It's happening at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View on November 7-8.

At the event, developers will get to know Android and the engineers who build it through a keynote, fireside chats, and office hours.

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

For a while now, App Annie has been offering its metrics to interested parties so developers can better understand their place in the app economy. Careful examination and integration of data like this, paired with the knowledge of a target audience, can influence where a developer's time can be best spent. And according to App Annie's latest report, Play Store downloads are up significantly, with a 20% rise year-over-year, and 160% higher than Apple's Play Store.

Some Android developers see huge drops in app installs after Google ‘enhances’ Play Store algorithms

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Last August, Google announced an enhancement to its Play Store search and discovery algorithms, all in the pursuit of a better consumer experience. This was a natural next step after the company said it began tuning its algorithms "to optimize for user engagement, not just downloads" at its Developer Day at the Game Developers Conference in February 2017. In part, these moves appeared to be shots across the bow aimed at getting developers in line.

Developers in Cambodia, Kenya, Uzbekistan, and Zambia can now distribute paid apps on Google Play

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

There are many countries around the world where you can register for a Google Play developer account but not a merchant account, meaning you can create as many apps as you want and distribute them, as long as you want them to be free. Four of these countries are getting proper merchant account registration support: Cambodia, Kenya, Uzbekistan, and Zambia. 

If you live in any of these four locales, you probably very rarely see your country's name mentioned on Android Police, so this is our opportunity to say "Hello!" The news should also be very welcome for you, whether you're a developer wanting to distribute paid apps/games or a user looking for more high-quality relevant content.

How Android App Bundles and Dynamic Delivery will change the way your phone gets its software

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Installing an app from the Play Store is an almost magically streamlined experience: You find the app you want, tap “Install,” and sit back while Google takes care of the rest. But behind the scenes there's some clever business going on to make sure that your phone gets the particular version of an app that's best suited for it. That process is now getting even more complicated as Google introduces something called the Android App Bundle and a process known as Dynamic Delivery.

The latest announcements coming out of I/O will help developers achieve more with Actions on Google.

If you're a developer working on an Actions on Google service or you're a maker of a smart home device or connected gadget and would like to try out your new Assistant action in different scenarios, you're a little limited for options. You likely will have to test it internally among your team, if you have one, but beyond that, you can't account for every situation and bug and will have to deploy at some point and hope things don't go wrong when many people start using it.
