WeChat announced 2 new updates in its public subscriptions’ tipping function (赞赏功能).

The platform now allows tipping the original author in reproduced copies of an original article in other subscription accounts.

Further, according to WeChat, subscription accounts reproducing any original articles cannot modify either the content or the author, but a few extra words for comments will be allowed. After the update, the reproduction process needs no further human confirmation anymore. An article’s reproduction and related tipping procedures can be monitored and confirmed by machine alone.
