Parler Android App Time for Google Play Store

Right-wing social media marketing app Parler is time for the Google Play Store after being kicked off following deadly Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the united states Capitol. Google had banned the app over posts that incited violence, saying the app’s content moderation was lacking. It now says the moderation has been improved and meets its requirements.

“As we’ve long stated, apps can easily appear on Google Play provided they adhere to Play’s developer policies,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement Friday. “All apps on Google Play that feature User Generated Content (UGC) must implement robust moderation practices that prohibit objectionable content, offer an in-app system for reporting objectionable UGC, do something against that UGC where appropriate, and remove or block abusive users who violate the app’s terms useful and/or user policy.”

Following the Capitol insurrection, tech companies were quick to drop the Parler app from their platforms as evidence suggested it had been used to demand violence and plan the attack. The Parler website, that was hosted via Amazon Web Services, was also dropped, taking the social media marketing site offline entirely. Parler found a new hosting company per month later. The app returned to the Apple App Store in-may of this past year.

The news headlines about Parler’s go back to Google Play comes each day after US President Joe Biden gave a speech contacting Americans to “reject political violence with the moral clarity and conviction this nation can muster.”

The news headlines also comes as Truth Social, another right-wing social media marketing platform, is looking to get reinstated to Google Play. Truth Social, owned by Trump Media & Technology Group, didn’t get approval last month, with Google saying the business needed to execute a better job of content moderation. Google said Truth Social is focusing on addressing its concerns.

Parler could go back to the Google Play Store as soon as Friday, CNN reported.

Parler didn’t immediately react to a obtain comment. The business told CNN that lately it’s worked “continuously” to upgrade its systems.
