The most popular short video app TickTalk may make a comeback in India soon. According to the report, Tiktak’s parent company, Bytdance, has filed a new trademark with the Indian Patent Office. The spelling of ticktalk has also been changed in this trademark. Let us tell you that in June last year, the Government of India banned 56 Chinese apps, including Ticktack. Since then, the TickTalk app has stopped working for Indian users.
Does the app come with a new name?
Tipster Mukul Sharma revealed this trademark in his Twitter post. The Post said Beatdance filed a trademark application with the title of TickTalk on July 6. According to Gadgets 360, it is filed under the Trademark Rules, Class 42 of 2002, Class 42A. It includes “Scientific and Technical Service and Related Research and Design; Industrial Analysis and Research Service; Design and Development of Computer Hardware and Software”.
