What is WhatsApp?What is WeChat?Lastly, your WeChat contact will never see your number! This might surprise you, but remember on WeChat you are not limited to signing up using your mobile number. You login name is enough!
2. Voice and Video Chat
This is a cool feature that the guys at WhatsApp either forgot or thought it wasnt cool. Instead of typing a message to your fiance saying œI love you, you can just say it and send. The effect is definitely not the same. Hearing someone and reading what they typed is not the same. I find this feature more useful when driving. There is no way I can type a message doing 120Km/hr on the freeway, so I just send a voice chat! And the other person replies with a voice chat too, so no need to read those little letters when on the steering! I know using the phone when driving is not recommended, but who doesnt?
