WeChat is a popular free messaging service, providing you with a convenient solution for sending and receiving mobile messages even while you're at a computer.
Message for free
WeChat is multi-functional, going beyond file sharing and messaging to give you the power of sending your latest selfies and pictures.
WeChat brings you a cost-effective messaging service. You'll never need to pay airtime for messages as long as you sign up for an account using your mobile phone number.
In one quick sync you can see who's already using it from your contacts. WeChat is excellent for sending files between friends and work groups but doesn't support video or audio files.
WeChat is available on PC as well, giving further use to the file sharing option as you're able to share any file type. On PC it looks and feels the same as the mobile version, meaning you don't get confused with how to use it. To use the service on PC, you need to have the mobile app accompanying it.
Syncing mobile and computer applications is easy. The computer version will display a QR code that you need to scan on to your mobile device. But once synced you'll be able to connect with the contacts available on your phone.
WeChat is multi-functional, going beyond file sharing and messaging to give you the power of sending your latest selfies and pictures or expressing yourself with emojis.
If you don't have the space to install the desktop version or if you're using a public PC, you can simply use a browser client and log in.
Where can you run this program?
WeChat is available for all mobile devices that operate on Android or iOS but also has desktop versions for Windows and Mac. There's also a browser-based client available.
Is there a better alternative?
When it comes to free messaging services, there are alternatives such as Line and WhatsApp, but you need to find out which one your contacts are using.
WeChat is a great app for messaging and file sharing, especially since it can be synced with a desktop version of itself, letting you share entire photo albums in one compressed folder.
