Tencent-backed short video app Kuaishou launches mini game similar to WeChat’s offering

Kuaishou, one of China’s hottest video-sharing and live-streaming apps, has introduced a new feature allowing users to play games inside the app without having to download them separately, highlighting the race among Chinese tech start-ups to become all-in-one entertainment platforms.

The gaming feature was reported by some mainland-based Kuaishou users this week after they found a casual title called Tiao Tiao Qiu, which roughly translates as “Jumping Ball”. The in-app game allows users to swipe their finger across the screen to keep a ball hopping on platforms in a twisted row, and collect points for each successful jump. Players can share their scores with their friends on Kuaishou. So far Tiao Tiao Qiu is the only game available inside Tencent-backed Kuaishou.
