Sistem peringkat usia global mengenai Play Store

The Play Store will adopt a standard for rating games and apps that are available in the store.

The new guidelines are in line with the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board), the American agency responsible for regulating content marketed in video games traditional.

The company is targeting a new standard for mobile platforms, which may vary according to the region in which each service operates.

The North American company is associated with IARC (International Age Rating Coalition), a company that adapts the classification to the Brazilian market.

With the new standard, the developer will be responsible for indicating the rating indicated for their application or game.

The developer can apply a “Free” indication or restrict to people over 16 years old.

Content that does not receive any rating may be suspended in certain countries.

The new measure can help filter applications and games consumed by children, as well as bringing developers closer to the audience that is really interested in their content.
