Ganji.com stated that the new version client features more accurate search and positioning, faster Internet speed, and less Internet traffic costs. It also has a new friend-making function, which is offered to users for free.
In September 2010, Ganji.com launched its mobile client for the first time and this product reportedly currently has over 20 million users.
