Patanjali quietly launched his chat application called Kimbho to compete with WhatsApp. And within 24 hours of the launch of Kimbho, the chat application has disappeared from Google Play without notice. If you search for the “Kimbho” app in Google Play on your Android smartphone, you will not be able to find it. In addition, if you search for the “Kimbho” application in your PC’s browser, it is redirected to the Google Play page that shows “Sorry, the requested URL was not found on this server”. That said, it might be possible for the application to resurface again soon. “We are facing extremely high traffic in Kimbho, we are in the process of upgrading our servers and will be back soon.” Sorry for the inconvenience. “Stay tuned,” said the Kimbho Chat app on Twitter.
After recently partnering with the state-owned company Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) to launch the Swadeshi Samriddhi SIM cards, Patanjali surprised us with the silent launch of their Kimbho text and video chat application. The Kimbho app was available for free download on Google Play for a short time. Your goal is to compete directly with WhatsApp.
Patanjali’s spokesman, SK Tijarawala, tweeted after the launch: “Now India will talk … After launching the SIM cards, Baba Ramdev launched a new messaging application called Kimbho, now the Whats App will compete.” Explaining the name “Kimbho”, Tijarawala tweeted in Hindi, “Kimbho in Sanskrit means what is happening and what the news is”.
It is claimed that the Kimbho chat application is encrypted with AES and is compatible with ghost chat and automatic message deletion. With regard to file support, the Kimbho platform supports videos, photos, scribbles, stickers, GIF, among others. You can see it as a complete competitor of WhatsApp with location support as well. The application is also compatible with video chat and interesting users can also draw scribbles to share with their friends.
The Kimbho application had already bagged more than 10 thousand users just a few hours after its launch. He also received an average rating of 3.9 stars on Google Play. Like WhatsApp, you need access to almost all device permissions such as microphone, contacts, photos, videos, WiFi, device ID and others.
