Google on Sunday introduced a new feature to its Google Play Store after allowing users to pre-register for upcoming Android apps.
Glu Mobile’s Terminator Genisys: Revolution is the first title to take advantage of the feature, reported Android Police.
Interested users are required to just tap the pre-register icon (which is where “download” would usually be) to show their interest.
Android customers are not required to pay anything for pre-registration and it is not mandatory to download or buy the app once it is live.
An alert is set up by the process that prompts a user once the app is available. It is not a lock-in, since users can cancel their interest if they have a change of heart.
Pre-registration is not meant for average developer, but it could prove handy for games that are timed for release alongside films.
