As we know already, Garena Free Fire is under the list of apps banned in India. It is listing alongside several apps and games that belong to Chinese tech and gaming firms. Although the game isn’t available on Google Play Store and App Store. It is still available to download on the Samsung Galaxy Store in India. However, it’s unclear whether it is a mistake or an oversight.
Since the ban order, several Indian players have reported login issues on Garena Free Fire’s official Discord channel. Fans of the game have also posted a flurry of tweets about the sudden absence of it. Moreover, several other titles have also apparently not available on both Google Play and Apple App stores.

Samsung Galaxy Store Lists Free Fire Even Now
So, players can download Free Fire on their Samsung device using the Samsung Galaxy Store. However, it’s currently unknown how long it will be available and whether it will get updates like the game used to before the ban. If you already have Free Fire on your Android device or iPhone, you can still play the game without using a VPN. But, Garena will most likely shut down the servers in the coming days.
However, it could look at making a comeback in the country similar to what happened with PUBG Mobile. Krafton took over as the publisher and rebranded the game to Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) as an exclusive experience for Indian players. Garena is expecting to make an official announcement about the Garena Free Fire ban soon.
