In Google controlling how Android 10 will be adopted by different smartphone manufactures, the company set new default Google apps that will ship on new phones that will run on Android 10 and Android 10(Go Edition). From forcing OEMs to hide their gesture based navigation and instead use Android 10’s, Google now wants to dictate its preloaded default apps.

New Android devices usually ship with preloaded set of apps either selected by the device manufacturer, carriers, tech companies such as Facebook, Microsoft or Google itself. In a Google Mobile Services (GMS) agreement document accessed by 9to5Google points out the requirements for Android smartphone manufaturers and also shares what default apps to include.
