Google wants to certify and label family-friendly apps even better
There are many, many apps in the Google Play Store and some of them are actually perfectly tailored for use by children. Unfortunately, this is by far not the case for all apps that actually claim this. Google has drafted its own guidelines for this and based them on the two programs "Designed for Families" and "Teacher Approved". Both should ensure compliance with various criteria and approve corresponding apps, with the latter program educators are actually called in to help.
As Google is now announcing, the guidelines of the two programs are now being brought closer together in such a way that there will soon be even more apps for families that also offer the "Teacher Approved" seal. So better content for kids - can only be endorsed. In addition, Google will change the guidelines for family-friendly advertising, so that from next year it will be mandatory for all apps that have been certified as "family-friendly". In the coming weeks, all apps targeting children will reflect their compliance with the Play Family Policy requirements with a special icon in the Data Security section.
