Google Play’s Family section now has free apps of the week


google play free app family

One of the main reasons Amazon’s Appstore got a lot of attention in the early days is because they offered up a free paid app or game every day. It looks like Google is catching on to the trend.

The company has added a new feature to the family section that will offer up a free app of the week. The listing currently shows that it’s “By PBS Kids,” so we’re not sure if this is a PBS-specific promotion or if Google will let others in on the fun.

Said PBS app being offered up is Daniel Tiger Grr-ific Feelings, a collection of mini games themed around the children’s show. You can find it right here if you’re interested in grabbing it for your child.

The only other question we have is whether Google will ever look to do something like this for the entirety of Google Play. We certainly would love to see it, though there have been enough free apps and insane deals over the years that we wouldn’t blame them if they don’t.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    1. Actually free if you go directly through the family section. See attached screen recording.

  2. When you click on the link it shows it as $2.99, but if you go directly to the play store and click on the banner for the free app it will allow you to download the app for free.

  3. Thanks guys. Figured that out. I ended up doing it via the app on my phone, through the family zone banner. . Thanks again!
