Due to Google’s changed policy regarding accessibility features, a large number of applications might be suspended from app store unless they remove accessibility features of applications or explain to users how applications are using the accessibility features to help them.
The latest news comes as Google sent out an e-mail to developers as they will now have 30 days to take necessary actions. If developers are using the accessibility features, then they can remove their application from the Play Store or remove the features that use accessibility services. On the other hand, in order to prevent removal of applications from Play Store, they will need to explain to users how their usage of accessibility features in the application is helping users with disabilities.
Following the news, a large number of developers have pointed out that although they can comply with the latest requests, the time limitation is the key issue with the procedures. While developers can recreate several features of their applications, the 30 day timeframe means majority of the developers will struggle to meet Google’s requirement in such a small period of time.
