Have you ever read the reviews in Google Play Store before downloading an app, paid attention to how many of them there are, or how many stars the app has? Well, we all did and keep on doing it. Everybody would like to know whether something is worth it or not before having it. So reviews are everything for both new potential customers and app product managers. 

Potential customers look at the overall feedback that the app has on its downloading page. It’s the easiest method to decide, as they’re somewhere where we can all see, probably without not even scrolling. Maybe you’re also one of the review writers on some of your favorite apps.

From another perspective, Google Play Store reviews are not only for customers to see; they’re also a good way for the app developers and product managers to consider and develop for the better. In a way, Google Play Store reviews provide vital data for customer service and social listening. What they want, you serve; any problems occurred, you solve. 

So now you might be in either of these groups above, and this article is for you. Received bad reviews on Google Play Store? How can you read them? Improved for the better, so how can you remove them? Want to see all your reviews at once? How so? Well, you’ll get the answers right away.

How to Remove Bad Reviews from Google Play Store as a Product Owner?

Are you a developer or a product manager? Did you get some bad reviews on your launched apps? Well, we have a solution for that also: Reporting them.

Trying to delete bad reviews might not seem like the most truthful and healthy way for your customers to see the main idea about your app, but there may be other reasons for your need to delete the previous bad reviews. You may have advanced the app for the better, or the review was too old, inappropriate, and does not represent the current situation of your app anymore. Or maybe you just think that you don’t deserve it. Let’s follow the instructions below to remove your bad reviews on Google Play Store!

1st Step: Make sure that the review you want to delete is against the policy of the Google Play Store.

Below are the types of reviews that are not allowed to be on Google Play Store and can be reported:

  • Spam and fake content
  • Off-topic
  • Restricted content
  • Illegal content
  • Terrorist content
  • Sexually explicit content
  • Offensive content
  • Dangerous and derogatory content
  • Impersonation
  • Conflict of interest

2nd Step: If one of the content types above involves your target review that you want to remove, then you may report them as “Spam”. This way Google will take them into a scope and see if they’re really inappropriate. 

How to Search Google Play Store Reviews?

If you’re a developer or a product manager and want to find a specific review on one of your apps launched, follow the lead. 

If you’ve already launched an app, you must know Google Play Console. For those who don’t know, it’s the monitoring panel for app product managers. So now the 1st Step is to go to your Play Console account and find “Ratings and Reviews” then click on “Reviews”.

2nd Step serves you three options on how you’d like to browse your reviews. You can browse them by:

  • Filter: Select from the available filters to display reviews based on specific parameters such as date, language, reply state, star rating, app version, device, and more.
  • Sort: Select the “Sort by” drop-down to display reviews sorted by rating, date, or helpfulness.
  • Search: If you remember specific words from the review you’re trying to find, type them into the search box to find the review you’re looking for.
