Google Play has removed support for a popular game-related YouTube app called spaghetti works from its platform, following complaints that it was causing problems for some players.
The game, developed by French company The Dice, has become popular in recent years as an alternate version of games that can be played in full-screen mode.
It was first launched by Google in 2015, but Google now recommends that people who have purchased it on the Play store install it through its developer channel instead.
The Google Play Developer Program, the program Google uses to manage its Android apps, also removed support from the popular spaghetti works game on October 29, 2016.
Google said the decision was based on a number of factors, including a number reported issues.
It added that it is investigating the issue.
In a statement to TechRadars, Google Play’s marketing manager for Android apps said: “The spaghetti works app has not been updated to use Google Play games for some time, but this has not stopped people playing it from using it.
Google Play is working to address the issue and has removed it from our store.”
This week, Google said it had removed the app from its Play store for users with no Google account.
Google did not say when it had taken action.
YouTube, which provides a video streaming service for Android, is a mainstay of mobile gaming, and Google has struggled to keep up with demand for its games in recent months.
Google Play Games is one of a number apps that have been banned by the company for being “incompatible” with Google Play.
It has been a frequent target of online piracy, with users downloading pirated versions of games on pirate sites and distributing them on YouTube.
In its statement, Google reiterated its support for the spaghetti works experience.
“We’ve been working to improve the experience for our customers and developers by removing spaghetti works in our Google Play app, but we’re continuing to investigate the issue further and will continue to make improvements to make the experience even better for all our users,” the company said.
