A top class app that does everything a decent messaging app should do and more. It offers a lot of extra features, setting it apart form other similar IM apps.
More than just a mere messaging app, WeChat is an all-inclusive app that offers everything from chat and call functions to news, local services, fun games and official accounts to follow. Like a mixture of social media platforms, it includes memories and moments (similar to instagram stories), interesting accounts to read and follow (à la Twitter) and all the standard functions of a messaging app such as text, photo and voice messages, location sharing and group chats.
