The Best of Play awards for 2022 have been announced, celebrating the top apps on Google’s Play Store.

Google Play recognizes some of the platform’s most popular apps every year.

The annual Best of Play awards looks at apps and games across different devices and genres, highlighting the year’s best apps.

Google Play’s yearly awards are broken down into apps and games, then into separate categories under those two umbrellas.

You’ve likely heard of many of these apps, as they tend to be pretty popular.

But if not, the Best of Play awards is a great way to find new apps and games that you might enjoy.

The awards kick off with the overall winners for both games and apps. Dream by WOMBO took home the Best App award.

Dream is an AI art tool that lets you create beautiful designs in seconds with just a text prompt.

The Users’ Choice winner for Google Play’s best apps was the breakout social media platform BeReal.

BeReal challenges its users to share candid images randomly during the day, prompted by the app.
