How to Add WeChat Tools


There are add-on tools for WeChat which is still a mystery to some. They are icons for you to quickly launch an app when you are chatting with your friends on WeChat, and able to send the content in that app to the conversation. It might sound a bit confusing right? Don’t worry, we will show you some screenshots instead.


The two special icons in the picture above are WeChat tools. The second icon is a WeChat emoticons app, and with it, i can send special emoticon stickers to my friends. For instance, i am now chatting with my friend Adrian and i am going to send him a funny emoticon. So i tap on the special icon to go in to the add-on feature.


I choose the emoticon that i want to send, and it pops out a confirmation dialog. I confirm to send and my friend Adrian will receive the animated emoticon.
