China’s biggest messenger app WeChat announced on Wednesday that it has added the ability to pay with China’s digital currency to its wallet function in all of the 23 regions where the digital yuan is being trialed, including Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen. Users need to apply for accounts with Tencent’s WeBank before they can use the digital currency. Payments options via the national digital currency are now available in the Tencent-owned super app’s wallet interface. Tencent’s major rival Alibaba has been testing digital currency in its payment app Alipay since May 2021, Yicai reports. [ITHome, in Chinese]
