For example, there are some apps on Google Play that tablet users are more inclined to use, but smartphone users may overlook the same app. As a result, device-based ranking can also provide more accurate and transparent information about program ratings.

These changes are scheduled to be applied to smartphone users in the first step from November (November-December). For example, in this case, a user who has opened a Google Play account in Japan can see the points provided by other Japanese users.
