Wechat developer


WeChat is a mobile text and voice messaging communication service developed by Tencent in China, first released in January 2011. The app is available on Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone platforms.

WeChat has over 1 billion monthly active user and 10 million+ official accounts by the end of 2018. This makes it one of the most popular social apps in the world, and a valid competitor to WhatsApp and Viber. WeChat has multiple features including video chat, voice calling, SMS, games, QR code scanning and so much more.

WeChat’s reach and influence is unrivaled in China’s online space as it touches everything from consumers communicating with their nearest and dearest, to sharing their most special moments, to buying everything from cinema tickets to taxi rides.

QPSoftware is a top WeChat agency located in Shanghai offering design and development of WeChat Mini Programs, WeChat Stores and WeChat Web apps.



WeChat offers the best of Facebook and WhatsApp into one app, but there’s a lot more to it.  Besides messaging, WeChat also offers video calling, voice calling, Emoticons/stickers, QR coding and capture, gaming, geolocation searching, blog posts, brand channels and last but not least: mobile commerce

Indeed, WeChat stands heads above the others for its one standout feature alone – mobile commerce. WeChat has a full-blown mobile commerce platform built inside using the Ecommerce platform, TenPay (a Chinese version of PayPal). With TenPay, users have to sync a real world bank account to add credits and conduct transactions via the app. WeChat has been used for mobile commerce (or Mcommerce) by brands, celebrities and WeChat themselves. WeChat currently completed a successful Chinese New Year’s Red Envelope program, where users of WeChat could send red envelopes (money) to each other’s accounts. Over 40 million envelopes were sent during the program with hundreds of millions of dollars sent in app transactions.

What is WeChat?

WeChat is a Chinese multi-purpose messaging, social media, and mobile payment app developed by Tencent. It was first released in 2011 and has since become one of the most popular messaging apps in China and around the world.

As of 2022, WeChat has over 1.3 billion monthly active users, making it one of the most widely used messaging apps in the world. It is particularly popular in China, where it is estimated that more than 90% of the population uses WeChat.

WeChat allows users to send text messages, make voice and video calls, and share images and other media with friends and family. It also includes a wide range of features, such as the ability to follow official accounts and subscribe to news feeds, use Mini Programs (small apps that run within WeChat), and make in-app purchases.

Over the years, WeChat has evolved from a simple messaging app to a comprehensive platform for communication and commerce. It is used by millions of people for personal and business communication, as well as for accessing a wide range of services, such as booking a taxi or ordering food.

In addition to its messaging and social media features, WeChat has also become a popular platform for digital marketing and customer service. Many businesses use WeChat to connect with their customers and offer support through the app's customer service features.
