Google yanks gay dating app from Indonesia online store

• https://www.channelnewsasia.com,

Officials had called for the tech giant to remove 73 LGBT-related applications, including dating services, from its Play Store and urged people to shun apps that broke with cultural norms in the world's biggest Muslim-majority nation.
Communications ministry spokesman Noor Iza confirmed on Wednesday that gay dating application Blued - which boasts more than 27 million users globally - no longer appeared in the Google Play Store available to Indonesian users.

"There was some negative content related to pornography inside the application," Iza told AFP.

"Probably one or some members of the application put the pornographic content inside."

As of Wednesday, Apple's online store still had Blued available.
