Latest version on Android 6.0 has some bugs. Pretty surprising for the reliability I've come to expect. Push notifications no longer work. I must open app to see if I received new messages. Huge issue please resolve. When keyboard switches to landscape view any text already typed up is lost. When sharing from Chrome to WeChat, phone thinks you haven't signed in.
I I stalled WeChat for my family. The calls are better quality than WhatsApp. The WeChat wallet also great. Think their quickpay and partnerships with other companies is great. In South Africa we have a app called snapnsave. U book items on promotion, buy it, upload the till slip with WeChat miniprogram for snapnsave and WeChat doubles Ure cash back. Can then transfer that money to WeChat wallet and use it to pay with quickpay, buy prepaid electricity, mobile airtime, or withdraw the cash at a Standard Bank ATM. Very clever. Have already saved a decent amount by just looking out for snapnsave promos on items I was going to buy anyway, or need to buy soon.
As of latest version *only*, app freezes when attempting to take a photo from within a chat. Otherwise this is the best chat/messaging/communication software out there. Can record <60s audio or video in chat, stickers can be customized (you can set any pic as a sticker), and "Moments" stay in chronological order. Can easily set up group chats, easily move from chat to Moments/album, and easily search chat history. Can add photos, pics, videos, mini-videos, can post links, xfer files (< about 7MB)
I will give more stars if fix the continuous refreshing each time you do something like checking somebody profile. Extremely anointing. Speed of operation is a key. If you have to wait 5 second or longer because it updated update the list. Can't that be conditional (user option). Google translate work only for messages. You can't highlight anything in profil you check and you can't translate that. That siple programming issues that need to be fix.
Log in verification is sucks. I use wechat to sell my things, and nobody recognise me. Then you want at least 2 friend to send me chat with that code number?? The old one verify is more useful! Just recognise the picture.. pleasee wechat dont make it more worse. Please give us the old wechat laaa!!!
Overall ok The only things that why login ask to verify scanning QR code or min 2 friends wechat sent code How to contact those friend which in wechat contact list!? Isn't tat make our account troublesome to login? The other thing i wanna suggest is if possible wechat make a system that the message was sent we can see if the other party was received and read like the whatsapp application If sent got 2 sign checkmark and if read the 2 sign was turn to blue. So we know tat the other party is online. Hope wechat consider this system
