NEW DELHI: Apple and Google seem to be responding to the government’s ban of 59 Chinese apps yesterday. Bytedance owned apps -- TikTok and Helo -- have disappeared from the App Store and Google Play. They could have delisted themselves voluntarily too, and not all apps in the government’s list have been taken off yet. Popular apps like AliBaba Group’s UC Browser and UC News, Bigo Technologies’ Likee, Xiaomi’s Mi community, Tencent owned WeChat, and e-commerce platforms Club Factory and Shein can still be found on the platforms.
