Google, along with Android 12, will make it easier for users to download apps from third-party app markets. Google has recently shared with us the innovations that come with Android 12 at the I / O event. Android 12, which offers us innovations in design, camera, privacy and many other areas, has an embedded controller that will work with Android TVs, technology that will help unlock the car, and the convenience that it will offer to the Android family in general, we were delighted.
About 1 year ago, we learned that along with Android 12, Google will allow you to download from third-party app stores. With the news emerging today, we have seen that this is not far away.
Google to allow apps to be downloaded from third-party grocery stores
Downloads from third-party markets will be supported with Android 12. According to the information, Google, of course, will not offer an uncontrolled system. Programs that compromise the user’s privacy or data will continue to be blocked. It has been confirmed in an official blog post that the company will make it easier to use third-party grocery stores along with Android 12. Although it is not yet specified how the change is expected, XDA revealed the changes made by tampering with the developer files.
Normally, to download applications from third-party application markets, you must activate the install applications from external sources option. In addition, since you have downloaded the app from a source other than the Google Play Store, you need to manually enter the app market and update it if you want to update it.
But thanks to the innovation that will come with Android 12, you won’t have to deal with them. According to the information transmitted, if the application itself/update meets certain conditions, you will not need to take separate actions and the application will update itself.
As for what these conditions are, there are a total of 4 conditions that an application that will be installed or updated must meet:
- New package must accept old one
- The installed application must target at least 29 API levels (this means at least Android 10)
- The installer must either update itself or update an application it has already installed
- The installer must specify permission indicating that the user does not need to do anything for updates
- On top of the many innovations brought by Android 12, we found that this news also delighted users, especially those who use a market app outside the Google Play Store. Let’s see what else Google will offer us in the future.
