How netizens reacted to PayTM’s removal from Google’s Play store

Breaking! Paytm removed from Google Play Store, here’s why

Breaking! Paytm removed from Google Play Store, here’s why

The removal happened amid the ban of PUBG and other Chinese backed apps from the Play Store after the Indian government banned several apps in different phases.

Now, all seems to be well in the app store universe, and Paytm is back online. Commenting on this matter, Paytm tweeted: "Dear Paytm'ers, Paytm Android app is temporarily unavailable on Google's Play Store for new downloads or updates".

Though the company is yet to respond to the move, Google in a blog post cited that the company violated its online gambling policies.

"This afternoon, we received communication from Google that they are suspending our app because they believe this to be a violation of their Play Store policies on gambling", the company said. Google hasn't pulled the trigger on Paytm's various sister apps either as their respective Play Store listings remain intact. "We have the same goals for our gambling policy". Google had earlier notified Paytm developers regarding this issue and were in touch with the company regarding the digital wallet and e-commerce app.

She added, "And in the case where there are repeated policy violations, we may take more serious action which may include terminating Google Play Developer accounts".

Paytm isn't the first app of significant importance banned by Google this year. In a blog, the financial services giant said, it will continue to work with Google to restore the app.

Another member can be seen wearing what appears to be a red Trump campaign hat. "Let them be an example!" she can be heard yelling.

The latest episode between Google and Paytm, bitter rivals which vie for users, merchants and market share, illustrates the competition in India's fast expanding digital economy.

Paytm First Games is an all-in-one app made by Paytm for those who want to earn money playing these games online.

Can I install Paytm if I previously used the app? But with the app back on the Play Store, you can install it as you would any other service.

In addition to the main Paytm app, Paytm First Games has also been pulled from the Play Store.

Besides payments, the Paytm app also allows users to make investments through Paytm Money.
