Parler's App is Back on Google Play Store!

Parler's App is Back on Play Store!

According to a tweet from the social media site, Google has reinstated Parler on the Google Play Store after removing the app in January 2021 due to the platform's lax filtering of messages encouraging violence at the US Capitol. After briefly banning it around the same time Google did, Apple temporarily reinstated Parler to its App Store in May 2021.

According to a Bloomberg report, Parler, which promotes itself as a free speech platform, has agreed to monitor comments that appear in the Play Store app. The business previously disclosed to The Verge that it has a similar agreement that enables it to continue appearing on the App Store.

Everything that is allowed on the Parler network but is not available in the iOS app will still be available on our web and Android versions. (At the time, the Android version could be side-loaded; as a result, it was exempt from Google Play guidelines.) The business added that its system could find violent material that goes against its rules.

Former president Donald Trump's social network, Truth Social, has encountered similar difficulties. Parler is not the only social network that has been in discussions with Google to get on the Play Store. The app's developer, Digital World Acquisition Corp., claims to have been negotiating "in good faith with Google" to join Google's app distribution network despite the company's mounting debt.

Trump has posted messages on the site that might be in violation of the Play Store's user-generated content guidelines.
