One of the advantages for me of WeChat is that you don't have to give someone your mobile number to connect with them. You can use a QR code

In WhatsApp you need to exchange numbers to connect, which I find problematic.

WeChat is prevalent in China now not only in education but all aspects of life.

Agree. One of the other advantage of using Wechat as a teaching tool is that since using wechat has integrated in Chinese people’s life (communicate with friends and family, colleagues, paying electricity bills, booking taxi, hotel appointment), the APP itself doesn’t present as a “boring” separate APP.

Psychologically it is more accessible, I think
Dr. Gary Motteram

I think it is less physically available, particularly in certain countries

Take France as an example where they have recently banned mobile is schools
