Google Play users choose streaming app and Battle Royale game as their best of 2021


Here are a whole bunch of other “cutting edge” applications

The Google Play Store has no shortage of apps and games by any means, but with the volume of new titles released every year, it’s always worth highlighting which are the best among them. So here’s what the Play Store editors (and you!) Have chosen as the cream of the crop.

In the Users’ Choice section this year, we weren’t able to select our favorite book or movie like we were able to last year. When it comes to apps and games, the nominees included Magic the Gathering Arena, the Wix website generation platform, and the Clubhouse audio social network. However, the number one app that you and I apparently voted on was the Paramount + streaming service owned by ViacomCBS – not as surprising as I would have thought since Disney + won the honor last year – while our favorite game of 2021 turned out to be Garena. Free Fire MAX, a fiery battle royale that allows everyone to fight fast.


For Play Store editors, Balance: Meditation & Sleep was their pick for app of the year. We can’t really blame them for choosing, it seems society lacks peace, calm and positivity. Their best game for 2021 was Pokémon Unite, which brings some welcome new twists to the franchise that is all about catching them all!
