Articles about Mitron

Often called as India’s answer to its Chinese counterpart TikTok, Mitron is a social media platform where one can “showcase their innovative videos inline with our theme of light humor.” Within a month, it has seen over 50 lakh downloads, and has received mostly positive reviews from its users. Its Google Play page claims that it is “based out of Bengaluru, India,” but of late, news reports have emerged that say that it is not made in this country, but has been bought from a Pakistan-based software developer Qboxus.
