UC Browser disappears from Google Play Store over 'misleading ' promotions

Google Play Store APK Update

To be sure, UC Browser is still listed on the Apple's app store and UC Browser Mini, a toned down version of the original browser, is available on Google Play Store. According to Internet Trends Report 2017 by Kleiner Perkins released in June this year, UC Browser was the sixth-most downloaded application on Play Store in India.

The popular browser application UC Browser has been taken down from the Google Play Store following allegations regarding data leak. So far, there is no official information on the app's disappearance. As a user, you can save a considerable amount of data because the browser is designed in such a way to load data faster.

UC Browser, in its most recent statistic, had over 100 Million users and accounted for roughly 32% of the browser market in India.

Anyone who owns an Assistant or Chromecast device knows how easy it is to set it up using the Home app, but now Google is giving us a reason to open more often. He tweeted that the UC Browser has been displaced from Google Play Store for 30 days because of opting invalid means of promoting the app and increasing the installations.

There's a very SEO-like ("voice optimization") approach to getting your app recognized and invoked by Google in this "implicit" scenario.

McAfee reported that malware named Grabos had been found in 144 applications on Google Play. The reports that surfaced even suggested that the data was being collected even after the user has uninstalled the browser.

The affiliate even threatened to stop payment settlement or even recover the losses suffered by UC Union due to the browser. Users can, however, still download a completely functional APK file from the developer's website and sideload it on their Android phone. The de-listing of UC Browser app was first spotted by netizens - who then took to post the same on Reddit.

The new features come roughly a month after Google added a number of new additions to its Home family of smart speakers, along with the Pixel Buds, which have recently started shipping. They're also adding "implicit discovery" so that users can connect to an Assistant app with contextual commands that don't necessarily include the name of the app.

At the time of writing this report, UC Browser continues to be unavailable and I will update this story if I hear back from the company or anything changes on the Google Play end.
