An artificial intelligence (AI) conversation system developed by the team behind WeChat, China's most popular social media platform, made its debut Wednesday in Guangzhou, capital of south China's Guangdong Province.

The system, with a voice recognition function, will be able to provide easier access to music, weather, communication apps and mini-programs for ride-hailing, bike-sharing and online shopping, the design team said at the 2019 WeChat Open Course being held Jan. 9-10.

WeChat created more than 22 million jobs in the first three quarters 2018, among which 1.8 million were created by mini-programs, which covered 200 sub-industries, according to Tencent Holdings Ltd., the company that owns WeChat.

WeChat has over 1 billion monthly active users, with daily messaging of 45 billion, according to the company.
