Toutiao, a news aggregation app, boast some 120 million daily users -- equivalent to almost the entire population of Japan. Now it wants them to shop online too while reading the news. Toutiao, of course, is owned by Bytedance, the startup that hosted Tim Cook when he was in Beijing last week. The addition of yet another app to its portfolio shows just how big Bytedance's ambition is.

One of China’s most popular news apps, Toutiao uses AI algorithms to generate an endless story feed for its 120 million daily users. It’s run by Bytedance, the company behind viral short video app Tik Tok.
