About Xigua

Xigua Video, also known as 西瓜视频, is a Chinese online video-sharing platform owned by ByteDance.

Initially launched as Toutiao Video in 2016, Xigua is similar to YouTube, focusing on professionally-made long videos, TV programs, movie streaming, and other original productions. This is also how Xigua differentiates itself from other Bytedance-founded products such as Douyin and TikTok. Creators on Xigua receive shares of advertising revenue, just like on YouTube. According to Chinese research firm QuestMobile, Xigua Video has 131 million monthly active users (MAUs) as of June 2020.
