Google In all honesty, this has taken far longer than I anticipated. Google, the world's largest internet advertising company, has removed several popular ad-blocking tools from the Play Store. While they are technically in the right to do so - they violate the Play Store developer distribution agreement - it's still a bit of a dick move. Luckily, though, unlike some other platforms, you can easily sideload the adblockers onto your Android device.

That's probably down to the change of management. Rubin might have turned a blind eye to it (in the interest of keeping an open platform), where as Pichai who has now stepped in might be stamping his authority on the project (as many managers do in the first few weeks of their new job).
