A new section has been introduced in the Google Play Store by the search giant known as “Android Excellence.”The new section can be located in the refurbished Editor’s Choice segment. The newly released section is deemed to promote apps that have better performance, design, or follow the paramount practices given by the company itself.
The company said, “The new collections will display games and apps that provide incredible experiences to users on Android, have great design, technical performance, localization, device optimization, and use many of our best practices.”

According to the company, the collections will be renewed quarterly. A list of complete first batch of games and apps in the Android Excellence collections is mentioned below.
