Google gave so-called "Top Developers" the ability to reply to reviews left in the Play Store some months ago, and the company has begun opening up the feature to all. Droid-Life first spotted the change, with reports from individual developers saying that they can respond to user comments. It doesn't look like the feature has rolled out completely just yet, though. The change has been a long time coming — it’s always been frustrating for developers to not be able to respond to feedback or criticism, but now everyone has the means to do so. It should help reduce the number of unnecessary one star reviews as well as the deluge of emails that developers must receive.
