Google Launches Family Friendly Store

Worried about your child getting a copy of Call Of Duty: Black Ops Zombies for their Android device? Our Advice, don’t be.
The reason we say this is because Google are launching their family friendly version of the Play Store in a few weeks. To fill the freshly available section, Google are inviting current application developers to join the program and create apps to meet Google’s idea of Child safe experiences.
Google have released a list of requirements and advert policies that you need to comply to as a developer before they will allow you to publish the app in the new store.
These rules include:
- Apps must be rated ESRB for everyone over 10 years of age
- Apps must comply with laws concerning advertising to children
- No violent content for children under 13
Sounds like Google are getting pretty serious about making the Play store and phones a safe place for children. You can see all their rules and guidelines here
The launch of the new store will go well with the new user profiles feature in Android Lollipop. You’ll be able to create a profile for your child so you can stop them seeing your information, yet allow them to have a child safe experience with Apps and adverts whilst using the device.
