I would like to know whether or not preloaded apps are taken into account by Google Play to compute the total number of installs of an app.
I read many articles, among which this one, but I did not find yet a clear answer to this question.
Can someone provide an answer to this question? Hopefully a link to some official Google Play / Android Developer Documentation page.. ;-)
I sent a question to Google using contact form on Google Play Console, but did not receive an answer yet.
And, of course, I also read many documentation pages on Google Play Console portal.
