To ring in the New Year, we’ve launched WeChat Out, a new VOIP feature designed by WeChat to help users call mobile and landlines around the globe at low rates. WeChat Out is only available for users outside of Mainland China. Currently, the feature is live in the United States, Hong Kong and India, and will cover more countries and regions in the near future.
WeChat Out not only provides excellent call quality, but also offers super-low calling rates. With WeChat Out, you can call at any time and anywhere.
As our New Year gift to you, we have given you $0.99 USD in calling fees, providing up to 100 minutes of free calls for most numbers around the globe (See Calling Rates in FAQ). Update your version of WeChat and enjoy calling now.
A few tips for using WeChat Out:
1. Tap the “+” icon on the top right of the main screen and select WeChat Out
2. Select the mobile contact you’d like to call or dial the number in the dial pad to make a call
3. Top-up your balance or check top-up and calling history in the Account page
4. View the WeChat Out FAQ in “Me” > “Settings” > “Help & Feedback” > and send your feedback to us at the bottom of the Account page
Happy New Year!
UPDATED JAN.11, 2016: Every minute is cherished. Since its launch, WeChat Out has become wildly popular. We have therefore decided to give away more minutes at the first weekend after the New Year, so you may stay in touch with your friends and loved ones.
