WeChat is a popular app that does a great job of combining features from chatting and social media apps. Therefore, people can use WeChat in order to get in touch with their friends from all over the world. Another great thing that makes WeChat stand out when compared to similar apps is the constant stream of updates that it benefits from. The developers who are in charge of WeChat are always launching new updates that introduce improvements and a brand-new one has just arrived.
WeChat 7.0.12 Update
