Some days ago google goodbye Mitron app, a TikTok clone from play store, but it is available through Google Play store once again.
We cover the news that the short video platform was excluded from Google Play store some days ago this week for violating Google Play policies. Google said in a statement that Mitron broke its “Spam and Minimum Functionality” policy, however, google later explained that they were working with the developer to help them fix problems.
Now, the day after that clarification, the app is back on Google Play store. Before being removed, the Mitron app had achieved to cross 50 lakh downloads.
Mitron app is live and listed on Google Play store once again. The app describes itself as a ‘free short video and social platform based out of Bengaluru, India’, and its user interface is very similar like he is a small brother of TikTok.
Mitron app removed on June two from Google Play store claiming that its policy doesn’t support apps that offer ”the same experience as other apps already on Google Play.’ The system, “Apps should provide value to users through the creation of unique content or services.”
It also states that the app should provide a “basic degree of functionality and respectful user experience.”
Mitron was started in Google Play store less than two months ago and has capitalised on the anti-China and anti-TikTok sentiments prevailing in the country right now.
In the previous month, the app was reported to have a security issue that could let an attacker compromise user accounts and send messages on behalf of a particular user.
The imperfection didn’t allow any bad actor to steal personal information such as the email ID that a user had used to sign up an account on the Mitron app.
It is not clear if the developer has hardened the security of the app in the new version.
An official changelog present in the Google Play store mentions UX (user experience) changes as the only new thing in the application.
