Mitron app has noticed a sudden wave of popularity among tensions between India and China. The application also took benefit of the controversies related to TikTok since it is a true rival to the social networking platform. Now, the Mitron app has finally crossed 10 million downloads on the Google Play Store. The app developers also claimed that the app was amongst the most downloaded apps last month.
While making the declaration, Founder Shivank Agarwal told that this was possible due to the "strong sentiment of #VocalForLocal.” He also told, “We are working with our users to create a more India-centric product and we believe that is working well for us.”
If the app keeps the same speed for its growth, it might soon take on apps like TikTok on the Google Play Store. This will not happen in terms of app downloads but the user base will also end up growing significantly.
Mitron app did face a backlash when controversies about the video-sharing platform started to surface on the internet. Reports suggested the app has connections with Pakistan and it is being used to spy on Indian users. It was allegedly removed from the Google Play Store later. Once the allegations were proven incorrect, the app made a comeback to the Play Store.
