Tech giant Google is bringing a new app review policy to make app ratings and reviews as authentic as possible in the Play Store.

The latest change will delay reviews and ratings submitted by users about 24 hours before they are made public, assuming they come from real people, Android Central reports.

According to the report, the tech giant aims for the new policy to detect suspicious ratings and reviews on Android apps.

“To allow us to automatically detect suspicious ratings or reviews, we are introducing a delay of approximately 24 hours between the time users submit ratings or reviews and the time those submissions are published. Google was quoted as saying in a review.

“During this period, you will still be able to help your users by seeing and responding to reviews, but these will not be immediately public,” he added.

The report mentions that the new policy could help reduce the spread of fake product reviews online.

The tech giant warned against posting the same review multiple times, as well as reviews for the same content from multiple accounts, according to the report.

The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) launched an investigation into Google and Amazon last year to determine whether they “may not have done enough” to combat fake reviews on their respective platforms.
