Google gradually tightened its policy for applications in Google Play Store over the years, but now the company believes it can do more to protect consumers. One way to do this is to reduce the amount of malware and “bad” applications. That’s why Google started to review applications before they become available for download.

The new policy, which is similar to the approach of Apple’s App Store, is in force for several months. This is done through a mix of algorithms and human intervention that relies rogue applications.

But this is not all that makes Google. The company launched a new rating system that will indicate which applications and games are appropriate for certain age groups. Has made partnerships with a number of independent companies, including the ESRB, PEGI, USK, ClassInd and The Australian Classification Board. These are the same groups that classify video games like GTA V, before being marketed.

The idea is to help developers to better direct products to consumers and to educate parents about the applications and games you want to download. Ratings will cover the usual topics: sexual content, violence, drugs, alcohol and gambling.

According to Google, if users are in countries where an application is not supported, it will be “based on age and generic rating”, which was selected after the developers have completed their questionnaire rating the content. If developers do not meet the requirements, downloading can be blocked in certain regions.

This is a serious step for Android, because developers will no longer be able to upload whatever they want. Play Store is currently business for $7 billion and Google needs better protection of consumers.
