Incredibly annoying Watch app


I live in China and this app is basically necessary to have any sort of social or professional life in China and while the design occasionally makes my head hurt and my eyes bleed, it works and works fairly well EXCEPT for the absolutely trash Watch app. It’s pretty clear that the developers or execs or whoever decided to revamp the Watch app from what it was last year have never actually used the Watch app extensively. Having my wrist buzzed when EVERY SINGLE person messages me, unless I’ve muted them on the phone app, is infuriating. I have to uninstall the app to not constantly get pinged throughout the day. Sure, I could mute them in the main app, but that’s not a reasonable solution for a messaging app, to mute everyone. Neither is having to put my Watch into DND several times every day. The previous functionality of the Watch app, setting favorites whose notifications go through to the Watch, was FAR superior from a functionality standpoint for a device like the Watch. I really hope they make a change to how it operates, because at this point, they may as well just not have a Watch app.

Not good I feel terrible and cheated

Must press space!?!


WeChat is very good and easy to use, however, when I type a message to my friend, I want to change change a line to make it clearer for my friend to see. But everytime, there's no change line button, at that place, there said send instead of enter (change line). Then, some time later, I figure out that you need to press space until it's end of the line then type. It's very tiring for me and sometimes, one message contains 113 spaces just for changing my line, I was so tired at that time so please replace the send button to a enter button instead. And the send button can be beside the ··· button. Thanks! I hope this change in the future!
