Back in December 2015, we had shared our initial plans to offer a unique program to software
development agencies working on mobile apps.
The Agency Program is an effort by Google’s Developer Relations team to work closely with
development agencies around the world and help them build high quality user
experiences. It includes providing agencies with personalized training through
local events and hangouts, dedicated content, priority support from product and
developer relations teams, and early access to upcoming developer products.
Over the past few months, the program drew a lot of interest from hundreds of
Agencies and we have since successfully launched this program in a number of
countries including India, UK, Russia, Indonesia, USA and Canada.
Having worked with various agencies for several months, the Agency Program has
now launched certification for those partners that have undergone the required
training and have demonstrated excellence in building Android applications
using our platforms. The Agency Program hopes that doing so would make it
easier for clients who’re looking to hire an agency to make an informed
decision while also pushing the entire development agency ecosystem to improve.
The list of our first set of certified agencies Agencies is available here.
We do plan to review and add more agencies to this list over the year and also
expand the program to other countries.
