If teachers are reviewing your app for Google Play, good news: You’ve already done a lot of work to be sure your app is appropriate for children under 13 by meeting our Google Play Families Policy requirements. 

With teacher reviews, we build on those requirements to evaluate whether your app meets our content appropriateness standards for your target age group: 5 & under, 6-8, and/or 9-12. If your app has more than one target age group, all of your app’s content must meet our standards for children in the youngest target age group you declared.  These standards aim to help parents make more informed decisions about the kind of content they choose for their child.

What you’ll learn

  • How your target age group determines the content that can appear in your app
  • What our content appropriateness standards allow for children 5 & under, 6-8, and 9-12
  • Types of content to avoid for all children under 13
  • Why apps sometimes need content appropriateness settings to restrict content
