Now that the door is ajar Google are slowly trying to make inroads into the world's largest market, the Chinese market.

The deal also follows a year of massive growth for Tencent, which posted a profit of $2.7bn in November and became the first Chinese tech company valued at over $500bn shortly after.

"The agreement may smooth the U.S. company's business in China while helping Tencent's push to expand beyond its dominant position on the mainland", Bloomberg said. In a bid to continue this development, the firm has recently made a string of high-profile investments, including the acquisition of a 10 percent stake in Snapchat a year ago.
