TikTok removed from Google Play Store, App Store after India banned Chinese 59
TikTok App Ban in India: Users with TikTok app downloads can still use the app and send videos but officially the platform is now banned in the country.
The Indian government on Monday announced a ban on 59 domestic applications in the country. The next day one of TikTok’s most popular short apps has been removed from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. For users who can download the TikTok app they can still use the app and send videos but officially the platform is now banned in the country.
TikTok had about 119 million users in India and was among the top 10 apps in the Google Play store and Apple App store. Users who no longer have the TikTok app on their mobile phone can still use it, however, the app can no longer be downloaded. Most of China’s restricted apps in India are still available for download.
It should be noted that if you have an app installed on your phone you will still be able to see it in the Google Play store. Once you have uninstalled the TikTok app it will not appear.
Meanwhile, TikTok responded to this and said, TikTok has been invited to meet with government stakeholders for an opportunity to respond and submit clarifications..
