Short-video-making app Chingari on Monday announced it had raised $15 million in a Series A extension round. The platform said it would use the funds to enhance technology, launch new features and augment the tech team.

The app is planning to launch its live-streaming, socio-commerce, and audio chat features soon.

With over 110 million downloads, Chingari said it has witnessed a two-fold increase in its user base since April 2021. The short-video-making app aims to take its user base to 200 million by the end of this year.

“This new funding will further strengthen our position and help us deliver an immersive user experience for our community,” said Sumit Ghosh, Co-founder, and CEO, of Chingari.

With 35 million monthly active users (MAUs), the app is aiming to further increase user engagement by strengthening the local content portfolio with more than 20 languages on the platform.

Republic Capital led the latest funding with participation from On mobile, JPIN Venture Catalysts, Hill Harbour, Angellist, Venture Collective, Makan Family, Cowa Ventures, MVC Friends, Protocol Labs, and other HNI family offices.

The platform recently launched a crypto token ‘$GARI’ to make content monetization more mainstream in the country.
