Google has sent a message to app developers with a warning about the upcoming changes in the work of the brand store Google Play. Innovation should appeal to those who do not use the services of the search giant. As it became known, Android devices will lose their dependence on the American Corporation.
When you first turn on any Android gadget at the configuration stage, the system prompts you to log in to your Google account to access branded services. If you do not, none of the company's applications, including Google Play, will not work. Therefore, you must install or update the software manually by downloading the APK files or use third-party application stores. Both methods are quite risky, as there is no guarantee that the downloaded file will not contain a virus.
The company announced that it will soon begin testing a new feature that allows you to update the application through Google Play without having to log in to your account. However, so far we are talking only about pre-installed programs.
"In the coming months, Google Play will begin testing a new feature that will automatically allow the store to update pre-loaded apps for users who are not signed in to their Google account. They will be able to disable this feature at any time if they wish," the Corporation said.
The new option will work on devices with Android Lollipop (API 21) or a newer version of the operating system. Developers need to make sure that new builds of their apps can function properly without signing in to their Google account.
