Android is currently the most used mobile operating system in the world and it also has one of the biggest collection of apps and games than any other OS. Google Play Store is the primary source and for downloading Android apps and games and it is filled with millions of unique apps and hundreds of them are being added daily.
It might be difficult to discover the best among the lot and it would not be ideal to consider an app with over a million downloads and good ratings the best as the developer might have relied on ads or other kinds of promotional activities to achieve that. Also some apps might not have a lot of downloads and many people might not even have heard about it but it might be the best at what it does.
So to help the millions of Android users to identify the best apps and games from the list, Google releases a list every year with the apps and games that it thinks are the best. This usually happens towards the end of the year but Google is a bit early this time and it has already released its list of best apps and games of 2017.
