More than half of the US is now under lockdown due to COVID-19 and schools across the country have turned to remote learning. Google Classroom is one online learning and submission platform some schools were already using, and it has only become more important as in-person learning is impossible for the moment. In response, students have started spamming the app with one-star reviews, 9to5Mac reported.
Here's why students are giving low ratings.
TikTok videos tagged "#GoogleClassroom" have more than 26 million views, and many of them tell viewers to give the app a lower rating, claiming that apps with a rating lower than one star are deleted from the app store.
Although it's the number one education app in the Apple App Store and number five free app overall, it has an unusually low rating of 1.7 stars.
Students in China tried a similar method earlier this year, giving low ratings to the learning app DingTalk used in Chinese schools in an attempt to get it removed.
