Today, Google evacuated the Paytm app from its Google Play Store. Google does not support any gambling app on its platform. For information on this movement, we have approached Paytm. We will update as soon as we get data from them.
Suzanne Frey, Google’s Vice President of Product Security Privacy, said: “We don’t permit online gambling or support any unrestricted gambling app that encourages gambling.
It’s an infringement of our policy to permit an app to lead consumers to an external site and take part in paid competitions to win real cash or cash prizes”.
When an app abuses these policies, we will notify the developer and expel the app from Google Play Store until the developer complies with the app. In the event of recurrence of policy infringement, Google Play may take drastic activity, including the termination of developer accounts.
