Google has said that it will continue to allow Android developers in Argentina to sell apps in the Play store. An update posted on its support page says that "for the time being" Google will continue to collect payments for software in Argentina as it "explores more permanent solutions."

Last month the company said that it would pull paid software from Google Play in Argentina and force local developers to register their accounts with other countries, in a move that appeared to be connected to new regulations on currency exchanges. The changes were set to go into effect tomorrow, June 27th; Google now apologizes for the inconvenience and promises future updates on the matter.
