i got this email from google,
Hello Google Play Developer,
We're writing to let you know that the apps listed at the end of this email
may be affected by an upcoming platform change.
**Action required**: If your app requires GPS hardware to operate properly,
you will need to explicitly add the "android.hardware.location.gps"
uses-feature to your manifest.
Weâre making a change on October 15th, 2016 that will affect apps
targeting API version 21 (Android 5.0, Lollipop) or higher that use
ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION but don't explicitly have the
"android.hardware.location.gps" uses-feature. Going forward, these apps will be
available to install on devices that don't have GPS hardware. In most cases
this won't be an issue since Wi-Fi and Cell-ID based location provides high
enough fidelity for the typical operation of these apps. However, any apps that
require GPS hardware, such as GPS navigators, should explicitly add the
"android.hardware.location.gps" uses-feature to their manifest.
If your app requires GPS to function properly and you do not include
android.hardware.location.gps in your manifest declaration, your users may have
a poor app experience.
Also, if youâre using the fused location provider and wish to receive the
most accurate location samples from GPS (i.e. with PRIORITY_HIGH_ACCURACY), you
must include the "android.hardware.location.gps" feature in your appâs
manifest to ensure that Google Play only distributes your app to devices with
