CitizenChat allows Indians to communicate in their own language. Malli Malta, COO of CitizenChat says that the most exciting part of this app is that it is launched in India, a place where there is...

The chain of communication is complete when the receiver can understand the exact context and meaning of the message as intended by the recipient. But with most apps of instant messaging so far in English with all embedded foreign languages, many Indians who wish to communicate in their dialects were left high and dry. Missing the comfort of reading a contextual joke ,the puns you wished to communicate and the tone will only be possible in our own language.

As Malli Malta, COO of the new instant messaging service, CitizenChat noted, “I wanted my parents to read my messages in their language, not a foreign one”. A very apt and understandable issue considering a large number of senior citizens are using these apps to stay in touch with family and friends. Isolated and nuclear living has given rise to this innate need to be in touch throughout the day.

Cultures and Languages are Part of Communication

CitizenChat app was developed with the vision to shorten the distance between people. The app effectively uses a series of tools and technologies to give a practical form to the vision of COO, Malli Matla. In the words of the COO, “The most exciting part of this app is, it is launched in India, a place where there is a perfect amalgamation of different cultures, languages, and ethnicity itself.”

The app was developed with a clear motive of creating an ally to allow users to be integrated into working communities which facilitate hiring into different types of personalised professional communities matching them to the needs and profiles of the individuals.

On the fun side, if you are exciting, spontaneous and creative, here is the perfect platform for you to showcase your talent. Creating short form videos from genres like comedy, dance, art and education is a household rage these days. There is so much talent in people and all they need is a medium to connect with people and let the world see what they can do.

Safe To Use App

Users had been using some Chinese apps for uploading short videos for entertainment purposes till now. In recent times, serious questions were raised regarding the safety of users while using the app. The Indian government took some tough decisions and as a result, the app was banned in India keeping in mind the safety of Indian users.
