WeChat Monthly Active Users Grow to 549 Million Globally
Singapore, 18 May 2015 – WeChat has recently announced that it has reached 549 million monthly active users (MAUs)globally, a significant jump compared to the 500 million user milestone achieved three months ago in Q4 2014.
Focusing on Singapore specifically, WeChat continues its dominance in the mobile social communication space. According to a November 2014 study by GlobalWebIndex (GWI), WeChat’s active user base in Singapore has grown by 499 percent from Q1 2013 to Q3 2014. This is expected to continue expanding as WeChat introduces more exciting, new app features that enhance its subscribers’ mobile experiences. The app is most popular with Singaporeans aged 16 to 34, and this age group dominates nearly half WeChat’s user base.
“We are excited about WeChat’s stellar growth momentum both globally and throughout Singapore – a strong foothold for the first quarter of 2015. We will continue to focus on enhancing user interaction by broadening the activities from social and communications to gaming, entertainment, media content, and beyond,” said Louis Song, Country Manager for Singapore and Malaysia for WeChat from Tencent, the company behind the WeChat app.
