Manufacturers are not the only ones who are guilty of installing bloatware on their devices, in the past all Android devices have had to come with certain Google apps.
Now it would appear that Google has decided to reduced the bloatware from Google apps on new Android devices.
Previously when smartphone manufacturers wanted to release and Android device they all had to ship with the same apps from Google, these included Google+, Google Maps, Newsstand, Play Music and more.
From now on, Android smartphone makers will no longer have to install certain Google apps on their devices, this will include apps like Google+, Google Play Book, Newsstand and Google Play Games.
These apps will still be available for users of new devices, but rather than coming pre-installed on your device they will need to be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
