Jinri Toutiao, an information platform app of ByteDance, announced on June 14 that it has launched a new service “Jinri Games (今日游戏)”. The service is currently only available for Android users.

The service at the moment allows downloads, recommendations, and gift collection. Entry to the service is under Jinri Toutiao App’s My Wallet (我的钱包) section.

The launch signals Jinri Toutiao’s formal moves into games’ distribution and operation. As Jinri Toutiao put entry to games under the App’s My Wallet sector, it’s very likely few games would be free. The initiative behind was clear: generating revenues and cash rewards for both partner games and the platform itself.
