Revenue from online games decreased by 1% both domestically and abroad.

Ad revenue dropped 18% to $2.74 billion.

Following Beijing's regulatory crackdown in 2020, Tencent remains China's most valuable company.

Despite losing almost 60% of its market value since a Feb.

2021 peak, Tencent is still a $373 billion company.

The company's social network services saw a 1% revenue increase after its messaging platform, WeChat, brought in more from its video content.
