Google Play Store to Get 8 New App Categories

In a bid to help users access apps easily, Google is going to further expand its Android app categories on the Google Play Store in the coming two months.

The Google Play Store currently has apps widely categorised into Android Wear, Games, and Family. Under these, further sub-categories include apps from Social, Music & Audio, and Books & Reference.

Now, the search giant has decided to add eight new categories to make app-finding specific and easy. These categories include apps from ‘Art & Design’, ‘Auto & Vehicles’, ‘Beauty’, ‘Dating’, ‘Events’, ‘Food & Drink’, ‘House & Home’, and ‘Parenting’.

These apps will not only make it easy for users to find specific apps but also improve the browsing experience.
