I just received an e-mail from the Google Play team, notifying me that Mizuu has been reinstated on Google Play. Yay! There wasn’t any specific reason or anything like that – it just said that it has been reinstated with a condition: I have to re-upload a policy compliant version of the application. I’ll do that as soon as possible. This version will include an adult filter that’s built upon the existing adult filter.
I haven’t tried to contact Google for the last week or so, so I’m not sure what exactly caused it.
This means that you’ll be able to get Mizuu directly from Google Play again, and all existing users will be able to use it again.
Also, this changes nothing in terms of you being able to download Mizuu from the website. You’ll still be able to do that and Mizuu will remain open-source.
I’ve just re-published the application on Google Play, so it’ll be available within a few hours for everyone.
Thanks for your kind words and support through this. I’m certain that the all the noise about the removal has helped change Google’s mind.
