ByteDance-owned short video platform Douyin now allows its nearly 700 million daily active users to hail cabs directly from the app, local media outlet Tech Planet reported on Monday. Ride-hailing service providers can now launch their mini-programs in the hugely popular app. T3, a ride-hailer backed by state-owned automakers, Alibaba and Tencent, has already tested the function in Douyin. Douyin offers an aggregation of taxi services from various providers. But currently, only several smaller ride-hailing providers have taken the lead in rolling out mini-programs on Douyin, while other ride-sharing giants continue to advertise and sell coupons on the app. [Tech Planet, in Chinese]
