In the final of the two parter episodes, we continue our conversation with Eva Xiao from Technode on the Tencent Group, specifically focusing on WeChat, the most popular messaging app in China. Eva dissected how WeChat is the platform for other popular online to offline (O2O) services and dived deep into the various monetisation models which the messaging app has built from WeChat pay to official account pages. We also discussed whether Wechat is cannibalizing QQ and how Tencent perceives disruption within their company. Last but not least, we examined Tencent’s investment strategy in gaming and their foray into new areas such as healthcare companies.
