The major step taken by India to ban over 50 Chinese apps has led to several Indian apps coming to surface and gaining the popularity they needed. With an aim to promote indigenous products and become self-reliant, a new Indian 'super' app -- Elyments -- has arrived that is touted as the one-stop social media app and competes with the likes of Facebook and WhatsApp. Read on to know more about the app.

The Elyments app has been recently launched by the Vice President of India, M Venkaiah Naidu in India. It is an umbrella app that allows you to perform tasks such as take photos and videos, talk to others, upload posts, look for interesting posts, make audio and video calls, and more. All this comes in a privacy-focused package. It claims to keep the users' data safe and secure with end-to-end encryption and the presence of data servers in the country itself.
