Google will soon show the pricing of in-app purchases on the Play Store

Google Play Store

Google has revealed that it will take a leaf out of Apple’s books and start mentioning the prices of in-app purchases in the Play Store app listings. The iTunes App Store has had this feature for as long as we can remember, but it’s good to know that Google is looking to bring this feature to Android.

This change will come into effect starting September 30, so there’s still some time before you see the prices of in-app purchases prior to downloading an application. With this feature implemented, customers can get a brief idea of what to expect from a game or an app and decide if it’s feasible to download it.

Speaking of changes to the Play Store, Google has also made a slightly controversial decision to ask for developers’ address so that the customers can contact them. This change will be effective starting September 30 as well. It could be quite a concern for indie developers who usually don’t work from office complexes but rather from their homes. We’re hoping to get more clarity on this particular policy change from Google as it could open doors for abuse from miscreants.
