Only last week, TikTok launched a new campaign in partnership with the United Nations Development Program. The name of this campaign is #GharBaithoIndia. In this, users have been invited to tell them how to protect themselves during the lockdown. At the same time, earlier TikTok had provided a video streaming facility of 480p resolution only on SD quality through the mobile network during the lockdown in view of national consumer interest. At the same time, if users are using broadband or Wi-Fi connection, then only they will be able to enjoy HD and Ultra HD quality.
