I think "Weixin" should be accepted as well as "WeChat".
Okay, but now I really want to know how to say, "Can we fry pork in the subway?"
does this refer to messaging someone on wechat, actually making a call, or can it mean both?
Also, from what I understand, many mainland Chinese like to record (and play back) what each other says instead of typing words out as it is more tedious. Calls tend to be made amongst the older generation who may be less tech savvy.
wechat originated as a platform for short voice messages, so this could mean a mix of text and voice. when people call nowadays it is usually video for which you would say 视频
I use it mostly to pay for my 外卖 these days.
Can we chat in WeChat XD
Of course, I can use it, you just need to download it, and then fill in your information.
can we chat through the wechat...should be accepter
