But what about QQ?
QQ is an app that has 640 million users. In China, most people use WeChat for their professional life and QQ for their private life. QQ is an app that has almost as much functionalities as WeChat but the big difference is that you can create avatars, communities, and use its SNS functions.
As a comparison, with WeChat you can

With QQ, you can :
– create your avatar
