The separate app, named Qiye Weixin in Chinese, is currently under beta testing and is expected to be rolled within the next couple of months.

“With WeChat being widely adopted in everyday life, more people have been discussing work-related subjects on WeChat with colleagues when they are off-work. While some enjoy it, some others find it a burden because WeChat mixes up their personal life and work,” a statement from the company read, adding that the new service aims to help people enjoy a better work-life balance.

Analysts say this is Tencent's (owners of WeChat) latest move to tap into the Chinese trillion-yuan enterprise software market.

Tencent built its business empire on developing social networking tools and introduced its first enterprise used instant messaging tool RTX in 2003.

WeChat launched in January 2011 and currently has over 1.2 billion registered users (WhatsApp what?).
