Google has been sending out notices to developers across the world, explaining that it will limit their apps’ visibility, or remove them from the play store completely if they violate the company’s policy.
Even though the move may get rid of a ton of apps, it could wind up making the Play Store more useful. There are thousands upon thousands of so-called “shooter apps” that have been around for years without being updated, and many of those have been rendered useless by newer versions of Android. Not only that, but an overly crowded Play Store often makes it hard to find what you’re looking for.
The Google Play Store will soon be much easier to search through and potentially much safer to use.
