Need an Android App, Game Refresh? These Are Google's Top Picks for 2023
These are the best apps, games, and ebooks across Google Play this year, according to Google. The list includes hits like Honkai: Star Rail, Monopoly Go, Imprint, and some old favorites.
It's yearly roundup time, and today's launches include Google's list of the best apps, games, and books from 2023 on Google Play.
Of the 25 categories, the list highlights 36 apps, over 40 games, and 10 ebooks, so folks looking for something new to try have plenty of options.
New for 2023 are the Best with AI, Best Game for Good, Best Multi-device App and Game, and Best for Google Play Games on PC categories.
Not surprisingly, ChatGPT—a rival to Google's own Bard AI that landed on Android in July—didn't make the Best with AI category (though it is the users' choice app). Google instead gave the category to Character AI, which lets you "chat with ultra-realistic AI personalities." One odd decision: Amazon Prime Video is the best app for cars, though presumably it's passengers who are watching, not drivers.
