Google makes it official: no porn apps for Chromecast

GIGAOM_FATTO_DIGITALE

It looks like that Playboy TV app we told you about a few weeks back won’t be coming to Chromecast any time soon: Along with the release of the Chromecast SDK, Google also published the Terms of Service developers have to agree to in order to make their apps Chromecast-compatible. One of the conditions: Explicit content is a no-go.

The Chromecast Terms of Service include a number of device-specific requirements, including the demand to include protections against screen burn-in and a clause that tells developers not to enable the rooting of the device.

But Google also puts some basic content policies in place — or rather, the company is reinforcing existing policies by telling developers that their Chromecast apps also have to adhere to the Google Play developer program policies, which have governed the types of content allowed in the Play Store for years. And part of that policies is a no-porn rule:

“We don’t allow content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts, or sexually explicit material.”
