It's their right to do whatever they damn well want. Is there any law to support the idea that they should give equal space to all apps, regardless of political views thereof? No, there isn't.
Not so sure about that.

Google makes an offer to provide a free service; I'm guessing WRT the US but around here a contract is directly concluded with the acceptance of an offer.

And in any case, the reasons given were that the app was being used to organise unlawful activities, which isn't quite the same thing.
Section 230 holds the platform, Parler in this case, immune from liability for what the users publish using it, that seems likely to extend to Google Play et al.
