The concurrent user accounts of QQ, the instant messaging service of Tencent, reached a new record of 200 million on the night of April 11 (Beijing Time).

QQ, with PC-based versions and mobile apps, had 808 million monthly active users as of the fourth quarter of 2013, according to the earnings report, and the concurrent users were 180 million in that quarter.

It’s been four years since the company announced the 100 million record. Now more than 70% of the concurrent users log in through the Mobile QQ app, according to the company. It’s not surprising for, while many users only log into the PC-based QQ client when needed, almost all users who have downloaded QQ mobile apps into their phones would log in automatically.
