Google Play Reviews Now Powered By Google+, Way More Personal
Android developers, this one is big. Google has now integrated Google+ completely with your App reviews. Reviews on Google Play are now powered by Google+ which means that reviews are now more personal than ever. This eliminates fake reviews that quite often pop up from time to time (by competitors or random people). You will now be able to view the Google+ profile of the person who reviewed your App and make some interaction with the user, unlike Apple’s App Store.
Google has a whole new strategy in mind. This marks the evolution of the entire company. And Google is heading towards being more social. Google+ is gradually being integrated with almost every Google service with Google Play begin the most recent service to receive this integration.
Reviews will now be posted with your real Google+ name and profile picture. This could also go the other way and result in users posting less reviews and not providing rapid feedback to users. Whether this is a right direction to head in or not, only time will tell.
