AliExpress, Lalamove India, and more Chinese apps that were banned in India this week have now been removed from the Google Play Store. To recall, the Indian government announced on Tuesday that it was banning 43 more Chinese apps in India. The 43 apps banned in India list included popular names like AliExpress, Lalamove India, Snack Video, and more. We have now verified that most of these apps have been removed from the Google Play Store. This is the fourth major ban on Chinese apps since June and it was reported on Wednesday that China is strongly opposing the government’s move.

AliExpress is a popular consumer e-commerce app of Chinese giant Alibaba, while Lalamove India provided on-demand, same-day delivery services. These apps were visible on the Google Play Store until Wednesday but have now been pulled from the app store. If you search for apps like Lalamove, for example, you will see alternative apps like WeFast, Porter, Rapido, and so on. Here’s is the list of the 43 Chinese apps banned in India this week.

To recall, India banned TikTok and 58 Chinese-based apps back in June as the apps were seen as “prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, the security of the state, and public order.” The list included names like TikTok, CamScanner, ShareIt, Helo, Likee, Xender, UC Browser, Clash of Kings, ES File Explorer, DU Cleaner, Clean Master, and Mobile Legends. In July, the government banned 47 more Chinese apps, which were clones of the original 58 apps. In September, PUBG Mobile made it to list along with 117 more apps. However, PUBG Mobile is planning to re-launch in India soon as a new avatar designed for Indian players.
