WeChat is a cross-platform voice chatting app with photo sharing which allows one to chat to friends and find people around through location-based services. It is available for iOS, Android, Symbian and Windows Phone platforms.
The latest version, 3.1, has just hit marketplace, and brings:
- Enhance your chats with a huge selection of animated emoticons
- Play a fun game Rock-Paper-Scissors in your chats
- New QR Name Card
The service uses Facebook Connect, so does not require a completely new profile and friends list, and allows both one-on-one and group chats with voice messages, texts, pictures. You can also use the location-based services to find users in your area. The app even features an Instagram-like ability to take images, add filters and share them.
WeChat is free and can be found in Marketplace here.
