Airbnb, Google, and Uber have teamed up to offer an “escort services” platform that allows users to hire, schedule, and book “escorts.”
The platform, which has been in beta for the past month, lets users choose from an array of escorts, which can include women from across the globe.
Airbnb announced the partnership in an internal memo.
“Our goal is to bring a level of professionalism and customer service to the escort industry that will make escorts more accessible to all users, and also to create a safe and welcoming environment for our guests,” Airbnb said in a statement.
“We believe that the escorts of the future will be a mix of locals, tourists, and professionals.
We believe that people who use the platform can have a fun and relaxed experience with escorts.”
Airbnb has already announced plans to add 100 more hosts this year.
The company also says it plans to provide its service to more cities around the world, including Singapore, and to help other companies offer services to the escort industry.
The platform has been around since 2012 and offers a variety of escorting services, including one that lets users schedule and book a “date night” with escort for an hour, according to the company.
Airbnb is already a major player in the “sharing economy” industry, offering a “rent-a-car” service to help people rent out their cars and pay for rides.
It’s unclear how many people would use the “escorting” service, but it’s certainly more than Uber and Airbnb.
