Google Play new categories?

Hi guys,

I have noticed that since the beginning of February when Google’s play new categories went live, we have been experiencing a significant drop in our downloads (and revenues). Is it just me or others feel the same? Also, in our apple appstore ASO we have chosen to use a non buffed category (without much success). What is your google play strategy with games and new categories?

Thanks

I don’t see new categories. At least for polish store and for US at appannie.
Anyway I didn’t noticed anything significant in downloads change. I expect to have more downloads when these new categories go live, because it should make discoverability better.
