President Donald Trump’s ban on using WeChat for transactions is a cause for concern for the 19 million people in the United States who use the app every day. Banning WeChat would cut off a main source of communication with loved ones and business contacts in China. Fortunately, there is still an affordable way to call China for those in the U.S.
WeChat can’t be replaced by a single solution. It’s a “super app” that has become essential to daily life in China. WeChat includes messaging, calling, social media, online shopping, payments, and more.
For users in the U.S., its draw is the ability to stay connected with the world’s most populous country. However, in the event WeChat is disabled in the U.S. there are some affordable alternatives for staying connected with loved ones abroad.
