MX TakaTak is one major place to go if you desire to reach a predominantly Indian audience. However, MX TakaTak is spreading across the world too as it has merged with Share Chat’s Moj which is the largest Indian short video app, with over 160 million MAUs and over 50 million creator communities in 15 Indian languages. This merger will lead to one of the biggest shifts in India’s social media and entertainment system.
HISTORY OF MX TAKATAK
Barely one month after Tiktok was banned from India along with the other 59 Chinese apps in 2020, MX Takatak was released.
Following in the footstep of Moj, the MX TakaTak app began to thrive till it garnered an average of 150 million users every month.
According to MX Media CEO Karan Bedi: “As India’s largest digital entertainment platform, MX has always strived to build superior world-class products, and Takatak is no exception. This combined with Moj’s AI and execution capabilities makes the combined business a truly world-class short video platform. MX has created two ‘unicorns’ within one business, unlocking significant value for our shareholders, and will now continue to double down on OTT [streaming], with significantly increased financial resources.”
The MX Takatak currently has 767,166 downloads on the internet. On the Google Play store currently, MX Takatak crossed 100 million downloads. For an Indian app currently entering the market, this is a huge feat.

If these people also watch it to the end then it spreads further out.
Irrespective of whether you’re a musician, actor or a food brand, if you’re creative enough to blend entertainment (humor, music, etc), Education (important tips and hacks that link your business to the everyday lives of your people) and encouragement (touching people hearts by telling them what is important for them to hear) with your brand content, you’ll have the advantage of content.
Another thought to consider under this headline is to use sounds for your video. MX Takatak gives you access to a number of songs that can serve as the background sound for your video. The most viral videos on MX Takatak have matching sounds backing them up.
