Social app Baymate gets 1m downloads

Love is in the air throughout the Greater Bay Area. Literally.

Wanqu (Baymate), a social app launched last year by Darelove Technology, which has offices in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, has already been downloaded more than one million times on Tencent’s Yingyong Bao Android app store, reports Technode.

Baymate is reminiscent of both shopping review platform Xiaohongshu and lifestyle app Dianping. After registering, users can jump right into a dating pool spread out across the Greater Bay Area, according to Technode.

The company behind the app, Darelove Technology, was founded in December 2017. An English-language, international version of Baymate that also makes use of location-based services will launch in 2020.
