Google Play Early Access initiative now open to all

Google has opened up its fledgling Early Access initiative to all developers after its current roster of 29 titles passed the 1 million download mark. 

Google has opened up its fledgling Early Access initiative to all developers after its current roster of 29 titles passed the 1 million download mark. 

When it was first unveiled, Google said the Early Access collection would consist of a "hand-picked group of promising open betas that haven’t gone to production yet." 

The tech giant has since decided to shake things up, and is now letting devs nominate their app by filling out an online application.

The form itself only asks for a few key details, such as production launch dates and beta information, and notes that Google is keen to unearth apps and games that "test new ideas, user interaction flows, [and] business ideas."

It's unclear how many apps will be approved by Google, although a blog post states that new titles will be added weekly.
