Many companies in China have started remote work from home as governments and companies are trying to contain coronavirus.

Everyone came back to work on Feb 3, 2020, but stayed at home. Two of the largest enterprise platforms, DingTalk and WeChat Work, were overwhelmed by the number of users. DingTalk announced Monday evening that it served over 10 million companies and more than 200 million employees.

Companies are relying on virtual workspaces and productivity software platforms like Alibaba’s DingTalk, Tencent’s WeChat Work and Tencent Meeting (the company’s Zoom alternative). These apps continue to rank among the most downloaded apps in China.

Some analysts say that the coronavirus epidemic may transform the way Chinese companies operate. Many businesses may choose to increase their remote work in the future.
