How to delete your Wechat chat history on your PC/laptop

Let’s start this article off by throwing some mind-bending WeChat statistics at you.

  • 45 billion messages are sent daily by WeChat users.
  • The average user spends 66 minutes a day on WeChat.
  • 6.1 billion voice messages get sent daily.
  • 205 million video messages are sent every day.
  • Over 200 million bank cards used in China are linked to the WeChat Pay side of the app.
  • When it comes to workplace communications, 90% of Chinese professionals choose WeChat.
  • 70% of users in China prefer WeChat for work, compared to email.

With all those text and voice messages, images and videos being stored on your phone it can very quickly swamp storage space.

Thankfully, WeChat has now made it possible to delete all those files on your PC / laptop in a few simple steps.
