Recently, the IOS version of QQ has been updated with 8.0.0. From the description of the latest version of QQ in the app store, we can see that this QQ update not only updates the QQ interface, but also optimizes the experience of multi-user voice and forwarding messages. In addition, the voice message also adds a progress bar to support pause and progress drag. What are the upgrades and changes of the latest version of QQ? This article brings you the specific content of qq8.00 version in IOS. Let's have a look.
Interface and icon upgrades
1. Login interface
After upgrading to version 8.0.0 for IOS, you can clearly see that the input box in the login interface changes from the previous horizontal line to rounded corner. After you fill in the account password, the gray arrow under the input box will be "lit" as a blue arrow with dynamic effect.
It looks simpler and more scientific.

2. Message page
In addition to the login interface, you can obviously feel the changes in icons after entering QQ.
We set QQ as the default theme. You can see that on the message page, your avatar and friends' Avatar are reduced, the menu icon at the bottom is changed, and the ground glass effect is added; After clicking the "+" in the upper right corner, you can see that the function icon increases significantly and changes from the previous hollow to solid.

3. Personal information page
Originally, when you swipe the screen to the right in the message page, an unpaved personal setting page will appear. In the latest 8.0.0 for IOS, the personal setting page will be displayed in full screen, the operation logic remains unchanged, and the button layout appears more "atmospheric" - the spacing increases, the icon effect is unified, and the graphics and text are more exquisite.

4. Chat interface
Not only the input box in the login interface becomes rounded, but also the input box in the chat interface becomes rounded. If you are a loyal user of QQ, you may not adapt to the change of chat background color.
In addition, the "chat settings" icon in the upper left corner of the chat interface has changed. After clicking to enter the chat settings page, the layout changes are similar to the personal information page.
When you open the extended menu bar of QQ chat interface, you may also be surprised at the changes on each icon, which is adjusted from the previous single color to gradient or colorful effect, adding a trace of liveliness.

5. Dynamic page
The change of dynamic page should be liked by many users. The search input box is rounded, the function spacing is increased, and the "nearby" and "interest tribe" are no longer so eye-catching.

In addition to the above pages, settings and other pages also have upgrades on the interface, which will not be explained in detail one by one.
Voice message supports pause and progress drag
The emergence of this function is really exciting. The long-awaited "voice progress bar" function on wechat was realized first on QQ. After the experience, we summarize this function as follows:
The display effect of voice message is changed when it is sent. Voice message is displayed in the form of spectrum. When voice playback is suspended, a progress bar is added and dragging is supported

Whether you use voice change, intercom or recording to send voice messages to each other or receive voice messages from each other, the above effects are supported. It is worth mentioning that the voice message sent through "voice change" will be dotted with several small stars.

The preview pop-up window cannot be edited when forwarding pictures
The updated description of the app store mentions "optimizing the experience of forwarding messages". In fact, QQ has omitted a practical function for this "optimization".
In QQ 7.9.9 and below, you can edit pictures when forwarding them; However, in QQ 8.0.0 for IOS, the image forwarding operation becomes similar to wechat. You can only attach a message and cannot edit the image.
Why didn't wechat make a "voice progress bar"?
Since February last year, it has been widely rumored on the Internet that wechat is testing the "voice progress bar" function internally, and most users hold a supportive attitude. From everyone's feedback on this matter, most people expressed "disgust" at the long voice of almost 60 '.
However, if you search the word "voice" in the official small program "wechat rumor refutation assistant", you can see that wechat has refuted the rumor in February 2018, making it clear that it has not conducted internal testing of relevant functions.

Even if the user group has a very high voice for the "voice progress bar", and even if the function launched by bullet SMS, which was very popular last year, has been highly praised, wechat has never acted as a social product that may know voice messages best. Why?
Of course, if you just add a "voice progress bar" as shown in the figure above, I personally don't think it's necessary - voice messages are different from videos. They can correspond to the number of frames and determine the position you want to drag. You can only "tune to a position first and listen to a section".
QQ provides a solution to this problem, that is, it directly changes the form of voice messages, and presents the voice with a "picture feeling" in the form of spectrum (the higher the voice is, the longer the vertical line is), which is convenient for positioning.

This is a good method, but in practical application, "voice progress bar" is still a low-frequency demand. Maybe you will be more practical when listening to the voice (actually, you can turn the voice into text if you need to listen to the voice), but if you receive the voice for the first time, you will finish listening to the voice out of curiosity or fear of missing information.
No voice progress bar is also closely related to the design principles advocated by Zhang Xiaolong. Zhang Xiaolong has always said that there is no "restraint" in wechat's dictionary. He is doing the right thing. In the general over marketing environment, wechat's so-called "doing the right thing" may mean abandoning many things that seem taken for granted.
