Marking two years of its inception, Moj today has announced the launch of Moj LIVE, a live video streaming platform that enables creators to authentically showcase their talent and deeply engage with their users in real-time. On 1st July 2020, Moj was launched by ShareChat in a record 30 hours. Today, it has grown to become India’s number one short video social network with over 160 million MAUs, 4.5 billion views per day, 50 million creators, and over 2.5 million unique content created daily. Moj has also become the leading video commerce platform in the country through its exclusive partnership with Flipkart.
With Moj LIVE, creators from across the country can create highly engaging content across different creative formats such as live talk shows, live game streaming, jam sessions, stand-up comedy, shayari, cooking, astrology, and much more. They will have the cutting-edge tools and features to manage live sessions at a large scale, all in their preferred language. Moj users will have access to real-time entertaining content from the creators they love across India and be able to engage with them directly.
To help creators monetize their content on the platform, Moj LIVE has unique virtual gifting options where fans can appreciate and reward their favorite creators using innovative 3D digital tokens. Besides this, through live commerce capabilities, creators can promote brands and sell curated products to their follower communities.

We are proud to lead the way in bringing this next-generation content platform to our creators and providing holistic value to them through innovative engagement constructs, virtual gifting, and live commerce.
Since our gradual roll-out in the last couple of months, we have witnessed rapid adoption of Moj LIVE from our creator community with more than 600,000 live streams hosted by over 150,000 creators. Users have consumed over 275 million minutes of live content on Moj with more than 600 million real-time engagements with the creators. As we announce the broader rollout of Moj LIVE today, one million users are already consuming live video content on Moj every single day.
