Google Play Developer Notifications
We're writing to let you know about a recent update to our Developer Policy Center. We make updates from time to time as part of a continuous effort to make Google Play a positive experience for both developers and consumers.
This email is to inform you of recent changes we’ve made to our policies:
We've clarified our Misleading Claims policy to highlight the prohibition of any disinformation or deception around medical, health-related and government services apps.
We encourage you to review these policy updates carefully in case any of your existing apps are impacted.
Hello Google Play Developer,
Please review all of your apps for 64-bit compliance and submit your updated apps by August 1, 2019. The Android developers guideprovides step-by-step instructions for assessing the use of native code and becoming 64-bit compliant, including identifying native libraries, building with 64-bit libraries, testing and publishing.
Please note that we are not making changes to our policy on 32-bit support. Google Play will continue to deliver apps with 32-bit native code to 32-bit devices. The requirement means that those apps will need to have a 64-bit version as well.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Google Play developer support.
State and local sales tax changes in Idaho, Nebraska and New York effective 6/1/2019
In compliance with state tax laws, Google will be responsible for determining, charging, and remitting state and local sales tax for Google Play Store purchases by customers in Idaho, Nebraska and New York. Google will remit and collect sales tax for paid apps and in-app purchases by customers in these states to the appropriate authority, as applicable. No action will be required on your part.
Review changes to the Developer Program Policies
Go to the Developer Policy Center to review our May 2019 policy updates and make sure your app complies.
Aside from where explicitly noted, any new apps or app updates published after this change must adhere to these policies. If you have an existing app that's not compliant, you'll need to fix and resubmit the app within 30 days.
