Why this briefing is important
Over the past few months, Google has made significant changes to its Play Store policies that could change the dynamics of one of the most important digital gateways for developers and businesses around the world: app stores. But this did not happen in a vacuum. Google Play and the Apple App Store have come under intense scrutiny and pressure from dozens of regulators around the world. What concessions have been made and why and what else is in store for the future are questions that impact any business that has a smartphone presence.
