Google updates Glass policies to ban adult content

Google has recently updated the policies for its developer programme for Google Glass apps known as Glassware that bans any sexually explicit material.
The section of the content policies now states that:
“We don’t allow Glassware content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts, or sexually explicit material. Google has a zero-tolerance policy against child pornography. If we become aware of content with child pornography, we will report it to the appropriate authorities and delete the Google Accounts of those involved with the distribution.”
The update comes just in time for the release of an app called  “œT***s and Glass“ by MiKandi, that allows users wearing Glass to browse adult content and vote on it.
Add to that that the app encourages users to use the Glass camera to take pictures and video footage – the nature of which is quite obvious – and upload them to the app, and Google most certainly had a reason to act and fast. According to ABC News,  more than 10,000 people had managed to visit the site but only 17 Glass owners installed it.
Ultimately, though unintentionally no doubt, Google has made available a new way of viewing this kind of content (with camera and screen placed right above the eye) and now it’s trying to keep it out for good but can it?
While Google can prevent pornographic content from appearing in the Google Play store and the development of apps for Glass, it has no control over its users who choose to take advantage of the device and capture content of an inappropriate nature, in a personal capacity.
