apps on the list that aren’t represented by any icons to their left probably indicate that these apps aren’t seeing any changes in their trends. While these new icons are fairly self-explanatory, Google has yet to officially talk about them on any of its communication channels.

As with Mashable, as this is a server-side upgrade, users don’t have to do anything on their own. The availability of “trending” icons can be checked simply by opening the Google Play Store app and tapping the chart tab at the top. The Google Play Store does not provide details on the exact number of downloads other than simple lists such as best free apps, best paid apps and so on. Notably, as the list of the best free apps is updated almost every day, even the new icons don’t reveal exactly how many slots the app has moved up or down. from your position. (ANI)
