The Quint launches India’s first WhatsApp channel for news & content

As digital news platform The Quint gets ready to enter the fourth year, it has launched the country’s first-ever

WhatsApp news plus content channel to mark its third anniversary. This will essentially mean that readers, viewers and news enthusiast can now access the publisher’s content on the app on the go.


“The Quint has always been ahead of the curve with groundbreaking formats and content for digital, giving the Indian audiences an unusual twist on news. These three years have been a great learning experience

for The Quint, but we’re only getting started!” said Ritu Kapur, Founder & CEO, The Quint.

In the last three years, The Quint has been the fastest growing digital-first new platform in the country. It currently has a monthly social media reach of 150 million users and sees 400 million impressions a month. Across the website and its social media channels, The Quint has over 75 million users. 


The digital platform won three golds and two silvers at the South Asian Digital Media Awards in 2017. In the same year, it also picked up a total of eight awards at the Digipub Awards. It started off the current year on a high too, bagging seven awards at the Vdonxt Awards, presented by Adobe.

A flagship product of Quintillion Media, The Quint can be accessed at thequint.com in English and hindi.thequint.com in Hindi. Quintillion Media, last year, also embarked on a partnership with Bloomberg Media to launch BloombergQuint – India’s premier multi-platform business and financial media company. Quintillion Media has also co-founded Quintype Inc., a state-of-the-art digital publishing and ad tech platform.
