Google Play Store to enter China sometime in early 2016

The #Google #PlayStore is Android’s default app hub and is available all over the world, except in #China. The Play Store has been absent in the region since 2010 over stringent censorship laws imposed by the local government.

However, a new report mentions that Google might be looking to make a comeback by early 2016 so as to connect its app hub with another billion users, which could be quite big for the company keeping the big picture in mind. However, there might be several caveats at play here, which might not exactly be good news for the local users.

The government will apparently monitor the apps that are submitted on the Play Store and also store the data from them locally. This would leave out some major applications from the app hub. In any case, this is a start from Google and it’s good to see that the company is willing to make the necessary adjustments to the Play Store’s policies in order to accommodate the Chinese audience, who account for a large chunk of the global smartphone population.
