According to the announcement made by search engine giant Google, it is bringing new guidelines for the Android apps present on its Play Store. These new policies are focused on taking down any misleading information which is imparted through an app listing to the Play Store users.
These policy changes aim on the information linked with an app, which includes the app title, its icon along with the name of the developer. As per the guidelines, these aspects are being considered as the “most important discovery elements” for apps on Play Store.

The Alphabet-owned company has clarified that it will not allow certain indications of rankings and promotions on the names of the app going forward, including the app titles. It also includes the common practice of identifying an app as “#1 on Play Store” or “top app” or even promotional indicators like “free” or “sale.”
Along with all this, Play Store apps will be refrained from having misleading elements in the title, like apps displaying “download now” in the title.
