WeChat : A worthy competitor to WhatsApp


The success of WhatsApp has inspired a lot of similar messaging apps both on iPhone and Android platforms.

Leading the list of WhatsApp competitors is Wechat , an internet based messaging service by Tencent.


WeChat is free and is available on Google Play Store at

The review was done on August 26 2013 and on Android version 5.0.


Live Chat

 The Live Chat feature allows a user to chat with friends in a group. It is just as talking on a conference call.

The only problem is that only one person can talk at a time in Live Chat.

QR code powered Group Chat


Whats a brillant feature in WeChat is the ability to allow other users to join a particular group using QR code.

You just need to send a QR code to a wechat user and using it he can join any group.

Free Video Call


 The Video Call interface is intuitive. The quality however is not as good as Skype.

However, if a messaging app allows you to this is a big plus.

The Shake Feature

The Shake feature helps you to chat with unknown people.

Moments: A social networking feature in Wechat.


WeChat is a refreshing break from WhatsApp. However people might not use it as most of their friends are on WhatsApp.

Ratings: 4.5 / 5
