The Play Store now features a ‘Your device’ search filter making it easier to discover compatible apps and games



Google is looking to improve the discoverability of apps and games optimized for your devices and now has added a ‘Your device’ search filter to the Play Store’s search feature.

The new ‘Your device’ search filter is part of a larger effort to improve user’s experiences with Android devices with recently enabling remote install of apps from your phone to your Android TV. If you also have a Wear OS watch then when the ‘Your device’ tab is select it will display your Android TV, your Watch and ‘This device’ which in this example is likely your phone.

Note: You must first have need to complete a text search in the Play Store in order for this feature to work and when it does, managing all your Android devices like Phones, tablets, TV devices and Watches is going to be a lot easier.
