If you think that WeChat is just a chatting application, you are wrong. WeChat started a chatting program and became an integrated social network that started in China and spread around the world with an audience of one billion users.
Here are the jobs you can take advantage of via WeChat:
- A chat and voice and video call application that is somewhat similar to the WhatsApp application, but with two additional features that are not usually available in other applications, such as searching for new friends in the area around you, and if you are bored, you can shake your phone and it will show you who shakes his phone now to talk to him.
- The possibility of paying and receiving money, but not in real time, as is the case with PayPal. Many people offer goods in their cases in order to market it.
- You can include statuses as with snapchat and you will decide who sees them as a friend.
- You can create a business account as you do with linkedin, the fact is that WeChat is already a market, with the indication that the official accounts must be verified from China.
- Are you shocked? Here’s more.. Inside WeChat there is a search engine similar to Google.
- Do you like games? you can play games in wechat too.
- If you are a software developer and need to customize a WeChat application, you can do so through the WeChat Mini Program, in fact there are hundreds of thousands of these applications currently and they work in java script language.
- WeChat has a feature to secure your account with a voice fingerprint which is not available in other applications.When you see all these features in one application, you will not be surprised by the size of the application, which exceeds 200MB.
Now back to the title, should I use the WeChat app?
Here is the quick answer: If you are in China or intend to travel to it, you are not indispensable!
However, if you are one who cares about its privacy a lot, this application, as it is currently with most social networking applications, records your activity in order to provide it to marketers as well as to the official Chinese authorities.
Noting that any application you want to use and your friends were not using, you will not need it at all.
From where I can get the app?
you can install it in your android from play store or iPhone from app store or you can use wechat in yourweb browser.
