In 2016, Google launched the Developer Agency Program in a move to help developers create high-end quality apps. The idea behind the program is to recognize agencies that “have undergone the required training and have demonstrated excellence in building Android applications.” Google will provide these agencies with personalized training, dedicated content, priority support and access to the company’s developer relations teams. Certified Agencies will also get early access to upcoming developer products and help with UX reviews.
