We earlier reported Google’s inclusion of India in the list of countries where Android app developers can sell paid apps, but Google has now removed India from the list (link to support page, link to cached page).
So for India based Android app developers, things are back to what it was earlier – i.e. you cannot sell paid apps in the Play store (some workaround here).
We have asked Google to update us on the final status (or was it some drunken employees updating the support page?). For sure, Google needs to revisit this strategy. If not, Microsoft is going to snatch away these Android app developers with a better integrated strategy (it’s already happening).
- hat tip.
