Here’s why Paytm and Paytm First Games have been removed from Google Play Store

Paytm Application, today, suddenly disappeared from the Google Play Store along with the Paytm First Games. Though other applications like Paytm Business and Paytm Mall are still there. On the other hand, Paytm is available in other app stores including Apple’s App Store.

Obviously, it causes panic in the maximum of the customers especially those who have a Paytm bank account. To reassure then, Paytm Twitted, “Dear Paytm’ers, Paytm Android app is temporarily unavailable on Google’s Play Store for new downloads or updates. It will be back very soon. All your money is completely safe, and you can continue to enjoy your Paytm app as normal.”

Now, we have come to know that the Paytm app violated Google’s new rules around online gambling. As per the sources, the Google team repeatedly notified Paytm to fix the issues with their app, but they continuously violate the Google policies.

Before a few hours of Paytm get removed from the Play Store, Google’s Vice President of Product, Android Security and Privacy, Suzanne Frey posted a detailed guideline through a blog where she wrote, “We have these policies to protect users from potential harm. When an app violates these policies, we notify the developer of the violation and remove the app from Google Play until the developer brings the app into compliance. And in the case where there are repeated policy violations, we may take more serious action which may include terminating Google Play Developer accounts. Our policies are applied and enforced on all developers consistently,”

“We have the same goals for our gambling policy. We don’t allow online casinos or support any unregulated gambling apps that facilitate sports betting. This includes if an app leads consumers to an external website that allows them to participate in paid tournaments to win real money or cash prizes, it is a violation of our policies,” she wrote further.

It’s clear that Paytm needs to fix the flaws to return back to the Google Play Store.

Some people are also wondering whether Paytm has also been banned in India or not, just like earlier several applications. If you are one of them, let you know, this issue is totally in between Google and Paytm. There is no question of getting banned still now.
