Google Updates Policy On Misleading Apps on Play Store

Google will restrict developers from potentially misleading app descriptions on the Play Store. This new policy will force developers to provide Play Store users with accurate info about their apps. This can be seen from the title, number of characters or icons presented by the developer.

This is important for users who are looking for an app for the first time on the Play Store. Because generally they don’t know, and they are interested in titles, icons. So Google gave developers time to fix this problem before enacting the policy change.
