Google Play Store removes the Parler app, an alternative to Twitter

Parler’s social network cemented its reputation by asserting itself as the “free speech app”. Now, it has been removed from the Google Play Store and risks suffering the same outcome in Apple’s App Store. The lack of moderation mechanisms is the cause pointed out by the American giant.

In a press release, Google says that Parler was not able to “implement robust measures of egregious content moderation”. However, Apple also warned the social network to implement better moderation mechanisms in its iOS app, under penalty of removal from the App Store.

The social network was launched in 2018, focused on the application for mobile devices and themes of a conservative nature vis-à-vis the public that mostly welcomed it. Having enjoyed some popularity waves, it aimed to assert itself as an alternative to Facebook, Twitter and other established social networks.

However, in the face of the contempt that shook the American capital and the crowds that concentrated on the Capitol, Parler was put under pressure. Quickly, what started as a reprimand would later become a removal sentence.

After some groups linked to the far right who used Parler to incite riots and violence were discovered, Google decided to remove the app. It is not now available on the Play Store for violating the App Store Policies.

In order to protect the safety of Google Play users, our policies require that applications that present content to the general public have moderation mechanisms and policies. Methods of removing egregious content that promotes and incites violence. Programmers have to agree and follow these terms and we have advised Parler of precisely these terms in recent months“. It can be read in the statement shared in full on the XDA Developers portal.

Apple can also remove Parler from the App Store

According to the Buzzfeed, Apple has also contacted Parler, anticipating a removal from the App Store. According to the report, the Cupertino giant may soon remove the iOS application from its platform for the same reasons.

The email sent by Apple reportedly filed several complaints received by the technology company and accusations to those responsible for the social network, blaming them for the recent contempt in the US capital. Stating that the app “was used to plan, coordinate and facilitate illegal activities in Washington DC”.

Parler is still available through browsers, browsers for the Internet. Note also that despite having been removed from the Google Play Store, the application can be installed via sideload, remaining operational.
