BEIJING – Chinese search giant Baidu has launched a search platform exclusively focusing on software news and developments in China due to officially debut on 2 September.

Baidu launches software focused search platform in China

The Baidu software portal allows users to search for computer and mobile software only. The site provides integrated search results from six external websites including Skycn.com, Onlinedown.net, Duote.com, Sina.com, Zol.com.cn and Pconline.com.cn.

The pre-launch version can be accessed via soft.baidu.com.

China Tech News reported that the soft version of the search platform also offers software recommendations in specific categories including instant messaging, anti-virus and system tools. The aim is to provide a single platform for downloads, and keep users moving from link to link.

In January, Baidu announced its partnership with Japanese e-commerce site Rakuten. According to a report on Reuters, the partnership will take flight in the first half of October.
