With the support of WeChat, the Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF HK) introduces a new payment channel to support world emergency relief work via WeChat’s advanced Payment Platform. This innovative partnership will enable donors to make contributions to emergency relief efforts on their smartphones simply and efficiently.
The new WeChat donation function supports UNICEF’s recent initiatives, such as the Cyclone Pam situation in Vanuatu, the ongoing Syria crisis and the recent Nepal Earthquake. By improving fundraising efficiency, WeChat and UNICEF are empowering millennials to become more involved in relief work and to give back to the global community.
“Social media is now indispensable for youth. The introduction of WeChat Payment will help cultivate support for UNICEF HK from youngsters and provide a more convenient and effective channel for public donations, supporting UNICEF’s humanitarian relief work,” said Mr. David Fong, Chairman of the Fundraising Committee of UNICEF HK.

Have you ever forgotten a password and been locked out of your account?
With the endless list of apps and online accounts today, all of which require a password for security and identification measures, it’s no wonder we sometimes forget that magic password.
To make life easier for all our WeChatters out there, we would like to introduce Voiceprint – a voice recognition system that can be used to log in to your WeChat account, available on Android and iOS. Just like your fingerprint, your voice is unique and once you’ve enabled this cool feature, our smart systems can recognize your specific voice and intonations to verify your identity.

In our busy lives, we don’t always get to spend enough quality time with our families, but it doesn’t mean we can’t find ways to share the everyday moments with our loved ones, letting them know we’re thinking of them.
Whether you’re living in the same city or oceans apart, it’s fun and easy to stay in touch with your family through WeChat. With all the different features, there are multiple ways to show your love, via stickers, Sight, group chat (this one’s especially useful for all you WeChatters who have a lot of siblings) and more.
After the recent Mother’s Day holiday, we were inspired to create a sticker set that showcases the relationship between a mother and her child. So today, we are re-introducing your favorite mother-son duo, Mama and BB Pau, the cute xiao long bao (soup dumpling) stickers.
