The app was developed as an Indian-made alternative to TikTok. Mitron racked up five million downloads on the Play Store in less than a month. The app gained popularity in recent weeks amid anti-Chinese sentiment in the country, only to be suspended by Google for violating its ‘spam and minimum functionality’ policy.
However, the search giant recently stated in a blog post that Mitron could be making a comeback. Google claimed to have removed the app because of technical policy violations but had established a processor of working with developers to help them fix issues and resubmit the app.
