TikTok’s sister app Douyin recently unveiled a desktop chat software called Douyin Chat. This is another attempt at a social messaging application from the short video platform that has more than 600 million active daily users. Douyin Chat is available for Windows and Mac users and has two pages to switch between chat messages and friends lists, similar to most chat applications. However, the app offers only the chat function for now. ByteDance-owned Douyin has previously launched various messaging and social applications, but most of these products have failed to achieve traction. [Jiemian, in Chinese]
