Bytedance has recently launched in overseas markets its enterprise messaging and productivity app Lark, commercializing what used to be an internal communication tool.

Released via Singapore-headquartered subsidiary, Lark Technologies, the product is an online collaborative platform that combines three functions: calendar, documents, and chat. It is available on macOS, Windows, iOS, and Android.
