1. The government has banned Chinese apps including the most popular short video platform TikTok.
2. Now, Short-Video content creators are looking for alternatives.
Here are 5 apps that may be an alternative for TikTok.
German-based app Dubsmash debuted in November 2014. One of the first apps of its kind, Dubsmash was initially very popular, garnering over 50 million downloads from users in 192 countries. The app allows users to record videos of themselves lip-syncing to various audio clipping of their choice.
Sporting more than 23 million downloads, Triller is an AI-powered music video app that allows users to take professional quality videos in a matter of seconds. Harboring plans to expand its AI technology and orient the platform towards talent discovery, Triller is a good alternative to the TikTok app.
Dubbed “India’s alternative to TikTok”, the Chingari app is steadily rising in popularity as patriots scramble to find new ways to replace China-made products. Boasting over 2.5 million downloads in the last month alone, Chingari offers all the features TikTok does and more.
The controversial Mitron app, which was initially seen as a formidable Indian rival to TikTok, had managed to gain 5 million users within the short span of weeks. However, it was shortly banned from Google Playstore for violation of content policies and spamming, but is now back up and running.
Advertised as a surprisingly fun way to create looping videos, the Funimate app is similar to TikTok and Likee, where users can create short videos and edit them with different filters and effects. More equipped for a young demographic, Funimate is especially popular amongst children.
