Home » Download WeChat UWP, Tencent’s latest Windows 10 app

Tencent developers are now adding another app to the growing line of WeChat for Windows 10 apps called WeChat UWP for Windows 10, the same app that was discontinued in favor of the ported Win32 app. Now, the WeChat UWP app for Windows 10 is available on the Microsoft Store for download.

So far, Tencent has launched three WeChat apps for Windows. The first one was the proper Windows 10 app for PC, another was the Win32 app, and the last one is WeChat for Windows Phone.

WeChat UWP features

The new app is called WeChat UWP, distinct from WeChat, WeChat for Windows and WeChat for Windows 10. The app’s design is a bit different from the main WeChat app because it lacks the hamburger menu initially placed on the bottom to the right, while the app’s functionality is similar to the WeChat app.

  • With WeChat UWP, you can send photos, text, file messages and playback audio messages in the chat.
  • You can View sight, animated stickers, and also real-time location shared by your friends.
  • You also have the ability to search articles from Official Accounts.
  • The app is compatible with Windows 10 Mobile, PC, and HoloLens as well.

Despite the fact the app is called WeChat UWP, it is currently only available for Windows 10 PCs on the Windows Store. But, considering that WeChat claims the app is compatible with Windows 10 Mobile, the app will probably be available from mobile devices too in the future.

You can get WeChat UWP for Windows 10 on the Microsoft Store.
