Trump’s Truth Social app is now available on Google Playstore: Report


Google Inc.’s According to a corporate representative on Wednesday, Google has cleared former US President Donald Trump’s social networking app Truth Social for distribution in the Google Play Store.

Google added that Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), which runs Truth Social, would soon make the app accessible via the Play Store.

A request for a response from TMTG was not immediately complied with.

According to a Google representative in August, the Play Store has not previously offered Truth Social because of inadequate content control.

Truth Social made its American debut in the Apple App Store in February.

Google has expressed concerns to Truth Social about violations of its Play Store policies, which prohibit materials that promote violence and make physical threats.

Most smartphone users wouldn’t have a simple method to download Truth Social without Google and Apple shops.

The primary resource for Android app downloads in the US is Google’s Play Store.

Android users may download programs straight from websites or through rival app stores, albeit the latter sometimes necessitates additional procedures and security approvals.

For example, even after Google barred Truth Social from the Play Store, it was still accessible via those channels.

About 40% of American consumers use Android smartphones.

Following the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol riots, when Trump was accused of posting comments encouraging violence, Twitter Inc, Facebook, and Alphabet Inc’s YouTube banned him. However, it took more than a year for Truth Social to reinstate Trump’s social media presence.

TMTG has promised to provide an “engaging and censorship-free experience” on Truth Social to win over a base that believes its opinions on contentious issues like the results of the 2020 presidential election have been erased from popular internet platforms.
