QQ is a popular instant messaging app for Android serving over a billion registered users and growing!

Before we get started, it’s important to note that this app is a native Chinese app; if you’re looking to download an English version search for QQi (QQInternational). Not all features available in regular app will be available in the International version.

QQ is a must if you’re doing business, living in, and meeting friends in China and Southeast Asia! The app itself isn’t in English but it’s fairly intuitive to use and it can be vital for keeping in touch with people while on the go.

Group video is natively supported in the app, so you’ll be able to see all of your friends and family while you chat. This app also features a built-in translation tool that translates all of your text conversations in real time.

Share videos, photos, and files with friends, add exclusive emojis to text conversations and enjoy full-featured voice calling that keeps you in touch with people who matter.

Aside from some translation issues, QQ has just about everything you could want in a chat app! If you need an English version look for the International version of the app, instead.

Pros

  • Voice and Video Chat, Group Calling, and More QQ offers many great features including voice and video calling, group voice and video chat, file sharing, a built-in translator that supports dozens of languages, etc.
  • Over 1,000,000,000 Registered Users With over 1 billion users, QQ is easily one of the most used chat-apps in the world (and definitely #1 in Asia!)
  • The Best Way to Chat in China If you’re studying, doing business, or traveling in China, this app is the best way to keep in touch.

Cons

  • App is in Chinese If you can’t read Chinese, look for the QQInternational app instead!

  • BLUETOOTH: Allows applications to connect to paired bluetooth devices.
  • BLUETOOTH_ADMIN: Allows applications to discover and pair bluetooth devices.
  • BROADCAST_STICKY: Allows an application to broadcast sticky intents. These are broadcasts whose data is held by the system after being finished, so that clients can quickly retrieve that data without having to wait for the next broadcast.
  • CHANGE_CONFIGURATION: Allows an application to modify the current configuration, such as locale.
  • CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to change network connectivity state.
  • CHANGE_WIFI_MULTICAST_STATE: Allows applications to enter Wi-Fi Multicast mode.

  • DISABLE_KEYGUARD: Allows applications to disable the keyguard if it is not secure.
  • EXPAND_STATUS_BAR: Allows an application to expand or collapse the status bar.
  • GET_TASKS: This constant was deprecated in API level 21. No longer enforced.

  • READ_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to read the sync settings.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES: Allows an application to request installing packages. Apps targeting APIs greater than 22 must hold this permission in order to use ACTION_INSTALL_PACKAGE.

  • UNINSTALL_SHORTCUT: This permission is no longer supported.
  • USE_FINGERPRINT: Allows an app to use fingerprint hardware.
  • VIBRATE: Allows access to the vibrator.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
