ToTok is the messaging app that was removed from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store due to spying allegations. The app has come with some specific changes, which were required by both Google and Apple to go back to the market. Despite all of these allegations, the developers stated that the userbase is going strong.
ToTok stated: “While we disagreed with the removal of ToTok from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, we have implemented every specific change requested by both Apple and Google. We remain eager to cooperate with the two companies to get ToTok back in the app stores for good.”
Google and Apple removed the ToTok app
ToTok was removed from the Google Play Store because it was believed to be an espionage tool. ToTok is one of the most popular messaging apps out there, especially in the Middle East. Several allegations were pointing, showing that the app was a good idea for spying activities.
The company wants now to reinstall ToTok on the app stores. ToTok is still talking with Apple and Google representatives, and they invited the tech companies to visit the ToTok office in Abu Dhabi. The two giants have not responded yet.
The app is unavailable on the Google Play Store and App Store
The company believes that now it is the perfect time to get back to the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, as they are the ideal app for teleworking, especially now, with the coronavirus alert: “ToTok calls on Google and Apple to work with us to make it easier, not harder, for people around the world to communicate.”
Right now, the app is not available on either the Google Play Store or on the Apple App Store. But you can get it through the official website, or popular third-party stores.
