Sogou, the search and Internet service provider of Sohu, announced today a new mobile search app and redesigned brand logo. Similar to Baidu’s mobile app, Sogou search app doesn’t only include a search bar but also other channels, mobile app, online novel, news, weather, directory service, among others. It supports voice search too.

What’s a big deal is the search service will be integrated into Tencent’s various services, including QQ IM, social network Q-zone, online news service QQ.com, QQ mobile browser, and QQ directory website. The app debuts on MyApp, the Android app store run by Tencent.

The Chinese Internet giant acquired 36.5% a stake in Sogou last year and merged its own search service Soso into the latter, saying its stake would increase to 40%.
