Game changer

In order to survive in China you have to become nimble with two specific apps on your phone. WeChat and AliPay.

It's can be tough to navigate the apps and use another app to translate screen snapshots. A bit of a pain, but necessary to figure out what goods your buying and transactions you're making. When you're staring at this...

... It can be super confusing. If you're pressed for time, it can be a bit nerve wracking.

Good news. Alipay and WeChat just added a new feature in the apps. With the click of a floating button you now get this page instead...


Check out these two screens when ordering from a strange restaurant.

Again, huge. No more screen snapshots and taking the time to translate them. Same deal when ordering a taxi. Same when buying train tickets.

This happy moment has been gone brought to you by the letter S and the numbers 6 and 8. S for smile and 6 and 8 because they're everyone's favorite numbers here in China.

So you're saying that they've made it easier for you to live in a country for two years without making any effort to learn their language? 🤣
