In this week’s episode of TechThisWeek from the TechCircle newsroom, our reporters talk about how the ban on 59 Chinese apps by the Indian government is creating opportunities for homegrown rivals.
Among those that have benefitted from the ban are social media platform ShareChat, short video platform Chingari and lifestyle vlogging and social media platform Trell. Pulkit Agarwal, co-founder of Trell, joins us in this week’s podcast to share more details on how usage on the platform has soared following the ban.
