The development comes after Twitter has found itself in a fierce tangle with Indian authorities, over the issue of taking down 1,100 accounts and posts that the government argues are spreading misinformation about the farmers’ protests against new agricultural laws.
What is Koo app?
Koo App is Indian version of Twitter. It allows users to write opinions on anything using text, audio, or video. It offers users to either convey thoughts in 400 characters or a one-minute video. Koo is available for download on both Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
Koo app downloads grew four times in six months
Bidawatka revealed that over the past six months, since the announcement of Koo being one of the winners of the MyGov Aatmanirbhar App Challenge, downloads for the app has grown 4x.
Speaking to News18, Bidawatka said that Koo has now crossed gross downloads of 3 million, and added that he naturally expects the growth pace of his app to continue at a steeper, more exponential pace in the next few months.
Giving further details, Bidawatka said that in the coming days, Koo app will likely undergo a few changes as it matures into a more engaged ecosystem.
Moreover, Bidawatka confirmed that as of now, there have been no communication from the Indian government to Koo in terms of operating policies, or any guideline as such.
Ranks among one of the top made Indian apps
Talking about Koo when it first made news after being ranked as one of the top made in India apps, Bidawatka had projected Koo’s adoption among politicians in India.
The founder also underlined the rationale behind a platform like Koo, saying, “A personality like PM Modi would not want to associate with a platform like TikTok. However, a platform like Koo can give him good scope to reach out to his vernacular followers, such as those who speak Gujarati.”
