Gadget desk. Google’s popular video streaming service YouTube will soon launch a short-video shorts app. This YouTube app will challenge Tick-Talk, the most popular app already in India. The TicketLock app launched in 2019 has become quite popular in India. It had overtaken many big apps in terms of downloading. In 2019, it became the most downloaded app after WhatsApp on the Play Store. ByteDance, the Honor company of Tic-Talk, has also recently launched the Resso app to challenge the music streaming service Spotify and Jio Saavn.
According to reports, this new YouTube app will be named Shorts, which will be found in the YouTube application itself. It will have a feed of short videos posted by the user, in which users will also be able to use YouTube’s licensed music catalog. This app from YouTube will give Tiktok a tough challenge, in which the user will get access to more licensed music than Tiktok.
Tiktok started in China in 2016 and in 2018 it gained worldwide popularity. After this, its popularity continued to grow. It was made for short lip-sync videos, many videos made on this app also went viral. Two years ago, the company reduced the video’s limit to 60 seconds, although even then its popularity did not decrease. The use of TickTalk for the US Army and Navy is banned.
