Target API Policy warnings for private/managed apps

Level 1.6: Donut

Hey all,


Just a note to any developers/admins that are distributing private apps via the Play Store. It has been seen that some of the private apps are getting a policy warning notification to do with the target API upcoming deadlines in August. This policy doesn't actually apply to Private Apps ( and so the notification is being shown in error. The Google Play team have been made aware of this and hopefully will resolve this soon.


This particular policy wouldn't result in any enforcement action (such as app suspensions etc) from Play anyway so nothing to worry about and can be ignored for Private apps.
