Six months since the ban on several Chinese applications including TikTok, Google has made a big bet on short video and content space in India. It has backed InMobi Group's Glance, a lock screen content platform, as well as Dailyhunt's parent company VerSe Innovation for its short video platform Josh.

The funding comes from the $10 billion India Digitization Fund that was launched by Google CEO Sundar Pichai in July.

CNBC-TV18 spoke to Naveen Tewari, CEO of InMobi Group; Virendra Gupta, founder of VerSe Innovation; and Umang Bedi, co-founder of VerSe Innovation, for more details.
