The case of WeChat and its dominance in China is an interesting one. Released as a messaging app in 2011, WeChat now is much more than that. To borrow a phrase from Connie Chan, it is “actually more of a portal, a platform, and even a mobile operating system depending on how you look at it.” The app has over 900m monthly active users. Their users not only send and receive messages on the app but also a hail a cab, order food, buy flight tickets, play games and whole a lot more. Users access these services via verified accounts within WeChat which essentially are lightweight apps within the WeChat app. This model might only work in a country like China but it essentially gives the blueprint of what the rest of the mobile world is going to resemble soon – users using their Messaging app to access all their favorite services.
