New Delhi: Google on Friday said it has removed Paytm app from the Play Store for violation of its policy on sport betting activities.
Paytm will not be available for download now but there will be no impact on existing users of the app.
Google also said that only the app availability on Play Store is impacted and there is no impact on users.
In a tweet, Paytm said Paytm Android app is temporarily unavailable on Google's Play Store for new downloads or updates.
"It will be back very soon. All your money is completely safe, and you can continue to enjoy your Paytm app as normal," it added.
In a blog on Friday, Google said it does not allow apps facilitating sports betting and will remove such apps from the Google Play Store.
"We don't allow online casinos or support any unregulated gambling apps that facilitate sports betting. This includes if an app leads consumers to an external website that allows them to participate in paid tournaments to win real money or cash prizes, it is a violation of our policies," the blog post said.
