Yesterday, WeChat, the popular mobile social communications app that has taken the world by storm was officially launched in Malaysia. Not only did it mark WeChat’s official launch, the company’s first ever Bahasa Malaysia television commercial starring local celebrities and WeChat ambassadors Lisa Surihani and Shaheizy Sam also made their debut.
Made available to Malaysians in June 2012, the free mobile social communications platform which supports sending live chat, voice, video, photo and text messages, went on to quickly gain popularity among local user accounts.
The popularity of WeChat among Malaysians has resulted in the app ranking #1 in both the iOS Appstore social networking free category and Android Google Play communication free category for one year, and has also ranked very high in overall free category.
Their recent entry into Malaysia has also opened up fresh opportunities to work with several giants across various industries. One notable partnership is with Domino’s Pizza.
