Connect with new friends, reconnect with old friends.

Planning to go bazaar-hopping with a group of friends for the weekend? Never leave anyone behind and keep everyone in the loop by using WeChat's Real-Time Location Sharing feature. Invite your friends to share where they are and help them navigate their way on the WeChat Map and through an integrated Walkie-Talkie session. Simply open a chat > + > Locations > Real-time Location > to view one another's maps. Now how cool is that?
