Google confirms it's ending support for the old Android TV remote app as it disappears from the Play Store

Google confirms it's ending support for the old Android TV remote app as it disappears from the Play Store

Google has dropped visibility for the "old" Android TV remote app from the Play Store, following the rollout of the new Google TV app-based solution, which landed last week. For many, the Android TV Remote Control app listing no longer appears on either the Play Store's desktop site or when navigating to the listing via an external link in the Play Store app on mobile. With Google recently rolling out a method that replaces the old app, we have to assume the removal was intentional, and Google confirms to us that it's ending support for the older app.

India's Google antitrust complaint is a familiar refrain

India's Google antitrust complaint is a familiar refrain

Google's international antitrust woes continue. This time it's a federal regulatory agency in India giving the company some expensive trouble: the Competition Commission of India found that Google is engaging in "anti-competitive, unfair, and restrictive trade practices" in the mobile phone market and related areas. The report concludes that Google violated five different sections of India's Competition Act of 2002.

Russia bullies Google and Apple into taking down Navalny election app

Apps can be incredibly powerful tools for people playing politics, and whether you're speaking to your established base or just trying to mobilize voters, there's arguably no better, modern way to keep in touch with the electorate. Over in Russia there's one hell of a contentious election taking place this weekend, and supporters of opposition leader Aleksei A. Navalny have been doing their darnedest to promote the use of an app to support friendly candidates in the country's parliamentary election. To the shock of no one, those currently in power are all sorts of incensed (ie, internally terrified) that someone's daring to challenge them in this manner, and following threats from Russian authorities, both Google and Apple alike have succumbed to government pressure to remove access to the opposition app.

Google should be worried about Epic's injunction against Apple

While it's far from the victory Epic may have hoped for, the court has issued an injunction against Apple that should at least allow developers to point customers to non-Apple payment options. It's a small bit of good news for iOS developers, but it leaves us in Android land wondering: How might this affect Google's Play Store billing enforcement changes, which are set to kick in at the end of this very month?
