India has banned almost 118 mobile applications from China which include hugely popular mobile gaming apps, music players, and other utility apps, which were earlier widely consumed. While the loss of these apps will be felt for a while, this is a great opportunity for homegrown Indian apps to rise to the occasion, and fill the void left by these platforms. From remote working tools, to music and entertainment, to gaming, here are some of the top Indian apps you can install to take care of your varied needs.
- Gaming: MPL
Mobile Premier League (MPL) is an online gaming platform that offers over 60 fun and rewarding games including fantasy sports, Chess, World Cricket Championship Quiz, Fruit Chop, 8 ball 3D Pool, Carrom and more. Not just that, the cash prizes add to the joy of gaming, and give gamers a lot to look forward to. Android users can download the app from mpl.live and iOS users can get it from the App Store.
- Music: Wynk Music
If you’re someone who loves to work, eat, sleep, repeat while listening to music, then Wynk Music should be your one-stop shop app for the latest and greatest songs. From Bollywood hits to popular International artists, and romance to metal, Wynk music has it all.
- Social media: Sharechat

- Team Messenger: Flock
While we are working remotely, there is a constant need for smoother and easier communication. Flock, which is one of the most cost-effective business collaboration tools in the market, is also one of the most comprehensive platforms. It is an all-in-one solution tool that takes care of your company’s messaging, video conferencing screen sharing, file sharing, and productivity needs.
