Google’s gambling and games policies are constantly changing and evolving. Over the past few years, Google has been making changes to its policies in order to better protect users from the potential risks associated with gambling and games. As a way to ensure that its users are kept safe and informed, Google recently announced several new updates to its gambling and games policies.
• Google has added new policies that restrict the sale of games with simulated gambling elements, such as slot machines, roulette, and bingo, to users under the age of 18.
• Google will also require developers to include warnings in their apps about simulated gambling and to provide further information about responsible gambling practices.
• Google is also introducing a new “Gambling and Games Ads” category in its AdMob and Google Ads policies. This will allow app developers to run ads related to gambling and games without violating Google’s policies.
Why the Change?
Google wants to ensure that its users are kept safe and informed when it comes to gambling, gaming and other activities that may come with a higher risk. These updates to its policies are designed to protect users from any potential harm that could come from engaging in simulated gambling and other gaming activities.
What Does This Mean for App Developers?
For app developers, this means that they must abide by Google’s new policies in order to be allowed to run ads related to gambling and games. Developers must ensure that their apps include appropriate warnings about simulated gambling and provide further information about responsible gambling practices. Additionally, developers must also make sure that their apps are not targeting users under the age of 18.
Google’s new policies are an important step towards ensuring that its users are kept safe when it comes to gambling and gaming activities. App developers must abide by these policies in order to continue to run ads related to gambling and games without violating Google’s policies. By staying up to date with Google’s policies, developers can ensure that their apps are safe and secure for all users.
