Kuaishou returns to WeChat after six-month ban

After being outlawed by WeChat for six months, Kuaishou videos can once again be shared on Wechat Moment’s feed.

The ban, which prevented users from sharing and playing short videos through external links, was enacted since April on apps including Bytedance’ Douyin, Huoshan, Xigua Video, as well as two Tencent-backed apps, Kuaishou and Weishi.

WeChat lifted the restriction on its own short video app Weishi in August, but Toutiao’s short video apps including Douyin and Huoshan are still prohibited to be shared in the messaging app. The short-lived ban was believed to be part of Tencent’s strategy to compete with its rivals, namely Toutiao.
