The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing
The Chinese internet giant Tencent has announced that it will soon be launching a work-based chat app, dubbed Enterprise WeChat.
Enterprise WeChat will allow users to send messages, share files, images, GPS locations, and make voice calls to individuals and groups.
It will also allow users to send forms requesting reimbursements and annual leave, and let users notify each other that a message has been received by clicking on a “receipt” button.
There are already a few Chinese workplace chat apps in the market, such as Eko, Teambition and Alibaba-owned Dingtalk, but none of these have particularly taken off.
Tencent hopes that Enterprise WeChat will do better because of its obvious association with its main chat app WeChat, which is hugely popular in the country with 650 million users.
