Tencent just released a separate mobile app WeChat Official Account 订阅号助手, our sister site has reported. The app is now available on iOS (sorry, Android users).

At the 2018 WeChat Open Class PRO event back in January, Allen Zhang, president of WeChat, teased the mobile version of Official Account.

“WeChat is designed as a mobile-first product, but the operating platform of Official Account is highly reliant on PC. Moving from what we have on PC platform to the app or creating a whole different mobile experience, we were torn between the two options. But luckily, we are finishing the app now and it will be released very soon,” said Zhang.
