Commenting on this news, Jack Cooney, the developer of Hip Hop Ninja app told, that it is a fantastic step taken by Google. It will increase the visibility of the original apps by clearing Google Play Store from junk apps. Also, the search term will be less cluttered.
Even though a ton of apps may get deleted from Google Play Store but it will make Google Play more useful to the users. You will see there are over thousands of zombie apps that do not get any update for years and most of them turn to be useless by android’s newer versions. Also, you might have found it difficult sometimes to find the exact app that you were looking for.
