  • Google is rolling out its impressive noise cancelation in Google Meet to Android and iOS, but unfortunately, it won’t be available to everybody — you have to be a G Suite Enterprise or G Suite Enterprise for Education customer to take advantage of the handy feature, Google says. Google rolled this out first for the web in June.
  • Google on Monday said it’s clarifying its policies for app makers on its Play Store marketplace, telling developers they have up to a year to get in compliance with its policies for in-app purchases.
  • Android 12 will make it easier to use third-party app stores, Google has announced through a blog post. The new change has come into place alongside a “clarity” being released specifically for Google Play’s payments policy. Google has apparently brought the new developments as a response to its ongoing tussle with game publisher Epic Games over the cut that it takes for purchases made through Google Play.
