Updated: Aug 30, 2016 14:08 IST

New Delhi [India], Aug 30 (ANI): The chat app 'That Gives Back' Tengi today announced a significant milestone in its Indian journey. The newly launched chat application has crossed three hundred thousand downloads within three months of its rollout in India. Tengi was introduced to India in April this year.

Tengi has pledged to give back at least 50 percent of its advertising revenues to users every week. Since its launch in April this year, 'the chat app that gives back' has paid out Rs. 4,35,53,292 in prize money through its weekly prizes. So far over 48,000 winners have been recipients of this prize money.

Packed with great features including messaging, audio messaging and group chats with up to 100 friends, Tengi also allows users to add their Facebook friends without having to access their phone number from the contacts list.

Currently attracting over 6000 downloads a day, Tengi is on course to crossing the million user mark by April 2017.

"We are very happy to be in India and are overwhelmed by the response that Tengi has

received in the short 3 months that we've been here! India is the world's fastest growing smartphone market and it makes incredible sense for us to be part of this exciting growth and energy. Going forward we're on track to crossing a million users before April 2017. We also have some really interesting plans lined up for India including new features, language updates and an even more enhanced user experience," said CEO Tengi, Neil Laycock.

"We believe that everyone who uses our service has a value, and in contrast to other chat or social media services, we want to share this value with our users to give back to our community no less than 50 percent of the revenue we've earned, as prizes in our weekly free prize draw. With Tengi, sharing the value becomes a weekly event that's exciting for users and their friends, and gives everyone something to chat about," said Chief Architect Tengi, Kit Lewis. (ANI)
