Play Store to allow developers sponsor their apps


The Google Play store is looking for a way to help developers get their all noticed through search queries. Given that there are millions of apps on Okay Store it’s hard to find someone’s app easily or directly through the search option.

PlayStore to display sponsored apps on search query results

Google seems to be working on a solution for that problem – soon, we should start noticing sponsored results for our app queries, nested on the top of our results lists.

The new feature should help developers get discovered for a certain price, though, we are not aware of the cost, and we don’t know what kind of model Google will be employing – pay per click, per impression, or just over a time period.

We’re also curious to see how exactly the Play Store is going to start dealing with the sponsored ads, as more and more developers start paying for some first page space.
