Alphabet’s Google announced on Wednesday that it has launched an artificial intelligence game on Tencent’s WeChat.
The game, named Caihua Xiaoge in Chinese, is similar to Google’s web game “Quick, Draw!”, which requires players to draw a simple sketch of the named object in a limited time of 20 seconds. This game is based on Google’s AI image recognition technology, and is a WeChat “mini app”, which works only within WeChat.
Caihua Xiaoge is the first mini game offered by the search engine in mainland China, where most Google services such as Gmail, Google Maps and Google search have not been available since 2010.
Google in January announced a patent licensing deal with Tencent with the intention of collaborating further in the Chinese market. Last month, the US firm also invested US$550 million in JD.com Inc., China’s second most valuable e-commerce firm which also counts Tencent as an investor.
