The Future of Chatting is Here - WeChat!

In the past, Mommy's chatting tool comes in the form of Yahoo Mesenger. Shortly after the initial 'match-making' between Papa and Mommy via Papa's mum,  we went through the getting-to-know-you-better stage via Yahoo Messenger all done from the computer. That was 8 years ago. Fast forward to 6 years later, Mommy ventured into chatting via Facebook, but that's still very much done through the computer. But now, just recently, Mommy discovered WeChat! WeChat is an app used in smartphones to connect friends across various platforms. What's striking about WeChat is that it allows chat in both text and voice forms and the best part of all is that it's FREE for download with absolutely no advertisements! ^_^



The WeChat app is useable in many platforms such as Android, Windows, iPhone, iOS and Symbian. The app has got a clear interface and is user-friendly. Mommy didn't have to take too long to get comfortable in using it, considering Mommy is not that tech-savvy a person....hehehe!

What this app is in store for Mommy is that since it supports multiple language and has the group chat function, Mommy foresees this to be a good tool to stay connected with Mommy's students in the university. Imagine certain class announcements that has to go impromptu but it's not yet the lecture day? Well, this tool definitely solves the problem to make sure Mommy's students are up-to-date about what Mommy wants to convey to them. The best part of it all is that it is free to use with unlimited texting and voice messaging with photo and video exchange function!

Otherwise, for leisure, if Mommy wants to get to know more new people,  there's this Shake function whereby you merely shake your phone to make new friends! See who happen to also be shaking their phones and voila! Those who respond to the shake can connect and make friends!

Does this get you interested now? Why wait!? Go check out WeChat Malaysia's Facebook page here for more tips on how you can maximize your use of this app in your social, working and even family circles! By the way, you can see photos of the recent launch of WeChat at Velvet of Zouk in June 2012 in the Facebook page. Happy chatting! ^_^



*Wink! Wink* If Juan Or sees this iconic speech bubbles, he is sure to say the bigger green one is Mommy and the smaller white one is him! His quote: "Mama speech bubble, Juan Or speech bubble" ^_^
