WeChat launches group livestreaming

WeChat group livestreaming

As of August 28th, some Chinese netizens have been able to use group livestreaming in WeChat group chats. The feature, which is still in testing stages, enables all members of a group to participate in a livestream and can be hosted by anyone in the chat. The number of likes and comments are showed at the end of the stream. 

Group livestreaming can be used for a range of purposes, including education, e-commerce, group buying and dating.

In July, WeChat launched WeChat stores which provided a direct e-commerce link for accounts on the platform.
