Here are the top Android apps and games of the year


BeReal, Breathwrk, Papers, Please, and Dislyte are definitely worth checking out


Developers submit thousands of apps and games on the Play Store each year. Google commemorates a handful of these submissions with its annual Best of Play awards in December. The awards span various categories and even include a Users’ Choice award, for which Google takes votes around a month before announcing the winners. The company kicked off voting early in November this year, and we finally have all the results.


Google shared a list of 2022’s best apps and games today. As expected, the innovative social media app BeReal has picked up the Users’ Choice award for the best app of 2022. Apex Legends Mobile, the mobile version of EA’s popular battle royale-hero shooter, has been awarded the Users’ Choice best game of the year.

Dream by WOMBO, an AI-powered art generation tool that lets you create stunning artwork using text and contextual images, picked up the overall best app of 2022 award, while Apex Legends Mobile bagged its second victory as the overall best game of 2022. In addition, Google also awarded several other apps and games based on various criteria. Check out the full list in the section below.
