Google removes “G+ profile” requirement for posting Play Store app reviews
According to a TechCrunch report, tech giant Google is rolling out a change to the Google Play Store policy which will eliminate the requirement of a Google+ account for users to post app reviews on the Play Store.
The report, based on the details shared by Google in an email, has revealed that Google Play Store users will no longer require a “G+ profile” for writing reviews about a particular app on the Play Store.
The change to the Google Play Store policy is currently being rolled out by Google across accounts. Some users have reported that they can now post app reviews on Play Store without a Google+ account; while some others are seemingly still stuck with the Google+ account requirement.
It is not clear as to how much time Google will take to remove the Google+ account requirement for writing Play Store app reviews, but it is speculated that the restriction will be lifted for all users pretty soon.
About the removal of the Google+ profile requirement for posting app reviews on Google Pay, Bradley Horowitz -- Google VP of Streams, Photos and Sharing -- said in a blog post: “People have told us that accessing all of their Google stuff with one account makes life a whole lot easier. But we’ve also heard that it doesn’t make sense for your Google+ profile to be your identity in all the other Google products you use.”
