Oppo to Launch Alternative of TikTok
The TikTok ban has opened gates for several market players to gain the confidence of loyal users of banned Chinese apps. Oppo has been eyeing this opportunity for a long time and now is taking active steps to culminate their dreams into reality. “We are about to launch our short video service in the second half of this year,” said Jimmy Yi, President of Oppo Asia-Pacific in an interview with South China Morning Post.
He further added, “Internet services will be important to our business as 5G (network roll-out around the world) continues to develop.” Oppo revealed its plan for a short video service at a time when TikTok is facing threat of a ban in the US if the ByteDance-owned platform does not quickly sell its US operations. If all goes well, then Oppo’s new short video platform could have 350 million active users globally. The mobile giant has not divulged too many details about the Oppo Video Streaming Platform, but if everything goes well, then Oppo short video service will be available to users by the end of 2020.
