🇨🇳Chinese "Super Apps" (Andrew Philbrick)

Whereas the rest of the world's mobile phone users have a number of apps they use for social networking, payments and shopping in isolation, in China the WeChat or WeiXin "super app" is a one-stop-shop. In this talk Andrew will discuss how China's mobile app ecosystem developed and show some examples of Chinese super apps.
