For users of android some needed changes are mandatory, perhaps these 
should again be updated in LC:

Upcoming Google Play and Android deadlines
Updated Real-Money Gambling, Games, and Contests policy

On March 1, we’re expanding the number of countries where you can 
publish licensed real-money gambling apps and introducing new 
requirements for gamified loyalty programs.

Approval required for background location access

If your app uses location in the background, start the approval process 
by completing the permissions declaration from the App content page 
(Policy > App content) in Google Play Console.

New apps submitted after April 16, 2020 need approval to access 
background location. Apps published before April 16, 2020 need approval 
by March 29.

August 2021:

New apps must target at least Android 11 (API level 30). 
New apps and games must publish with the Android App Bundle. 
New apps using Play Billing must use Billing Library version 3 or newer.
