Quartz: A new search engine from WeChat could change China’s internet

Quartz: A new search engine from WeChat could change China’s internet. “Today the company publicly unveiled (link in Chinese) a feature—called ‘Search,’ simply enough—that lets users enter keywords and find relevant information.
While WeChat has had a search feature in the past, this one is more powerful. It’s not quite a search engine in the style of Google or Baidu, the reigning search engine of China. Rather, it’s an alternate vision of search, one that’s uniquely suited to a social media app. And it could very well become huge in China.”
