Mitron App was becoming quite popular, similar to the Tik Tok, which was created for the purpose of competing with Tik Tok. But meanwhile, Google has removed it from its Play Store.
Why Mitron App was getting so popular?
Mitron App, an alleged Indian short video app created in response to Tik Tok, has been removed from the Google Play store. Let us tell you that this app is becoming quite popular for some time, but this debate is still going on whether this app is from India or not.
Why “Mitron” is in controversy?
According to the report, Google has removed it from the Google Play Store for the voiding of spam and minimum functionality policy. In this policy of Google, it has been said that it is against the policy to upload content without making changes or adding some other apps.
Overall, this policy of Google says that the copy-paste app – that is, the apps that match other apps perfectly and if there is no change in their code, the company removes it. But the question is that this app has been on the Google Play store for a long time, then why did the company not take this step.
Significantly, anti-China sentiment is being made in India, and in this sequence, people are paying attention to the replacement of Chinese apps and products. The Mitron app is not new, but it has been claimed that it is from India. But how much truth is difficult to say in this claim.
Is “Mitron” an Indian App?
Mitron belongs to India or Pakistan has created this debate, the reason is its source code.
According to the report, the source code of the Mitron app has been purchased from a Pakistani software development company, named Qboxus. Since the source code has been purchased by paying money, the developer can buy it comfortably.
However, in a report, Pakistani startup CEO Irfan Sheikh has said that developers can use it as they like, because the source code has been purchased from us by paying. However, he has objected that it is not right to call it an Indian app, because its source code is Pakistani.
A CNBC TV-18 report says that Google has now red-flagged the Mitron app and suspended it. The company has cited a violation of policy.
Significantly, in less than a month, the Mitron app had been downloaded more than 50 lakh times. Since this app was said to be Indian, people who did not want to use the Chinese app Tick Talk were using it.
Currently, no statement has been received on this latest development from the Mitron app. We have tried to talk to the creators of the Mitro app about this. We will update you as soon as a statement comes.
