HistoryEdit

Established in July 2014, under the aegis of Relevant E-solutions Pvt. Ltd., Roposo is the brainchild of three IIT Delhi alumni – Mayank Bhangadia, Avinash Saxena and Kaushal Shubhank.

In November 2019, Roposo was acquired by InMobi's Glance Digital Experience Pvt. Ltd.(the mobile content platform and part of the InMobi Group).[6] When the Chinese-owned video-sharing app Tiktok was banned on 30 June 2020, the app saw a huge spike in users with several TikTok users registering on Roposo.[7]

TechnologyEdit

The open platform has some features such as a TV-like browsing,[8] different channels, a chat feature that lets buyers and sellers converse directly through the platform, and creation tools such as an option to add voice-over, music and GIF stickers for videos and photos.[9]
