Now is your chance to show your friends how much of a rockstar you are. But that’s not all. We’ve also improved the design, made it iOS 8 compatible (for our iOS users) and fixed some pesky bugs. So get on it and upgrade today!
New Feature: Sight
Sight messages are fast to record animated clips that run directly in your chats and Moments when connected to 3G or WIFI. There’s never been an easier way to show your friends what you’re up to on WeChat. Please note, the Sight feature is only accessible for those who have upgraded to WeChat 6.0, so get your friends onboard and let the fun begin!
Sight for Chats:
- Tap the ‘+’ button then Sight when in a chat to access the feature.
- Press and hold to record a new video message and release to send instantly.
Sight for Moments:
- Visit Moments, a streaming feed of you and your friends’ photos, links, and now video, then tap the camera icon in the upper right corner.
- Select a ‘Sight’ moment to take and post a new video.
Creating New Sights is Fast
Capturing that exciting moment with a Sight is incredibly easy. Just open WeChat, pull down the screen when you’re in the main WeChat chats tab and start recording. After creating your Sight, select where you want to send it and you’re done.
In addition WeChat 6.0 includes numerous visual enhancements, including a new tab bar for iOS, a new easy to access sticker button in chats for Android and full iOS 8 compatibility!
