SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. – October 4, 2018 – BitTorrent, Inc., the company behind the world’s most popular P2P communications protocol and products, today announced that µTorrent Web surpassed 1,000,000 daily active users. The company, which officially launched its Web-based torrent streaming client last month, saw a rapid 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.
Jordy Berson, Chief Product Officer and COO at BitTorrent, had this to say about the new milestone:
Our users have already downloaded our licensed content, which features both top-tier and emerging content creators, well over 100 million times.
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.
The company aims 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, will soon be available on bittorrent.com.
