Unfortunately it the best way to communicate with people in China. Works fine most of the time. Has many good functions, similar to Facebook but less shareable. The worst problem is that often it tries to interrupt and override other apps while they're in use to the point where I've had to uninstall it several times due to it's annoying pinging. But if you set "do not disturb" and notification restrictions high it becomes tolerable and has good video calling capabilities.

Recently switched to a new phone and discovered that I have to backup/restore all of my messages manually, unlike every other app. Occasionally shows annoying "Server access failure" toast messages when you aren't using it. No web version. Can't sign up without having someone else scan some code. Requires storage access permission to start. Gigantic and bloated with useless features.

I love WeChat and use it all the time, both on my Android and my desktop. I have no problems using the desktop app, however I rarely receive notifications on my phone. I have missed several important messages because I didn't know I had received them. According to the settings I should be receiving all notifications, but nothing. Again, this is only for Android.
