Now customers in Thailand can order food via GoFood, hail motorbikes via GoRide, send parcels via GoSend and make digital payments via GoPay. The app is available for download via iOS and Android systems.

The move follows GET app’s recent announcement that it was rebranding as Gojek as part of its long-term strategy.

GoViet, the company’s operation in Vietnam, was also relaunched as Gojek on August 5.

Gojek’s co-CEOs Kevin Aluwi and Andre Soelistyo, said: “Today marks a significant moment in Gojek's journey, and in our long-term commitment to Thailand. We're grateful to our incredible Thai team, headed by Pinya [Nittayakasetwat], who will lead us into this new chapter and for the many customers, partners and other valued stakeholders in Thailand who have supported us along the way.”

Pinya, who holds the post of country general manager for Gojek Thailand, said the company is delivering three new super apps – Gojek for consumers, GoPartner for drivers and GoBiz for merchants.

“We appreciate all who have continued to place their trust and support in us since the early days as GET. Joining us on this first day as Gojek are more than 50,000 driver partners and 30,000 merchant partners, as well as strategic partners like Siam Commercial Bank, The Mall Group and many more.”

Gojek is also introducing “GoFood Pickup”, which allows users to order in advance and pick up food from restaurants without having to wait. GoFood Pickup is in a pilot phase with more than 500 participating outlets in central Bangkok.

The Gojek app can be used in all countries where Gojek operates, including Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand.
