Google Play adding app size and download count in search results  03/27/2020 14:12:00 
Choosing an app is sometimes an easy, sometimes a bit more complicated task, and Google is now making sure to save you one or two additional taps. Android Police reports that now, Google Play Store will be displaying additional information directly in its search results. Reportedly, Google is going to include app size and download count alongside an apps info in the search results. Previously, we could only check an apps rating, category and developer and we werent able to see app size or download count in the list of apps, for this we had to go into the app.Understandably, such details are available only for apps that we dont have installed. Unfortunately, an apps size may be a feature exclusive for certain regions for now.

The update seems to be minor, but it may save us taps and therefore prove to be useful, when searching for an app and determining its popularity just from the search results, or maybe when trying to decide whether or not you want to download a bigger app using just mobile data. Its important to note that this is a server-side update, so there is no option to manually install it and if you dont have it yet, you will just have to wait for it.
