Google has resumed showing the size and rating of the app install package in Google Play search results

1 min read

Earlier in the Google Play Store, such as search results and leaderboards will show the application size and ratings, but later Google decided to hide this information directly.

After hiding this information, many users are very inconvenient when trying to browse the leaderboards and search for applications, because they can no longer directly decide whether to download the application through ratings.

Of course, if you want to check the size of the application and the score, it is still possible. You need to click to enter the application home page to see this type of attribute information.

The trouble is that users can waste a lot of time and operate inconveniently if they click on one by one. Therefore, hiding this information by Google also causes inconvenience to users.

A few days ago, Google released a new version of the Play Store to restore this information. Both the leaderboard and the search results page will display these properties.

Showing the size of the application is actually very important, because downloading larger applications or games in mobile data traffic may have additional costs.

The direct display of the application’s size can also make a more informed choice in combination with the rating score, so it seems important to display the size and rating.
