Last year, we saw that the Google Play store had received a new layout which had a darker green coat of paint which was straight in line with the material colors published by Google. Google earlier this year also introduced a new feature on the Play Store where the developers of paid apps were able to make their apps free for a limited time in order to promote the free apps from the various developers.
This feature is very handy for the apps which are used scarcily because of its high price and if the developers want to showcase the features of their paid apps, they can use this handy feature. One thing with this was that we sometimes couldn’t find which app was free for the limited time to worth downloading. This will change now with a new section introduced to the Google Play Store known as “Free App of the Week”.
Google has started to do the promotion of this apps by introducing a new section on Play Store. As the name suggests, the new Free App of the Week section promotes one free app every week. Introduced a week back, the first app to be advertised was Ultimate Guitar Tabs & Chords, which is originally priced at $2.99 again.
This new section in Google Play Store does more than promoting free apps. It helps game lovers and users to avail great apps for free also saving the time required to search for likeable free items.
The new section can be accessed both on desktop as well as on mobile. All you need to do is just scroll down on the Apps page of the Play Store to find the new section. If the Free App of the Week matches your taste, you can go for it, or else, wait for next week to see what Google brings in to the section. This will be continued by Google every week and its a handy feature for the Android users.
