Google Play Store shows a new Notifications section for some users

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

It appears that the Play Store team is testing another new feature in the Android app, though you may like this one more than the new tab bar that's been rolling out to more and more devices. In the side menu of the Play Store, some users are seeing a new Notifications section, right below My Apps & games.

Tapping on it opens a dedicated Notifications screen, where both of our tipsters have only seen the below "You're all caught up" graphic.

Google demands Cerberus anti-theft app to be less stealthy

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

While Google provides its own tracking and anti-theft service through Android Device Manager, some users prefer third-party tools. One of these is Cerberus, a powerful and customizable anti-theft app that has been around for years. While in operation, it can completely hide any evidence that the phone is being tracked (even faking a shut-down), thus giving owners more time to get their stolen devices back.

The developer shared an email from Google on the app's Google+ account, which states that Cerberus is in violation of the Play Store's Malicious Behavior Policy.

UC Browser temporarily removed from Play Store due to setting “not in line with Google’s policy”

Thursday, November 16th, 2017

UC Browser is massively popular in India, with over 500 million installs on the Play Store. But just two days ago, the app was removed from the store. Now it appears that a setting in the browser itself, rather than rumored data theft or misleading promotions, is the reason it has been removed.

Android Police previously signed up as an affiliate of UC Union, the browser's parent company (though we are not currently working with them).

LastPass unaffected by Google’s accessibility app purge

Thursday, November 16th, 2017

Last week, Google began sending out emails to Android app developers regarding their use of Accessibility APIs. The intended purpose of that functionality is to assist disabled users, but it is often used for other functionality (to overlay content, fill in text fields, etc) by apps like LastPass. Google said that apps using this API for anything except helping disabled users would be removed from the Play Store.

LastPass recently added support for Android 8.0 Oreo's Autofill API, but that only covers 0.3% of all Android devices.

Lenovo Thinkpad 13 Chromebook, Acer Chromebook 11, and three others receive Android app support

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

It has been a slow journey, but Google has been hard at work giving more Chromebooks access to Android app support. The Play Store arrived on 17 more Chromebooks last month, and now Google has added a few more to the growing list.

First off, the Acer Chromebook 11 (C740) and Dell Chromebook 11 (7310) now have Android app support in the Chrome OS Beta channel. If you have either of those Chromebooks, and you can't wait for the feature to be finished, switching to the Beta channel is pretty easy.

Google will remove Play Store apps that use Accessibility Services for anything except helping disabled users

Sunday, November 12th, 2017

For years, Android has allowed apps to modify the behavior of other applications, using Accessibility Services. While the intended purpose is for developers to create apps for users with disabilities, the API is often used for other functionality (to overlay content, fill in text fields, etc.). LastPass, Universal Copy, Clipboard Actions, Cerberus, Tasker, and Network Monitor Mini are just a few examples of applications heavily using this API.
