Google Play Store adds a new feature and now it tells you which apps are trending.
Google Play released a small but important feature this week that will let you know when an app is increasing its downloads. It’s an icon that will show an up or down arrow next to the app, indicating whether the app’s downloads are increasing or decreasing.

So far, Google has not shared any details about how it takes this information. Does it measure downloads on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis or does it present us with a comparison to know how many additional downloads it has had? So it’s more of a visual indicator. It will help users to make a decision when they decide to download an app.
From what we have seen, the information seems to be presented in a regional way. For example, in countries such as the United States, the first place is occupied by Signal (which does not have a growth date, making us believe that the information is taken, at least, on a weekly basis).
There’s also a new feature that allows you to ‘archive’ apps that you don’t use frequently so the cache will be removed and kept in a state of ‘suspension’ until it is used again. This way, it is not necessary to delete an application if you want some free space on the device.
