Download And Install WeChat For PC: Step by Step Guide

We ChatWechat is a multi-purpose chat application from Tencent, a major software company in China. It is available in a range of languages, and has more than 300 million users worldwide. The app allows for voice messaging, including group voice chat, video chat, and text messaging.

It is available for smartphones, including iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Phone, but the app’s popularity and wide range of features lead many to look for a way to install it on their home computers as well. Although no PC version has been released to date, it can be easily installed using an emulator.

Step One: Install Your Android Emulator

Firstly, you need to find and install an emulator. Your computer cannot run Android apps directly, but an emulator is the easiest way around the problem. Put simply, your computer runs the emulator, and the emulator runs the app. There are many emulators available and they can be easily found through search engines such as Google, but one of the best and most popular is Bluestacks.

Bluestacks offers plenty of features, runs smoothly for most users, and unlike some of its competitors it is completely free. You can download it from then double click the downloaded file to start the installation.

Step Two: Install Wechat to Your Emulator

Bluestacks and most other emulators include a function to search for available apps. This makes installing it, but also WhatsApp very easy. Just run your emulator and search for “Wechat,” and you should easily find the right program on the list of results.

Just click to install, and it will be automatically added to your list of installed apps. Now, when you open Bluestacks, you can easily launch the program and any other apps you care to install in the same way.

Step Three: Create an Account & Enjoy

When you run it for the first time, you will be asked to sign in or create an account. If you already have an account from using the app on your phone, just log in as usual. On the other hand, if this is the first time you have used this app you need to register for an account. This is very simple, and just involves entering a few personal details such as your country and name. You will also have an option to link to your Facebook account.

Once you start using this great application, you will find a wide range of chat and messaging features. Many people also save money from using Wechat, as the voice messaging makes a great alternative to phone calls, especially with added features such as group voice chat. Video calls and instant text messaging also make great alternatives to SMS and other PC chat clients.

    Is there any way to install this without an emulator?

  • Bridgette

    Installed in just a minute or so. Super easy and sweet messaging program!

  • Michael

    Thanks. I tried it to install and it worked.

  • Jessica K. Parker

    Installing and emulator looks a lot easier than I thought it would be! I’m pretty good with a computer but I don’t consider myself all that tech savvy, you know? But I think even I can manage this!

    I’ll download the Android emulator and give WeChat a try. It looks like a fun application and I’d love to try out the voice chat feature.

  • Lynn Ross

    My kids all use WeChat. My husband has installed the application as well. I’m the only one in the family who isn’t currently using it. I’m feeling left out!

    Imagine what they’ll say when they realize mom has installed in on her computer using an emulator! Do you think they’ll be impressed?

  • Anise Blake

    I love WeChat! It’s such a fun and dynamic program. I use it primarily for voice messaging but I do some texting as well. Lots of my friends use it so it’s very convenient.

    I just have one question! Can you recommend other cool apps for me to use with the Android emulator? It seems a shame to download it exclusively for one program.

  • Meg

    I never thought to use an Android emulator so that I could use phone apps on my computer! I use emulators for other things, like playing old video games, but I never stopped to think that there were probably emulators for phone operating systems as well. So cool!

    I’m totally going to do this!

  • Trisha

    It would be great if I could consolidate my video calls and instant text messaging all into one program. I dislike having a bunch of programs open and I’d prefer to just streamline it if at all possible! I’ll look into this program. It seems like something I’d find very useful.

  • Sara

    Thanks for the info. I will definitely check out this We Chat.
