  • High market share
                            
Android has become the  most popular smartphone operating system in the world as of 2016. Since its release, android has been successful in capturing the market with the highest market share and is growing over the year strongly. In 2009, 6.8 million Android smartphones were sold.

There has been always a huge fight between Apple’s App store and Google’s play  Store. App deployed to the Google Play store are available for download by users within a few hours, compared to a few weeks for Apple’s App Store. An app can literally be updated multiple times a day on the Google play store, in response to user complaints and/or issues, while on the App store, your app would have to pass through the same lengthy process whenever you submit an update and/or bug fix. For a new app or game that might need to be constantly and speedily refined and updated in response to user feedback, the Play Store is the perfect platform
.
Another excellent feature of the Play Store which can help your app to be more polished is the ability to release an app as alpha and/or beta releases, which would be available only to members of a selected group of testers. With this, you can provide early access to a subset of users, and use their feedback to polish your app before finally releasing it to the general public. You can also perform a gradual/staged roll out of an update. With the staged rollout, you specify what percentage of users should get the update, and you can then monitor the feedback and crash reports before increasing the percentage of users to receive the update.
