“I moved to China to 6 months ago for work. The WeChat app was something I needed to have in order to find the great position I have now. It allows me to seamlessly communicate with friends and family back home, as well as new friends and colleagues here in China. Messaging, audio, and video chat are almost always clear with little issue, even when communicating halfway across the world. WeChat pay has made my life virtually cashless as I am able to simply pay using the app everywhere. I have also made many friends through sharing WeChat QR codes on the street and being added to groups. I would probably not have had as easy of a transition to working in China without the app and furthermore I wouldn’t have had half as much fun.”
