Google Play warns of applications that are blocked or crashes long before downloading them to the ‘smartphone’

MADRID, March 3 (Portaltic/EP) –

Google play includes a notification that warns of the ‘apps’ that are easily blocked or fail a lot on the ‘smartphone’, before the user installs them, a piece of information that it provides based on data from Android devices.

The tech giant has already started implement measures last November 2022 to hide the applications that had been left out of date on Google Play and notify of the existence of an update for ‘apps’ that fail. Thus, he intended protect users of programs They lack the latest privacy and security protections.

Now, as it has indicated he analyst Mishaal Rahman and some users have shared on portals such as reddit, they have begun to show notifications in different ‘apps’ from Google Play that They warn that this application “may stop working” on the device. This notice is displayed in red under the install button.

The measure was announced as a new google play feature in the month of November 2022, as explained by the company in its developer blog. The feature is called ‘Quality Bar by Phone Model’ and examines the technical quality of the ‘app’, which can vary between devices.

An app may be stable and run smoothly on one model of phone, but not work as well on another, depending on its features. As detailed by Google Play, based on this, it has introduced a new “bad behavior” threshold of the ‘apps’ that is evaluated according to the phone model.

Specifically, this threshold is established at a maximum 8 percent per phone model. Therefore, so that Google Play maintains the visibility of the ‘app’ and does not show the notice of incorrect operation to users, the failure rate and ANR (application not responding) perceived by the user, should not exceed 8 percent.

In fact, as detailed, the warning notifications in the Play Store listing to “tell users that your app may not work properly” is began to apply from November 30, 2022. However, despite including this warning message, the application can be downloaded by the user if they wish.
