Unlike recent version updates and more focused on the video function number changes, this version of the update is more focused on optimizing the chat experience, so the translation faster, so that micro-channel voice telephony personalized, make better use …… group message
Next, let us take a look at the new features of WeChat 8.0.8 for iOS update.

1. WeChat "Ring Tone" is coming, the alert tone and ringtone can be replaced
It's not an exaggeration to say "Xida Pu Ben"-WeChat message notification tone and incoming call ringtone can finally be customized!
"How to change the WeChat message alert tone", I believe that most WeChat users have searched for similar content. Android users may be able to modify it by replacing files, but iOS users are subject to more system restrictions.
There is nothing better than the functional support provided by the app itself. You can change the alert tone and ringtone in "Me> Settings> New Message Notification". The message prompt tone does not support self-uploading audio. Currently, there are 8 prompt tones to choose from: default, building blocks, cute, ethereal, playful, crisp, smart, and elegant.
In addition to the message alert tone, you can also set the "Ring Tone" in "Me> Settings> Incoming Call Ringtones". The selection of ringtones for incoming calls is much richer than the notification tones. Click "Change ringtones" to select audio from QQ music, video number and other content as your incoming call ringtone. If you want to customize the ringtone, you can upload the content through the video number.
At the same time, you can also set exclusive ringtones for your friends, choose some memorable music to your friends, so that each friend hears different ringtones.
We were stunned by the setting relationship many times during the test, so interested readers can also learn more about the use of exclusive ringtones through the table below.

It can be said that ten years after the launch of WeChat, we have regained the joy of choosing ringtones in our childhood, and this time "ringtones" do not need to be purchased separately or paid monthly.
2. Block group messages but follow specific group members
The "group bottom" feature that is often put on the wish list has not come, but the highly acclaimed group friend message on the company's WeChat has specially reminded it.
Click the WeChat group settings page to see the "Message Do Not Disturb" button, and the option of "Follow group members" has been added below the button. When you set a group member to follow, the group member will send a message in the group to remind you to pay attention, and will not be affected by Do Not Disturb. You can follow up to 4 group members.
This function is especially suitable for the leaders of the company group, the teachers of the class group, the parents of the family group, and the crush of friends in the chat group.
But it should be noted that this function is not available when there are corporate WeChat users in the group.
3. Sticky chat more than one screen automatically folds
For those who don’t have a few friends and group chats that are pinned to chat, many people may also pin a file transfer assistant. But too many top chats will also make it impossible to see new messages in time. After all, the mobile phone screen is so big, the top chat box is full, and other chat boxes will not be seen.
In order to solve the problems of these users, WeChat 8.0.8 for iOS has been adjusted. If the top chat box is more than one screen, the prompt button of "Fold Top Chat" will appear at the bottom, click to complete the folding, and multiple top chat pages will become the prompt bar of "X Top Chats", click to re-call .
But you don’t need to worry about the missed messages of top chat friends/group chats, because as long as you receive a new message, the corresponding chat box will reappear at the top of the chat page, and the prompt bar will correspondingly change to "(X-1) Pinned chats".
4. WeChat multiple interface optimization
People who are accustomed to hanging WeChat on their computer at work can see the "Mac/Windows WeChat logged in" prompt on the homepage, and click to set the three settings of mute phone, lock, and file transfer.
And the setting page of WeChat on the computer side also has the interface UI changes in this version. The original full-screen and semi-transparent settings page has become a card-like design. This card-like design also makes people guess whether there will be more logged-in device setting cards in the future.
The change of the login interface of WeChat on the computer side is the same. It also changed from a full-screen and semi-transparent login interface to a card login interface.

At the same time, the prompt interface of the friend's voice call has also changed from a full screen to a top banner, and the full screen can be restored by clicking.
There is also a small optimization of the interface that the original shared and forwarded symbol is "bent", from a straight pointed design to a slightly curved arrow.

5. Help friends freeze WeChat
This time I also launched a new feature that is useful but I hope you won’t be able to use it-to freeze WeChat for friends.
With more and more money in WeChat wallets and more and more relatives and friends in WeChat, the loss of WeChat stolen will increase. In WeChat 8.0.8 for iOS, once your friend's WeChat account is stolen or his phone is lost, you can help him freeze the WeChat account to prevent the privacy of the friend from leaking, the funds being stolen, and the friend from being scammed.
In "Me> Settings> Account and Security> Freeze WeChat for a friend", you can select a contact, and freeze the WeChat account through the bound mobile phone number, bound QQ number, bound bank card, and face recognition.
6. WeChat official website update
The official website UI has not changed for many years, and people who are sensitive to design can feel the traces of history.
The WeChat official website, which was finally updated recently, has become a flat design, the interface looks younger and more fashionable, and the WeChat green is also more conspicuous.

CallKit not yet online
Finally, I have to mention the "White Moonlight" CallKit of many readers.
Some netizens reported some time ago that without upgrading the system and not in the WeChat internal beta, their WeChat has the CallKit function again, that is, after receiving a voice call, it can be displayed and answered like a system phone (regardless of whether the screen is locked). However, this feature is still not online in WeChat 8.0.8 for iOS, and may still be in grayscale testing.

When Apple released iOS 10, CallKit was launched. WeChat was the first to adapt in the 6.6.0 for iOS version. The launch of the "Voice Call Answering System" setting has won praise from many users.
In May 2018, a developer received an email from the Apple App Review Center and was told that due to the regulations of the Ministry of Industry and Information Industry, apps on the mainland cannot use CallKit, otherwise the app will be removed or not reviewed Passed, the function will soon be offline.
For this reason, many "strong men" insisted on WeChat version 6.6.2 for a long time, and they didn't compromise until the non-update would affect the normal use of some functions. I hope that CallKit will "return" as soon as possible to bring a better audio and video call experience.
▲ The setting of "Voice call with system phone answering" in WeChat
The WeChat official website, which has not been revised since its launch, has changed from the design style of the iPhone 4 period to a simple and lively design. CallKit, which has disappeared for nearly 4 years, is a low-key gray test.
From the perspective of product design, change and unchanged are relative. Only when readers read the WeChat update summary on APPSO can it be sustainable.
