Review

WeChat is a free voice messaging and mobile text service that allows you to keep in touch with your friends, no matter how far you are from each other! It was first released in China, but it is now present in almost every country. In addition, it supports a large amount of different languages such as English, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean and Chinese, amongst others. It is available for different platforms such as Windows Phone, iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Symbian.

This application allows you to make video calls and create group chats easily!

WeChat is a great alternative to other well-known apps that lets you send free messages to your contacts, such as WhatsApp or Line. It offers the ability to do live chats with your friends. You just have to hold the button in the middle and start talking when the indicator light is green. This option only allows for one person to speak at a time. You can go back to the chat session at any moment when you want to finish the live chat.

We all know our mobile phones don’t last forever, and sometimes we have to buy a new one, thus losing all the information we had stored in the chat history. With WeChat, this will never happen again! WeChat includes the ability to back up your chat history and save it to your new smartphone. You can keep it protected by setting a password. Remember: you will have just 7 days to restore the chat history or it will disappear.

Advanced capabilities

Sending text messages or creating a chat history backup can be something quite simple for advanced users that want to make the most of this application from the moment they download it. For example, the stand-out that feature WeChat offers is the ability to create a group chat QR code. Although it can look like something really difficult, it means you can invite your friends to join a group chat using a QR code. This code is automatically created, and you just have to send it via email or save it into your phone. When your friend receives it, they just have to align the code within the given frame to be inside the group chat in a short moment!

Do you want to see your friends in a live video? This is possible using the video call feature. You'll find this capability in the window chat, called “Video Call”. When you receive a video call, you will see two large buttons on your phone screen: you can choose either Accept or Ignore. When you accept it (in the case you want to do so), you can switch between audio and video modes at any moment.

Do you want to meet new friends? WeChat allows you to find your real friends or to meet new ones using its “Look around” and “Shake” features. The first one provides you a large list of people who have this application installed, who happen to be near you. On the other hand, it’s true that this option has some flaw, as it might usually show you people from China or even further away from your location, whilst you are searching for friends in Europe, for example. The “Shake” feature is more interesting because it allows you to find people who are shaking their mobiles at the same time you are doing so.
