    Text of message
    Hello Google Play Developer,

    We recently announced that we’ll be deprecating the install_referrer intent broadcast mechanism. Because one or more of your apps uses this intent to track referrals, we wanted to ensure you make the switch before March 1, 2020. After this date, new versions of the Play Store app will no longer broadcast the install_referrer intent after app installs.

    Action required

    Migrate to the Play Install Referrer API to track your app installs for the following apps and/or games.

    Affected apps


    The Play Install Referrer API offers better performance, uses a secure communication channel between your app and the Play Store, and offers a more robust solution against spoof and attribution fraud.

    We know this change may require some additional work on your part and appreciate your understanding.

    Thank you for being a part of Google Play.
