WeChat Portable, chat with your friends instantly via voice messages, texts, or images!
"WeChat offers more functionality than Whats App and Viber and is free of charge. ... Other messaging apps like WhatsApp and Viber offer similar core communications functionality.... However, WeChat offers free voice and video calls, moments and games which WhatsApp doesn’t. ... So basically WeChat combines the best of Whatsapp with the best of Skype!" —jeff_elephant/zobia22, (‎14-08-2014 16:25)
"Its very good platform to connect someone." —M L Dey, (September 14, 2014)
