It’s always made sense to pre-order books, movies and TV shows on digital marketplaces, but why hasn’t anyone ever thought to allow users to pre-register for apps and games? Well, Google has. The company has recently implemented a new feature that’ll let you sign up to be notified when an app or game is available for download on Google Play.
The first known Google Play listing to be using the feature is Glu’s Terminator Genisys: Revolution game. We can see developers using pre-register listings to help promote their apps and games ahead of launch and give users a landing page to learn more about what’s coming ahead of its actual arrival.
And with a notification as soon as the app or game goes live users won’t have to worry about forgetting to download it once it’s available. It’s a neat feature that we hope more developers will take advantage of down the line. Give it a try at Terminator’s Google Play listing right here (especially if you’re actually a Terminator fan, because the game is looking kind of awesome).
