Trendspotting: Dubsmash goes viral on social media, finds an admirer in PM

In an increasingly app-savvy world, there is a new kid on the block that’s making ripples all over social media. Just a few months old, Dubsmash has caught the fancy of the common man and celebrities alike.

Dubsmash lets you lip sync to movie quotes, songs, cult advertisements and much more. You can shoot your video while lip syncing to your chosen genre and share them on social networks. The developers claim there are already over 50 million ‘dubbers’ who have used the app.

Dubsmash has become quite popular among celebrities from all arts. Be it Hollywood, Bollywood or Tollywood, stars from all over the world are hooked to this new app.

The newest app has gone viral in the virtual world. Dubsmash has been around since the last couple of months, and has recently found way into Prime Minister Narendra Modi's den too. A Twitter user sent a dubsmash video the lines of Modi's speech during the Lok Sabha election, the official Narendra Modi handle retweeted it and also replied saying that the PM is 'pleasantly surprised'.

Here is PM’s reply to the video:
 

This new app is seeping into social media to garner more and more fans. According to market reports, the app has received over 950,000 mentions on Twitter globally in the last one month.

Since founders Jonas Drüppel, Roland Grenke and Daniel Taschik launched Dubsmash in November 2014, the app has been downloaded more than 20 million times. It became the number one app in the iOS store in the founders’ home country, Germany, later climbing to the same spot in 29 other countries, including the UK and France.

From Alia Bhatt to Rihanna (who launched her latest single in March using Dubsmash) all seem to have struck a chord with the app as they dub their favourite dialogues. It is to be seen where is “viral” situation takes Dubsmash.com.
