Google turns enabler: Helps TikTok regain lost rating

It would seem Google has a soft spot for TikTok, as the search giant seems to have gone on a damage control mode on behalf of the Chinese short video creation platform. Popular Twitter user, Nobert Elekes tweeted that Google helped boost TikTok’s ratings from 1.2 to 1.6 stars by deleting over 5 million reviews overnight. 

TikTok’s user reviews had suddenly plummeted on Play Store from 27 million users to 22 million users from last week. It is unclear why the search giant had to resort to such extreme measures of favouritism.
