WeChat is a multi-purpose app developed by Tencent, the same company behind the highly successful PUBG game. Interestingly, WeChat is more than just a messaging app as it comes with an overwhelming number of handy features. Aside from being a messaging app, WeChat also serves as a social media platform, and a digital payment system. It is not going to be described as a super app for no reason. With billions of users worldwide, WeChat is indeed on top of its game. This app allows you to communicate with friends, share your unforgettable moments with everyone, and turn your conversation more engaging and fun.

Using WeChat is simple. The app is designed with a neat and user-friendly interface that you can easily navigate and explore. Simply download WeChat either from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store to get started. If you are using WeChat for the first time, the first thing you need to do is to register an account. Once done, you are free to set up your WeChat profile and let the app get access to your Contact List to see which of them already have WeChat accounts. You can start chatting with your friends using text, photo, voice, video, location sharing, and more. You can also create or join a group of up to 500 members.

Aside from the text messages, you can also use the app to make video and voice calls. A group video call can accommodate up to 9 members. To make the conversation even more engaging, you can send colorful stickers from WeChat’s huge library. WeChat is also a social media platform. You can share your moments by posting photos, videos, and more to your Moment Stream. The app also features an overwhelming number of third-party services that don’t require additional installation, saving you precious phone storage and time.
