Google Play To Demote Low Quality Apps From it's Store

Aiming to provide the best apps to its users, Google announced its decision to demote bad apps in its search rankings by including app quality signals in its ranking algorithms. This is a very welcome development by google, as this will really help in the display and recommendation of productive and useful Apps to its users. In other words, when a user searched for an app on Play Store, those apps with a lot of negative reviews or a history of bad performance will not feature on the list, which will further result in a drop in its ratings.

The move comes as part of Google's initiative to promote high-quality apps on its portal, according to The Verge. Earlier, the tech giant announced that faulty apps will be identified using Machine Learning technique, apart from creating a program called 'Android Excellence', which will single out the apps that function well.


Google has tweaked the ranking algorithms even further to ensure bad apps are ranked so low as into oblivion. This then means developers now have to make sure their apps are stable (do not crash), perform well and are consistent. So  local developers better take notice and put in good work accordingly.
