Alibaba today launched YunOS 3.0, the latest version of its customized Android system. The major update is the introduction of a “Life Services Center” (our translation).

The “Center” offers several categories of online and local services, such as movie tickets, lottery tickets, food and restaurants, music, reading, and so on. Users are able to book restaurants or buy movie tickets wherever they are.

YunOS 3.0 has integrated Quixey, the search service Alibaba invested in last year. If a user searches for a restaurant, the Quixey-powered search service will show results on a map, powered by Alibaba’s mapping company AutoNavi, and other related information from third-party apps, such as Dianping (ratings and reviews).
