In today’s WeChat Essential Tip, brought to you by China Channel, we will show you how to search for and watch episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’ using WeChat. We’ll also show you how to forward episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’ to your friends through WeChat moments and groups.
First go to your contacts, then select add official accounts.
Now tap the + button in the top corner to add a new official account.
Input ‘tencentvideo’ into the search field and follow the account.
Once in the account, tap the keypad icon in the bottom left corner so the menu buttons now change to the normal text or voice input options.
Type in ‘game of thrones’ and select the season you want to watch. Seasons 1-4 are currently available.
The first five minutes of the first episode of the season will be available immediately to watch. To continue watching the rest of the episode WeChat requests that you download the Tencent Video app. You do this by selecting the orange button 下载 (Download)
The app will automatically download if you are on android, or take you to the App Store if you are on iOS. Once you’ve installed the app, go back to WeChat again and open the Tencent Video official account. Select the season you wish to watch again. Now select 打开 (Open).
WeChat will seamlessly re-direct you to Tencent Video where you can now watch the entire episode in full screen. You can select the episode of the season that you wish to watch from the list below. Remember 季 (ji) means season and 集 (ji) means episode.
You can share the episode you are watching to your friends or post on your moments easily.
Add a comment and post.
Those who also have the Tencent video app installed will be able to view the entire episode by selecting the green banner.
This tip doesn’t just work with Game of Thrones of course. There are plenty of awesome shows to watch through WeChat!
