hi developers
3 days ago i got app reject and email say
Publishing status: Rejected
After review, your app has been rejected and wasn't published due to a policy violation. If you submitted an update, the previous version of your app is still available on Google Play.
Reasons of violation
Issue: Violation of Device and Network Abuse policy
We don’t allow apps that interfere with, disrupt, damage, or access in an unauthorized manner the user’s device, other devices or computers, servers, networks, application programming interfaces (APIs), or services, including but not limited to other apps on the device, any Google service, or an authorized carrier’s network.

Your app shouldn’t access or use the service or API in a manner that violates its terms of service. For example, your app shouldn't download, monetize, or access YouTube videos in a way that violates the YouTube Terms of Service.
from the beginning i couldn't understand the issue unless email support and the say that
your app displays its own ads while Youtube content (video) is playing.
the fault is from the website that i use its rss but it happen in app view so Open in Default Browser: button must be working with http and https to avoid this issue
