Chinese internet conglomerate Tencent (0700.HK) recently updated the iOS version of its WeChat mobile messaging app to version 6.7.0, which incorporates changes to the way in which subscription account content is presented to users. Following the update, a user's subscription accounts are no longer organized as a list of accounts, but instead deliver content through an information feed interface. Articles are displayed directly to the user in order of publication time.
Within the subscription account feed, each account uses an associated picture. If a single account publishes multiple articles simultaneously, only two of the articles - the main headline and its associated image followed by the second headline - will be displayed in the user's feed, and the user can click on an arrow symbol at the bottom of the post to reveal additional articles.
