Google enforcing rules on side loading play store apps

I used total commander to install insider builds. They had to remove that capability as Google sent them a notice that the terms of service don’t allow an app installed from the play store to side load apps that are also available on the play store. That meant I couldn’t easily install the latest insider build. I never allow the browser to install apps as that is pretty dangerous. If Google widely enforces this, it will make the current method for distributing insider mobile builds for Android pretty annoying for most users.

I used fdroid to install ghost commander and it can install apps, but wonder how long that will be possible.

Platform

X-plore File Manager still has the capability at the moment …
