Elyments to Sharechat's Moj, Indian apps dominate Google Play Store's trending section
Even apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, messenger and others are not there in the Google Play Store’s ‘trending’ list. So what all Indian apps are there? Read on.
Indian government banning 59 apps from Google Play Store has definitely led to the rise of Indian alternatives. Chinese apps like TikTok and others that often stayed on top trending list are now replaced by Indian apps, a sight that we don't see often. Even apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, messenger and others are not there in the Google Play Store's ‘trending' list. So what all Indian apps are there? Read below:
Elyments is leading the ‘trending' chart on Google Play Store. The social networking app lets you share updates, chat with friends, make video calls, voice calls and more. The app is made by Sumeru Software Solution, which was started by a bunch of IIT students. It has received a 3.5 app rating on Google Play Store.
Hind is the second trending app in the list. Not a popular one, the app claims itself as India's own video creation and sharing app, the same which can be said for the now banned TikTok app and Chingari app, which recently rose to fame. With 4.0 app rating, the Hind app is said to be completely free.
Third in the list is “Changa Indian app: Create and share short videos”. The app is made by BITCS and has received over 4 app rating. Some key features include video streaming, video creating, connecting with others and sharing videos.
Moj is another app that is in the top five trending list in Google Play Store. This is also a video creating and sharing app that lets you browse videos through different categories. It is also available in Hindi, Telugu, Marathi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Malayalam, Bengali, Tamil, Kannada, Odia, Bhojpuri, Assamese, Rajasthani, Haryanvi & Urdu.
Josh is an app made by Dailyhunt and like the other four, is a video-based app. The description adds that the app is made in India and lets you connect with others. It has garnered 4+ app review ratings and is free to download.
In addition to this, some Indian apps are topping the charts. Some of the apps include Roposo, ShareChat and Trell, which is also a short video app like the aforementioned ones.
