Google has said that in the next year's Android update, it will make it easier for the third-party apps to comply with Google Play Store guidelines.

This announcement comes after Google said that it will make it mandatory for developers to comply with the Play Store guidelines for in-app purchases.

"As an open platform, Android allows multiple app stores. In fact, most Android devices come with at least two stores right out of the box, and users can install others. For developers who choose to distribute their apps on Google Play, our policy has always required them to use Play's billing system if they offer in-app purchases of digital goods. We are always working with our partners to clarify these policies and ensure they are applied equitably and reasonably," a Google spokesperson told Bloomberg.

Google has maintained that it is fine with developers selling their app through other app stores but if they want to use Google Play Store to present their apps, they should follow the guidelines set by Google.

However, it will make complying with the guidelines easy for developers.

"In response to that feedback, we will be making changes in Android 12 (next year's Android release) to make it even easier for people to use other app stores on their devices while being careful not to compromise the safety measures Android has in place. We are designing all this now and look forward to sharing more in the future" 9to5 quoted Google as saying.
