Short videos and live streams enhance Internet users’ experiences and social interactions. Kuaishou – which means “quick hand” in Chinese — was originally founded in 2011 as a mobile app so people could easily create and share GIF pictures. In 2012, the app transformed into an Open Source community platform that allows users to record and share videos depicting their everyday lives. The Kuaishou app topped Google Play and Apple App Store’s “Most Downloaded” lists in 8 countries in 2020 and has over 775 million active users worldwide. The company is headquartered in the Haidian District of Beijing, China.
