There are many different apps to choose from. Some of them allow the users to post pictures, others allow the users to communicate by text or phone and others allow money to be exchanged.


However, WeChat is the only one that allows all of those. That is one reason why WeChat is so popular. WeChat was created in China which is why it is also popular. Many of the apps take off and become successful in the country where it originated.


Then if it is popular enough, it can move and become successful in other countries. WeChat became popular first in China and it is really only used in Asia. In the western world, very few people have WeChat unless they are communicating with people frequently in Asia.

The main reason for the success of WeChat in China is because it was created in China. Therefore, it would automatically have a huge appeal in China. Many people don’t realize that apps, devices and websites that have a huge appeal in one country are not popular or could even be unknown in other countries. That is because they were invented and promoted in one country.


Not everyone around the world could benefit from the app or they have their own apps to use. Many people don’t want to have to be educated on an app that does the same thing as the app that they already have unless they are in need of communicating with others in different countries.

Just like any other popular app, WeChat allows users to sign up for subscription accounts. This is done in order to allow people to use WeChat for different purposes. Some people may be using it for business purposes. They want to be able to advertise and promote their products for everyone to see especially their friends and families.


However, many others want to use WeChat in order to communicate with their families and not advertise, but they just want to have fun. It is simply used for their fun. However, subscription accounts can be opened in order to have more options. They want to have more functions. Sometimes, these accounts cost money, but it just depends upon what they are looking for.

Like other apps, WeChat was created in order to provide more services. If a user can have access to their social media accounts, message others and send and receive payments, then this is all inclusive. This means that the user will more likely use this app over another one because it provides more functions.


WeChat does a lot more things than many of the other apps. At first, Tencent, the company that created WeChat, had created another product. This product was known as QQ. It was simply an instant messaging system. That is all it did. They wanted something that did everything. That is how WeChat was created. Not many other products provide social media avenues and allow for receiving money.

WeChat is an app that has become very popular over time. It was first used and created in China. You can download WeChat off of the Internet for free. Then you can set up your account. You can post pictures on WeChat as well as communicate with others using this app. You can even call and speak to people internationally for free. A superapp is an app that has more technology than the other similar apps out there.


This means that it is more powerful and can allow for international communication through their language problems and cultural differences. WeChat is considered to be one of these superapps based on the many things that it can do internationally. Other apps cannot do the same.

The WeChat app provides a wide range of services to anyone who wants to set up a free account. Some of the things that WeChat can do is to message others. Other people who have a Wechat account can text others quickly.


They can also text others internationally with no cost to either party. They can also call each other and again it is free. Social media accounts can be accessed and it is used as a social media service where pictures can be posted.


Payments are probably the main difference between WeChat and other apps. WeChat allows users to send and receive money. However, it does not convert the money. Also, you can set up your bank account to WeChat so you can pull the money and send it to your bank account.

Sometimes, apps that are made in other countries never make it out of that country. This means that the app is only used in that one particular country. It hasn’t spread to other countries. The same can be said for WeChat in the United States.


Usually, only people who live in the United States and communicate with people in Asia consistently may use WeChat. Otherwise, the people in the United States seem to use apps that were created in the United States. They are more familiar with those apps.


Also, if there are issues, they would have to call and get an English speaker. There are some issues too. To access WeChat, you really need someone else to help you begin and create your own account.

Any app that takes off is worth a lot of money. This is because so many people are beginning to use the app and then advertisers or sponsors realize the value in the app. They want all of those millions of users to see their products that they advertise. The company Tencent is responsible for creating the WeChat and they are probably raking in the money as a result. It did probably take a lot of time to create this app and make sure it works.


However, now they are rolling in the dough with the amount that WeChat is worth. Since WeChat has over one hundred million followers, its value has increased over the years since it began in 2011. Now, its market value is at over eighty-three billion dollars.
