Along with this, people downgraded the rating of the TikTok app on Google Play Store due to the ongoing war of YouTube vs TikTok. A campaign is also running on the internet to ban TikTok in India. TikTok is a chinese short video-sharing social networking app. Recently, Carry Minati, who is a famous Indian YouTuber, made a roast video on YouTube vs TikTok war.
The video was breaking all records and had become the most liked non-music Indian video, but YouTube later removed that video due to some policy violation issues. After that, Carry’s fans were enraged and they campaigned to downgrade and ban the TikTok app. However, Google Play Store later restored the TikTok rating as it was before.
The use of Chinese apps can be gauged from the fact that about 40% of the top 100 apps on Google Play Store are from China. The most popular ones on this list are TikTok, SHAREit, PubG Mobile, and UC Browser. Billions of people are using these apps through which China generates a lot of revenue from India.
