Google is removing apps of a Chinese android app developer DO global. It holds nearly 100 apps in the Play Store with 600 million installs.
The company claims that it has 250 million, active users. And a reach of nearly 800 million users through its ad platform on Android.
The report noted that “their removal from Play store marks one of the biggest bans, if not the biggest, Google has ever instituted against an app developer.” Google spokesperson as saying on Friday that “we actively investigate malicious behaviour, and when we find a violation, we take action, including the removal of a developer, ability to monetize their app with AdMob or publish on Play store.”
DO global was a subsidiary of Baidu until it was spun out earlier in 2018. Baidu retains a 34 per cent stake in the company.
