Google Announces Google Play Early Access Making Beta Apps Easier To Discover

Even though hardware and software operate on completely different platforms and require equally different approaches when it comes to development and design, without their integration, today’s smartphone era would have died out in its early stages. An upgrade in hardware sees a corresponding update in software as gadgets become more capable of performing complex tasks, which in turn ends up enhancing the end user’s overall experience.

To that end, Google’s made some important updates to Play Store today that should facilitate in growing the vast amount of apps the store has to offer. Google Play will now allow beta apps to be discoverable in search results, giving users more control when experimenting with the countless offerings that it has to offer. This will allow users to test users and give their respective feedback to the developers, who in turn will have greater access to market expectations from their apps.
