*Sigh*. The app is removed from Google Play. These kind of things, as well as the Signal outage, are not helping efforts to help people switch to better messaging alternatives. It is a nice illustration of centralisation of power though.

@Erik there is no practical solution to app stores that doesn't require running an app store. none that doesn't also worsen the user experience, that is. in terms of business, it's of their interest to run it, but even if it weren't... i mean, Signal is centralised...
@Erik i think it might be constructive to take a look at how one could realistically find an alternative to it
