Chinese chat app WeChat updates with new features on Windows 10

Windows 10 Mobile Camera App

The official WeChat app has updated to version 1.2.0 for Windows 10 PCs. No release notes have been published for the update but the logging in via a QR code has been noticeably improved and is a lot faster than before and the UI appears to have also been improved with quicker loading times. The previous PC update brought @ mentions in chats, message forwards, the ability to save messages as drafts, and a fix which prevented users from being logged out after closing the app.

While the WeChat app is a Universal Windows Platform app, the mobile version on Windows phones remains separate and has not been updated today.

WeChat is a communications app that is incredibly popular in mainland China. It’s very similar to WhatsApp, Line, and KakaoTalk. Do you use one (or all!) of these apps? Let us know which ones in the comments below.
