Mizuu is back on Google Play!

Mizuu is back on Google Play!

Hi friends!

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.

  3. Awsome, this app still remain one of my favorite apps. Im in Kuwait right now so i havent had any good technology in a while but im wondering, is the app compatible with Chromecast?

    • It works with a number of third party apps. It’s not yet built-in, as I have some other more important stuff to do first. Not saying that Chromecast isn’t important, but when it is possible to achieve using other apps, it’s not something that’s super high priority 🙂

  4. Congratulations, Michell! Really glad to hear it got straightened out. Looking forward to the update you gave us a preview of now that you don’t have to deal with that nonsense. Mizuu is in a class of its own.
