Google nixes pornographic content on Chromecast

Google won't support porn apps on Chromecast, and any illegal pornographic content will lead to police involvement (NASDAQ:GOOG)

Google may have opened up the Chromecast SDK for developers, but don't expect to see any porn through the $35 product - banning any content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts, and sexually-explicit material.

Google also warned child porn supporters that the authorities will be notified whenever discovered. From the Google fine print:

 

"We don't allow content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts, or sexually explicit material. Google has a zero-tolerance policy against child sexual abuse imagery. If we become aware of content with child sexual abusive imagery, we will report it to the appropriate authorities and delete the Google Accounts of those involved with the distribution."

 

This isn't a big surprise, as Google decided to turn down porn-related apps from its Glass product, with the company trying to get its product supported for all audiences. Gambling apps also are banned from Chromecast, including online casinos and sports betting apps that reward gamers with cash or other currency.
