In a statement, Google said it had been working with developers to clarify its play store policy, but it did not elaborate on any upcoming changes.

As an open platform, Android allow multiple app stores. Actually, most Android devices are equipped with at least two stores when they are out of the box, so users can also install other stores. To developers who choose to publish applications on Google Play, if they provide in-app purchases of digital goods, the Google policy is to always require them to use Play billing systems, and the company says it has been working with partners to clarify these policies and ensure that they are applied fairly and reasonably.

When Google's updated guidelines are implemented, major developers who currently don't meet the rules will have time to update their apps and are unlikely to face immediate removal from the play store, the report said.

Google andAppleThere is growing scrutiny over the way the play store and app store are run, respectively. Apple, in particular, has been accused by spotify and others of being anti competitive, while the company is still fighting a high-profile legal battle with Epic Games, founder of Fortress night, over in app purchases.
