Google’s Primary Apps Now Feature Privacy Labels

Taha Broach, the 8-Bit:

After an almost four-month-long wait, Google has updated the App Store pages of all of its popular apps with Apple’s Privacy Nutrition labels. This news comes as reports suggest Google might be preparing its own privacy nutrition labels for individual app pages on the Play Store.

Today, Google updated the App Store page of its last popular app — Google Photos — to reflect the app’s tracking practices to users who are about to download the app.

At the beginning of January, Google said that it would be rolling these out “this week or the next week”. It’s pretty embarrassing that it took one of the world’s most valuable companies until the second week of April to tick more-or-less every box for the personally-linked data it collects.
