WeChat just rolled out a new feature called “WeChat Top Topics” in its app on Thursday, showing users in the search section the trending topics circulating on the internet based on WeChat Index.

TechNode tested out the new feature and found it very similar to what Weibo’s trending chart has to offer.

Now, when users tap on the “search” icon on their WeChat apps, they can see an option of searching by “Information.” This is where users get to search articles, and a list of “WeChat Top Topics” pops up on the screen, pushing the content of these trending topics to the users along with the corresponding WeChat Index.
