Google confirmed to TechCrunch that it did remove ToTok from the Play Store, but didn’t say why. The company did, however, make it clear that the app wasn’t pulled due to an outside request from, for example, a government agency. TechCrunch speculates that a policy violation is what caused the app to be removed. The updated version of ToTok that appeared in January added a prompt to allow the app to access users’ contact list, according to Vice. Just because ToTok was removed from the Play Store doesn’t mean Android users can’t access it — it’s still available on third-party app stores, and ToTok’s website offers an APK file to install the app directly.
