What’s next for our 10 Million Animaker Users? - A note from our CEO!

We did it!
Yes. We just hit our 10 Millionth unique user, a little over 6 years after the commercial launch of Animaker.
Though it seems ages ago, it was only in 2017 that we celebrated reaching 1 million users. And Today, a milestone 10 Times bigger than the one we crossed in 2017 has been breached.
It’s truly a remarkable milestone and we're incredibly proud of it. We're honored to see so many of you use Animaker to turn your ideas into kickass videos.
So, I take this chance to say “Thank you!” to our most awesome users.
With nearly 1 Million videos created every month, we owe all this growth to you, our users. For years, you have consistently motivated us and also provided impactful feedback. That has really helped us improve the product in every way possible.
Whether you're a novice, creating your video for the first time or one of the Fortune 100’s employees, who use Animaker on a daily basis, we owe it to you for helping us shape the tool into what it is today.
Before anything else, I want to reflect on the little moments that brought us here today:
And what a journey that has been!
A significant part of our growth came in the last 12 months since we opened up Animaker 2.0 to the general public. Since then we have added over 5 Million users!
Some of you reading this might be back on Animaker after a long time, some might even be completely new here. To help everyone, we’ll summarize both:

Do you remember Ronan and Kate?, the darlings of Animaker 1.0?
The cute little munchkins that made their way into Animaker 1.0 during Father’s day, 2015 sparked so much delight among the users and were among the most used characters for a long long time.
When Animaker 2.0 launched with just the adult characters, our users bombarded us with requests for the kids characters to be launched in 2.0 as well.
Well we listened and the first set of kid characters are set for release really soon.

3. Making Animaker accessible for every Asian:

Ever since the launch of Animaker 2.0, we saw a massive boost in user base from Asia.
Animaker has grown incredibly fast particularly in countries like India and Indonesia.
So after having launched Animaker in 12 languages already, we plan to launch in 7 new regional languages like Swedish, Chinese, Arabic, Hindi, Bengali, Indonesian and Thai.
Is the language you want not on the list?
Just send us an email on help@animaker.com and we’ll get in touch with you. :)

4. 70,000 New Icons to take your videos to the next level!

Great videos should have an exciting plot and great visuals.
While everyone concentrates on the characters and backgrounds used, some tend to overlook the finer details that are created by the use of properties and icons in the video.
Most times, it happens because the app they use doesn’t come with a massive collection of properties or icons. But that’s not the case with Animaker.
While Animaker already has a massive collection of properties and icons. We are taking things to the next level with an all new collection of 70,000 new icons.
Whaat? 70,000 icons, really?
Yes, Absolutely!
