iHandy is one of world’s largest mobile app developers; established in 2008, later in 2016, setting up the team in Silicon Valley.
Google removed applications of Chinese developers earlier too, raising concern for the future of Chinese developers.
According to details, Google claimed of investigating the developer company because apps taking information about users and the data can be leaked anytime for any purpose. Earlier, Google banned two big Chinese app developing companies; Do Global and Cootek in April and July respectively, which had over a billion downloads.
It is expected that Google will issue the reason behind removing the apps of iHnady right after the investigation concludes.
