NEW DELHI: India on Tuesday blocked 43 Chinese mobile applications from accessing by users in India. This action was taken based on the inputs regarding these apps for engaging in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order.
Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has issued the order for blocking the access of these apps by users in India based on the comprehensive reports received from Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Center, Ministry of Home Affairs.
Snack Video was flying high
But this decision of the government comes at a time when Snack Video was just soaring onto new heights, especially after the ban on TikTok. According to the latest data from analytics firm Sensor Tower, Snack Video was the most downloaded app, registering 190 million downloads since June 29, the day when ByteDance-owned TikTok was banned in India for being a Chinese app.
What is an alternative app for Snack Video?
The best alternative for Snack video is Tna Tan App made by Livik Technology because it's very similar to Snack video and tik tok and they also giving chance to earn money.
What is Snack Video?
The Snack Video app was launched by Kuaishou Technology earlier this year. The company is based in China and draws its funding from Tencent. This app was announced on a global platform as a competitor to the popular TikTok app that is owned by ByteDance.
It has been available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store for a long time because it managed to escape the sight of the Indian government when it issued the list of the first set of banned apps. But, the government has identified the app it deems is harmful to the nation and announced to ban it.
What can you do now?
The ban will soon come into effect, if not immediately. It will be better if you save all your videos and creations from the app to your local storage to ensure you do not lose access to them. Snack Video will soon be blocked by internet service providers and telecom companies in India. You still have a range of apps to create short-form remix videos, including Chingari, Roposo, and Mitron TV among others.
