TechJunkie's mailbox is full of WeChat questions from readers who have installed the app and tried to solve it. This page will respond to some of the most popular ones, like ‘Can you tell if someone is online on WeChat?’ Does WeChat notify when a message is read? Did I meet people on WeChat? "WeChat made the video? ‘
WeChat is an amazing little app. It covers continents, but is used in very different ways depending on where you live. If you are in China, WeChat is a complete ecosystem that includes chat, social media, web search, payment gateways, e-commerce, and more. Use it in the west and especially on social media and chat apps. Wherever you use it, you are among a billion people who seem to use WeChat regularly.
I think that is why it has become a popular topic of discussion here. So, let's answer the question.
Can you tell if someone is online on WeChat?
The answer is very short, no. You can't find out if someone is online on WeChat. Notification is not something WeChat wants to participate in and online status is just one of them. There are no warnings or bookmarks to indicate if someone is online on WeChat.
If you want to know if someone is there, you should ask them.
Does WeChat notify when the message is read?
Which leads well to the next question. Does WeChat notify when the message is read? Again, the answer is no. WeChat also wants nothing to do with this notification. It is seen on other social networks that use notifications and do not like the effect it has on users.
People are emphasizing read notification when an answer came a long time ago. Anxiety whether you're saying something wrong or having to reply to a message quickly for fear that the original sender will be upset if you don't. All this is negative on social networks and WeChat wants to go a different way. This blog post on WeChat explains your thinking.
Is WeChat really a spy for the Chinese government?
This is a very controversial topic, but it is a question I often ask about WeChat. It is unfortunate that we suspect anything that comes out of China. It depends primarily on our own government and its suspicion of the nation. It also depends on China, which seems to do everything possible to justify the suspicion, but that is a debate for another day.
Is there real evidence that WeChat is spying on users? No Is there speculation that WeChat is spying on users? If a lot is closed here, here, here Y here. Everyone is a year or older, but remains relevant until something changes. At least for now, you need to decide if you feel safe using this app.
How do you find people on WeChat?
As a social network, WeChat offers several ways to find people who use the application. After installing it on your phone, you will be asked to allow it to verify your phone contacts. This will search for them and see if any of them also uses WeChat and connects you to them.
You can also use Wechat ID Discover someone's WeChat ID, press Add contact and enter ID them to make friends with them in the app. You can also use your QR code that works like Snapchat.
There is also a Search feature where you can find anyone near your location who also uses WeChat. Select the Discover tab from the app, select Nearby People and see who is connected around you.
Does WeChat make videos?
WeChat mimics many features of other networks and has recently introduced the ability to record short 20 second videos. This is not TikTok, but the ability to add videos to your social posts can be interesting or useful depending on your goals.
If you swipe down on the main WeChat window, you should open the camera app. Press and hold the camera icon to record your video. Then you can save and share as needed.
These are some of the most popular WeChat questions we ask at TechJunkie. I will try to respond faster and continue until we have answered everything, so send them if you have them!
