Truth Social, the social media app created by former President Donald Trump, is now available for download on the Google Play Store.
In August, Google banned the app over “insufficient” content moderation policies. Google said in a statement that it permits apps on the Google Play Store as long as they “comply with our developer guidelines, including the requirement to effectively moderate user-generated content and remove objectionable posts such as those that incite violence.”
The company added that Truth Social has agreed to enforce the moderation measures on user-generated content that Google requires. Google also reinstated a similarly focused app, Parler, after issuing a ban following the Capitol riots.
Apart from these policy violations that initially prevented its launch on Android, the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG)-owned Truth Social has also been facing financial issues. Digital World Acquisition Corp, the shell company set to merge with TMTG and take it public, delayed the process and has now scheduled its shareholder vote to take place on November 3rd.
