WeChat attracts 300m users in less than 2 years

The number of people using WeChat, a voice-messaging service developed by the Internet giant Tencent Holdings Ltd, has hit 300 million in the less than two years since the service was released, the Shenzhen-based company said on Wednesday.

Analysts said WeChat is "very likely" to gain another 100 million users over the next 12 months.

"If the number of mobile Internet users continues to expand at the current speed - if it hits 550 million by the end of this year - the number of subscribers will certainly rise to 400 million," said You Tianyu, senior analyst at the market research company iResearch Consulting Group.
