Anti-China sentiments in India are at an all-time high. If you are the one who has joined this flare of anti-china sentiments on social media. And want to support this movement, then here’s a way by which you can give your support. Boycotting Chinese smartphones can not be the solution at this time as most of the brands either use parts from China or their phone manufacture in China. But you can delete and replace Chinese Mobile apps with the Indian or USA alternatives and show your nationalism. Here’s the list of 17 Best Indian Alternatives to Chinese apps that work on both Android and iOS.
Note: For every app, you find both the Indian alternatives and US alternatives, you can choose the best working companion on your device.
Alternatives to TikTok – Roposo & Triller
Roposo and Triller are alternatives to the TikTok app. Roposo is an Indian-based TikTok alternative, while the Triller app is a US-based TikTok alternative. Both apps are bagged with similar functions that are available in its rival app TikTok. Talking about the Roposo, then this app knocks up the app store with Indian languages support, WhatsApp status sport, 20+ built-in channels, and more.

While this is not in the case with Google Chrome and JioBrowser, Google Chrome is a well-known web browser that packs a bunch of useful features.
