The Google Play Store has removed the Mitron app, launched a few days ago to compete with China's short video sharing platform Tik-Tok. Currently, this app was downloaded by five million people. In such a situation, this move of Google seems quite amazing. Well, Google is a money-minded unethical internet business corporation who just knows how to mint money and nothing else.
Google has revealed the reason for removing this app from its play store. Google says that this app has many security flaws, due to which it has to take this step.
But no official statement has been released by the developers of Google or Mitron app about it. Due to the removal of the app from the Play Store, people who have downloaded it on their phones may have problems. So you have to uninstall this app immediately from your phone.
After this development another app named Remove China Apps has been removed from the Playstore.The Google Play Store has removed Remove China Apps, which has been becoming quite popular since the last few days. This app, which came in May, got more than 50 lakh downloads in a few days. Through this app, you were able to delete all the Chinese apps on your smartphone. This is the reason why this app got the direct benefit of the anti-China sentiments emerging in India.
For users whose phones have this app already downloaded, it will continue to work in their phones. This is the second popular app in a day which was removed by Google. Earlier on Tuesday, the Mitron app, which works like Tiktok, has also been removed from the Play Store.
This app was included in the top trending list of Google Play Store. The Remove China app was developed by Jaipur based company OneTouchAppLabs. The company has confirmed the removal of the app from the Play Store via a tweet. However, the tweet did not say what caused the app to be removed.
But according to TechCrunch's report, this app has violated the Google Play Store Deceptive Behavior Policy. Under this policy, no app can make any changes to the user's device settings or features outside the app, as well as not to incite the removal of any other third party app.
If Google is pushing its pro-China business agenda then people will surely replace the whole Google system in one go and for those who believe it to be impossible must the remember the story of Orkut has to how it was made disappeared in India.
