Alongside this, Google is also suggesting a machine learning-based means to separate players who are likely to buy IAPs and those who are not. With that information, the developer can show ads to the latter group while leaving the former alone (in order to keep from p*** them off)
One more step down the ladder of the user being a product, and the experience being designed to extract the most money out of the product. The game player is being treated as cattle bring milked.
