With 889 million monthly active users, WeChat is China’s most important app. In addition to messaging, WeChat has capabilities similar to those of U.S. platforms Uber, Instagram, Tinder, Amazon, Skype, and Venmo—all in one app. Despite WeChat’s large user base, engagement has started to plateau across sectors.
