Google has created a new ‘Build high quality apps’ section on its Android Developers website to help Android developers to make sure ‘’their apps not only work but work well’’.
”This section will help you stay up-to-date with the latest minimum requirements through the core quality checklists, and provides in-depth guides in selected technology areas to help you go beyond the minimum,” says the company on the new webpage.
The section includes an updated ‘core app quality checklist’ for 5 main areas of quality including Visual Experience, Functionality, Performance & Stability, Privacy & Security and Google Play.
Check out the video below for a detailed explanation of each area.
The tech giant also encourages developers to build apps for different platforms which include tablets and foldable devices, Wear OS by Google, Android TV and Android Auto.
Lastly, there are four more sections on the web page which are UI, Device capability, Storage and Battery life where Android developers can find further information for building apps that use device memory and power efficiently.
As Hoi Lam says in the video, Google is going to update the app quality section quarterly and also planning to update the checklists for other form factors including tablets and Wear OS.
