recently there is rumour or fact about sideloading
apps in android 14. google is making mandatory
of minimum api or os version for all apps on
google play store [ gps ] and perhaps it will give
toast message [ warning ] initially and in
future it might altogether deny installation. perhaps, android is taking
route of apple (my assumption: we cannot install
from third party sources).
i am not expert or have sufficient knowledge on
this issue. i am more worried about google
restrictions. my favourite 2 apps are struck:
webapps [ devs simply stated its not worth to
switch language ] and termux [ restrictions on
if i am correct, android now permits other than
gps for installation of apps.
now my concerns:
- how does this effect apps installed by fdroid?
- does google will deny installation if minimum
api or os version is not met?
- it will enforce restrictions similar to gps?
