WeChat: Promoting Digital Innovations and Human Connections

There's no denying anymore that technology has invaded peoples' lives especially in parts of the world where people reach for their mobile gadgets first upon waking up in the morning. These days, breakfast is taken with a dose of social media, communication is done via voice messages or emails instead of snail mails, and milestones or life events are no longer limited to browsing photo albums at home because they can already be shared to the world.

These days, with more digital love abounding, there also comes a yearning for technological advances to link people back to organic interactions. Mobile social app WeChat promotes human connections by making way for stimulating conversations. Here are 5 benefits of integrating this digital innovation to one's lifestyle. 

1. Talk digitally the same way you do in person. You no longer need to drive very far or ride a plane just to catch up with friends and family. Use WeChat's video call function that works over WiFi or 3G networks or chat up a storm using the group messaging feature that can accommodate up to 40 people in your list. Not too fond of typing? Press the "Hold to Talk" button instead to record and send your message in a jiffy.

2. Expand your circle of friends. It used to be that making friends in new places would begin with small talk. Now, WeChat makes this quicker with the "People Nearby" feature that points you to other WeChat users in the area and lets you start conversations with them instantly. Meanwhile, there's the "Shake" feature wherein you get connected to anyone in the world who is also literally shaking their phones at the same time.  

3. Share your moments. Just like a public album, WeChat has a feature that allows users to show videos, photos, videos, recordings, and comments in one platform called "Moments". There, you can even customize your files using filters and personalized emoticons.

4. Quickly shift platforms. Although going mobile makes connecting with other people easier and more fun, it gets harder when you have to change gadgets or handle multiple screens. Shift seamlessly with the PC version where you can log in and continue conversations. Plus point: you can access it with one QR code scan generated by so there'll be no need to download the software! This app also supports social network integration that allows users to link WeChat to their Facebook profiles.

5. Backup and data protection. There's no need to worry about corrupted files or forgotten conversations in We Chat. It protects data with on-demand backup and retrieval to and from its cloud-based server.

As more and more people use their mobile gadgets in their daily activities, WeChat ensures its more than 100 million users of an international community that has a clean, simple, and multi sensory platform that covers all possible areas of human communication. 

WeChat is available on iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows, Nokia, and Symbian platforms. Experience WeChat for yourself by scanning the QR code above or by visiting
