The minimum price for apps and in-game purchases is now lower in 17 countries

Android developers within certain countries now have the option to set the price of their apps and in-game purchases to a lower amount than before. This new change is now available within the following countries: Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Hungary, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Phillippines, Poland, Peru, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam.

Developers can drop the pricing for their app/game as a whole, or for in-app purchases right away. To do so, you just need to log into the Developer Console and go to “Pricing & Distribution” or “In-app Products” for your apps/games. There you can select the new low price point, if that’s what you want to do of course.
