By Chen Na

(Beijing) — A highflying Chinese news-aggregation app has acquired the popular U.S. video-creation platform Flipagram, making a further foray into foreign markets as competition at home intensifies.

News-distribution app Jinri Toutiao acquired the Los Angeles-based video startup for an undisclosed amount, according to a statement released on Wednesday.

The tie-up will allow Flipagram to use Toutiao’s technology to provide tailored videos for its users and gain access to Toutiao’s 175 million monthly active users.
