#TechBytes: 5 apps you can use in place of TikTok

Top 5 alternatives for TikTok in India

TikTok, teenagers' favorite video-sharing app, has been taken down from Google Play Store over 'pornography' concerns.

The move, which came after Centre's directive and an order from the Madras High Court, blocks people from downloading the app on Android phones.

Now, if you have used TikTok and want something similar for creating funny videos, here are some alternatives to try.

Let's take a look.

In context

Top 5 alternatives for TikTok in India
Dubsmash for creating lip-synced content

App #1

Dubsmash for creating lip-synced content

TikTok's immense popularity in India stems from the lip-synced music and movie videos and meme-worthy content it allows users to create.

You can get something similar on Dubsmash, which offers plenty of music videos and movie/show dialogs for users to choose from and act on.

The app has got over 100 million downloads and is available on Android for free.

App #2

LIKE Video - Magic Video Maker & Community

Just like TikTok, LIKE Video also offers a content-driven community where people create and share videos with their favorite movie dialogs, music, and dance videos.

The app offers millions of dialogs from all over the world to create lip-synced comedies and other meme-worthy content.

Plus, you get nearly 300 effects, filters, scenes as well as editing tools to produce and share funny short videos.

Triller to create professional music videos in minutes

Triller is not an ideal alternative for TikTok, much like the other apps we've discussed, but offers a seamless AI-driven platform to create professional-looking music videos.

Once you shoot, choose a track and filter, Triller will auto-edit the clip to create a professional looking music video for sharing on social platforms.

Cheez, a slightly lesser known player in this game, also offers live filters and editing tools to create lip-synced, or music videos on the go.

Notably, on this app, you will also get rewards if your content goes viral on the Cheez community and generates enough views, likes, comments, and shares.

Plus, you can take part in dance-offs and other interesting challenges.

The iOS version is present but considering Centre's directive has been sent to Apple too, we can expect its removal from App Store too.
