Weibo released its first mobile app update after getting listed on NASDAQ this April. In order to diversify the Twitter-like microblogging service, the new version added three popular features to new update, including online gaming, review and payment.

For the gaming sector, the company has launched an online game center, a social networking platform, as well as a World Cup-themed casual game, which claimed more than 10 million users four days after its launch.
