Until recently, to work with the app store, it was necessary to have a Google account, authorizing through which you could use Google Play. Not having done this, it was possible to download and install applications only with the help of the installation APK files, sometimes downloading them from sites with a dubious reputation.
In a recent letter that all application developers have received, it says that Google’s policy regarding the operation of Google Play will undergo significant changes. In the future, the company wants to allow unregistered users to use the app store, although at the initial stage only the pre-installed apps will be discussed.
It is reported that the feature can be disabled by the user at any time.
