Google Play Developer Program Policy Update
Hello Google Play Developer,
We are constantly striving to make Google Play a great community for
developers and consumers. This requires us to update our Developer Policy
Center in accordance with current practices as the ecosystem evolves. We've
made some changes to our policies, which are highlighted below.
We've added a Play Families Program Policy section to the Policy Center.
We've clarified our Privacy and Security policies to help developers better
determine when privacy disclosure is required and where such disclosure
should be available to users.
We've updated our content policies to further clarify our stance on
sexually explicit services.
We've updated our gambling ad policies to share the requirements a
developer must adhere to when displaying gambling ads in Play.
We're introducing a User Generated Content (UGC) policy that outlines
minimum safety requirements.
We've added examples to the Deceptive Behavior and Violence policies,
clarifying disallowed behavior and/or content.
Please take a look at the Google Play Developer Program Policy to see all
the changes and make sure your app complies with our updated policies.
Any new apps or app updates published after this notification will be
immediately subject to the latest version of the Program Policy. If you
find any existing apps in your catalog that don't comply, we ask that you
fix and resubmit the app, or unpublish it within 30 calendar days of
receiving this email. After this period, existing apps discovered to be in
violation may be subject to warning or removal from Google Play.
