Above linked APK file contains eWeLink 4.16.2. Update November 10th, 2021, 14:10 GMT+1: The above linked APK file now contains version 4.17.0.
Anonymous resources told us Google took the eWeLink app down because of a violation of a development guideline to which app developpers are tight if they want to publish their apps on the Play Store. This happens sometimes to various developers and various apps. When the violations are solved and the updated app is approved by Google the app will be available again on the Play Store.
The working of the eWeLink app itself as well all other eWeLink services are not affected. Only in-app payments for the eWeLink Advanced subscription currently do not work if you are using the eWeLink app on Android.
