> 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.
> What’s changing
> We’re 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 you’re 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 app’s 
> manifest to ensure that Google Play only distributes your app to devices with 
> GPS sensors.
> You can read more about this change in the Android Developers Help Center.
> Regards,
> The Google Play Team
