Google Play Now Allows Pre-Registration for Upcoming Content

Soon after the latest update reached Google Play Store application, it started allowing customers to Pre-register for certain apps and games. Terminator Genisys: Revolution by Glu Mobile is the first one to witness the change. Pre-Registering upcoming content like games or app confirms that you’ll be notified on your Android device the second they’re available to download. It might also be helpful for developers to know the demand of the content in the market.

The app’s landing page has all the details one would expect, including a video, screenshots and a description except release date, price, device compatibility, country restriction. These titles have a Pre-register button where the Buy / Install / Update button is usually present. Pre-registering is not a paid service, it’s just notification service which will let you know when the content is ready to download. You can unregister and remove yourself from the list to be notified by tapping the button again.

This will prevent posting of app listing with no device compatibility on the Play Store; this is quite a sensible change. What is your opinion on this step? Were you expecting this or is it just some useless feature? Let us know in the comments section.
