In a bid to make it more user-friendly, Google has reportedly introduced a new feature that will show reviews on the Play Store based on the type of device a person is using.
The update, promised in early 2022 in August 2021, has now arrived as Google prepares to introduce its own tablet and wearable, a media source reports.
In the reviews section of the Play Store, there’s now a notice to let you know that ratings are “verified and you get feedback from people using the same type of device as you,” the report says.
This feature is becoming increasingly important as Android apps expand into even more form factors; someone using Google’s upcoming Pixel tablet will experience an app very differently than someone running it on a Chromebook.
“Early next year, we’ll update the ratings to reflect the type of device users are browsing Play on, whether that’s: tablets and foldables, Chrome OS, Wear, or Auto,” the company said in a blog post last year.
“This will give users a better impression of the experience they can expect from the device they are using,” he added.
The tech giant had mentioned that ratings help people decide which apps to download and they are taken into consideration for showing and placement on Play Store.
