TikTok and WeChat will no longer stay available on apps stores from Sunday, September 20, in the US. This morning, the commerce department released a press statement to announce prohibitions of the apps. It was actually in response to US President Trump’s executive orders.
Earlier on August 6, President Trump signed executive orders issued notices to ByteDance and Tencent, the owners of TikTok and WeChat. He stated that the US should block the apps in order to ensure national security.
Although, new users within the United States cannot download these apps already-existing users can still use them. However, they will no longer get any further updates from app stores.
Meanwhile, TikTok’s partnership with Oracle in US and the shift of global headquarters to US is yet to be finalised. Oracle and possibly Walmart are in fact still only in talks with the White House, Treasury Department and ByteDance.
