Google Play Delists Indian Apps: Dark Day For Indian Internet, Say Startup Founders

Indian startups are criticizing Google Play for delisting their apps for not complying with the user choice billing system. According to founders, their apps were removed following a Supreme Court ruling on February 9 that declined relief to Indian app developers. The delisting came with short notice, not enough time for startups to respond. Some founders have expressed plans to take legal action against Google. The tech giant claims the delisted companies violated Google Play's policies while complying with payment policies of other app stores. This battle stems from the user choice billing system implemented by Google last year, which drew criticism from startups. Alternative app stores, such as PhonePe's Indus Appstore, have since emerged to challenge the dominance of Google Play.
