Google Introduces Pre-Registration For New Android Apps On Google Play
To keep users updated about the arrival and launch of new Android apps and games, Google has started offering pre-registration feature on its Google Play Store. This means users won’t have to rely on suppositions and rumors about the latest apps. Once they register themselves by tapping the pre-register icon, they will receive all the information about new apps from Google itself.
Terminator Genisys: Revolution by Glu Mobile has become the first to utilize the feature. All the Android customers can take advantage of the feature free of cost. The users of Android devices will be enabled to pre-register for apps and games of their interest unconditionally. That is, even if they register themselves for certain apps, they don’t necessarily need to buy those apps.
In other words, the pre-registration feature is meant to keep the potential buyers updated about the new arrivals in Google Play Store without imposing the condition of sticking up with their choices. In fact, they can change their interests whenever they want to.
Google’s pre-registration may not benefit the average developer, as observed the TechCrunch, but it can serve as a promotional tool for popular games or other big budget apps. In particular, games that are scheduled for release alongside movies can create the pre-launch hype by virtue of this feature.
Although Apple also allows users to pre-order music albums and movies, but it doesn’t allow pre-registration for apps. Therefore, Android can possibly entice more developers with its promotional tools.
