The desktop version of the app has all sorts of bugs. Pictures sent in messges can't be opened and videos play audio but not video. The app crashes regularly. Some improvements have been made like being able to translate messages and post things on Moments.

Needs some fine-tuning
They keep fixing bugs, which is great, but the Mac app needs more than that. For example, when restarting the computer, logins do not persist. This is a personal Mac, so I'd like it to stay logged in. Also, even when phone and Mac are on the same Wi-Fi, it doesn't always sync your whole chat history. If it syncs over our personal Wi-Fi, that's no stress on Tencent's servers. The Mac app is great though, in that it makes the different features easier to use and having sync to PC is great. Finally, I'm grateful that there's an easy solution to chat with Chinese people. It helps me to improve my Chinese and I love my friends.

Unstable and a lackluster experience
The mobile version is alright (a lot of features that make it stand out) but this feels like a step in the wrong direction. As another reviewer stated, scrolling back up through feeds, or old content causes the app to crash, but the worst problem has to do with messages failing to send (even those without attachments or links to external content). In short, the extra features seem cool, but the app is just buggy, and its core feature seems to be poorly implemented. If you're looking for a solid messaging app on desktop, look elsewhere; hopefully this improves, but for now, my experience has been pretty bad.

Cannot send images when specified a color profile for screen
This bug bothered me a very long time, and recently I found the reason. When screen color profile is at default (Color LCD), everything works fine. But if there was another color profile had been specified to screen in system display settings, then no image can be sent out. I cannot find any other place to submit this bug to the developer, so I can only submit it here, hope the developer can see it and solve it ASAP.

Just Pathetic
As a Chinese, Wechat is a big part of my every-day communication. I downloaded it for mac but it is just awful. There are so many functions available on the phone version that are not on here. The newly added explore page or (”朋友圈“ in Chinese) is plain terrible. It crashes the app if you scroll back to the feed from days ago. The app needs a lot of improvement.

Great, but needs some updates.
The app itself is great, and the system works well. Bur it needs to have some changes for PC version. One change is that you could read Moments,and also send voice mail. It also needs other things like group voice chats and the abilty to take Red Packets. This app is great!

Why cannot sync the voice messages?
I have trouble syncing the voice messages when I logged into my MacBook Pro. Is it because of the computer or the wechat version? I checked it is the version up to date. Can anyone tell me what is the problem? I used to be able to send and receive voice messages. Why cannot send anymore with computer?

This application is as good as anyr chat and communication product in the world. Although WhatsApp has details on when the text is read, WeChat has an outstanding features inlcuding Search, People Nearby, WeChat Pay, WeChat news and more. A must for China and increasingly more viable for the world.

The WeChat on Mac pro are bad
From the very beginning, the weChat on computer had all kinds of problem, it has no moments, first of all, it lost conversations, that’s the second one. Now, it lost connections of any link on intenet. any link!!!!!!! If you keep this version of weChat, please do a decent job. Don’t play games, When promote the product saying, it can be used on different plateform. When users really get into the computer version, it is just a handicaped version. Please be professional!!!!

Great, but need some improvements
From past few months, the mac version of Wechat has improved significantly and added more and more functions making it more similar to the mobile version. Which is awesome👏. However I am not able to add group notice as a 管理员 which bothers me a lot since it is just impossible to do long notices on my mobile. It is also inconvinient not able to change my group name on mac. Hope these functions can be added.

Consumes too much memory
I think it was a recent update that broke WeChat. Previously, even keeping WeChat open for days at end didnt consume so much memory. However, recently after updating it, I found the app to be sluggish. After playing around with it for a while, I realized that it was using up half of my memory when its been kept open for more than a few minutes. This has not happened before and is acting up recently. Please fix this.

why add so many functions?
The strangest app that I've ever met. They keep add functions into this app to make it all-around. It can communicate, take photos, listen to musics, play games and send posts. And as users we can't freely block some of the features. It's no longer an app, but an OS! Why do I need so many gorgeous but inpractical features? Why I can't close some of them, and focus my time on communication via this app?

Blocked for No Reason
So was using for few weeks and suddenly for no real reason I was blocked for suspicious activity? Huh? Benighn conversation with a girl = suspicious activity? And the way to unlock is another Wechat account users phone number? That is ridiculous. I don't know anyone else. This one girl in China and I'm in the US and only started just chatting so I don't have her number and nor would she trust me with it considering we just met online. Like really?

infinite crashes
long-time user and I am so in love with the new security feature that automatically signs me out of my account for no reason whatsoever when im using it. Literally typing a message to someone and and BAM - logout! Then there's the wonderful customer support and total lack of feedback options to submit reports. AWESOME! It such a great feature to keep my account safe with random logouts and make new problems to destroy any value in this app. GENIUS!

Clearly Tencent only begrudginly offers their app for Mac users. Searches for known, confirmed addresses, even in the U.S. result in a big fat ZERO. The WeChat support extension is not recognized by Safari. The required scanning via your phone is the obvious giveaway example of this. So, I will gladly pay TEN TIMES whatever these creeps at Tencent charge for a phone call to my friends in China or any where else on the planet rather than use ther service. Tencent, if you are reading this, FUAWs, comprende?

under control by Chinese Government
The compnay will block msg between Wechat and weixin under goevernment control. The Tencent separated one social madia App in two: wexin in china and Wechat out of mainland, try to avoid legal liability, but either in China or US, Freedom of Speech are protected under constitution in both countries. So Tencent help Chinese government monitoring people chating on the APP and block the communication technically, Apple store should review the app and take it down.

Unreliable - Do not use
Our company used this app for messaging. Team members would frequently send each other messages, only to find out the message never came through on the other end. Do not use. Cannot be trusted to actually send and recieve messages. We had to switch to another messaging platform.

Volume Control Problem
Love the application. However, when I call, the volume of all the other apps on my Mac are lowered. For example, if I am calling someone but still want to listen to music, the music would be very soft. I hope this issue can be solved in the next update. Thank you!

Features missing
It’s overall not so bad, but we all know it’s kind of embarassing at this stage! The PC version of WeChat already supported group chat video/audio call but why not in macOS version? I don’t see any potential technical difficulties in this function. That’s super annoying.

Advise for users
First of all, I declare that using this software is a last resort. In China, quite a lot of foreign content has been blocked and can only be forced to use Chinese "domestic" software. If you are fortunate enough to have the rest, then as a Chinese citizen, I would like to provide a piece of advice here: Don't touch Chinese products. Software or hardware, you never know what traps are hidden behind them! ! !

Limited Functionality
How is that the app on the computer is less functional than the app on the phone ? I want to search people by tags, should be able to do that easily. I meet people for my business, I tag them, and then later I send messages according to my tags. Now I have to painstakingly do this on my phone. Boring ! I wish China would open up FB

Cannot easily quit the App
The app's design leaves much to be desired. Upon clicking the app icon, locating the quit button or option is not straightforward. I firmly believe that users should have the ability to easily exit an app. However, the developer seems to intentionally complicate this process in contrast to other apps.

Almost perfect!
I wish WeChat Internaitonal can add HOLD TO TALK to send voice messages just like we do on iPhone! Then, if I’m not hoping too much, I hope we may add Moments to Mac version. After these two features been added in the future, WeChat on Mac will be perfect!!! : ) Keep it up.

Video Chat cannot hear
From a macbook pro to a iphone, the macbook side cannot hear anything from the other side but the iphone can hear it. Same devices are used in facetime and works. We like to use wechat for video chat because we are familiar with the application but it has been disappointed. 电脑跟手机视频的时候,电脑那边没有声音但是手机那边可以听到。同样的电脑和手机用facetime连接交流都没问题。我们喜欢用微信因为我们比较熟悉这款软件但却问题不断,希望可以跟进

Not that great
This app is great on the iphone, but I found a problom on the mac. Every single time I close my mac, it asks to confirm login on iphone. What? So are you telling me that if I dont have my phone currently on me that means I can't login? I think Wechat should remove this feature for it's bad uses.

Ridiculously painful account lock experience
For some reason, their system determined my account was compromised (it wasn't), and I needed to re-verify it but the only way to do so wasn't via sending me a text message, which it did ,but to get another wechat person to verify for me. Ridiculous!
