After a state court’s order, Google has blocked the access to TikTok in India. Tamil Nanu state court had asked the federal government to ban TikTok.
The federal government had sent a letter to Google and Apple to block the access to TikTok app in India. TikTok is not available in Google Play Store in India while the app was still available on Apple’s App Store.
In response to the government move, China’s Bytedance has said that ban on TikTok will hurt free speech.
