The popular cellular internet browser, UC Browser, owned by China’s Alibaba group has been pulled from Google playstore since November 12.
Mike Ross, who claims to be a developer at Alibaba Group, said;
“I work for UC Browser, I got mail today morning it said that UC Browser was temporarily removed from play store for 30 days because it used “Misleading” and “Unhealthy” methods of promotion to increase install”
Over 100 million devices installed the browser on playstore as of July but UC Browser is still available on Apple appstore, Amazon’s Android store and even the official website.
However, the UC mini which is the lighter version of the app is still available on Android playstore.
