Google’s Choices for the Global Market
For 2022 the company decided to change things up a bit. Last year, for example, Google made a list with the podium of each category. This resulted in a list of 40 apps. But in 2022, the Search Giant only made a list of the winners. We don’t know why the company chose to change its approach.
Anyway, in company’s official websiteGoogle gave some honorable mentions to other apps in each category.
Taking into account only the global result, the best app chosen by Google was Dream by WOMBO. And the best game was Apex Legends Mobile. These were the company’s choices for the Brazilian market as well. However, in the popular vote, the chosen apps were different, as you can see in the list above.
The company also selected the best apps for tablets and Chromebooks. In the case of tablets, the application chosen was Tower of Fantasy. And for Chromebooks the best app was the Roblox game.
In the best good app category, Google’s choice for the global market was the app The STIGMA App🇧🇷 This is a mental health app. Here people can talk about their problems with other people whose problems are similar. It’s like some kind of therapy, but without being with a psychologist.
