Stop allowing ads to automatically launch Google Play

The Angry Birds advertisement and at least one other game (that I don't remember the name of) are automatically launching the Google Play app when the ads finish. Please do not allow this. It's really annoying. Angry Birds plays a lot lately and it should not be allowed to do that.

    Angry Birds 2 also launches Apple Play Store automatically as well.

    Let's just keep bumping this to the top until NG acknowledges it.

    Yep happens to me and my lady as well, we both hate this. It's never done this crap until like two weeks ago.

    @Kaz is this something that is "working as intended" and if so please reconsider.

    Thank you.,

    This really needs to stop.

    I find it disrespectful to be honest.

    It's also kinda stoopid.

    I mean, what do the companies who provide these kinds of ads think will happen?

    "Oh, I got taken to the Playstore, now I have to install this app because I am already here even though I have no interest in that kind of game."


    "Oh, I'm in the Playstore, ooopsie, I pressed install by accident, ooops, I confirmend, ooops, now I need to play this game because I already installed it and gave it all those permissions."

    Can you guys please make this stop? @Kaz

    It's not one ad. It's several.

    I disabled my play store app just to see if it would stop and instead it opened my browser and still took me to the online play store.

    I think the Marijuana investment ad is the only one still doing this. I hope NG stops it soon.

    Super annoying. This is a new development that only just began a few weeks ago for me. Please make it stop.

    What bugs me about it is if the ad can skew your Google Play stats and make Google think you like that type of app. Not sure that'll happen, but if so: lame.

    I get the same thing with my Samsung Chromebook using Android apps. Annoying, yes

    I've just started leaving 1 star reviews and calling out NG and the advertiser as using shit practices to advertise their game. Either NG will stop allowing it or the advertisers will stop running ads that do it.

    Agree 100%... extremely annoying and bloody cheeky.

    Yup, seems to be getting more common if anything.

    @Kaz any update on this issue. Seems to be happening more often lately. Started with 1 or 2 ads but lately it seems more of them are doing it. Is this a NG thing to generate more revenue or the ad companies? Either way make it stop please!!

    If I get any more ads about that Klondike game that take me to the Google play store, I will not be responsible for my actions... it's getting worse and worse 😠
  • JadenJaden Member Posts: 3,067
    Maybe we need to download the game and give it a bad rating? I mean... it would count for their times downloaded... but I'm getting more than just a little annoyed by that.

    Super frustrating. To be sucked to Google play all the time, want to bump this back up there

    Not sure how many of you play other games but to me it’s not a NG issue but a ad provider issue across all games that offer in game ads, all my other games with ads have this issue (Angry Birds Evolution, Idle Heroes, etc.)

    I personally don’t mind it.
