WeChat is a fascinating service. Having grown to over 1.1 billion users since its launch eight years ago, the app encompasses many modern online services, with messaging and WeChat Pay being two of the most widely used, but also including tools for booking appointments, paying utilities, and more. With such a large user base, most companies now have ported some of their business into WeChat as well, allowing interactions, services, and more, without having to install additional phone apps. WeChat Maker is intended to help expand this ecosystem further.
To get started with WeChat Maker, you’ll need to install the WeChat app, then inside it, just start the new Maker tool. The company has created a handbook that steps through an overview and provides QR codes to help navigate getting the proper pieces installed on your phone.
We look forward to seeing what you make.
