WeChat, a mobile social communication application, is now available on the Nokia Asha Touch family of smartphones, as it continues its assault on the African market. The app allows users to exchange text, voice, emoticons and photos with their friends over a mobile or data network.
“We recently launched WeChat for the Asha range globally,” said Brett Loubser, managing director of WeChat Africa.“Ultimately we want as many people as possible across Africa to experience WeChat, and we understand the success Nokia has had with the Asha range on the continent.”
Moses Sitati, Nokia’s head of developer engagement, innovation and corporate relations East Africa, said: “We’re excited about WeChat’s support to launch WeChat for Nokia Asha smartphones.”
The application is available for download in Nokia Store and official WeChat website.
