The video style, the same tracks, the same videos, the same camera design, everything is parallel to TikTok except for the bugs.
At least some exclusive touches would have been great to offer Indian users and the Mitron app undoubtedly misses out on this aspect.

The audio is also limited and there is no option to search for diverse tracks on the application. Furthermore, the app does not hold any other video editing feature like crop, filters, and more. TikTok, on the other hand, provides a excess of options to customise the video. Users can choose from hundreds of effects including changing background, adding AR Emojis and more.
