FrostWire for Android is no longer available on Google Play

As of September 18th, 2018, the FrostWire Android app has been taken down from Google Play due to a DMCA take down request.

We have submitted a counter DMCA notice immediately after receiving the DMCA notification and learning that our app was suspended. In the notice, the company claimed their content was uploaded to the FrostWire app and provided screenshots of their content being played in the FrostWire Music Player.

Asking for reinstatement, we made it clear that it is technically impossible to upload any content to FrostWire. We explained that FrostWire is a tool, a BitTorrent client, a downloader for a distributed peer-to-peer network and that as such, it does not host, index, nor has the ability to control the content it is technically capable of downloading from third party sources.

We have appealed with Google and were denied the reinstatement.

We are dumbfounded that an unsubstantiated claim from one company can so easily remove an app that’s totally legal, has millions of users, 4+ star rating and almost 8 years on the Google Play store.

With over 80% of our user-base running on the Android platform, in a world where the majority of android installs occurs through a centralized app store monopoly, we don’t see a viable path forward. After 14 years the team is ready to move on to other passions and challenges.

We want to take this opportunity and thank our users for the support and kind words we’ve received over the last few days and invite everyone to update their Android and Desktop apps directly  from our Github repository or from the project’s SourceForge page.

We hope that in the end, a free, uncensored and decentralized internet will prevail.
