App de­vel­op­ers get Google plat­form

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

Google Inc is mak­ing its most ag­gres­sive move on the Chi­nese main­land since a high-pro­file exit from the mar­ket nearly five years ago.

The In­ter­net gi­ant said that it has started to al­low app de­vel­op­ers in China to sell their prod­ucts through Google Play, an on­line app store in­stalled on more than 1 bil­lion An­droid smart­phones world­wide.

In­dus­try sources spec­u­lated that Google is pre­par­ing for a more sig­nif­i­cant move that would let An­droid phone users in China down­load apps from the store, which can­not be done now in the world’s big­gest smart­phone mar­ket.

Google was care­ful in phras­ing its app an­nounce­ment be­cause the move could po­ten­tially make avail­able the first ma­jor Google ser­vice in China since early 2010.
