Bytedance’s new social app targets users with common interests
Though Douyin is long seen as a threat to the ubiquitous social app WeChat, Bytedance has not yet ceased its march on developing chatting tools to challenge Tencent. The new app, called Feiliao, has the same idea as Fly Chat in English, is aiming at providing young people who share common interests a more diverse and splendid life. The app contains combined platforms of both an open discussion forum and private chatting groups. In-app tipping is available, which prompts a financial link to interact with celebrities.
