Google test feature helps users to compare on the apps on the playstore

Google might introduce a feature that will let users compare apps listed on the PlayStore. The Compare Apps feature, as the name suggests, shows direct comparisons between similar apps for the convenience of users. Google is currently testing the feature so it is limited and available to some users on version 22.4.28 of the PlayStore app. The compare apps display popular apps that are similar to the current listing, comparing them based on things like ease of use, visual quality, and if the app supports offline playback and streaming, etc.


The compare apps section shows up on individual app listings near the bottom of the page and is currently limited to popular media players, Android Police first reported.

Google PlayStore has over 2 million apps and it gets difficult for users to decide on which app to download. The comparisons make it convenient for users to select the best app. Google asks users for feedback and the report speculates that the data displayed underneath the apps are based on user-feedback Google takes from users by asking simple questions. It is not clear when Google will roll out this feature more widely and if it does, the roll out is likely to be a server-side switch.
