    An air quality monitoring app has been told by Chinese authorities to stop displaying pollution levels that exceed an official cutoff point.

    An environmental protection bureau ordered China's Air Matters to cap its app's maximum air quality index (AQI) reading at 500, according to a report by media outlet Sixth Tone.

    The AQI, which is used by China to measure air pollution, is officially limited at 500.
