Google Play Store is the official store on any device that runs on Android OS. Well, it seems that the newest version of the store comes with a new feature that allows you to filter out the applications that you’ve already installed on your device.

This is great, especially when you are looking for a new application, which is similar to some applications that are installed on your device. This way, instead of viewing the applications that are already installed on your mobile handset, you will see only the applications that are not found on your device.

You should know that this is not the first time when this feature has been spotted on the Google Play Store application. The toggle has been firstly spotted back in June 2016, but at that time, Google was just testing out the feature. It seems that the feature has finally passed all the tests and it has now been released to the latest STABLE version of the Google Play Store.



The new feature will surely be enjoyed by most of the users, but at the same time, it will be awesome for the developers of applications. Users will no longer need to scroll through a “top app” list to bypass all the apps that they have already installed on their handsets. This will also allow the less prominent applications to gain more exposure and increased downloaded numbers.

The new feature can already be tested out by opening the Google Play Store application and head to any top chart tabs (such as “Top Free Apps”, “Top Grossing”, “Top Free Games” etc.) and disable the “show installed apps” toggle that’s found at the top of the page.
