Google convenes App Excellence Summit in Bengaluru

Google India, in its first App Excellence Summit in Bengaluru, has brought together over 700 Indian app and games developers, and tips and tools to help them create the best- quality Android apps that are locally relevant.


In addition to this, at the summit, Google has also announced its “Made-in-India” initiative, where now Indian developers can apply for a chance to have apps that are specifically optimized for the Indian market showcased on the Google Play store in India in a special section.


Addressing the summit, Purnima Kochikar, Director, Business Development, Games & Applications, Google Play, said, “At Google Play, we are committed to helping Indian developers of all sizes seize this opportunity and build successful, locally relevant businesses. A lot of what we do at Google Play is support developers’ imaginations and make Android consumers aware of the amazing new experiences our developers are creating.”


According to the company, the summit showcased Google Play success stories from local developers – many developers including Healthifyme, UrbanClap, RailYatri, and Dailyhunt are already building popular, locally relevant solutions through the resources, tools and support on Google Play. Attendees also got a chance to attend skill-building consultation sessions with Googlers, and visit demo booths to learn more about the latest features and products that Google has to offer to the developer community.


Prior to this announcement, in 2016 Google has also announced Build for Billions guidelines to help developers overcome challenges such as varying network connectivity, device specifications and high data costs.
