Background: As already mentioned, Google does this every year, and same as before, you can access all of the content that we've mentioned here via the company's "Best of 2018" section in the Google Play Store that is linked above.

"We take these allegations very seriously and our Google Play Developer policies prohibit deceptive and malicious behavior on our platform". Google noted in a statement to Buzzfeed News that it expects to take further actions against the developers.

If you were, for some reason, hoping to download CM File Manager or Kika Keyboard, I have some bad news.

Ever since Android 6.0 Marshmallow launched, Android has granted users control over app permissions, dictating what our apps can and cannot do.


News of Google taking action makes for a major turn of events, as Cheetah Mobile came out swinging in the immediate wake of the report. The developer Cheetah Mobile has defended itself by saying that it has no control over the companies that provide the advertisements included in the app, but it is still hard to believe that it did not know anything, given that it is clear how it could make a considerable profit from the situation.

Cheetah also admitted that it "proactively" removed two advertising SDKs from its apps. For the moment, at least, the app listing has been removed from the Play Store although it was included with the December security patch.

Language-learning app Drops is the best Android app of 2018, according to Google.

This was the first year Google gave users the chance to vote for their favorite game, app, and movie of the year.
