Chrome Web Store adds featured badge to extension
Over the past few years, Google has worked to clean up, strengthen privacy, and increase security on the Chrome Web Store. The latest effort introduces badges to the Chrome Web Store to better highlight high-quality extensions.
Extensions awarded the Featured badge have been manually reviewed by “Chrome team members” and follow “Google’s technical best practices and meet a high standard of user experience and design”.
This includes “using the latest platform APIs and respecting end-user privacy”, as well as “providing an enjoyable and intuitive experience”. The Play Store listing should also contain quality screenshots and be detailed.
Chrome developers can submit a review request to get the featured badge from this support page under My Article > I want to name my extension. The workflow does not appear online yet. and additional details will be available here.
There is also the Established Publisher badge for developers who have “verified their identity and demonstrated compliance with Developer Program policies”. The latter specifically entails “a consistent positive track record with Google Services and compliance with the Developer Program Policy”.
When viewing a Chrome Web Store listing, badges appear below the extension name in blue. The hover allows end users to learn more about each badge.
