Dialog Semiconductor PLC announced its extended support for WeChat community by launching WeChat SDK. With the help of this kit, developers can add energy efficient Bluetooth connectivity between IoT or wearable devices and WeChat apps.
Based on the Q2 results of WeChat, one can see that it has become the largest stand-alone messaging app in the world with a whopping user-base of over 600 million users. This dramatic growth wasn’t possible had WeChat not focused on the development of third-party apps that could keep users from all over the world engaged.
Dialog’s development kit for WeChat comes with a protocol stake for the communication layer. It’s based on the SmartBond SoCs (System-on-Chip)’s DA1458x family and helps the developers cut down the overall development time consumed in wireless connectivity of their products to WeChat apps. Once implemented correctly, it enables WeChat users to control their wearable devices directly from their apps and share useful information with friends, family and other community members in a hassle-free way.
The Internet of Things is one of the fastest growing technologies in today’s time and have a bright future. Dialog’s development kit supports the internet of things based devices in the most seamless way possible. You can read more about this association between WeChat and Dialog here.
