Entertainment is the need of an hour since we are locked in our homes, hereby, we have collated five entertainment apps that you can use on your Android or iOS smartphones.
Khabri is a digital audio platform providing content in the regional language. It is the first pureplay audio platform to discover, listen and create audio content in an Indian vernacular. Except for the All India Radio, where the news is broadcast at fixed times during the day, there are no audio-based platforms for Indian audiences on news and other updates in their local languages around the clock.
In order to give more choice to local listeners, Khabri’s editors curate important and useful content throughout the day for their liberal consumption. Khabri’s platform is designed to cover local as well as national and international content for the Indian masses in their own regional languages.
60 Seconds App
Another micro-video platform from the U.S that has entered the Indian market post the ban of TikTok. ’60 Seconds? App’ is an infotainment platform that aims to allow users to discover, record, and share one-minute videos or short-format videos.
To give bait to the influencers and digital content creators, the app has launched a talent hunt in India. It aims to identify India’s most talented short-video creators across singing, dancing, comedy, business, and fashion categories. Again, this would not only give content creators another platform to share their content, rebuild a fanbase, earn money but will also act as a symbiotic relationship for the app to cater to the huge demand for the short-video content.
