Our Newsvoice app was banned from Google Play Store for our unbiased Covid-19 coverage, a month later Google News releases the exact same feature. I’m Malin Cumzelius, COO, AMA!
A month ago, our Newsvoice app was removed from Google Play Store, without warning, for our extensive Covid-19 coverage, which aggregated real-time statistics from very reputable sources such as ECDC. It took us almost a week to get through the opaque process of getting the app back up on the store, with the Covid-19 coverage removed. The official reason for removal was “profiting from disaster”.
Now, a month later, Google News has added the exact same features to their website. So how is it profiting from disaster when a small upcoming startup is doing it, but not when Google themselves do it?
I’m Malin Cumzelius, COO of Newsvoice. Prior to Newsvoice.com, I've spent my time building two of the most loved brands out of the Nordics - Spotify and the lifestyle brand ARKET for the H&M Group.
