QQ is an instant messaging bundle that offers users several unique options. Similar in some ways to traditional services such as WhatsApp, the main difference is that other forms of conversation are available. Users can also purchase virtual items with a digital currency called ‘Q coin.’
Main features and functions
QQ is a cross-platform package, so it is universally compatible with all major operating systems. Some basic features include chat and voice messaging, online gaming, movie streaming, microblogging, and shopping. It is, therefore, a much more versatile system when compared to more ‘generic’ options such as Skype.
The standard version of QQ can be downloaded and installed free of charge. However, access to more advanced platforms is available if the user pays a one-time fee. This newer add-on will help block some in-app advertising and offer other features, such as native downloadable ringtones for smartphones.
