WeChat - 850+ Million People's Choice for Text & Audio Communication

Instant messaging (IM) service WeChat was developed by Tencent and released in 2011. The Chinese developed app, whose localized name translates to "micro message," is the most popular IM app in the world. WeChat serves over 850 million active users, the majority of whom are within China. Within WeChat, you can communicate in many ways with friends and other WeChat users. The most common use of WeChat is some form of instant messaging. Whether it's text message, voice message, or stickers, you can keep in touch in these ways, and more. WeChat also includes a walkie talkie mode, which can add an extra element of fun with friends. WeChat Pay is another big feature within the app, allowing you to pay for items from vendors using your digital wallet. Your WeChat Pay account can be topped up by accepting charges to your added debit card, or by receiving money from other WeChat Pay users. Linked credit cards can only pay to vendors, and do not allow you to top up your balance. Services vary between countries and cities on WeChat. Some options include ordering food, hailing a taxi, or paying utilities. These options require the vendors to develop a 'mini-app' for the app, which adds this feature for WeChat users to enjoy. WeChat is completely free to use, with no subscription fees. You can chat, call, send stickers, and pay for services in one convenient app. You can also play competitive games with your friends in-between times. WeChat also has a desktop app available for Windows and Mac.
