Hi, This week, my game's install rate on Google Play Store has decreased from a sustained average of around 12,000/day, to just 5000/day, despite the fact that the game's search ranking in the store hasn't changed at all. Are you guys experiencing the same drop? UPDATE 1 - June 24th This problem seems to be generalized and many developers are affected by it. Possible cause: - The "Similar Apps" sections below game listing pages on Google Play Store seem to be buggy, and our games are no longer shown there at all. Not caused by: - Inaccurate installs reported on the console; - Android vitals; - Search rankings; - Summer exams; - World Cup. What we're doing: - Some of us have contacted Google to report this problem, and we expect replies sometime next week; - We'll be posting here any relevant updates in the following days. UPDATE 2 - June 25th - A developer group has been established on Discord at https://discord.gg/5Hny2Xy - Forum member @j0hka has managed to get a response from the live chat with Google: "The issue has already been escalated and our relevant team is investigating it." UPDATE 3 - June 26th - More devs have received replies from Google support, but so far nothing helpful. The replies have generally been "we're looking into it and we'll get back to you later"; - The Discord group has reached more than 260 members, and between 70 to 100 of them are being present there at any given time. UPDATE 4 - June 27th - More answers came from Google support, but still no useful ones; - The Discord group has more than 370 members. The invitation link above has been updated and is now functional again (the previous one expired); - An article was published on Gamasutra about this problem (see links and info about this on the Discord group in the "Pinned Messages"); - The Unity Forums moderator @zombiegorilla has requested to keep conversations on this thread civil and to refrain from mob mentality, and from "torches and pitchforks" attitudes against Google. UPDATE 5 - June 28th - A new reply came from Google Play Developer Support requesting evidence that the "Similar Apps" is malfunctioning, and a reply with the necessary evidence was provided to them; - The Discord group now has more than 650 members. UPDATE 6 - June 29th - Still no definitive information from Google, but they claim to be looking into the issue carefully; - The Discord group has reached more than 930 members. UPDATE 7 - July 6th - Even after evidence has been provided more than a week ago that the "Similar Apps" section is broken, the replies from Google have been the same generic templates, in which they haven't acknowledged any malfunction of their system, insisting that everything is fine, and they're "focusing on app quality"; - As such, it's unlikely that there will be any improvement coming soon, so the best we can hope for is that they'll change the algorithm again in a few months, and it will be less bad; - The Discord group now has more than 1500 members. UPDATE 8 - July 21st - It's been one month since this problem begun, and still no improvement; - Since yesterday, the "Similar Apps" section has been removed entirely from both the mobile version and the desktop version of Google Play Store. On mobile, pressing the green button called "Similar" yields an empty list with the message "No results found" (this is the case for any game or app); - The Discord group has reached more than 1700 members. UPDATE 9 - July 25th - The "Similar Apps" section is back since yesterday, but still broken.
