WeChat has become as famous as other mobile messaging platforms, especially since it offers even more new features and options. The Chinese mobile messenger app has more features, and it allows users to get to know more friends, while texting and calling for free. At this time, the application gathers more than 300 million users all over the world, and it is available free on iOS App Store, Google Play, Windows 8, Symbian and BlackBerry. The great news now is that we are also able to install WeChat for PC, and take advantage of the same features.
What makes it special is the fact that it gives us the possibility to use multiple new features such as Shake, Drift Bottle, Look Around and Moments. Here, I want to help you understand what Moments can do for you.
Update: Our staff has allready written a full tutorial on installing wechat on pc that will help you achieving the best experience with minimam knowledge.
Moments in WeChat is the place where you share your personal things with your friends and contacts. If you do not others to have access to your sharing, you can easily turn “Public Moments” setting to OFF. As you enter Moments, you will see the “Cover picture” that takes the top portion of the screen. Simply click on it and you are presented with the option to change the cover photo. Your name appears in the bottom of this cover photo, along with your profile graphic.
In the Moments window, you can see the camera icon at the top right corner which represents the place where you post. Choose a photo from your gallery or take one right away. Pick “Choose photo” and you will be able to upload up to 9 different photos in the same album. When done, click on + button if you want to create a new album.
In the same time, WeChat also grants you the possibility to modify photos later. In the Pre-posting windows, you will be able to do many other things such as:
- Click on the picture and delete the photo.
- Add your thoughts for each picture. For this, head over to the top text input area, “Say Something” and complete with every text you want.
- Sharing option for each photo.
- Control privacy and audience. Here you can also control which group or groups of your friends to share the album with, create new groups or edit existing ones.
Keep in mind that the Sharing Control Window can only be accessed when you post something, and you come to the Pre-posting Window. People you add to your “Do not Share List” cannot see your posts. However, if you do not want to share something with a certain person, all you have to do is to go over to the WeChat Setting, and put that person in “Hidden Friends” list.
Posting text can become quite demanding for some, especially since WeChat does not allow you to complete the Say Something field without sharing a photo. For this, all you have to do is to click and hold the camera icon. After a couple of seconds, you will see a text input box, where you can enter all you want to say.
As you can see, WeChat works and behaves in the same way as any other social network or mobile messenger app, which connects you with your friends, while helping you share your personal thoughts and happenings. Install WeChat now, and connect with all of your friends.
