Google is tightening both its policies and practices regarding Android apps with subscriptions, including those with free trails or introductory offers. Under updated Play Store policies, Google will now require apps to make clearer disclosures up front about how a specific subscription works. Google will also pro-actively send timely emails to users to ensure they aren't billed for a subscription they may be unaware of, or have forgotten about. Google will now email users before a free trial or intro price ends, and also when a renewal is coming up for a 3-month, 6-month, or annual subscription plan. Google is also adding a specific notification to let users know that un-installing an app does not automatically cancel the associated subscription.
