Wechat aka Weixin is a messaging app that supports social networking, thereby making it easy for users to meet new friends online while also serving as a platform where friends can communicate with text messaging, hold-to-talk voice messaging, broadcast (one-to-many) messaging, photo/video sharing.
It features location-based social plug-ins (“Shake”, “Look Around”, and “Drift Bottle”) which make it easy to discover and connect with local and international WeChat users. WeChat also features “Recommended Friends”.
You can shake your phone to find people shaking their phones as well. Therafter, you can “send greeting” to “people found”. “Look Around” lets you find people using WeChat nearby with Look Around enabled on their Wechat app. By throwing the Wechat “drift bottle“, you can send out your voice or text message, then wait to see you will pick up your bottle and reply.
If you want to connect with your friends, you can search for them via their WeChat IDs or their phone numbers directly, or you can link your phone address book to let WeChat find your friends for you.
