The things that you’re talking about, involving an app updating
itself, does that currently get past Apple review? That would be an
argument to use with Google, in that Apple have usually been tougher
about this.

Also, does Google’s policy suggest that you can’t even update an image
in the app?

I think the web-page which Jacque linked to is much too vague - it
doesn't define any of the terms it uses, and contradicts itself as mentioned
in my previous post.

One thing to find out is what the actual text of the agreement you have
to click through to sign says - I'd imagine that's where the *actual* T&Cs

As written, a conservative interpretation of that text would suggest no, you cannot update an existing image in an app - as that is technically modifying yourself.

Similarly, it says that you can't 'modify, replace or update' other than via the Google Play Store - isn't downloding content modifying the app technically

Of course, I'm splitting hairs here slightly - the intent of the policy is
crystal clear here, they are trying to ensure that apps cannot leverage
vulnerabilities which were not known at the time the app was submitted to the
app store.

However, the text on that page is too ill-defined to be *any*
sort of binding agreement - so I hope there's a stricter version.
