Google is no longer permitting anonymous reviews of applications and other content in the Google Play Store.

Google has recently made a similar change with reviews of YouTube videos. Google hopes the move will make Play Store reviews more useful to those weighing whether or not to make purchases. It also demonstrates that Google is not giving up on its social network, which has spread its tendrils across Google services. Google+ and Google Play are included on most new Android devices.
