But these activities sound cliché don’t you think? They’re so cliché you’ll be wondering what other things can bring out the “romantic” in you in simple but very special way.

Fortunately, WeChat has some tricks up its sleeve to help you bring out your own brand of special in this season of love. Read along as we list down four reasons why 2013’s most-searched social mobile app is bound to be your hero for the coming love-smeared holiday.


WeChat lets you air out your emotions

Valentine’s is that day of the year which can be as exciting or harrowing as you allow it to be. Of course, because WeChat would rather have you go with the former, you can count on its voice messaging feature to send out sweet, personal notes minus the tension and jitters. You can even go further by compiling audio recordings of love tracks and present it as a special playlist. Plus point: Recipients can save these audio recordings to WeChat’s Favorite Messages feature and replay it whenever they please.

Here’s how:

Choose a contact. Press the sound icon at the bottom left of the screen then press “hold to talk” to start recording.
