Google has pulled down Paytm and its gaming app, Paytm First Games, from the Play Store for violating its policies.
Responding to this, Paytm tweeted saying Paytm Android app is temporarily unavailable on the Google Play Store, and asserted that users money is safe and that it will be back ‘very soon’.
Paytm is one of top unicorn in India, with over 10 million downloads on the Google Play store. Last month, Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma revealed the company is witnessing up to 3.5X growth in transactions on its platform amid the COVID-19 pandemic and resultant lockdown as users turned to digital payments to make payments in a safe manner.
Paytm’s other apps, including Paytm for Business, Paytm Mall, and Paytm Money are still available on the Play Store. Paytm is available for download on the Apple App Store.
