Google, Amazon and Apple shutdown access to downloads from Google Play and iTunes in 2021. Amazon suspended Amazon Web Service to Parler in 2021.

Parler, based in Nashville, was founded in 2018 by John Matze and Rebekah Mercer, the daughter of the billionaire hedge fund manager and Breitbart founder Robert Mercer.

On September 2, 2022 Parler’s app became available again on Google Play Store, after Parler reportedly agreed to moderate posts that are shown in the Android version of the app.

On September 16, 2022 Parler announced that it had restructured as Parlement Technologies, and would acquire the California-based Dynascale as part of an effort to expand into “uncancelable” internet infrastructure services.
