Apart from these, a popular smartphone game Garena Free Fire earlier disappeared from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Also, neither Apple nor Google have released a statement related to the disappearance.

Very little official information is known about the complete list of banned apps right now. However, as per the report by ET Now, the new list of banned apps primarily includes clones of apps that got banned in India since 2020. These reported bans would make the list of banned Chinese apps in India to 320 from previously 270 in 2020.
