In early 2015, the WeChat software for computers was born. It has helped users connect and communicate with each other much more effectively. But at the time, the app only supported Chinese. Many users want to try it, but they have to wait until the end of 2015. The later version of WeChat supports English, providing common chat features, the ability to take screenshots and send for friends immediately.
When chatting in groups, WeChat provides for the ability to mention by the @ icon (referring to other users in the group). It helps you inform the important information to your friends easily. Another useful feature is ‘Message Recall’ that allows users to cancel the sending of messages.
How to download, install, create an account and sign up for the WeChat
Step 1. You can download WeChat for all devices at the links above this article. After you have successfully installed it, you open the app and allow it to notify you so that you can receive information/messages from your friends on WeChat.
Step 2. You need to use your personal phone number as a WeChat account. Please enter the phone number and press Register. Click OK when it asks if you want to receive verification codes via SMS.
Step 3. Enter the confirmation code in your SMS. Then press Send.
At this point, you just need to enter the account name to log in the app. Besides, you can also click on the head icon to select your avatar or take your photo immediately.
Step 4. When you first log in WeChat, there will be no friend in your account. For that reason, you should sync it with your phone contacts and allow it to automatically search for friends.
WeChat is still improving and developing some new features. Users must make friends via personal phone numbers. But this is only a very small limitation of this great OTT application.
