Google introduces new Play Store categories


The next time you make your trip to the Play Store, you would probably want to check out the new categories Google has introduced recently.

Google says it is to improve the overall search experience. Here are the new categories Google will be adding:

  • Art & Design
  • Auto & Vehicles
  • Beauty
  • Dating
  • Events
  • Food & Drink
  • House & Home
  • Parenting

But that’s not all, Google will also be renaming two existing categories. “Transportation” will be renamed to “Maps & Navigation” while “Media & Video” will be renamed to “Video Players & Editors”.

If you are a registered developer on the Play Store, you can choose one of these new categories today via your Developer Console. Right now we are not seeing the new categories on our Android device, so it may be a while before we see a public launch.
