BEIJING -- China had 888 million online short-video users as of June, accounting for nearly 88 percent of total internet users, a report released Friday showed.

"Watching short videos and live-streaming has become national entertainment in China," said the 48th China Statistical Report on Internet Development. It added that the number of Chinese live-streaming users reached 638 million, accounting for over 63 percent of total internet users.
