Yoga guru Ramdev’s company Patanjali Ayurved has re-launched its swadeshi messaging app Kimbho with “new and advanced features”. Patanjali chief Acharya Balkrishna made an announcement on Twitter. He said that the official launch will take place on August 27, 2018. Patanjali spokesperson SK Tijarawala said that the app will be launched in the presence of Baba Ramdev, Balkrishna Acharya and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari.

“Patanjali family is grateful to you for keeping faith in us. Celebrate this Independence Day as Digital Independence with Kimbho(‘s) new and advanced features. There may be some shortcomings in the Kimbho app, with all (the) improvements we will do an official launch on 27th August. We welcome your comments and suggestions,” Patanjali Ayurved said in a statement.

Acharya Balkrishna also shared a link to Google Play Store listing of Kimbho app, which appears to be a trial version of Patanjali’s messaging app for Android version 1.0. We were not able to find it on the App Store. The final version of the app will be available for Android, iOS and desktop users, though.
