DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, December 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Yalla Group, the leading platform in the MENA region for voice-centric social networking and entertainment, was recently named as ‘Best Voice-Based Social Network UAE 2022’ and ‘Best Entertainment Platform UAE 2022’ by International Business Magazine. Its voice-centric group chat platform, Yalla and casual gaming application, Yalla Ludo are very popular across the MENA region.
Since its founding in 2016, Yalla Group is focused on meeting the rising demands of the MENA region’s social networking and entertainment needs and currently they are creating a regionally-focused, integrated ecosystem. The Yalla Group ecosystem also includes YallaChat, an IM product tailored for Arabic users, which is being upgraded with a new unified login system. They have also developed Waha, a social networking product designed for the metaverse. Games such as Yalla Baloot and 101 Okey Yalla have been developed to sustain vibrant local gaming communities in the region. The South American market is also a fast-growing market today and Yalla Group has developed Yalla Parchis, a Ludo game, to serve the Latin American market.
With evolving forms of entertainment comes the evolution of content and Yalla Group is catering to the mid-core and hard-core gaming fanatics through Yalla Game Limited. The beta version of its first hard-core mobile gaming title, ‘Merge Kingdom’ has been rolled out and they also plan to launch an RPG game by the end of this year.
Mr. Saifi Ismail, President of Yalla Group said, “We are proud to receive these two awards from International Business Magazine. I would like to sincerely thank Mr. Ujal Nair and the whole team of International Business Magazine for their commendation on behalf of Yalla. These accolades would further inspire us to realize our vision of building the most popular destination for online social networking and entertainment activities in MENA.”
