WeChat app for Windows 10 now available in the Windows Store

Those looking to have the WeChat app installed on their Windows 10 device will not need to wait any longer because it is now available via the Windows store. From what we can tell, the app doesn’t appear to be fully functional at this time, probably due to the app not being officially available.

Whenever a user attempts to scan the QR code to connect the app with their smartphone, it crashes. This happens every time we’ve tried, but we expect the issue to be rectified once the developer opens it up to the public. For now, we can’t say when this will happen, but seeing as WeChat is visible in the Windows Store, it is safe to say the official unveiling could be days away.

The screenshot on the Windows Store shows an app with basic functionality, so version 1.0 might not come with some of the app’s more advanced features. If you’re a fan of Windows 10, though, this should tide you over until more features are added.

Give the app a try by visiting this link. It probably won’t work, but who knows? Luck could be on your side today.

In the past we asked if Tencent would bring a UWP version of WeChat to Windows 10, and clearly this is happening now. But what about SnapChat? Well, it doesn’t appear as if the developer is working on a version of that app for Windows 10 Mobile, and Microsoft doesn’t seem to be making any efforts to get it on the platform.

Nonetheless, the software giant is making moves to get Pokemon GO on Windows 10, so at least that’s happening. If you can’t wait, learn how to play the game on your Windows 10 PC right now with this easy guide.
