The popular mobile communication and social networking app WeChat has been updated to version 4.0. The Windows Phone client has been bumped to include further support for Windows Phone 8, Microsoft's latest mobile platform. Already available for Windows Phone 7.5, WeChat can now be utilised by those running new or legacy hardware.
The cross-platform service provides users with text, voice notes, images, videos, location data and more. WeChat also provides a private, group-based photo sharing network for images and more - think of Rooms in Windows Phone 8. All that's required to get going is a phone number and you're then able to use the service - pretty neat.
So what's new in version 4.0 for Windows Phone 8? According to the app description:
- Free HD video calls.
- Support for video messages: record a video and share it with your friends or loved ones.
- Play audio messages in Handset Mode to keep your messages private.
You can download WeChat from the Windows Phone Store. There aren't any advertisements located within the app, which is a nice touch. Thanks, afgzee, for the tip!
