Google Announces New Tools for Advertising Mobile Games

New Google tools helps apps games get more visibility on Play Store Here's how Google will help you find more games and save on the Play Store

Now, the process is "much more nuanced than that", Hsiao said, as players are more likely to search for specific games. This will drastically boost some low ranking apps up the list, thanks to diehard fans or just very committed users.

This is an area where several third parties already compete for developer attention, so it make sense that Google would join the fray.

Wednesday's announcement accompanies two other measures Google revealed earlier in the week that are created to increase app visibility and sales.

Google is also allowing developers to offer sales and increase purchases with a new strikethrough pricing feature. On the app, you need to scroll way, way down to find it, which is fair enough, we guess.

That is not the only change coming to Google Play Store however.

Lastly AdMob is announcing they're bringing Google's video app install advertising demand from AdWords to AdMob. The apps people have big engagement in will be more prominent on Google Play Store, which is basically an algorithm change. The customers will be able to see the savings on different apps through the sales and promotions. This lets developers showcase the historical price for their apps, which apparently drove up the install rate by 3-20 times normal in the Google pilot phase.

46% of the surveyed said that they played mobile games for more than 15 hours a week of which 56% were male, the report said.

Not just app pricing, Google is also working on improving visibility of games on Play Store. While developers have been allowed to drop their prices to free on Apple's iOS platform nearly since the inception of the App Store, Google has not allowed games to drop to the free price point and then return to a paid price point on the Play Store. This extends to mobile, virtual reality, and augmented reality, as well, as Google has stepped things up on Day 1 with their annual Developer Day for all things Google Play and Android gaming.
