Video sharing app for Desis

Chingari is a short video-sharing platform created by Bengaluru-based developers, Biswatma Nayak and Siddaharth Gautam. Dubbed as the Indian alternative to TikTok, the multimedia application allows you to view and upload videos in Hindi, Bangla, Gujarati, Marathi, Kannada, Punjabi, Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu. You do not need an account to start watching Chingari viral videos. This includes access to trending news, entertainment, quotes, and memes. With a Chingari profile, however, you can start posting your own videos as well as earn from it. The total number of views on your videos can be redeemed for actual rupees. 

What is Chingari? 

Chingari is a short video sharing app that pays its content creators based on how viral their videos become. For every video you upload, you get points per view which can be exchanged for money. As India’s version of TikTok, the app can be translated into one of ten Indian dialects as well as English. The main page of Chingari displays three tabs: Videos, News, and Game Zone. 

The video feed takes inspiration from similar apps like Likee and VMate. You can swipe up or down to view videos, and click on the creator’s display picture to see their profile. You will see all their videos displayed as tiles. Other than creating videos, you can also earn from participating in mini-games and quizzes. Chingari games include Bingo, Cut the Rope and Sudoku. Expect the simpler or more straightforward games to load faster than their complex counterparts. 

On the News tab, you will find reports from local and international channels. All the articles can be read on the in-app browser. This means you will immediately be able to read the article as compared to switching between apps. By offering credible news channels, you use Changari as your primary source of entertainment and news. 

Full-featured networking platform for Desis

Chingari sets itself apart from other video sharing platforms by allowing them to discover content and trends outside of their circle of friends. In addition, you’re encouraged to showcase your talents, humor, and interests through videos as you will be able to monetize your content.
