These two popular apps will be shut down in India by the end of the year


ByteDance, the parent company of TickTock, has announced that it will be launching two of its most popular short video entertainment applications in India by October, namely Vigo Video and Vigo Lite. The company released the information in an online note, saying it would provide users with ‘in-app notifications’. It will also provide users with information on how to download or permanently delete their personal data from the app. Bydancens also mentioned that he would use his energy and resources in other businesses. Let me tell you, the Chinese internet company Ticket is offering Vigo users the option to export videos.

Like TickTock, the Vigo Video app allows users to watch short videos of other users without usernames, but like TickTock, users need to sign in to their personal Vigo account and existing Facebook / Gmail account to create, upload and like videos. Vigo Lite provides users with the same services as Vigo Video, but as the name suggests it is a weaker version of the Vigo Video app.

Google Play Store List According to Vigo Video, 100 million people have been on their smartphones since 2017-2017 Download Although Vigo Lite 201 has been downloaded by more than 50 million users since 2018. Of TechCrunch Report According to May, the number of active users of Vigo Video was close to 4 million, while the number of active users of Vigo Lite at the same time was more than 1 million.

I tell you, bytendance Note: It is learned that Vigo Video will be discontinued in India after October 31. Not just India, the company has shut down the service in Brazil and the Middle East before India. Speaking to Gadgets3 36060, the company’s representative also confirmed the closure of Vigo Lite operations in India via Vigo Video.

However, the reason behind the sudden closure of these two applications is still not clear. However, it is believed that BitDance now only wants to focus on the development of TickTock in India, which is why the company has decided to shut down smaller video apps. The company is already advising Vigo users to use TickTalk for ‘greater exposure and a larger user base’.

As everyone knows, after a lot of controversy, the user burden of TickTock is quite high in India. However, due to the growing anti-Chinese attitude in India, the challenges of this app are increasing. At the same time, now friends have come to India to compete with this app.
