Rolled out in 2011, WeChat has become one of the country's most popular social media platforms, with about 1.13 billion monthly active users by the end of June.

Tencent has stepped up cooperation with carmakers in recent years in its shift of focus to the industrial internet. It has inked partnership agreements with 21 automakers including BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi to roll out solutions for connected cars on 45 models.
