Google Play ‘Designed for tablets’ section now available to more tablets



Now that there are over 70 million Android tablets activated world-wide, Google is pushing out the new Google Play tablet section called Designed for tablets, to help users browse the store easier and also help discover great apps and games for their tablet device. This section includes only apps and games which meet criteria and guidelines Google established last year.

On November 21, the Play Store will make a series of changes so it’s even easier for tablet users to find those apps that are best for their devices. First, by default, users browsing Google Play on a tablet will now see apps and games that are designed for tablets on the top lists (Top Paid, Top Free, Top Grossing, Top New Paid, Top New Free, and Trending). Tablet users will still be able to switch the view so they can see all apps or games if they choose. Also starting November 21, apps and games that do not meet the “designed for tablets” criteria will be marked as “designed for phones” for users who browse the Play Store on tablets.

If you are a developer, you’ll probably want to make sure your app / game is ‘Designed for tablets.’ Much more details can be found on Android Developers official blog, link below.
