  • Social media app Elyments has stopped working a day after it was launched by Indian Vice President.
  • The app has been developed by over 1,000 IT professionals from across the country.
  • It allows users to make new friends, chat, make audio and video calls and more.
The Elyments app crossed over 100,000 downloads on the Play Store within the first 24 hours of its launch by the Indian Vice President Venkaiah Naidu.

Dubbed as India’s first social media super app that will offer all features that are available on Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram. However, soon after the launch, several users have reported that the app is not working from several hours.

During the sign-up procedure, the user is required to verify their mobile number by entering a 4-digit OTP. However, even after several attempts, the app does not send an OTP to the user.

We tried to register on the Elyments app using four different numbers but did not receive the OTP on any number. We have reached out to the company for an update and are awaiting their response.

Several users have taken to social media platforms such as Twitter to talk about not being able to sign up for the app. Queries sent to the spokesperson remain unanswered at the time of publication.


What is Elyments?

Elyments is a social media app that has been built in India keeping in mind user’s privacy as one of the primary objectives. It supports 10 languages and allows users to chat with their friends, make audio and video calls, meet new people, get alerts and more.

The app has reportedly been built by over a thousand IT professionals from across the country.

Why this fanfare around Elyments?

The app has been launched at a time when India is engaged in a border dispute with China and has banned 59 apps, including TikTok. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been advocating for an ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ and urged innovators and entrepreneurs to build for India.

“India is an IT powerhouse and we have some of the world’s best-known names in this field. With such a huge pool of talented professionals, I feel there should be many more such innovations coming out in future,” said Vice President Venkaiah Naidu while launching the app.
