"World's most powerful app" still far behind WhatsApp

Tencent Holdings Ltd.’s strategy for expanding WeChat Pay globally is pretty straightforward: Follow the (tourism) money.

Grace Yin, operations director of WeChat Pay’s international business, summarized Tencent’s approach at the RISE Conference earlier this month in Hong Kong:

“World’s most powerful app”

Should be:

China's most powerful app.

Also...
However, as many Chinese people have more than one WeChat account, or even multiple ones, the number of active WeChat users should be smaller than 1 billion. WeChat falls behind Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, whose active users reportedly stood at 1.4 billion and 1.5 billion respectively as of last year.

I didn't say that it's wrong, it's just that you didn't get what you were hoping for in reply. :crylaugh:

Uhm...

But those apps don’t offer payments in all those countries. Although WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger have more users, WeChat’s depth of services — including bookings, bike rentals, payments, MiniApps and news — make it the world’s most powerful.

Too many ideas, poor execution. That is not power... it is burdening.

I'm fairly certain the world's most powerful app is used to run the hardon collider, not some phone thing
