Google has made a big decision amid ongoing tensions between India and China. The paytm app has been removed from the Google Play Store. Now Android users cannot download paytm app. The fantasy games offered on the app are said to be linked to the decision to remove Paytm from the Play Store. Interestingly, Google India today also released a blog outlining the Play Store’s policy on gambling. This blog post does not mention Paytm but outlines the Play Store’s gambling policies. ‘ In it, if the app takes customers to an external website to participate in a paid tournament to win money or a cash prize, it is a violation of the policy.
