Google Play Store now penalizes poorly performing apps in rankings

Bad Android Apps Officially Getting Downgraded in Google Play Store

Developers who want to monitor app performance can access the Play Console to identify and fix quality issues.

For better-performing apps, Google today had announced it is rolling out a change to its Play Store meaning those that experience fewer crashes and those that don't drain your smartphone battery that will have ranked higher than apps with bugs and other performance issues. Apps that frequently crash, eat up excess battery, or render slowly will find themselves much lower in Play Store searches.

The update was released to a small subset of Play Store users this past week, and Google says they've already seen a difference in user retention-the higher quality apps that are being filtered to the top are used more and uninstalled less.

Engineers created the new system after they conducted an internal study of all one-star ratings and discovered that half of these negative reviews mentioned app stability as the main factor for the low score. To counter this, Google, using its Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning is looking to persuade developers to enable apps with seamless functioning.

Given this information you can work out how best to use resources to make improvements, which will in turn lead to higher ratings and better ranking by the search algorithm. In a recent blog post on the Android Developers Blog, we learn about how Google is helping people find quality applications and games in Google Play.

Earlier this month, Google announced a new security feature called Google Play Protect which aims to keep Android apps safe from malware and other security threats.

The decision by Google to roll out an algorithm that weeds out the bad apps comes at a time when global app downloads continue to defy the concept of peak app.

For example, Android Vitals automatically analyzes app reports to show devs pertinent info about app issues, while pre-launch reports show the results of testing an alpha or beta app on popular consumer devices.
