Our platform and policies constantly evolve to improve the user experience and create a safer ecosystem. This page is updated with the latest information about these policies, including any changes you may be required to make. Thanks for keeping your apps and games up to date.
After August 2021, all new apps and games will be required to publish with the Android App Bundle format. New apps and games must use Play Asset Delivery or Play Feature Delivery to deliver assets or features that exceed a download size of 150MB. Private enterprise apps are not subject to this requirement.
We’re updating Google Play policies related to permissions, subscriptions, and other policies. Compliance deadlines start August 31. Some policies may have longer grace periods.
