Take a Break with Coca-Cola® on WeChat

Here at WeChat, we’re all about sharing the happiness – just like Coca-Cola®! That’s why Coca-Cola® is encouraging WeChatters in Hong Kong to sit back, relax, and take a break with their new official account.


Fun Mini-Games & Interactions


From now until May 19, Coca-Cola® will be pushing messages to their official account followers at 3:15pm on a few random days per week. By answering the fun and easy questions directly in their official account and participating in the mini-games, participants will have a chance to receive 7-Eleven offers with the correct answers.

Sticker Story – Meet WeChat’s Own Basketball Team “The Ballers”


With the NBA Playoffs in full swing, we’ve decided to launch a new set of stickers featuring “The Ballers.” The Ballers are the dream basketball team – they are determined, hardworking and focused. And while they’re serious about playing big, they also know how to have some fun.

So let’s meet our court-side heroes – AJ, Chris, Nick and Harry. They’re great friends both on and off the court and have amazing team chemistry. When they’re not competing against other teams, they can be found working out and ballin’ against each other.

Tech Tip – How to Use Sight on WeChat

Some moments in life are better told through video. And now you can capture and share them all in six-second clips with WeChat’s Sight feature. Here’s a handy guide to help.


Sight Shooting is Simple

You can access Sight with a swift pull-down of the main chat screen. Once the eye icon appears, you’ll be able to start recording your Sights. Simply press and hold the green video button to record, and release to send. You can then choose to share your video with friends through Moments, private chats, group chats, or just save it as a draft for later.


Pro-tip: if you double tap when shooting a Sight, you can zoom in and out.


Save Sights for Later

There will be times when you won’t want to publish your Sight right away. Luckily, Sights taken from the main screen can be saved in your drafts for up to 14 days. Just select the option “Save to Draft” after recording.


To publish a saved Sight to Moments:

  1. Click Discover > Moments
  2. Tap the camera icon on the upper right hand corner
  3. Select “Sight”
  4. Choose from Sights
