WeChat has updated its Windows desktop app with English language support and a raft of new features.

First launched in Chinese in January, the latest version lets you share files with other WeChat users on desktop or mobile. There’s also a screenshot tool that lets you capture an image and send it to a contact instantly, using controls within the app.

WeChat-Windows-File-Sharing

If you’re in a group chat, you can now grab a particular user’s attention by mentioning their username in your message. And in case you sent a message you didn’t intend to, you can delete it using the Message Recall feature.

WeChat-Windows-Group-Mentions

Oddly, WeChat’s Mac app hasn’t got an update since last November and doesn’t appear to include these features yet.
