Following the Indian government banning 59 Chinese apps late in June this year, home-grown lifestyle community commerce app Trell has witnessed a huge surge in total screen time on the app - an 800%.

Trell is a lifestyle blogging platform that allows users to create short three to five-minute-long original content videos in their native languages. It witnessed a huge spike in user base as well with five million new content creators from Tier 1 and Tier-2 cities. The platform has grown 10X since the ban and currently has a total user base of more than 45 million.
