This year the Indian Government banned TikTok and PUBG Mobile, two of the most common applications in India.
PUBG Mobile revealed that it is returning to India with a new game update for country users.
TikTok feels confident of returning to India as the company keeps its staff and partners with the government.
In an email to workers, TikTok India chief Nikhil Gandhi said the company tries its best to come back to India.
ByteDance, a parent company of TikTok, runs TikTok and Helo operations in India.
ByteDance has 2,000 workers in India who this year have got a salary bonus.
An annual performance assessment cycle has also been carried out and the company has expanded its workforce during this period.
TikTok was banned earlier this year along with 58 other Chinese applications for safety reasons.
The initial answer of TikTok was that the firm would meet with officials and work on TikTok’s concerns.
Gandhi claimed on TikTok’s current stand with the government: “We are unambiguously committed to compliance with local law, including privacy requirements, and therefore hopeful on a positive outcome. We have made our clarifications to the government and will continue to mitigate any further concerns.”
It is not verified that TikTok is returning to India, and it still doesn’t have an official title. However the company expects a “good result” and we may very well see a return.
Soon after the interdiction, reports about the acquisition of TikTok operations from India by Microsoft, Reliance, and even Airtel were released. But no official announcement was made so far.
The largest number of users and downloads from India was received by TikTok.
With a powerful viral creator-based network, TikTok made waves globally and especially in India, something that Facebook and Google were unable to do.
There were also opponents of TikTok, but the feedback was not fantastic. Instagram Reels just days from ban Facebook also opened its TikTok competitor.
