As we near the end of 2021, Google India (much like last year) has announced this year’s best apps and games on the Play Store that were popular amongst users in India. In a blog post, Google has revealed that India saw a variety of apps gain popularity this year, with growth for e-learning apps seeing a massive uptick. So, let’s take a look at them, shall we?
Starting with the best app of 2021, Google chose Bitclass: Learn Anything. Live Together (Free). Bitclass is a digital learning app that offers free, interactive classes for a number of categories such as baking, dancing, and more. Google says that the app “reiterated the emergence of a digital learning culture in India fueled by innovative localized solutions.”
While Bitclass was chosen as the best app of 2021 by Google Play editors, the popular Battlegrounds Mobile India battle royale game was chosen as the best game of 2021.
Audio-based social app Clubhouse was picked as the best user’s choice app of 2021. According to Google, the fact that Clubhouse became the User’s Choice App of 2021 shows “India’s rising fondness for voice and audio-based platforms.” The user’s choice game is Garena Free Fire Max.
