New Delhi: Mitro app, the so-called Made in India alternative of TikTok, is back on Google Play store after it was removed due to violating privacy policies.
Google in its statement had said, “A number of recent app removals received particular attention in India and we wanted to clarify our actions. Earlier this week, we removed a video app for a number of technical policy violations. We have an established process of working with developers to help them fix issues and resubmit their apps. We’ve given this developer some guidance and once they’ve addressed the issue the app can go back up on Play.”
Mitron is developed by an IIT student who goes by the Shivank Agarwal.
Mitron app received a great response and was downloaded by millions of people. However, the app was under scrutiny after a Pakistani coding company dismissed claims of Mitron being a made in India app and said the source code of the app is developed by them.
