Google makes age rating required for Android Apps




Google makes it mandatory for developers to hang an age rating to their apps. As of May should be provided with all the apps and updates a rating before they come in the Play Store. In addition, Google checks all apps now or they are contrary to the terms.

The age rating does Google determine on the basis of a questionnaire to fill developers through the Developer Console to complete a questionnaire on the basis of which apps get an age classification. The classification expires region-specific, for example, Europe is governed by the PEGI rating.

In the coming weeks, users worldwide have dished the age indication for apps. Apps whose developers did not complete the questionnaire given a designation ‘unrated’, meaning that they are going to be blocked in certain regions or not available for certain users. As of May is that developers with every new app and updates apps questionnaire for the classification must fill.

Google also announced a few months ago to have started reviewing new apps by teams of experts. Which will see the apps manually or in any way whatsoever the terms of the Play Store violate. Google claims there to strive apps nevertheless fall within hours of submission in the Play Store rather that it takes days or weeks.

After submitting developers would gain more insight into the status of their apps, why they may be refused and how they can fix problems. Google seems to follow the steps Apple, which from the beginning of the App Store in 2008, has a strict regime in publishing apps.
