While the google Play Store is basically a treasure trove of apps, it can be quite hard to find the right apps for your needs. To make things easier, Google already has a lot of great resources. That includes new releases, monthly editorial picks, and a kid-friendly program that contains teacher-approved apps.
But it seems Google was not happy with all of those. Now, it's planning to bring the Shorts-style series into the Google Play Store to highlight the latest and greatest android apps. Similar to Shorts on other platforms, these videos on the app store could indeed make it easier to discover hard-to-find hidden gems.

Regarding where the Shorts-like videos will be on the Google Play Store, they will be on the top of the homepage. The experience will be very similar to YouTube Shorts that appear on the homepage of YouTube on a desktop. Also, there will be multiple episodes available for each series.
