Fake Siri App for Android Removed by Google

[ via Chip Hazard ] 1 Jan

On 30 Dec, Imposing Headlines shared a report regarding an app claiming to be the official Siri for Android, now it has been removed by Google which has ended every possibility of it being real.
The app was fake which only used a Siri logo which only was able to point towards Google’s built-in voice recognition engine. Many people got fooled by the scam as the user who uploaded this app was called “Official App” which lead many people to believe the app being legit. 

Google just didn't stop there, they dugg a little deeper and found out that the user has also submitted another app which claimed to be an official Pinterest app. However like the previous scam it only pointed to the Pinterest Mobile Website link. That app has also been removed.
