WeChat, the popular communication and social networking app available for both Windows Phone 7 and 8, has been updated. While the service is generally seen to be more popular in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast Asia and India, boasting over 300 million users spread around the globe, it's still worth noting that the app has been updated to version 5.1.

If you upgrade to version 5.1, you'll be able to take full advantage of the maximum size of any group being increased to 100 members. More than a single message can be forwarded at any given time and stickers can be previewed before downloading (by press + hold). Lastly, it's possible to show message not sent in the chat list. Version 5.1 is a sweet bump to an already feature-rich app.

You can download WeChat from the Windows Phone Store for free. Thanks, ahmadsamhann, for the tip!
