There are many sites on the Internet where you can compare the specifications of gadgets such as phones, laptops and cameras.But it is difficult to compare applications in the same way. However, Google is testing a feature in the Play Store that allows you to do just that.
According to Android Police, if you have this feature, you will see a new comparison table below the comments on the app page. In the GIF obtained from the publication, the section shows VLC directed against other players with measures such as ease of use, offline playback, casting and controls listed to evaluate applications against each other.
Currently, the Play Store simply displays the names of similar apps below the app page.

This is a smart idea because the comparison table allows you to check which players have specific features that may interest you; the possibility of streaming or casting in case of VLC.
Android police noted that the feature is currently visible for the Play Store version 22.4.28, but will only appear for some users and selected apps. Since this is just a test, there is no guarantee that Google will release it for all users, but I certainly hope they do.
