Cooperation with Google or Apple can be problematic for many application producers. As exemplified by the latest information publishing Apple's relationships with many developers of smartphone applications, conflicts are standard in this area of market. It seems that Google will want to go a slightly different way and the developers of the application will receive some privileges that will allow them to share their works more freely.

Google announces that Android 12 will allow the operation of external stores with applications that will be created by other companies. Examples of such stores are Epic Store and Galaxy Apps developed by Samsung. The upcoming changes, although we have not yet learned the details, will be aimed at increasing the security of the phone, hence app stores will be probably obligated to be analyzed by Google before they are officially released to users. In addition, Google announces that from 30th of September 2021, all payments within the applications on Android system will have to go through the Google Play payment system.
