Web version of the Play Store gets ‘Flag as inappropriate’ option

Google Play Store

Google has allowed users to flag inappropriate content on the Play Store to make the app hub a cleaner place for all. However, this feature was only available on the Android version of the Play Store while it didn’t exist on the web version. This was slightly odd as changes like these usually take effect simultaneously. And it seems like Google has realized that with the web version of the Play Store now getting the ‘Flag as inappropriate‘ option.

Unfortunately, it’s not as straight forward as clicking the button and reporting an app. After clicking the ‘Flag as inappropriate‘ button on the Play Store, users will be navigated to Google’s support page where you will have to click on ‘Malicious or inappropriate Android apps‘ and then click the Android Developer Help Center link provided there. It’s certainly not as easy or convenient as in the Android version, but it’s a step in the right direction from Google. Perhaps we will see the process getting more streamlined and less troublesome in the future.
