Much like Steam's Early Access program, Google is rolling out a new category on its Play Store meant to showcase a few new upcoming apps that aren't quite ready for everyone but that daring users can try.
Early access is a concept that existed before Minecraft but it has seen a resurgence since the brick building game came out. The idea being that apps in early access are updated quite often even if they can be lacking in polish.
We'll see if it attracts the same sort of problems that Steam had to deal with like developers abandoning their apps and more.
Google hasn't detailed when to expect this new category.
