I quite like this app. Our entire team are on-the-go and use it to keep in touch with each other and all our clients. It has a lot of very useful features; eg, file transfer. It's not bloatware and takes up very little process power when running in the background. It can also be used in conjunction with any other device you are using. Yes, the CCP is monitoring and collecting data. But the same can be said for any government in the world. I also noticed that many airports in Europe now use WeChat payment systems as well.

Ah, WeChat from Tencent. Use it with the assurance that the Chinese government is watching.

Someone at work recommended this to me. I love it! The phone version has many more features, please bring these features to your desktop versions also!

Keep up the good work!

It's a bit confusing how you create an account using the Mac app. You guys might consider tweaking the flow within the app so people who do not have user accounts can create one within the app and it's not obvious how you do this.
