Gotye, more commonly known as Qinjia in Chinese, is a Shanghai-based startup that creates intuitive technical solutions for services which want to integrate communication functions. The company told TechNode it raised Series A funding from Intel Capital to the tune of tens of millions of US dollars.

Intel Capital’s investment will help Gotye to leverage the latest cloud communication solutions in the world and to apply its service to smart hardware industry. The company claimed this the largest funding in Chinese cloud communications sector to date.

The Twilio-like service provides mobile communication technical solutions, offering simple API and SDK that allow developers to quickly implement communication services into their applications. The firm aims to commoditize communication services by making them much more accessible to developers, rather than the time-consuming and talent-intensive necessity of developing one’s own tools from scratch.
