Google Stands Against the Android Crashing Applications

Bad Android Apps Officially Getting Downgraded in Google Play Store

App developers who favor speed to market as opposed to actual app quality could find themselves punished by Google.

According to a new blog post, the company is actively focussing on privileging apps that exhibit stellar stability, and penalising those that show "excessive battery usage, slow render times, and crashes".

Google is now incorporating the new features of the ranking algorithms, which will allow for the bad Android apps to fall in the rankings on Google Play Store.

App developers need to be aware of this change, especially if they've received low ratings due to quality issues in the past: Unless you're highly ranked, searches in the Play Store likely account for quite a few of your installs and this change could cause that number to drop.

As for the color options, the Note 8 is expected to be available in Maple Gold, Midnight Black, Orchid Grey, and Deep Sea Blue. As it happened with the Samsung Galaxy S8 , we now know the design language as well as the hardware components of the phone.

Explaining the rationale for this change Ahn notes that in an internal analysis of app reviews on Google Play, it was noticed that half of 1-star reviews mentioned app stability. "This results in higher quality apps being surfaced in the Play Store more than similar apps of lower quality", Google stated. So while Google still does use this as a metric in their algorithm, it's just not as important as it was before.

The second positive thing is that Google makes the developers optimize their apps in order to remain relevant in the Google Play Store and increase the chances of downloading apps by users. This will further push these apps down in the ratings. The results can be seen when you're manually searching for an application or game, as well as when you're just scrolling through the home page of the Google Play Store. The company will penalize such apps by demoting them in its search rankings.

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.
