Google Rolls Out Automated Translation Of User Reviews In The Play Store Developer Console

Google Rolls Out Automated Translation Of User Reviews In The Play Store Developer Console

Recently, Google quietly began to test auto translation for app reviews in the developer console. Today, the company publicly announced that same feature and began rolling it out to all devs. Now, when they log in to their control panel, they can see the reviews in their preferred language, along with the original text. Neat.

Of course, this still isn't a replacement for  native fluency, but it should aid developers in troubleshooting problems that users on the other side of the language barrier discover.

Google Play Has A Brand-New Developer Console: Completely Overhauled Interface, New Statistics, And More

If you're a developer publishing apps on Google Play, the developer console is probably something you're checking every day compulsively. And Google understands that just because you're a developer, you don't need to look at something ugly and boring to track your apps' download and ratings stats, or manage their publication status. Back at I/O in June, Google showed off a bunch of new console features that were "coming soon."

The New Developer Console Has Started To Go Live For Those Who Signed Up For The Preview

Back in late June, Google teased a new, cleaner developer console. A couple weeks after that, the beta signup went live, allowing devs to get in line for an early look at the next-gen console. Now, for those who signed up for said beta, the updated console is beginning to show up.

Android Market Introducing Buyer's Currency

Android Market Introducing Buyer's Currency

One of the (numerous) problems with the Android Market has been its billing system - up to now, buyers were charged in the seller's currency. While most credit card companies were smart enough to convert the bill to the buyer's coinage, others flat out cancelled the payment. No longer - Google just announced Buyer's Currency, which gives developers the ability to set their apps' prices in each of the currencies available in the Market.

Google Loosens Android Market Limitations: App Descriptions Are Now ~1100% Larger (4000 Chars), Recent Changes ~50% Larger (500 Chars)

Google has been making multiple changes to the Android Market recently, with the introduction of 6 additional screenshots, new promo graphics, YouTube video links, recent changes, and a whole new and refreshed Market app. It looks like they're not planning on stopping, as yet another, more subtle, update just hit the Android Market publishing interface, also known as the Developer Console.

The new change expands the previously measly 325 character Description and Recent Changes fields to a whopping 4,000 characters for the Description and 500 characters for the Recent Changes.

Major 6-Hour Google Market Maintenance Coming This Thursday. What Could It Be For?

Major 6-Hour Google Market Maintenance Coming This Thursday. What Could It Be For?

As a registered Android developer, today I, along with thousands of other devs, got the following email from the Android Market Support team. The email informed me that the developer console, which is the interface used for publishing new apps, will be unavailable this Thursday, November 18th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST. The customer-facing Market itself will continue working just fine (or so I hope at least), but no new applications or app updates will be allowed.
