Love in the Time of WeChat

March 02, 2014

We are through with the love month couple of days ago and here I am still talking about Love. But really who could blame me when everything else around speaks of the wondrous things about Love? Especially in this day and age of technology when communicating with our loved ones is made easier. Just like the services that WeChat offers to its users. 

While I am a firm believer of the fact that technological advances like WeChat are not meant to replace human communication but to merely enhance it, I am aware of the advantages it brought to us. 

Through this world’s most searched social mobile application, people can communicate to each other even if one is at the far side of the world while the other is at the other.

Undoubtedly, this notable feature of technology is being relied upon especially those who are in a relationship and wants to be constantly connected with their significant others while doing their respective responsibilities in life. One good example is WeChat endorsers and real life newly married couple, Iya Villania and Drew Arellano.

WeChat, Making It Easier To Communicate With People You Love

WeChat shows us some reasons how they can make user experiences more human by giving us samples how the two mentioned celebrities keep connected to each other through WeChat, even if they are not always together, physically. And truth be told, I know most of us WeChat users can relate.

1.Both can talk digitally the same way they do personally.

WeChat lets its user reach people wherever they are through a video call function that works over WiFi or 3G networks. Group messaging feature on the other hand lets them host chat rooms with up to 100 users on their list. Shifting from typing messages to talking by pressing the “Hold to Talk” button is also possible especially when they want to record and send message in an instant.

2. Both can bring on and capture the good times.

Through a WeChat feature called “Moments” which is comparable to a public album, WeChat users can share photos, videos, recordings, and comments to the world. While Iya and Drew can show to their fans their precious moments captured through WeChat, we on the otherhand can show ours to people in our network list.

3. Both can escape to fantasy worlds.

WeChat can keep its user entertained beyond its social networking and location-based functions through its newly released Game Center (WeChat version 5.1). Games such as GunzDash, Pencil Pilot, 2Day’s Match and Craz3 Match are some of the games Iya and Drew, and basically any WeChat users can enjoy.

4. Both can continue growing their circles.

As celebrities, WeChat serves as a useful platform for both Iya and Drew to connect with their fans. For non-celebrities like us however, WeChat can be a great means to expand our network and meet people who share the same passion with us. (Follow Iya and Drew on WeChat via their IDs: @IyaOfficial and @DrewOfficial.)

5. Both can backup their moments.

WeChat protects its users’data by on-demand data backup and retrieval to/from its cloud based server. So just like Iya and Drew, WeChat users need not worry about corrupted files and forgotten conversation. WeChat definitely got our back on that league.
