Using WeChat on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below. This is because you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We will help you download and install WeChat on your computer in 4 simple steps below:

1: Download an Andriod Software emulator for Windows

The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR
B. Bluestacks App .
Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application.
If you do the above correctly, the Software will be successfully installed.

3: How to Use WeChat for Windows PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and locate the search bar. Now type WeChat in the search bar and hit Search. You will easily see the app. Click on WeChat application icon. A window of WeChat will open and it will display the app in your Emulator Software. Hit the Install button and your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.

  • Cannot send images when specified a color profile for screen

    By NFSKing
    This bug bothered me a very long time, and recently I found the reason. When screen color profile is at default (Color LCD), everything works fine. But if there was another color profile had been specified to screen in system display settings, then no image can be sent out. I cannot find any other place to submit this bug to the developer, so I can only submit it here, hope the developer can see it and solve it ASAP.

    This application is as good as anyr chat and communication product in the world. Although WhatsApp has details on when the text is read, WeChat has an outstanding features inlcuding Search, People Nearby, WeChat Pay, WeChat news and more. A must for China and increasingly more viable for the world.
  • The WeChat on Mac pro are bad

    By Zchiniphone
    From the very beginning, the weChat on computer had all kinds of problem, it has no moments, first of all, it lost conversations, that’s the second one. Now, it lost connections of any link on intenet. any link!!!!!!! If you keep this version of weChat, please do a decent job. Don’t play games, When promote the product saying, it can be used on different plateform. When users really get into the computer version, it is just a handicaped version. Please be professional!!!!
  • Consumes too much memory

    By Jar Jar B.
    I think it was a recent update that broke WeChat. Previously, even keeping WeChat open for days at end didnt consume so much memory. However, recently after updating it, I found the app to be sluggish. After playing around with it for a while, I realized that it was using up half of my memory when its been kept open for more than a few minutes. This has not happened before and is acting up recently. Please fix this.
  • You dont know wechat at all

    After updating to 2.3.10, the notification sounds for incoming video and voice calls are gone. I have enabled notifications in settings but did not help.
  • Volume Control Problem

    By Add me 7902855745
    Love the application. However, when I call, the volume of all the other apps on my Mac are lowered. For example, if I am calling someone but still want to listen to music, the music would be very soft. I hope this issue can be solved in the next update. Thank you!
  • No group voice or video call in Mac version

    By Dominoeffectdskaj
    The mac version is different with the Windows version. I can’t use group voice call or video call in group chat. The only way to group call is use phone. Pretty inconivence. Hope the update cound make some improvements.
  • Limited Functionality

    By Retusart
    How is that the app on the computer is less functional than the app on the phone ? I want to search people by tags, should be able to do that easily. I meet people for my business, I tag them, and then later I send messages according to my tags. Now I have to painstakingly do this on my phone. Boring ! I wish China would open up FB
  • Crashes as soon as I open it

    By Pete laHache
    I used this app with no problems for many months. Then I tried to send someone a video a few days ago and it crashed. Now it crashes everytime I open it. I have deleted and reinstalled several times. I have also shut down my computer and then booted again. Nothing fixes it.
