Google Playstore’s ‘Best of 2018’ Winners released; PUBG wins the Fan Favourite Game

Back in October and November, Google allowed the users to vote for the best apps and games of 2018. We are only left with a few days before Christmas and the beginning of a new year and Google has officially declared the best and the user’s favourite apps and games in different segments. These apps are highly popular among the masses and have clocked millions of downloads. People have liked them and have voted for them. They are already getting considered as fan favourites, and the list has become an enlarged one through separate additions like the Fan Favourite category and so on.

Voting on the Google Play User’s Choice Awards is closed, here are the winners for 2018. This is the first year that a “fan favourite” was elected in three categories: games, apps, movies. There are other categories too, including TV shows, ebooks and audiobooks.

Users voted PUBG Mobile as the Best Game of 2018, and it bagged the Fan Favorite award as well. The fan favourite app of the year went to Google’s own YouTube TV, and the fan’s choice of movie was Avengers: Infinity War.

Marvel has a boosted presence in the movie category, clinching 4 spots in the Top 5. Only Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a non-Marvel movie that has managed to make its way in the Top 5.

We have compiled the list of prime categories and winners below for the US that are supposed to vary by region, although there are granular categories listed on the main Google Play Awards page, that include categories like ‘Most Entertaining’ app and ‘Best Hidden Gem’ that are ideal for users wanting to get a taste of new apps.
