Google will soon start approving Play Store apps and content manually

Play Store rating

The Play Store is usually bombarded with counterfeit apps which are either mimicking other applications or not very good in terms of quality. A new report now suggests that the Mountain View company will look to monitor apps manually to improve the quality of content.

Google has also announced a new age-based rating system for the Play Store, which will help developers better target their applications for a specific set of audience. Here’s what Google had to say – “Today we’re introducing a new age-based rating system for apps and games on Google Play. We know that people in different countries have different ideas about what content is appropriate for kids, teens and adults, so today’s announcement will help developers better label their apps for the right audience.”

As you can see in the screenshot above, the apps can be rated depending on the region, so users won’t see the same ratings in every country. This is important for the developers as some countries have a different rating system in place.

On the whole, the Play Store is seeing some much needed improvements which could substantially improve the sort of apps that we see over the coming days.
