Ratings and Reviews
Cannot send images when specified a color profile for screen
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.
Unstable and a lackluster experience
The mobile version is alright (a lot of features that make it stand out) but this feels like a step in the wrong direction. As another reviewer stated, scrolling back up through feeds, or old content causes the app to crash, but the worst problem has to do with messages failing to send (even those without attachments or links to external content). In short, the extra features seem cool, but the app is just buggy, and its core feature seems to be poorly implemented. If you're looking for a solid messaging app on desktop, look elsewhere; hopefully this improves, but for now, my experience has been pretty bad.
As a Chinese, Wechat is a big part of my every-day communication. I downloaded it for mac but it is just awful. There are so many functions available on the phone version that are not on here. The newly added explore page or (”朋友圈“ in Chinese) is plain terrible. It crashes the app if you scroll back to the feed from days ago. The app needs a lot of improvement.
