- Google Play Store will get a new “Offers” tab at the bottom of the screen.
- This will be the fifth tab for users, making the UI look more cluttered.
- The Offers section will show limited-time deals on apps and games.
Google Play is introducing a new “Offers” tab to help users discover deals on games and apps. The company says the tab will surface deals across travel, shopping, media, fitness, and entertainment apps. The new tab now brings all offers into one place. The tab includes an “offers for apps you might like” section to help users discover deals that are relevant to them.
The tab will surface sales on games and in-game items, such as limited-time deals on magic orbs and tokens. It will also display rewards and bundled offers where apps are offering things like free delivery, free rides, and more rewards. The tab will encourage users to try something new by displaying apps that are offering 30 days free and other extended trials at no cost. The offers tab is located in the navigation bar at the bottom of the Google Play app.
Make sure you have the latest version of the Play Store available in case you don’t see it already. You can do so by selecting the Settings option from the drop-down menu under your profile image. The About option will show your current Play Store version and an option to update it.
Alistair Pott, Product Manager at Google Play said:
“India continues to be a major growth opportunity for developers to reach new users on Google Play. We’ve heard feedback from you — our global developer community — that you’d like more flexibility when choosing how much to charge for your apps and games in India.”
For developers, this move by Google will allow them to price their apps and games for as little as Rs 10. Google is also on the verge of introducing gift cards in India. On the Google support page, the company has listed India along with the terms of service as one of the countries to get the option of gift cards. The gift cards options will be available in Rs 500, Rs 1,000, and Rs 1,500.
