WeChat is a popular communication and social networking app that is available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8 users. The platform is most popular in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast Asia, and India boasting over 300 million users spread around the globe. The company started in China, but has recently been working hard to expand its international membership using brand ambassadors like Lionel Messi. The latest update for Windows Phone helps close the feature gap compared to Android and iOS. Let’s check it out.
The last big update for WeChat took place in early February. Back then we gained free HD calls, support for video messages, and the ability to play audio messages in handset mode to keep them private. That update was to version 4.0, so what do we get in 4.1? This is what:
- Invite your friends to a WeChat group chat via QR code
- Support sending multiple images
- Navigate to your friend’s location
- Easy to cancel voice messages sending
- Click “+” to send screenshots quickly
- Support setting font size on chat page
- Support for Thai and Portuguese
At this point in time there are more chat apps and messaging platforms than most of us can keep track of. You’ll of course be using the one where most of your friends are on. So for all you folk using WeChat what do you make of this latest update? Anything else it still needs? One advantage is that this app is available for nearly any platform you can think of – iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Symbian, Blackberry OS and yes, even BB10.
Grab WeChat for any Windows Phone by going to the Store, using the QR code below, or swiping to the right in our app.
