There are so many apps available for download that allow you to connect with your friends and family while on the go.
Currently, there are so many of them that it’s easy to lose count, however, a number of them is able to grab our attention and millions of others, based on the numbers of their downloads. These apps are our tools in connecting with someone, no matter if that someone lives near or far from us. Most of the apps are very convenient and easy to use, but only some of them know how to add fun to the whole experience. Different networking apps have different features; some only have instant messaging; some have voice calls and videos, while others have voice messaging. What if you want all of these features in a single app? Here’s a little bit of good news for you; you can have all these features in one networking app; in fact, you can have more. This is what WeChat will give you. Before you say that WeChat is just another chatting app, take time to read and appreciate its features before making judgments.
WeChat is a chatting app that involves instant messaging, voice and video calls, voice messaging, and walkie talkie. Everything that you can do in different apps, you can do in WeChat. The interface of the app takes a little getting used to, but once you’ve become accustomed to it, everything else is easy. When you download the app, there’s no need for manually saving the contact details of your friends, WeChat will do that for you. One of the things I like about WeChat, though, is the fact that you have the option to control who can add you to their list. In other apps, you can interact with your friends provided they have the same app installed in their device. With Wechat, under the privacy tab, you can enable the option “Friend Confirmation”. This means that before they can send you a message, your friends will have to request to add you and you have the option to confirm them or not.
Few Glitches That Need to Be Fixed
While WeChat takes texting and calling to a higher level, there are a few glitches that I find very inconvenient. WeChat does not have quick response like other instant messaging apps do. Also, the text bubbles are too big so that only a couple of messages can be seen on the screen when the keyboard is up, which of course should always be up considering you’re exchanging conversations with someone most of the time. If you are looking for the convenience of instant messaging, WeChat is not the best choice, unless they were able to fix these glitches. On the other hand, the voice and video calls have great quality. Perhaps, for now, you can use two apps that will suit up for your instant messaging needs and voice or video calling needs. If, in the future, one app is able to give you the best quality of both features, then it will be easy to switch to a different app.
