On September 18th, the Commerce Department said it will not allow TikTok or WeChat to appear on app stores in the U.S. after 11:59pm on Sunday.
People in the U.S. won’t be able to download TikTok from Apple's or Google's app stores. If you already have TikTok, you’ll be okay until November 12, when more restrictions hampering functionality will arrive.
WeChat will be gone from the app stores as well. Financial transactions are also off-limits, meaning American companies won't be able to process WeChat payments from customers and users can't send payments to family members.
Users with the apps already downloaded will also face hurdles. New updates will be blocked for U.S. users, which will likely hamper performance.
