After Apple, Google has now stopped permitting developers to submit apps that mine cryptocurrency on devices. However, apps that remotely manage the mining of cryptocurrency are not facing any such restriction on the Play store. Apple earlier took a similar step last month when it introduced a new section on cryptocurrency in its guidelines on App Store saying "Apps, including any third party advertisements displayed within them, may not run unrelated background processes such as cryptocurrency mining"".
In its latest update on Play Store developer policies, Google has introduced other content restrictions. It is no longer allowing applications that "appeal to children but contain adult themes", Android Police reported on Thursday.
