Smart search is the next major update Play Store is prompted with. The new searching style is all helpful enabling more conversion rate even to the ‘connected apps’ rather than dated ‘similar apps’. That is when you search the keyword ‘shopping’ on the search panel of Play Store, it lists a bunch of shopping apps. Below shopping apps you could see other section like ‘coupon’ or ‘food’, which are directly and indirectly connected to shopping apps. This really helps to gain more visibility for the so called connected apps.
