Google has updated its Play Developer Policy Center to make things a bit more transparent for developers. Along with a Material Design-inspired refresh, Google is making it easier for developers to find relevant policies and more. Based on feedback from the community, Google was able to identify pain points for developers, and make some changes that make things easier on them. The company outlines the key changes as:

  • Thematic organization of policies, so it is easier for developers to find relevant policies and understand the broad principles behind them
  • Visual examples and detailed guidelines for the most common violations based on developer feedback
  • Expanded information on our policy enforcement to help resolve violations
  • A visual refresh embracing Material Design to help developers more intuitively find the information they are looking for on mobile or desktop
