Android Apps That Refined This Generation

Google has mentioned 10 apps (India-specific) that refined this generation. The list includes all the free popular apps such as WhatsApp, Truecaller, Paytm, Amazon India, Flipkart, JioSaavn (earlier known as Saavn), and MX Player (since the pre-OTT era), Hotstar, PhonePe, and ShareChat.
