You can sign in from any machine; all you will need to do is to simply scan the barcode shown on the screen for identity checks. You can exchange content (files, videos etc) between your phone and your PC. Other then voice messages and video messages, you can do everything on WeChat desktop version.
7> Text Only Moment Feature—Moment is photo feed feature in WeChat where you can share picture of (sun/night/food/flower etc.) anything with your contacts. You can even specify the group of people who can and cannot see the post. The hidden option in Moment is the option of “Text Only” feature. You can choose this option and your chosen people will still get to see and comment on the picture and it is geo-located as well. So far, this hidden feature has not been worked on and still has a lot holding for future.
