All the users who already installed the Paytm app on their Android mobile phones will be able to use the mobile wallet and other services that the Paytm offers. Paytm posted a tweet that the application would be restored very soon. Apart from Paytm, the Paytm First Games will not be available on Google Play. Google recently posted its gambling policy and they do not promote sports betting. With Paytm promoting fantasy cricket, Google Play decided to remove Paytm app from their list. “We don't allow online casinos or support any unregulated gambling apps that facilitate sports betting. This includes if an app leads consumers to an external website that allows them to participate in paid tournaments to win real money or cash prizes, it is a violation of our policies,” wrote Google in its blog.
