What's Missing in Mary Meeker's Report? | Alizila.com
What Meeker did not mention was Taobao, another powerful super app that integrates everything a consumer could possibly need into one place online, both products and services alike. Taobao’s homepage is the entry way to shop for imported products (via Tmall Global), daily deals (via flash-sale platform Juhuasuan), travels (via Fliggy) and food delivery (via Ele.me), just to name a few. In terms of consumer experiences, Taobao is the destination for all things social commerce, such as livestreaming, celebrity blogs and connecting online with fellow shoppers who share similar interests.

Audi, Renault, Honda Add In-Car AI With Tmall Genie Auto | Alizila.com
Owners of Audis, Renaults and Hondas in China will soon be able to “ask” their cars for everything from restaurant suggestions to movie tickets thanks to speech-recognition technology from Alibaba’s artificial-intelligence unit, the company said Tuesday during the CES Asia conference in Shanghai.

The automakers plan to integrate Tmall Genie Auto, a voice-controlled product from Alibaba A.I. Labs, into select models of internet cars they sell in the world’s second-largest economy. The new smart assistant for cars will allow owners of select models to request recommendations for nearby places to eat, buy movie tickets, order food for delivery, even make purchases on Alibaba’s Taobao and Tmall e-commerce platforms – without taking their eyes off the road.

Lessons about the Chinese shopper from the country’s largest discount app
Pinduoduo’s niche lies in discounted white-label goods, but the introduction of a branded goods pavilion suggests it sees an opportunity to grow its business and reputation by selling quality products to China’s lower-middle class and rural consumers.
Gamification features have turned users into unofficial recruiters for the platform, keeping cost per acquisition lower than competitors, while encouraging daily check-ins and spending on the app.
Chinese shoppers like group buying, particularly for non-luxury goods. While an earlier wave of Groupon imitators failed, WeChat’s rapid growth has facilitated this phenomenon.
