WeChat offers its unique free voice message called “hold to talk” and free video call features. It is also engaging excellent group chat experience with free voice message, animated and custom emoticon and Emojis art, customizable backgrounds, and a Rock-Paper-Scissors mini-game.
The app also encourages creative expression by allowing users to apply artistic filters to their photos, create a personal photo journal, and share photos with friends. WeChat allows users to seamlessly connect with their social circles from phone contacts and Facebook.
People can also use location-based social (LBS) features to discover other members of the WeChat community. These features include ‘Shake’, ‘Look Around’ and ‘Drift Bottle’.
