Android Market Gets ‘Related’ Tab

Yesterday, when we posted the video of Android 2.3 Gingerbread UI exposed through Voice Search, many of you must have noticed a new tab in the Android Market. Since the video was in some alien language (at least for me), I could not understand what that new tab in Android Market is for.

Well, just now I was using my sister’s HTC Legend and opened up the Market to update a few applications that I noticed a new tab. The new Related’ tab shows users applications which are similar to the current application the user is viewing.

However, when I checked the Android Market on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S) I did not find the new Related’ tab. Ironically, the Legend runs on Android 2.1 while the Galaxy S is running on Android 2.2. Hopefully, Google will roll out this new tab’ feature soon to all Android devices.

Update: Looks like Google is slowly rolling out the ‘Related’ tab to all Android devices. I just got the “Related’ tab in my Samsung Galaxy S.
