Chinese short video company Kuaishou announced Wednesday that it will close Zynn, a short video app that targets the US market, on Aug. 20. Launched in May 2020, the app was part of Kuaishou’s plan to compete with ByteDance’s hugely popular social video app TikTok. Kuaishou said in a user notification that it will delete all users’ data within 45 days of the termination date. Kuaishou said its overseas strategy remains unchanged, without explaining Zynn’s shutdown, in a statement. [Caixin, in Chinese]
