Don’t Receive Messages on People Nearby
If you don’t receive messages on People Nearby, it means you are having a bug on the application. The feature is very buggy on the app. We got these reports about the feature so far:
- I Don’t See People on WeChat Nearby
- People Can’t See Me on WeChat Nearby
- People Can’t Add Me on WeChat
You have another bug which won’t be fixed for years because we know that some of those errors couldn’t resolved by WeChat team. Especially those two “Don’t see” problems couldn’t be resolved about 4 years.
What You Can Do to Fix It?
There are some ways to fix this problem. Firstly assign a new WeChat ID and a new WeChat Name for your account. You can see details on here: How to Change WeChat ID (Steps for Android and iOS with Pictures). We prepared it for WeChat ID but you will also see the name on the settings. You can change the name with similar ways.
Additionally you can also try reinstall WeChat. This will help you to fix corrupted files on your device about WeChat messenger. You can check all guides which we provided above as tutorial and Q&A pages. There are much information for resolve this situation on those pages.
Since it is a common problem of everyone on WeChat, we also recommend you to contact WeChat support. Unfortunately documentation for troubleshooting of People Nearby is not very good enough.
