That’s less than those on the world’s most popular messaging app Whats App (900 million) and on Facebook Messenger (800 million).But those 650 million – and the number is growing rapidly – aren’t just telling each other what train they’re on, sharing photos of their breakfasts, flirting, or organising or conducting a meeting, though they do all of this too, of course. Users, in China at least, can order and pay for a taxi; donate to their favourite charity; send DIY postcards from whatever city they’re in; transfer money to a friend; find their nearest petrol station; check in for a flight; search a library catalogue for a book; shop; pay off a credit card; book a doctor’s appointment; follow the official accounts of celebrities ranging from Fan Bingbing to John Cusack; buy movie tickets; keep up with the Communist Party line via the People’s Daily (We Chat’s most heavily subscribed official account); check the points on their driver’s licence; top up their mobile accounts and find restaurant reviews, in some cases discovering how many people are queuing for tables before adding their names to the list.Australia already has at least one company (Hi We Chat) that specialises in helping businesses market into China using We Chat.According to the Wall Street Journal, while Facebook is certainly trying, ‘it won’t be simple for Facebook or others to copy We Chat’s success.’ David Pierce is even more categorical: ‘Many apps will try to replicate what We Chat has done, and all (or all but one) will fail.’ The reason is because We Chat’s ‘mobile-first’, PC-free development model is unique.And as one official has been reported as observing, there’s got to be at least one place where people can let off a bit of steam, and We Chat might be it.

And if that’s all too much, you can just play games. One-fifth of the world’s population is Chinese and mainland China has more than twice as many internet users as the US (674 million as compared with 281 million, according to 2015 statistics).

A Chinese toy company has even created a cute little Bluetooth-enabled plush toy (‘Mon-Mon’) based on a popular We Chat emoji that a parent can use to send voice messages or even pre-recorded bedtime stories to their children while away – and all a child has to do to reply is press the creature’s belly and talk.

We Chat is, as David Pierce wrote in Wired magazine, ‘The Everything App’. Once connected, wherever you are in the world, you can chat individually or in groups via text, voice messages, or free Skype-like voice or video call.

One reason for the slow decline in the popularity of Weibo was that it was easy for the government to monitor and censor.

A number of dissonant voices have moved to We Chat.
