WeChat is one of the biggest chatting services. It is similar to WhatsApp, Telegram and other text messaging service but is in some parts of the world even more ppular than WhatsApp and Co. However, WeChat was one of the reason on which the app gap thing for Windows grounded. It is a popular service which is offering an app for all major platforms except for Windows.
This semms to change since there appeared an official app for the app today in the Windows app store. Twitter user WalkingCat tweeted a screenshot of the app together with a download link today. Yes that’s right there is even a download link where you can find the app.

Unfortunately the app doesn’t seem to be quite ready for public use yet. On the one hand it has not been officially released yet which is one indicator, on the other and the app crashes if you are trying to pair it with your phone. Like WhatsApp, WeChat is not synchronizing messages from an online server but rather from your phone. That needs you to pair your phone with the app so that it can display your messages and let you answer to those.
While pairing is working just like with WhatsApp, by scanning a QR Code, the app is currently crashing if you are trying to do that. Though you can head over to the app with the download link below and get a first glance at what the app will be capable of. Since the app makes a very feature complete impression it should not take too long anymore until the app will be officially available in the Windows app store.
Of course we will keep you updated on this so stay tuned for more news on the WeChat app for Windows and feel free to drop us a comment below with your thoughts on this story.
