Hello Google Play Developer,
We're excited to announce the launch of a redesigned Google Play Developer
Policy Center, an online resource which strives to provide developers with
greater transparency and insight into our program policies.
This redesign includes a new organizational structure for the Developer
Program Policies, which are now grouped into six themes. We've also
introduced detailed guidelines and visual examples to help you better
understand the policies.
In our continuing effort to make Google Play the most trusted community for
developers and consumers, we also took this opportunity to update a few
policies in accordance with current practices. This email is to notify you
of the latest changes to our policies, a few of which are highlighted below.
