What is Mitron?
As per the description on the Play Store, "Mitron is a free Short Video and Social Platform. It is designed for people to showcase their innovative videos inline with our theme of light humour." The app's seamless interface allows user to create, edit and share their videos. They can also browse through a library of top videos across the globe. Looking through the images of the app on the Play Store, the interface looks very similar to that of TikTok. A user's profile page, the making of videos looks almost the same.
How Does it Work?
If a user has to make videos, then they will have to make a profile on the app registering with a username and a password. Otherwise, one can just scroll on the homepage for watching through other videos that are uploaded. For recording a video, there's a red record sign button on the screen. A user can record their content and publish it for others to see. While you are watching the video, there is an option to like, comment and share it.
If you have been familiar with using TikTok, the application Mitron is just the same. As per some tweets, it is launched by an IIT Roorkee student and is now among the Top Charts on Google Android Play Store.
