Abu Dhabi-based telecommunications company Anghami has announced a new update to its profile social networking app, which now offers users 1.4GB of free storage. Anghami’s update comes after the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) announced the end of data roaming charges for UAE mobile users travelling abroad in early August. The company said that the update will also include an improved user interface and performance, as well as an expanded range of features. Anghami said that it is committed to providing a better experience for its users, and that it is working closely with telecommunications providers around the world to bring the latest trends and technologies to its app.

The company has a presence in both MENA and Europe
Abu Dhabi-based Anghami Media has a presence in both MENA and Europe, with operations in five countries: the UAE, Egypt, Tunisia, Lebanon and Turkey. The company’s goal is “to build a media company that will be internationally recognized for excellence in its field and whose mission is to contribute to the development of society.” In addition to its own platforms (including an online news outlet, an entertainment channel and a digital radio station), Anghami partners with international media organizations to provide coverage of regional and global stories.
Anghami was founded in 2010 by Mohammed Al Meshal, who serves as CEO. The company has raised $50 million in capital over the past three years, most recently announcing a Series C funding round led by Doha-based investment firm Qatar Sports Investments worth $100 million. Anghami says it plans to use the funds to grow its content offerings (including new editorial teams for its various channels) and expand into new markets.
Anghami has been praised for its journalistic integrity and for its focus on quality over quantity; according to one columnist, the company “has managed not only to keep up with but also occasionally surpassing established competitors.” The company’s success has made it a target of interest from larger rivals; last year, Egyptian state television network Nile TV announced plans to launch an Arabic version of Anghami’s flagship YouTube channel.
In 2018, Anghami was acquired by the Abu Dhabi Media Investment Authority (ADMI) for $500m
In 2018, the Abu Dhabi Media Investment Authority (ADMI) acquired the Israeli-based digital media company Anghami for $500 million. The ADMI is a government-owned investment firm that was created in 2006 to invest in commercial and creative projects in the UAE. Anghami is best known for its video content platform, which offers a wide range of content including original programming, documentary films, and educational resources. Given the growing demand for quality digital media content in the UAE, Anghami’s acquisition by the ADMI is a major step forward for the company.
