Play Store shows IAPs, FIFA 15 is out, protesters use Bluetooth chat apps! - Google Play Weekly

Join us this week as we talk about the chat apps that Hong Kong's protesters are using, some huge Google Play Store changes, and the release of FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.

Welcome back to Google Play Weekly! Here are the headlines in the world of Android apps this last week:
  • Angry Birds Transformers gets a soft launch in a few select countries in preparation of its October 15th release.
  • Voxel Rush hosted an Android vs Apple showdown this last week and we really loved that idea. Naturally, Android won.
  • The civil unrest in Hong Kong is being organized using an app called FireChat and an unknown entity has been trying to spy on them.
  • Google has launched new full screen video ads feature that is meant to make video ads better. We hope that is something that is actually possible.
