WeChat is Now Available on Desktop

 

WeChatters are busy – sometimes you need to multi-task, send a message at work, or use a keyboard to type quicker and longer messages. That’s why three years ago, we launched Web WeChat, WeChat’s web-based client, and have been improving it ever since. So you can WeChat with your friends and family directly on your desktop.

But that’s not all – Did you know WeChat also has a native Mac app?

For all you Mac users with Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) or later, simply download WeChat for Mac in the App Store and scan the QR code to log in.
Along with being able to chat with WeChat friends and groups on your desktop, the Mac App makes it easy to transfer files from your mobile device to your desktop and vice versa with the “File Transfer” capability. Just drag and drop your photos, media and other files into the “File Transfer” folder. Or upload desktop files directly within a chat to send to friends.
