Abstract

The google play developer program privacy policy center gets a redesign and its rules and regulations are updated. Google has given its Developer Program Policy Centre a new appearance and feel, with the goal of making its guidelines for application developers easier to find, read, and comprehend. The redesign includes a colourful "Material Design" makeover that organises the policies by topics like "Restricted Content" or "Privacy and Security," for example. However, it also included updated rules and regulations, as well as graphic examples and clear guidance for the most common infractions, as well as enhanced information on policy involvement to help alleviate noisy and unwanted rules. According to Google, it is less restrictive than Apple Developer when it comes to the types of applications it allows on the Google Play Store, but it has increased its oversight over time. In 2015, the business established an internal application review team, whose job entails checking apps for privacy policy violations. Apps are also scanned for viruses and other content policy violations, such as apps that contain sexual content or infringe on the copyrights of other applicants. Despite having a set of standards instructing developers about what is and is not allowed on Google Play in terms of app content, behaviour, and advertising use, many app developers continue to see their apps banned once they are published or live. The purpose of Google's Developer Program Policy Centre overhaul, according to the company, is to better how it explains its regulations to help developers avoid unintentional errors.
