Less than two years after purchasing it, Reddit has officially shut down video site Dubsmash. In an auction in 2020, the social media company purchased Dubsmash in order to expand its position as the leading short video-sharing app.
Once-viral app Dubsmash allowed users to share videos of themselves dancing and lip-syncing to popular tunes. The app was removed from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store on Tuesday, and it is no longer available for download.
Jonas Druppel, Roland Grenke, and Daniel Taschik founded the New York-based video sharing app in 2014. The company relocated from Germany to Brooklyn in 2016.
