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 https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tencent.mm.

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
