“Invite Friends, Get Free Calls” is simple – the more you give, the more you get.
In January, we launched “WeChat Out,” a breakthrough VOIP feature allowing users to make low-rate calls to mobile phones and landlines around the globe via WeChat.
After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from our initial rollout in the United States, India, and Hong Kong, we are excited to announce the official launch of the feature in Thailand, Laos, Macau and Italy. This brings the total countries and regions where WeChat Out is available to seven.
If you are in one of the countries WeChat Out is now available, be sure to update to the latest version and start calling. WeChat will provide free call credit and discounts for you!
What is “WeChat Out”?
“WeChat Out” is a new feature in WeChat that enables calls to landline or mobile phones. Using WeChat Out, users can easily make affordable and high-quality calls from anywhere in the world to anywhere else.
WeChat Out is easy-to-use. Just update to the latest version of the app and navigate to the “Discover” screen to find the new WeChat Out feature.
