All about Wechat with Charlie Custer
Charlie Custer, editor of Tech In Asia discuss everything about Wechat by Tencent, the most popular messaging app in China.

Charlie Custer, editor of Tech In Asia joined us to talk on everything about Wechat by Tencent, the most popular messaging app in China by one of the top Chinese internet companies and why Facebook and Snapchat are now focused on cloning it for the western markets. We discuss why Wechat is so successful not just in gathering users but also its uncanny ability to monetise with various revenue streams and also Tencent’s history with QQ, it’s former desktop messaging app. We touched on the conversation on why Chinese companies copy and also the motivation behind Charlie’s latest project, the Tech in Asia podcast.
