BEIJING--()--DU Recorder is now the fastest-growing screen recording app on the Google Play store, according to data from app analytics firm App Annie. The app, developed by Chinese search provider Baidu, has already exceeded 50 million users since its initial release in September 2016 and is currently growing at a rate of 4 million organic users per month.

“In the near future, DU Recorder will launch a live trivia show that allows users to earn real money by answering questions within the app”

DU Recorder’s rapid growth led it to become the No.1 screen recorder app on the U.S. Google Play store in February 2018. The majority of DU Recorder’s users are in the U.S., India and Brazil, and many of them use the app to record or livestream mobile games.

To provide greater insight into the growing trend of mobile livestreaming, the DU Recorder team released an infographic on the demographics and recording habits of its users. Highlights from the infographic are below:

  • The biggest demographic out of all of DU Recorder’s users is 18-24-year-old males, at 35.8 percent.
  • The No.1 most recorded game on DU Recorder is Minecraft Pocket Edition, making up 34 percent of all recorded content.
  • After recording, most users share their videos on YouTube or WhatsApp, which make up a combined 47 percent of DU Recorder’s video sharing landscape. Only 1 percent of users share their videos on Facebook.

DU Recorder’s product team has even more features in store for its rapidly-growing user base. “In the near future, DU Recorder will launch a live trivia show that allows users to earn real money by answering questions within the app,” said DU Recorder product manager Jingmin Zhang. “For all the serious YouTubers out there, we will automatically sync your followers between DU Recorder and YouTube, to make sharing and livestreaming seamless. We’re also excited to announce that we now support PayPal for live streamers.”

When it comes to future plans and product enhancements, the DU Recorder team has big ambitions. “The people have spoken – DU Recorder is now the top recording app in some of the largest countries in the world,” said Zhang. “Now, we look forward to continuous momentum of downloads and more features to delight our users.”
