Gab, the conservative social network that has acted as a haven for people banned from the usual platforms, has been removed from the Google Play Store for violating the company’s hate speech policy, the company reported on Twitter.
Apple rejected it from the application Store in June for similar reasons.
After all, there’s plenty of hate speech on Twitter and YouTube, however those applications are still obtainable despite a crackdown this week following the events in Charlottesville.
It seems it was a question of volume and repeated complaints about the content Gab or its society failed to remove.
You just can’t install it from the Play Store any more.

Google Play allow Malware Disguised as Messaging Applications in Store
Researchers at the safety company Lookout have identified a family of malicious phone apps, referred to as SonicSpy.
At least three versions of the malware, that is capable of remotely control infective phones, made it onto Google’s Play store.
But in the background, according to Lookout, the applications are capable of hijack a variety of basic phone functions.
The developer rebranded the resulting applications with names involving Soniac, Hulk Messenger, and (in an apparent bit of humor) Troy Chat.
“The actors behind this family have shown that they’re capable of getting their spyware into the formal application store,” Lookout writes, “and its build process is automated.” That proposes similar deceptive applications can make it into the Play Store again.
