Google Plans to Launch Censored Version of Search Engine in China

Google is planning to launch a censored version of search engine in China. This new version will block websites and certain search terms.

The new version will work in a very simple way. Once the platform detects controversial keywords, it will filter and block websites. Search terms such as human rights, democracy, religion and peaceful protests will be among the words blacklisted in the search engine app.

“We provide a number of mobile apps in China, such as Google Translate and Files Go, help Chinese developers, and have made significant investments in Chinese companies like But we don’t comment on speculation about future plans,”

The official said that the project does not currently have approval from authorities

Main search platform of Google is blocked in China along with its video platform YouTube, but the company has been attempting to make new inroads into China.

According to an inside source, only a few hundred members of the 88,000 employees know about this project and they are not permitted to contact the media. The reason behind not contacting media is moral and ethical concerns about role of Google in censorship.
