Enterprise WeChat Quietly Changed its Name of Overseas Version

Recently, the English name of the enterprise WeChat (overseas version) has been changed from WeChat Work to WeCom. The official website of the enterprise WeChat English version has shown the English name WeCom.

According to the official website of Enterprise WeChat, Enterprise WeChat is a professional office management tool launched by Tencent’s WeChat team in 2016. It maintains a consistent communication experience with WeChat

, And communicate with WeChat messages, applets, and WeChat payment. Enterprise WeChat is the only business software that can connect with WeChat. This means that through enterprise WeChat, companies can reach 1.2 billion WeChat users.

There is no official announcement regarding the change of corporate WeChat name, but Apple and Google App Store have made corresponding adjustments.

The quiet change of corporate WeChat name is believed to be related to the recent US ban on WeChat.

In early August 2020, Trump signed an executive order to impose restrictions on ByteDance’s TikTok and Tencent’s WeChat, prohibiting individuals or entities within the US jurisdiction from conducting WeChat-related transactions with Tencent.

The US ban on WeChat has stirred up waves, and the impact continues to ferment.

Apple, whose important market is the Chinese market, is greatly affected. The US ban on WeChat will result in a decrease in iPhone shipments in the Chinese market. As a result, iPhone shipments will drop by 25-30%. Other Apple hardware devices, including AirPods, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac, will be shipped annually. The volume dropped by 15-25%.
More than a dozen large American multinational companies, including Apple, Ford Motor, Wal-Mart, Walt Disney, Procter & Gamble, Intel, etc., held conference calls with White House officials to express concerns about Trump’s executive order.

WeChat users in the US are also expressing dissatisfaction with the ban. The US WeChat user organization “WeChat User Alliance of America” ​​will formally sue the executive order signed by President Trump against WeChat for infringing on their rights under the Constitution.
