Amid growing -China border tensions, top Chinese tech company  , which is also the parent company of short-video making app , is set to quit its edtech business in India.

This comes a year after the Indian government slapped a ban on TikTok, ByteDance now runs education learning app and music streaming platform Resso in the country.

According to reports, “ByteDance is shutting down its edtech business in India.” The company has already let go of most of the employees. The edtech division at present employs over three dozen people in India.

Meanwhile, SnapSolve says it is “the choice of over 1 million Indian students for doubt-solving and learning.” The app helps students from classes 6 to 12.

“SnapSolve is a doubt-solving app providing instant solutions to math, physics, chemistry, biology and science doubts and NCERT book questions. Similar to Vedantu, Byju’s, Doubtnut, Quesgo, Snapsolve is a free learning app that insists on building your unique learning experience,” reads its description on Google Play Store.

Further, the Indian online edtech space is booming, with several new platforms receiving a great amount of funding in the remote learning era. In 2020, the Indian government banned several apps developed by Chinese firms, including TikTok, over concerns that these apps were engaging in activities that threatened the national security and defence of the country.

Reports have also surfaced this year that ByteDance has started selling the AI technology of the short video-making app to other companies, including in India where the app is banned.
