ByteDance, the company who gave birth to the most favourite social media application Tiktok, has launched a new chat application called Feiliao, or Flipchat in English. The company has launched the new application with the support of Alibaba and it is launcher in its homeland China.
The new application will give a head to head competition with WeChat – which is the most favourite application of the Chinese market. The all new Flipchat is a hybrid of an instant messenger and interest-based forums, and the application seems to be focused on a niche market.
Flipchat also allows users to make payments, food delivery and other kinds of convenience apart from the communication. The payments service is backed by Alibaba through Alipay — a digital wallet.
In a statement, the company said, “We hope Feiliao will connect people of the same interests, making people’s life more diverse and interesting.”
Speaking about the availability, the application will be available on both Android and IOS platform. As I mentioned above, the application is launched in China which means only the Chinese users can able to use the application at this moment of time. And there is no information about the availability of the application in other parts of the world. But we expect that the company will launch the application in India very soon. As the company’s Tiktok has huge popularity in India.
