At present, OEMs are bound with Android agreements that allow them to ship Android phones with Play Store or apps like Gmail- only when they install other apps from Google.
This is the reason why your brand-new Android phone comes with Android bloatware like Maps, Gmail, Play Music, Play Books, Google Newsstand, Google+, Hangout and more. While some of these are of great use, others are nothing but useless junk eating the useful device memory.
As a result of the certain changes in Android usage policy, phone manufacturers can use Android with a smaller number of apps. Now, Google’s homegrown applications like Google Play, Music, Movies, Newsstand and Google+ could be left out. These apps have joined the likes of Google Earth and Google Keep as these apps aren’t a part of Google’s Android bloatware package.
This Android bloatware change will soon take effect in the upcoming weeks and the new Android phones will have more space for the apps that you want and love. However, this doesn’t end your problems as phone manufacturers and mobile carriers are themselves obsessed with loading Android bloatware on your Android. But yeah, it’s a welcome step by Google and an encouraging sign.
