Yes. The app was developed by the Indian government as a way to combat COVID-19 and keep its citizens safe. Though anyone around the world can download the app, it is available on Google Play and Apple stores.

However, it is not as useful for someone out of India to download the app, for the app is designed for those that are India. Aarogya Setu requires the Bluetooth to be turned on the user's device and requires access to the user's location so that it identifies how close a person is to another person who has contracted the virus.

While there may be some people outside India who may choose to download the app, it should be remembered that this app will only be effective for those who are in India. In the beginning, this used to be an app that can be downloaded by people only if they want to.

The government then decided that this app should become mandatory, especially for those who are still working. Those who are working are putting themselves at risk every day of getting the virus. There is always a possibility that they will get it more than other people.

This app is easy to download, and it can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play depending on what type of phone people have.

When the government started to introduce Aarogya Setu, it was supposed to be a voluntary app, which means that people can download it if they want, but if they do not want, they can always try not to download it. Over the past days, the government of India has decided that this should be mandatory.

This is only available to those who are in India because the database and all of the information needed to make the app work are based solely on India and not the other parts of the world. There are some details that are available regarding the symptoms that may be experienced by people. They would also be advised to isolate themselves depending on the symptoms that they will experience.

The correct answer to this question is Yes. The government of India created Aarogya Setuapp as a way for citizens in India to track if they have come across with someone who has tested positive for the virus. For the app to work, the user must have Bluetooth enabled on their phone. They must also give the application access to their location, which they will turn on through the settings.

This is necessary because the application must have a way of tracking the user's location, which can solely be done by using the users location. Tracking the location allows the app to tell the user if they have come in contact with others who have contracted the virus.
