ByteDance is not divided into divisions by business lines. There are only three core functional departments: user growth, technology and commercialization.
User growth is responsible for user acquisition and retention. The technology department handles product development while the commercialization department is focused exclusively on monetization.
There are many, many, ByteDance apps. The majority of which are built for the vast China market.
Today ByteDance is a sprawling corporate leviathan. Much like other large internet conglomerates, it has expanded into a myriad of online services consisting of gaming, education, enterprise productivity, payments, and much more. This is made possible by three flagship businesses: Toutiao, Douyin, and TikTok.
