Google Play Store updates app policy, bans repetitive content and cryptomining apps


Google has announced a number of changes to the kind of content that developers can make available on the Play Store, the world’s largest destination for installing apps. 

Google has made several updates to the policy framework for Google Play Store and all of these updates are related to content restrictions. For starters, Google is cracking down on apps that closely resemble other existing apps. “Multiple apps with highly similar content and user experience” are no longer allowed on the Play Store, or even “apps that are created by an automated tool, wizard service, or based on templates and submitted to Google Play by the operator of that service on behalf of other persons.” Google’s Play Store has been full of replica apps that the company has had to remove due to copyright and safety issues. 

There were multiple versions of WhatsApp found on the Play Store at one point and when Indian Yoga Guru, Baba Ramdev, launched his highly flawed Kimbho app, it was also replicated hundreds of times to mine user data. Further, apps that mine for cryptocurrency AKA cryptomining apps were also banned from the Play Store, along with those that “facilitate the sale of explosives, firearms, ammunition, or certain firearms accessories.” The Play Store will also not allow apps aimed at children with adult themes, apps that only show ads to users, and apps the spread misleading information or fool the user in any fashion.
