VK: 2019 in Review
When youíre really into what youíre doing, there isnít always time to stop, take a step back, and reflect on how much youíve accomplished, what your strengths are, and what steps to take next. This upcoming New Yearís is a great time to take a minute and look back at how this past year went.
And it went great! We released around two hundred major updates: a third more than in 2018.
We launched grants for content creators, a podcast catalog, a new community menu, thematic news feeds, the Focus media product, and a regional representative program. We simplified the verification process, held our fifth VK Fest and VK Hackathon, and reminded users about moments important to them with Memories. And remember that time when we mined VK Coin and waited for dark mode to be released?
2019 is almost over. We spent it together and accomplished a lot!
Unlike other apps, regardless of whether theyíre social networks or online banks, VK has long been a super app. Here, we can not only chat or share content but also listen to music, make purchases, play games and transfer money. And thereís even more we can do with the VK Mini Apps platform, which, at the moment, hosts 13 thousand active mini apps. With them, we can order food, book taxis, play games, and pay for mobile services all without leaving VK. You can find everything you need to have fun, learn new things and handle everyday tasks.
We know exactly what the upcoming year will bring. A new generation of mini apps, useful, appealing and fun. New tools that youíll use to share content and earn money on it, conduct business and attract new clients. We canít wait!
Until next year,
