In Bengaluru, at its first App Excellence Meeting, Google has declared its latest “Made for India initiative.” At the event, the company invited Indian game and app developers to share tips and tools with the other developers. This will help them make locally relevant and quality Android apps.
As a fraction of the Made for India scheme, the search major will allow developers in India to apply for a modification and have apps developed particularly for the Indian industry. The apps developed by the developers will be displayed on the Google Play store in India below a unique section. The developers can sing in on g.co/play/madeforindia to enroll for the initiative.
At the meeting, the firm also exposed that users in India install more than 1 Billion apps from the Google Play store each month and apps installed in the country has increased by 150% as compared to the last year. So, this proposal will assist the user in India to have admission to improved apps as per their requirements and needs.
Apart from this, Google also declared that Google Play will now support postpaid and prepaid carrier billings for Vodafone, Airtel, and Idea Cellular. The consumers can also receive gift cards of Google Play from more than 4,000 retail stores in the nation and can also receive recharge codes commencing from Rs 100 through e-wallets.
Earlier, Google rolled out a brand new icon for Google Play Store. When observing carefully, the new icon comprises a colorful triangle. The earlier icon had the similar triangle located inside a shopping bag.
Apart from this change in the main app icon, the company also rolled out a new icon for the notifications of the app. It is now similar to the main colorful triangle icon, but has a sign of tick mark attached with it. As the upgrade is being introduced in a staged manner, it will take some time to show up on each and every Android smartphone. Lately, the company rolled out an update on server side for its Play Store. The upgrade gives a new UI for the ‘My Apps’ section of the Google Play Store, which is intended to make management of app easier on Android smartphones.
