Sugar Daddy apps in Google’s platform recently received the ban hammer after new policies regarding sexual content were introduced.
Google has added a few changes to its policies, particularly within the inappropriate genre and bans apps that have ‘compensated sexual relationships’ in the form of sugar dating genres.
The tech giant has released a statement regarding the matter, saying that they’re constantly working to provide a safe experience for all users. Feedback from governments, NGOs and advocacy groups have forced Google to review apps that involve sexual acts in exchange for compensation, which they say aligns with their policies.
Apple and its App Store have similar guidelines regarding sexual content, to which Google followed in line with the change.
Sugar dating platforms can still operate but not on Play Store or App Store. Users will be limited to sideloading apps on their devices or using the web version for joining or signing up.
