WeChat available for Nokia Asha – Review and How to Download

WeChat, the cross-platform messaging app was recently launched for Asha Full touch phones. A less-advanced version was previously available only for keypad based Nokia X3-02/C3-01. The new redesigned application also brings the ability to record and send short voice messages from within the application.

Looks and Functionality:

The app is well designed and does make you feel like you’re using it on a smartphone. It is perfectly optimized for the screen size and hence all the functions are easily accessible with easy taps. Making full use of the screen estate, the app properly arranges the available contacts and active chats.

Chat Conversations

Chat messages are properly sorted in the conversation view which makes reading and replying easy. The app does not come with any external keyboard and uses the default keyboard of the phone which IMO is the best implementation as there’s always some sort of problem using the external keyboards.

Besides written messages, users can also send photos by clicking from the camera directly or choosing a photo already saved in the gallery.

Another great option that the app provides is the ability to record and send voice messages from within the application.

To send a voice message, just hold down the call (green) key and speak. Release the key when you’re done recording.

Contacts:

You can easily import your phone contacts into the application and directly start a conversation. Or else you can manually add a contact through his/her WeChat ID or phone number.

There is also an option to link and import your contacts from QQ messenger and use QQ-related features on WeChat.

How to download WeChat to your Nokia Asha phone?

Supported Devices: As of now, WeChat is only available for Nokia Asha 303, 305, 306, 308, 309, 310 and 311

Update - WeChat is now also available for the newly launched Asha 501. Visit the Nokia Stire to download the app on your colorful new Asha 501 :)

To download you can either use the Nokia Store utility in your phone and search for WeChat. Else you can download it using your PC (Nokia Suite is needed) or directly on your mobile using the Nokia Store’s mobile version. Following are the links:

Download on Mobile  |  Download on your PC

For devices which are not supported:

If your device is not among the list of supported devices, there are chances that the app can still work on your phone. If your phone supports WhatsApp messenger, it will definitely support WeChat as well. Leave a comment below if you need the jar (& jad) file for your unsupported phone.

    the wechat app is available in nokia c3-00. i am using it.
    but the people nearby you is not working. whenever i am clicking on it shows a message “location service is not available in your device”
    anyone knows how to fix it???

    • Narender December 24, 2013 at 10:25 pm #

      No fix possible. C3 does not have the required hardware/software implementation to determine the location via cell towers. So practically no way for the app to find where you are.
