TikTok competitor Zynn blames Google Play removal on ‘isolated incident’
Video app Zynn has recently blamed its removal from the Google Play Store on an “isolated incident” that should soon be resolved following accusations of plagiarism.
It is worth noting that Google has removed video app Zynn from its Play Store amid allegations that it has been stealing content from other applications.
Zynn has gained huge popularity in the United States in a short span of time since its launch in May thanks to its rewards programmes.
From watching videos to inviting friends to download the app, the company rewards users in the US and Canada with cash.
To recap, Zynn was created by Kuaishou, a Chinese video app maker.
However, as per the tech publication Wired’s report, Zynn is “filled with videos that appear to be stolen from creators on other social media platforms” including TikTok.
Zynn spokesman Rocky Zhang told AFP that the app was removed from Google Play “due to one complaint raised on one video.”
“This is an isolated incident that has triggered a routine investigation from Google’s platform. We expect this issue to be resolved shortly and look forward to seeing Zynn reinstated on the Google Play Store,” he said.
Being an ardent supporter of original content, the app provides users with a one-click complaint feature in order to safeguard the creators’ rights, according to Rocky Zhang.
