Video chat has become the preferred way to connect in any long-distance relationship, romantic or otherwise. Weixin is looking to find users in a crowded room full of FaceTime, Skype, and other popular apps. With fast performance and enough cool features, it makes a convincing case for itself.
Setting up an account takes only a few seconds and is even quicker if you sign up with your Facebook account. Adding your friends is just as easy, as you can search your existing accounts to add to your friends list and contacts. You can even find contacts through scanning QR codes or shaking your phone against another person's with the app open. No matter how you get your friends' contact information, the video quality on Weixin is just as good as any other service. You can even share videos, pictures, and other media without hitting any text fees.
With 200 million users already and the service enabling Facebook Connect, Weixin could become a premiere video chat app for sure. It matches the big names in video chat when it comes to features, support, and style. It just needs all of your friends for it to work better than Skype for you.
