The Google Play Games app on Android has some useful library and social features, but perhaps its best feature is game discovery. Now, to make finding your new favorite game easier, Google Play Games has added some very useful search filters.
Following a major redesign last year, Google has confirmed another new tweak. Within the search interface for Google Play Games, there are now some powerful new filters to narrow down results for a game or genre.
If you go to the search interface for Google Play Games or the “Dive Deeper” section of the homepage, you’ll see a new row of filters. These filters include paid/free games, if they have ads, if there are any in-app purchases, the game’s rating, if it’s optimized for tablets, the genre of the game, and even if it has accessibility options for the blind. It’s a pretty powerful set of filters that Google called “Fireball” internally.
These new search filters seem to be widely rolled out at this point through the latest app version which has been rolling out through the Play Store over the past few days.
