Hello,

I sent an update for my app. I didn't change even title or description. Just bundle file. They said my app title contains WhatsApp and I was using it in correct way like : "for WhatsApp". They accepted this title in the beginning but now they terminated my app. WTF!!

Can I create new app with same icon and screenshots?

Did you appeal? If you think you are right, why don't you appeal?

Already did. waiting for response. Are they reviewing manually before suspend it?

I wish you lot of luck.
Sometimes I had the same issue and the reviewer did not give a shit and just banned the whole account.

I hope your app get reinstated but I doubt it :)
Please keep this thread updated for us

Check the Google Play TOS.

Now check the OLD Google Play TOS. (wayback machine)

Notice the difference?

"for WhatsApp" was accepted, even recommended. No longer the case.

They asked to remove "for WhatsApp" from the Title? or they accepted your appeal but you decided to remove "for WhatsApp" anyway?

They accepted and said that your app has unclear affiliation with whatsapp and you should change your icon or title.

so i changed title.
