Google gives developers the ability to respond directly to reviews on Google Play Store

Developers for Google's Android operating system have been given a new feature to connect with users. Google has added the ability for developers to respond directly to users' reviews on the Google Play Store. This has come as a result of Google Play Store reviews being tied to the Google+ social network.


It allows users and developers to become more connected. It also allows developers to ask for more information, respond to negative reviews, or help troubleshoot an issue. When a developer posts a response, an e-mail is dispatched to the reviewer letting them know that the developer has responded to his or her review.

We believe that this new system will lead to better user engagement and better apps on the Google Play Store.
