What is pre-registration?
Pre-registration is like signing up for a notification service. When a game is near the end of its development, Google allows developers to post it to the pre-registration section of the Play Store. It is then available to the public for pre-registration.
If you pre-register for a game, you’ll receive a notification in the Play Store app and via email when it’s fully released and ready to download. Since mobile games are considered to be the future of gaming, release date notifications are a great way to stay on top of the growing industry.
