We are proud to announce that µTorrent Web surpassed 1,000,000 daily active users. Having officially launched our Web-based torrent streaming client last month, we saw a sharp increase in adoption of µTorrent Web in the late stages of the beta through the full release. µTorrent Web helps users quickly download and play torrent files, including the vast selection of licensed content available on BitTorrent Now. It’s available for Windows across all major browsers and makes it possible to quickly download and play torrent files inside the browser, further strengthening our licensed content strategy by bringing simple playback to the masses.
“Our users have already downloaded our licensed content, which features both top-tier and emerging content creators, well over 100 million times,” said Jordy Berson, Chief Product Officer and COO at BitTorrent. “While the growth in our daily active users is a great validation of product market fit, we are equally proud to see that µTorrent Web drives dramatically more user engagement and playback than any product in BitTorrent’s history, which is a huge win for our 30,000+ licensed content creators.”
We continue to work hard over the remaining months of 2018 to end the year with new features, including the ability to stream files that are stored on the user’s home computer to an Android device. Plans to launch BitTorrent Web, a similar product, are also in the works and will soon be available on bittorrent.com.
