Questions:

What changes if you you choose a Low Maturity over Medium Maturity rating for a Google Play Android app? Will the app only be displayed to users with a certain age?

How to&Answers:

Will the app only be displayed to users with a certain age?

Not Age. Playstore app has filters; and based on those filters, apps will be visible to the users.
So if your app has a rating of Medium Maturity and I have set my Playstore app’s filter settings to Low Maturity, your app won’t be visible to me.
