chromecast update

Google has laid down the law, it won’t tolerate Chromecast porn apps. A couple of days ago the company finally opened up Chromecast SDK to all developers, allowing them to write apps for its $35 dongle. Initially access to the SDK was only given to select partnets like Netflix and Hulu. The dongle instantly became popular after it was released late last year, and we’re bound to see the an influx of new apps, but nothing PG18 it seems.

Basically developers writing apps for Chromecast have to adhere to Google Play Store’s policy on what’s allowed and what’s not allowed, else their apps won’t be listed. There is a laundry list of what Google doesn’t want on its app store, which includes sexually explicit material, graphic sex acts, nudity, depictions of violence and illegal activities, hate speech, gambling and more. If a developer doesn’t adhere to these rules and submits such an app anyway, Google reserve the right to cut said developer off and quite obviously stop the app from being listed on the Play Store. Google has been fairly strict with developers on this, even though rules required for getting an app on the Play Store are more relaxed than that of the App Store.
