Google Play Store removes 'Remove China Apps'
New Delhi : Google Play Store has become real active in removing applications from its platform, after removing TikTok's rival application Mitron, it has also removed the 'Remove China Apps' from its platform. And there is no official reason behind the decision.
Created by Jaipur-based OneTouchAppLabs, the Remove China Apps garnered quick popularity riding high on the current anti-China sentiment that’s prevalent in the country. OneTouchAppLabs tweeted about being pulled off from the Play Store.
According to the rules, Google Play Store removes applications which allegedly violated the policy guidelines. That’s what happened with Mitron. A report notes that Google had “red-flagged” the app and decided to suspend it for violating “spam and minimum functionality”.
However, for those who have already downloaded the application, it will work fine for them. It’s just that others will not be able to download it now.
The Remove China Apps had almost one million downloads on the Play Store and till Monday night, it was the top-free app on it. There seems to be no real technical issue as far as the Remove China Apps is concerned, except that it’s racist, but clearly Google Play Store has its own reasons.
