Google has started rolling out a feature that only shows reviews on the Play Store that are based on the type of device you’re using, be it a phone, tablet / foldable, Chromebook, Android Auto, or wearable.
The change, which was announced in August 2021 as coming in “early 2022,” arrives as Google’s getting ready to launch a tablet and wearable of its own. As per the new change, in the reviews section of the Play Store, there’s now a notice to let you know that ratings are “verified,” and that you’re being shown feedback from people using the same type of device as you.
As per Google’s blog post, tablets and foldables are clubbed into the same category, as far as the new feature is concerned. Also, the Play Store will allow you to set your device type manually as well. If you go into the ratings and reviews section for an app, then tap the three-line filter button that appears before the reviews start, you can tell it to only show you reviews for your device model.
