WeChat for Business

WeChat (微信, Wēixìn) has received increasing attention from the major tech blogs. As a consumer focussed mobile app with voice messages at the core of it’s product, it is heralded as what Facebook should have done with mobile. Recently, I’ve begun to see examples of it being used for business. Not everything we do has to be real-time and with many small business spanning multiple time zones this is becoming increasingly evident. WeChat seems to have cracked voice messaging and I wouldn’t be surprised to see its unofficial use for business conversations increase over the coming months.
