Poshu Yeung, the vice president of the international business group called Tencent which owns the WeChat service, said that they will continue to try and provide “an easy-to-use, all-in-one experience.”

WeChat games was just launched recently as the service makes an attempt to become more like a social network and tries to differentiate itself from other messaging services.

WeChat has recently stepped up its attempts at gaining more users in the Western world and particularly in the United States.

Tencent also used FC Barcelona footballer, Lionel Messi, in an ad campaign all over Asia to promote the app.
