Every year Google holds the Google I/O conference for the developers. At the event, the tech giant also recognises the contribution of developers to the apps platform. Google nominates the best apps in the Play Store, and it has already unleashed the nominees for Google Play Awards 2017. The winners shall be announced at the main event.

The apps have been selected by Googlers and are divided into 12 categories, right from the Best Android Wear Experience to the Best Multiplayer Game. Every category has its own eligibility criteria ranging from high star rating to overall technical performance. Another criterion is that whether the app has received a major update in the preceding year. Google states that nominees were chosen “much like last year by cross-functional teams throughout Google who work hand-in-hand with the relevant categories and product areas.”

By announcing the nominees, Google also tells us about the apps that have performed outstandingly throughout the year. An excellent way to make users try out these apps in case they haven’t. Take a look at the list of nominees and install the apps that look interesting to you. These apps are supposed to be awesome, which is why they made it to the nominations, right?
