Google is a gay conversion therapy app that was banned from Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft months ago. Despite pressure from LGBTQ rights groups, Google had refused to launch the app from Living Hope Ministries, saying it did not clearly violate its Play Store terms of service. A Google spokesperson said: “After consulting with outside advocacy groups, reviewing our policies, and making sure we had a thorough understanding of the app and its relation to conversion therapy, we have decided to remove it from the Play Store, consistent with other app stores. ”More than 140,000 people signed up for online petition calling on Google to ban the app. A separate petition, calling on Apple to reinstate the app, currently has 47 signatures. The ban was released more than a day after the Human Rights Campaign, Google launched this year's Corporate Equality Index after failing to pull the controversial app.
