How would Google collect the logs

You are aware of this giant binary blob called Play Services...

and then how would they parse all of them to pass information on to app developers

They'd probably need just the app name and path in proc at most.

but doesn't really scale up to millions of phones.

Tiny compared to ad data.

They're probably already collecting it as we speak.
