Launch of Google’s family apps section on the Play Store
We first heard about Google’s “Designed for Families” Play Store program in mid-May, and Google officially announced that it will be adding new family-focused features to the Play Store during Google I / O. 2015. Now, a new section called “New Family Fun” is appearing on the Play Store, featuring the friendly star mascot, categories of iconic characters, and more …
The new “Family” app category only includes apps that have been tested and approved through a handpicked selection process. Currently, the top section shows apps only on Google Play, the second is a “New and Popular” list (in principle, new and popular apps), there is a “Spotlight on Disney” section, a section that sorts them. apps by character, and more.
If you have a child who uses your Android tablet or smartphone, now it’s much easier to find and install apps that you can feel comfortable with and are age-appropriate. The sections feature everything from the famous Minecraft and Lego Star Wars, to creative applications for painting and drawing. As you can see below, the “Popular Characters” section includes apps categorized by “Dora the Explorer”, “Elmo”, “Peppa Pig” and more.
Go to the new section on the Web Play Store to check it out, and the mobile version should be rolled out momentarily.
