WeChat is an app for instant messaging free that, after highlight a lot in front of the rest of other apps in China, it is launched to the complete world, so we can all take advantage of it.
As in WhatsApp Messenger and Line, now, their main competence is this program,with which we will be able to chat for free
with all your contacts through text messages and voice, create chat groups
, send images and files of audio and video, your localization, and fun smileys,a lot aof them animated and similar to the famous stickers
As in WhatsApp, to configurate your account in this program, you will just need to introduce a phone number and the code will arrive to you with an SMS. Then, the app gets fully integrated with your contact list
to show you a list of your friends in this application. The main disadvanteg of this app and the only reason by which WhatsApp has stil the hegemony in this field is that is more or less functional according to how many of your contacts are in te app. In this sense, it seems that the ones of WeChat do not want to leave anything at random and, because of that, we can see frequently its advertising in TV with nothing more or less that Leo Messi
as a main character.
But this software, also, includes several functions with added value that will be the perfect for people to join this comunity. To start with, besides chat and free messages, you will also be able to enjoy free videocalls
, and it also has a system of push-to-talk
(PPT), that makes it to be a really fun walkie-talkie
, similar to the ones that are offered by apps like Zello Walkie Talkie. It is also very interesting the possibility to publish your state and pictures in a kind of wall
similar to the one we have in Facebook, in which you will be able to see and coment all what your contacts publish.
Other options that make this program different from its competitors are the Shake
, See Around
and Message in a Bottle
, which even when they are not the same, they remind us of some characteristics of the chat service and messages of SpotBros. The option Shake
, it is used to add contacts in your list without having to give them a phone number. Simply, you both will have to activate the option and "shake" the mobile at the same time to exchange your contact data
. The app will show you a list of with all the users that are shaking the mobile at the same time as you and it will also tell you their position so you can add someone who you know but also someone at random, placed at some miles distance.
The option of Look Around
is used to find contacts of your list in this application, whose localization
to yours. And, finally, Message in a Bottle
is a simil of text or voice of what apps like Rando
make with the pictures. It consist of sending text or voice messages in the air, no matter who the receiver is, so another user of WeChat, in any part of the world, opens it. In the same way, you can open "messages in a bottle" sent by radom users
WeChat includes also a lot of interesting options, like the one to be able to add a contact or to invite someone to a group through a QR code
, which can be scaned from the same app; the option to record the messages history
to check it withut connection or making a security copy
to have it in the future. If you are looking for a good alternative to apps of instant messaging, which between many other options, you can have a free chat or free videocalls and a push to talk service to make chats of voice to the walkie talkie style, download for free this program
