Moreover, the app offers multiple functionalities from the basic task of sending messages to making payments and other services. And it looks like the developers behind WeChat are now adding a unique or rather a new debatable feature which will allow users to file lawsuits.

Besides, the new update will allow users to sue people electronically by using the Tencent Messaging App. Users will also be able to submit documents, verify people's identity, pay legal fees through the built-in WeChat prosecution service platform operated by Beijing Haidian court.

Talking about the system, it will basically use Facial ID, Fingerprint recognition, and ID card system to identify a person and only then allow the access to the data. The Court has further stated that the new service will help "save time for the parties when resubmitting materials and lining up in banks to make payments. The parties will receive a notice via WeChat after the required materials are successfully filed." In addition, the Court has assured that the operations are well secured.

Meanwhile, WeChat is already used as people's official ID card in some Chinese provinces being able to replace the standard Chinese government ID card. As such, this new move comes at a time when the messaging app has a wide acceptance in the daily lives of Chinese people.
