Google approved Truth Social to appear on the Play Store

The Truth Social app endorsed by Donald Trump has arrived on Google’s Play Store after months of delays due to concerns over content moderation policies. Axios reports that the two sides had been negotiating to approve the app since late August.

Truth Social appeared in the App Store back in February. In turn, Android users had to use the service’s web version or download the app themselves. Google reportedly noted problems with moderating content on the app, including physical threats and content that incites violence.

Google requires apps with user-generated content to have policies to prevent offensive behavior, such as threats of violence, and mechanisms to enforce those policies. The Truth Social service didn’t meet these standards when it first tried to launch on Android in August. But now the company has addressed those concerns.

“Apps may be distributed on Google Play provided 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,” a Google spokesperson said.
