Android developers will have a new option for their applications and games starting next year that will add an official ‘Ads’ tag to their products on Google Play. This was originally announced back during Google I/O where games and apps in the Designed for Families program have had an “Ad-Supported” tag in their listings. Now Google is ready to expand this to all Google Play games and applications.

Well that deal is back for those of you who missed it last time.

Google increases the max pricing limit for apps and games on Google Play

Up until today anyone who publishes an Android game or application onto Google Play had a limit as to how high of a price they could charge. If you’ve been using Android since it was released, you may remember a long time ago a few applications popping up that were ridiculously priced, ranging from $99-$200. We’re not sure what happened to those but we do know the average pricing of apps and games on Google Play is between $0-$5, with a decent amount being $5+ but rarely over $10. Square Enix, of course, is one of those exceptions to the rule, with games regularly priced at $10-$15.
