There are 7 different voices as well as 6 different background tracks to select from. Send your funny voice messages thru WeChat & give your friends a shock. This one is really fun & is one of my favorite WeChat trick.
7: WeChat Has No “Delivery Confirmation”, Why ?
“WeChat has this purposely”
1st, Because, a good mobile IM should ‘deliver successfully’
Only bad service will cause “deliver not successfully”
2nd, “Delivery confirmation” “Read“ make user less pressure in Chatting.
Let’s say you are in busy & read someone’s message, if it shows “Read”, you will feel pressure that you must reply soon? actually chatting should not give user such pressure, for real serious & urgent case, people will simply call instead of sending messages. right?
Then friends showed their interests & many asked me if they can save these words, if they can spread these words, they like WeChat design philosophy!
Yes, the design is from Allen Zhang & his team.
