The violation, consistent with Google, mentioned the corporate’s coverage towards sexually particular subject matter, that is indisputably one thing that a podcast app may well be liable to. We’re now not positive of the whole main points in regards to the actual cases, however considered one of issues more than likely came about right here:

  1. Podcast Addict’s recommendation engine inadvertently pulled a podcast with sexually particular descriptions or photographs.
  2. Someone went looking for a podcast, got here up at the mistaken record and stated the app.

Podcast Addict turns out to contend that they don’t do anything else of their app that are meant to pull any particular content material by itself. If real, they have got an overly legitimate argument: internet browsers, information apps or even social networking apps can be utilized to view sexually particular content material, so why might it be any other for one thing like a podcast app?

That’d be like banning the Google Chrome app because it can be utilized to seek for porn. Sounds lovely foolish while you placed it that method, doesn’t it? Let’s wish Google doesn’t take lengthy to lend a hand get this looked after out.
