Owners of HTC devices might have panicked a little when news started going out that HTC apps were disappearing from the Google Play Store. Many users have spotted this testing, which appears to be rolled out to more users than usual for an A/B test.
Google is working hard to revolutionize the way of pushing system update.
Google is now revealing another planning feature inside the Play Store. "As of May 1st, developers will no longer be able to upload icons in the Play Console which do not meet the new specifications, although existing original icons in the Google Play Store during this period can remain unchanged".
To review, all Android smartphones have generally housed the system update work in the Settings application.

While we don't know why Google plans to make changes to its software update system, the new one seems like an attractive option.
This technically means that OS updates could be released to Android devices faster than before, though it remains to be seen how Google would manage carrier and manufacturer policies for each update. "While we strive for openness wherever possible, in order to prevent bad-faith developers from gaming our systems and putting our users at risk in the process, we can't always share the reasons we've concluded that one account is related to another", the Android team wrote.
The good news is that HTC isn't planning to stop support to their apps on the Google Play Store anytime soon. According to the description of the option, this option allows users to download and then install test versions of the apps from the Play Store.
It's also worth pointing out that Apple has been allowing simultaneous app downloads from its iOS App Store for quite some time, so it's a little odd Google is only now working on following suit.
