Google re-allows Parler onto Play Store

Google re-allows Parler onto Play Store
News in brief

Google has re-allowed Parler, a social media app commonly used by far-right users, onto its Google Play Store, according to reports.

The move stands in contrast to Google’s policy regarding Truth Social; the Trump-owned social media platform which is still disallowed from the Play Store.

The tech company had removed Parler from its app store in January 2021 over concerns regarding its content moderation policies, primarily in relation to the attempted insurrection on January 6.

The decision to reinstate the app has been reportedly made after Parler complied with Play’s developer policies, including implementing robust moderation practices.
