Designed for the re-invented and re-engineered BlackBerry 10 OS platform, the free WeChat for BlackBerry 10 integrates with BlackBerry Hub providing a seamless user experience. The app allows users to text each other, swap voice messages with its "Hold to Talk" feature, and share images. Included in WeChat for BlackBerry 10 are animated emoticons and the location-based service to meet and find new friends. It also comes with comprehensive privacy setting functions, enabling users to adjust their security levels as needed.

WeChat for BlackBerry 10 is now available on the BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry Q10 and BlackBerry Q5 smartphones and can be downloaded for free on BlackBerry World.

Following the launch of WeChat 5.0 for iOS, WeChat 5.0 for Android is also now available on Google Play.

WeChat 5.0 offers new features including:-

  • Sticker Shop which is supported by online payment allows users to download and pay for stickers via the platform.
  • ‘Hold Together’

WeChat has also made it easier to add friends with their upgraded ‘Adding Contacts’ function, as well as made communicating with them simpler with a refined ‘Quick Entry’ for the group chat function.
