Google will check apps by new developers more thoroughly

Rather than make these screens part of setup that would be shown to new users only, Google says "These new screens will be displayed the first time a user opens Google Play after receiving an upcoming update". The additional apps that would be listed will be based on their popularity (we presume in the Play Store - Google has not specified this parameter in their announcement), and these options will be displayed in a random order so as to not cause any further prejudice and bias.

From there you will have the choice to directly install the recommended apps and will be guided through the setup procedure, including setting the new search engine or browser as default.

The European Commission slapped Google with three multi-billion fines in each case, which Google has contested. The tech giant has now released a new update for the Google Play Store, and as always the latest update comes with some bug fixes and minor performance improvements. "Bad-faith developers often try to get around this by opening new accounts or using other developers' existing accounts to publish unsafe apps", he explained.

The app, however, was found to have code that fraudulently clicks on ads without the user realizing it, something that gobbles up data and drains the phone battery (Google banned the app, and several others, after BuzzFeed's report was published). It will also evolve the implementation based on feedback, and if I know the European Union like I think I do, they'll be asking for Google to not give its preinstalled apps preferential treatment on those screens. For example, device manufacturers had to pre-install the Google Search app and Chrome browser as a condition for licensing Google's app store.

Android users in Europe will see an option to download search apps and browsers and can now personalize the design, installing any app they want and choosing the types of default services to use such as Google Chrome. We've contacted the company to clarify how the implementation could change and will update the article accordingly. They are set by default on devices with the Android operating system, which is also from Google. When users subsequently go to the Play Store, they are shown the alternatives.
