Google names the best apps and games on Google Play Store for 2023


30 November 2023

Google Play began asking users to vote for the greatest games and apps of 2023 in early November. One month later, the results are in, and we now have a long list of titles to look into, as they now have the approval of not only Google's editors, but also real users.

Google has the finest overall apps and games, as well as the best multi-device apps and games. Then, Google takes a step further, categorizing the greatest applications and games as best for enjoyment, best for personal growth, best hidden gem, and best with AI. We've included some of Google's suggestions below.

If you're curious about how real users voted, the results aren't all that impressive. ChatGPT, OpenAI's conversation bot, is the #1 app. Monopoly Go is the game to play. As we previously stated, neither app is really intriguing, but both teams deserve praise. Check out the listings below, which include direct links to Google Play so you can try them out for yourself.
