Beginning from today, Android users would need a Google+ profile to post app reviews in the Play Store. All the previous user reviews from Android users are now shown as from ‘A Google User’.
From now on, all reviews in the Play Store will include the reviewer’s Google+ Profile name along with his G+ profile picture. As of now, new reviews from users who have connected their account to Google+ are still being shown as ‘A Google user’, but this problem should be rectified soon from Google.
This move from Google will definitely help in reducing the amount of poor app reviews in the Play Store, along with Spam comments. It will also allow developers to actually reach out to people who have posted reviews.
