Users are able to access Mobike’s cycle-rental feature within the Wallet function of popular messaging app Wechat, our sister site TechNode Chinese is reporting. The Mobike bike-rental feature now appears on the WeChat Wallet interface.

This marks a further tie-up after the pair made an announcement last month that users can unlock a bike by scanning a Mobike QR code using WeChat’s scanning function on their cellphones.

The new feature is the eighth one added under the “Third-party Service” column inside WeChat Wallet, following other in-app features such as Didi ride-hailing, Meituan takeout, and JD e-shopping.
