Avast Version 7 & WeChat Launching @ Zouk KL

5 July 2012
I was fortunate to be invited to APAC Venture Glitz & Glam Bloggers Party on 20th June 2012. More than 200 bloggers, celebrities, media members and partners were gathered at Zouk KL for the official launch of Avast Version 7 and WeChat social app.
An introduction about WeChat here if it sounds unfamiliar to you. WeChat is a free multimedia communication app originated from China and developed by Tencent, China’s largest internet service provider.
Among the features of WeChat are:
  • text messaging
  • hold to talk voice messaging
  • broadcast (one to many) messaging with extensive range of emoticon and emoji
  • photo/video sharing
  • location sharing
  • contact information exchange
  • “Look Around”, “Shake” and “Drift Bottle” function to discover new friends

Trying out Shake feature.
I call it the Fate feature because only people who shakes their phone
at the same time as you will  appear.

Trying to throw a bottle into the virtual sea

“Look around” will show WeChat users near you.
