Instruction for Wechat (微信)

Wechat is the most popular free app used by Chinese people in their daily life. They use this app to communicate with each other, hold group meeting, make the payment, distribute information and so on.

It is quite probably that your installation interface will show in English, so you could ignore the Chinese characters in the following instructions and just follow the steps.

Thus, we recommend every participant to install Wechat and register an account to facilitate your stay in China.

To install and register Wechat, please follow the instruction below:

1) go to app store on your phone, search Wechat and an app named “微信” will show up. 

2) Install the app and open it. The following picture might show up. The Chinese characters “注册” highlighted by the red circle means “register”. Click on that and go on with registration.
