Google on Friday (18 September 2020) has reportedly removed the popular payments and e-wallet app Paytm from Google Play Store.

Google claims that the apps prohibit Play Store policy by processing gambling and betting related payments.

Paytm’s other proprietary android apps including Paytm for Business, Paytm Money, Paytm Mall, Paytm Instore Orders, Paytm Mall Store Manager, are unaffected and available for download from Google Playstore.

A couple of hours ago, Paytm tweeted to affirm that the existing Paytm users with installed Paytm app on their android devices can continue enjoying the service, and that their money is safe. The company also claimed that the Paytm app will be back soon on Google Play Store.

However, various users have already come up reporting the issues that they are facing while using the Paytm app.

Considering user feedback, Paytm app is seemingly not working properly. On the other hand various users have also posted their respective opinion in reply to Paytm’s tweet.
