Wechat is a Social Media App similar to Whatsapp, but it has a lot of other features included in it. This app is available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Symbian Platform as well. A Blackberry version of Wechat is said to be in development, this is going to be a direct competition with the native Blackberry messenger. Although Wechat can be classified as a chat application it can do much more than that.
Wechat app is developed by Tencent holdings from China. Originally the name of the app was Weixin and was launched in January 2011 and was rebranded in April 2012 with the new name as Wechat.
Some of the Wechat app features for smartphones include:
- Video and Audio calling
- Group chat both text and Audio (supports up to 40 people)
- Push to Talk Voice messaging
- Shake the phone to find random Wechat users across the globe
- Find people who use Wechat app from your location
If you prefer to try out Wechat app than reading about its features then go ahead and search for it in Apple iOS app store, Android Play, Windows Marketplace or Nokia Ovi Store. It is free to download and install and does not cost you anything to use all of its features.
Anyways, Wechat app can be used to stay connected to your friends and also make new buddies easily. You can also easily share audio, video files with other users. If that fascinates you already then let me also tell you that you can share contact info and location sharing as well.
While sharing photos using Wechat you can also use photo filters and make the pics look good. The chat app also has lot of emoticons, emoji arts and also games that you can play with your friends using your smartphone.
I have installed Wechat on my phone and have been using it for over a week now. I have made a lot of friends and try the shake to find a friend feature almost every time I use the app. It is quite exciting to chat with a new individual and share your thoughts once in a while.
With the Look around feature I was able to know all the users who use this app in my area. Like Whatsapp you can also add contacts from your mobile phone and chat with them. Overall Wechat app has a great future and I hope that you will benefit from all the features that it has to provide.
