Types of featured app lists

To help users discover great apps on Google Play, there are many lists where apps are featured.

Note: Apps that are deemed unsuitable for a general audience may not be promoted.

Here are some of the lists where apps are featured on Google Play:

Popular

  • Top Free: Most popular free apps of all-time
  • Top Paid: Most popular paid apps of all-time
  • Top Grossing: Apps and games that generate the most revenue, including app purchases and in-app payments
  • Trending Apps: Apps showing installation growth in the last 24 hours

New

To determine new apps that are less than 30 days old, Top New lists use the date of first availability; this includes the first time an app was published, or the first time an app was made available in a location.

Note: The time period when an app is exclusively in Alpha or Beta (without a Production APK) has no effect on its first availability date or its ability to be on a "Top New" list.

  • Top New Free: Most popular free apps less than 30 days old
  • Top New Paid: Most popular paid apps less than 30 days old
