Google Docs, iOS version of the calendar have been updated to provide privacy nutrition label

After dragging for nearly three months, Google continued to slowly roll out updates to its flagship iOS app on Monday, including the “privacy nutrition label” that Apple required to provide when the update was released. The new iOS versions of Google Docs and Google Calendar released today have bug fixes and performance improvements.

Most importantly, with the update, Google has provided information about the collection of user data, and these details are now displayed on the App Store page of the app.

Like the newly released Gmail update, Google Docs and Google Calendar will also collect and possibly link general user information, such as search history, location, contact information, usage data, and other indicators. Today’s App Store release is the latest in a series of updates to Google. The search giant has previously been accused of delaying app updates to circumvent the newly adopted App Store feature, which requires developers to provide insights on how its apps use user data.

In response to criticism, Google said in January that it plans to “soon” release updates with the necessary “privacy nutrition label.” Although the company subsequently released some minor application revisions, the updates of major products such as Gmail have been suspended for several months, and the reason for this abnormal state has not been announced so far.

Apple’s app privacy label was launched in December 2020 and requires iOS app developers to disclose what data they or third parties have collected during the next update, and how this information may be used. Similar to the past App Store policy, apps can stay in the store without publishing a privacy label, but the new rules will take effect when the update is submitted.
