What sounds like it's optional but it's not to block one hundred eighteen more APPs considered quote prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India defensive, India security of State public order. So when they ordered these blocks that means the APP stores have to keep them from being downloaded ISP's get the order as well. I'm not sure exactly what if anything they're expected to do. There are ways around it if you're using a VPN such, but essentially, it makes it really hard to get these apps if you're in India among the list of Chinese apps being blocked, this time are popular game pub g several of the we chat spinoffs and by do the main version of chat was already blocked along with Tiktok previously, but they had a few. Chat branded sub APPs that are now on the list as well. A total of two hundred, twenty, four Chinese apps have now been ordered blocked in India.

G being singled out because they did single them out in their PA parliamentary standing committee they brought it up as an issue diva given its effect on youth like, Hey, a lot of kids play this. We're concerned about that and his Chinese shut it down like Thomson no forty, five days. No go past go just straight to jail for these APPs, and it's quite the precedent for giant country. Well, if I told you that there was a new gadget cold, the premier what would you think it was? anybody. An irony no..
