Iya Villania and Drew Arellano on love, share and chat via the World’s Most Searched Social Mobile App - WeChat

When it comes to communication thru online mobile apps, we already accepted the digital connection to be part of our life, same goes to real life celebrity sweethearts Iya Villania and Drew Arellano, they communicate with each other via WeChat and they share their digital love every day updating each other as soon as they wake up, go to work and go back home. Today, the WeChat endorsers are newly married and that doesn't stop them from communicating via WeChat.

Just like here at home, me and my wife communicates via WeChat even she's up in the room watching TV and me busy eating a nice doughnut at the kitchen. Sometimes we talk via the walkie talkie WeChat feature, to talk in real time like a real walkie talkie.

Also check out the cute infographic about Iya Villania-Arellano's day in life with WeChat.
Read on below to find out how WeChat makes user experiences more human for the two celebrities by fueling conversations, the same way they would when face-to-face.

1.Both can talk digitally the same way they do personally.

Gone are the days when people needed to hop a plane to talk to a family member in person or drive miles to catch up with friends. Today, WeChat lets both Iya and Drew reach people wherever they are with a video call function that works over WiFi or 3G networks and a group messaging feature that lets them host two chat rooms with up to 100 users in their lists. WeChat also makes it easy for them to shift from typing to talking when they press the “Hold to Talk” button, which records and sends messages in an instant—be it between breaks when hosting shows such as ASAP and Unang Hirit, or while at home trying out new recipes in the kitchen.

2. Both can bring on and capture the good times.
Just like a public album, WeChat allows all users in its network, including Iya and Drew, to share with the world photos, videos, recordings, and comments all in one platform called “Moments”. Whether while enjoying theziplines of Pagudpud, Antique, and Bohol, recording new tracks, plunging in the waters around Siquijor, Camiguin, and Sarangani, or performing on stage, both can easily capture snippets of their vibrant lifestyles and post them on for sharing on “Moments”.

3. Both can escape to fantasy worlds.

Beyond its social networking and location-based functions, WeChat is able to keep Iya and Drew entertained during down time with the newly released Game Center that comes with its version 5.1 upgrade. Both celebrities can run along with Kattie, Nikita, and Leo and embark on exciting Gunz Dash adventures, engage on a shooting match using Pencil Pilot, or get busy with arcade games 2Day’s Match and Craz3 Match.

4. Both can continue growing their circles.

As the faces of WeChat Philippines, both Iya and Drew can count on the social mobile app’s Official Accounts feature to let them connect to their fans worldwide at any given time. Whether for TV show schedules or updates about their activities, their subscribers are instantly notified whenever they post new content on this broadcast platform. Follow Iya and Drew on WeChat via their IDs: @IyaOfficial and @DrewOfficial.

5. Both can backup their moments.

Last but definitely not the least, Iya and Drew need not worry about their files suddenly getting corrupted or their conversations being forgotten. WeChat protects its users’ data by on-demand data backup and retrieval to/from its cloud based server.
