Parler, a social networking app popular with U.S. conservatives, is returning to Google’s app store after being deleted by the Alphabet Inc-owned firm during the January 2021 U.S. Capitol riots. However, major digital companies severed relations with Parler for failing to control violent content that led to the Trump supporters’ attack on the US Capitol.
According to a Google spokesman, the app has been reinstalled after it implemented a variety of procedures to control material on the site, including capabilities to restrict abusive users and eliminate anything that might inspire violence. According to the spokesman, Parler has significantly updated its software to meet with Play Store regulations and will be ready for download on Friday.
To be sure, after being banned from the Play Store, Parler made its app available for Android phones via a second version that could be downloaded from its website.
