The search giant Google has announced that the Play Store will get 8 new app categories to improve the overall search experience. The new categories include – Art & Design, Auto & Vehicles, Beauty, Dating, Events, Food & Drink, House & Home and Parenting. This will help people more quickly and easily discover apps in the Play Store.
It will also rename some existing categories. Transportation category will be renamed Maps & Navigation, and the Media & Video category will be renamed Video Players & Editors.
These new categories will be available on Google Play within 60 days. Developers will be able to select application type and category under Categorization. “If you choose a newly added category for an app before the category is available for users, your current app category may change,” said Google.
