WeChat allows users to make face-to-face video calls by simply pressing “+” and selecting the “video call” icon under the chat window. This will use all your cell phone’s contacts.
This is also known as free Internet phone calling. Simply pick your contact from your phone’s contact list and start talking. You can also send text chats as well.
WeChat allows for mobile transactions via TenPay (a version of PayPal). WeChat can let brands create m-commerce stores or send money to other members. You can even buy goods from vending machines via WeChat on your phone.
WeChat comes with a standard QR Code reader, allowing the app to instantly work with QR codes and better integrate with the message, promotion or information that is attached to it. Many business cards in China use a QR code, which is then automatically scanned into your WeChat App.
WeChat offers games directly inside the app itself. Think of an app store for games accessible within WeChat. The game center has several titles for free to download and play. You can play the games solo or even with the your WeChat friends.
Moments allow you to mini-blog and post thoughts and images to your friends. These posts are then automatically updated to your circle of friends.
WeChat has several features that allow you to search via your geo-location for WeChat friends or other members who are nearby. ‘Shake’ allows you to look for other members around you (just shake the phone when you are ready).
Besides a huge number of emoji collections that WeChat provides for free, users can also add their own emoticons by simply downloading from a website, or creating their own from photo albums.
