Just like the WhatsApp Web client launched last week, in order to get up and running with WeChat for PC, you’ll need to scan a QR code from within the mobile app. Once your phone is linked to your computer, messages will be mirrored across both devices, but alerts will only show on your computer. For now, it’s only available in Chinese.
If downloading another program to your computer just feels like too much effort, you can, of course, still use the WeChat web client from any operating system.
Pssst, hey you!
