2015 - Mobile messager Tango gets in-chat shop to strike back at Viber


Mobile messaging app Tango launched an in-app commerce service called Tango Shop, powered by two retail heavyweights, Alibaba and Walmart. The new shop is available as a new tab at the bottom of the app. Through a mixture of Tango’s own curation and learning from a user’s activity, it showcases items that can be bought inside the chat app. Payment and logistics are handled by the two partners. Tango said it takes a cut of each transaction. Despite Facebook’s recent activity turning Messenger into a platform, Tango is the first messaging app in the U.S. to offer such a service. It is initially live in the U.S. only, where most of Tango’s user base is located, but it will eventually roll out to other global markets.
