Despite the launch of Android 11 this month, and it still has a long way to go to reach millions of users around the world, this does not mean that Google is not working on the next version of its operating system, in fact, today announced the first big change that users and developers will find New release.

 In its blog for developers, Google talked about the current concerns to facilitate the use of installing the application on Android from third-party stores, that is, other than Google Play Store, such as Huawei App Gallery or Samsung Galaxy Store and others ...
Google says it will make it easier for everyone to use third-party app stores on Android devices as long as care is taken not to compromise the security measures that govern their operating system. The company promises to provide more details on this in the future.

This is definitely good news for many developers who disagree with Google's policy on Google Play apps. Epic Games is one of the companies that does not comply with the policy of Google and Apple, and this has led to the expulsion of Fortnite from Google Play and the App Store and a lawsuit against Apple and Google by Epic Games.

Fortunately, Fortnite can be installed from third-party stores on Android, but that's impossible on iOS, and while Apple is tougher with these types of situations, Google wants to give more freedom to users and developers to avoid more issues like the ones currently in place.

Another important point that they touched on in this announcement is that the 30% commission charged for every transaction on Android will continue to exist and will be mandatory for all those apps that want to be available on the Google Play Store, in fact, Google stressed that everyone is asking developers. Those who sell digital products in their apps use the company's payment system before September 30, 2021.

Even so, Google is also aware of the current situation, and reveals that there will be some applications that will not have to use Google's payment system, and thus will be exempt from the commission for another year, and even they will review the situation again during the next year to see if This feature had to be extended to all developers affected, such as Airbnb, who even complained that Apple had notified them of the need to. Pay a 30% commission back to the company.
