On the evening of April 12, there was a major revision to the WeChat public account backend. Content editors on the platform can optimize video, audio, photo publishing to improve their followers’ content reading efficiency, Chinese media Sohu is reporting. 

Currently, in the content management (素材管理) menu on the backend of WeChat public account, WeChat content editors can only add text content. With the revision, now when users click on “+” at the end of the list, they directly add five different formats of content: “graphics and text (图文消息)”. “video (视频消息),” “audio (音频消息),” “picture (图片消息),” or “reproduced (转载).”

“This is the first time that the official account platform (公众平台) has transformed message types. It has changed from native to H5 to facilitate interaction and better disseminate content. We want everybody to experience it first, and can give us feedback any time,” a Tencent spokesperson told TechNode.
