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.
Avast Version 7 & WeChat Launch
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:
hold to talk voice messaging
broadcast (one to many) messaging with extensive range of emoticon and emoji
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.
