6 Ways to Simplify Your Life with WeChat

6-Tips-To-Simplify-Your-Life-With-WeChatSummer is almost over, which means it’s time to kick things into high gear. With work, school and a social life to juggle, sometimes we all need a little help. Lucky thing you have WeChat to make your life a whole lot easier. Here’s how:


1. Make group chat your best friend

Why have 25 separate chats when you can just form one group chat and communicate with everyone simultaneously? Think about it – one chat to coordinate everything from deciding what flick to see, to sending directions to the theater. You can even avoid those long work email chains!


2. Simplify your chat messages

Next time you’re spending hours drafting a long text message, think about sending a WeChat voice message instead.  You just press and hold the “Hold to Talk” button to record and release to send. Or you can send an animated sticker that perfectly sums up your emotion with one tap.


3. QR codes = boss business cards

You know the routine. Go to a meeting, exchange business cards, enter contact information into phone, then email to follow up.  With WeChat, you can consolidate this into two easy steps. Each WeChatter has a personalized QR code and scanner.  Just scan each other’s QR code after your meeting to add them as a contact then start chatting instantly!
