Google Play is a One-Stop Shop for Discovering and Enjoying Apps
“Since 2012, Google Play has been a one-stop shop for discovering and enjoying your favorite apps, games, and digital content. This week we’re launching ‘Offers’ — a new tab in the Google Play Store app,” wrote David Winer, a product manager at Google Play, in a blog post about the announcement. The new tab is located in the navigation bar at the bottom of the Google Play app, which makes it an easy place to quickly check for deals when you’re searching through the marketplace.
