Google has closed a loophole that was allowing Facebook to update its Android application without using the Google Play store for the updates, Google has now released new terms and conditions which now stops this being done.
“An app downloaded from Google Play may not modify, replace or update its own APK binary code using any method other than Google Play’s update mechanism.”
Facebook has said that it was only pushing updates to users that allowed non Google Play Store downloads to their handsets, it looks like Facebook will not be able to do this anymore.
