In China, do you want to get a leg up on your competitors?
Possessing a QQ account may prove to be your most valuable asset.
QQ is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, with over 840 million users and a young (and lucrative) user base, making it one of the most popular social media platforms in the world.
Many enterprises in the West, on the other hand, are falling behind when it comes to establishing a presence on this potentially game-changing Chinese marketplace.
But, more specifically, how does one go about creating/registering a QQ account in English from outside of China?
Let’s take it step by step. In order to create a QQ account in English, there are two options available. Let us examine how to do it through the app.

How to register for a QQ account in English using the QQ App
You’ll need to complete the following steps in order to complete the QQ sign up procedure through the app:
1. Install the QQ application.
This section is straightforward. Open the app store on your mobile device and search for “QQ” before clicking on the “Download” button.
2. Launch the application
As soon as you start the QQ app, you’ll see that it’s only available in Chinese and can’t be translated into any other language. Take this as a warning, though: QQ remains a highly valuable platform despite this. You’ll just have to figure out how to get over the language barrier, which is where we come in.
It is necessary to accept the service agreement by selecting the option in the right-hand corner of the pop-up window, as shown in the illustration below.
3. Begin the QQ registration procedure
On the home screen, select “Register” from the drop-down menu. It’s the choice to the left of the white square on the left-hand side!
4. Enter your cell phone number (QQ registration)
At this point, you’ll need to confirm your mobile phone number in order for QQ to authenticate your account information.
It should be entered into the field below. Then click “OK” after selecting your country code from a drop-down menu.
Using Google Translate to translate your nation’s name into simplified Chinese is a good idea if you’re having trouble selecting your country code due to the Chinese UI. Copy the translation and then paste it into the country code search bar on the right side of the screen. After that, you’ll be presented with the option of selecting the appropriate country code.
5. Finalize the authentication procedure
Using your touchscreen, simply slide the puzzle piece into its proper position.
6. Confirm your cell phone number with the company
If you want to confirm your mobile phone number, you must first click the option in the blue box in the pop-up window.
7. Enter the verification code that was provided to your cell phone.
A text message with a one-time passcode will be issued to you once you’ve validated your mobile phone number with the system. Fill in the blanks with the following information:
8. Create a username and password for yourself
Finally, create your username and password by entering them into the appropriate fields on this page. The username should be entered first, followed by the password in the space beneath it.
Then, in the box that has been highlighted, click “Register,” and your QQ account will be ready to use.
Registration for a qq username
Creating a QQ account in English through the QQ website is described in detail below.
If you’d prefer to join up for QQ on your computer, that’s quite acceptable as well. In fact, because the desktop interface is available in English, it is significantly simpler. Hooray!
What you need to do is as follows:
Step 1: Go to the QQ desktop registration page and fill up the necessary information.
You’ll be directed to a page where you may join up for QQ in English if you click this link.
Step 2: Double-check your account information.
Simply complete the fields below and indicate that you understand and agree with the following:
Your chosen moniker (which will be your display name on QQ)
Number of a mobile phone (along with the relevant country code)
validation of your qq account
Step 3: Create an account with QQ
After you have completed the above information, click “Sign up now.” Make certain that you have also accepted the terms and conditions, which are located just below it.
Step 4: Verify your account after completing the qq signup process.
A few verification steps will be required, just as they are when signing up for QQ on your mobile device. QQ is a Chinese instant messaging service. These are some examples:
Putting the final piece of the puzzle in place (using your computer cursor)
One-time passcode verification for your mobile phone number is required (We have not tried QQ account verification with virtual phone number)
Once you’ve completed these steps, your QQ account will be registered and available to use on both the mobile and desktop versions of the QQ application.
To reiterate, only the PC version of QQ is available in English – the mobile app is not available in English. As a result, wherever possible, we encourage that you use Chinese QQ on your computer rather than the phone.
QQ International version account creation instructions as an alternative for users from other countries.
Even if the regular QQ app cannot be used in English, this does not imply that you will be forced to abandon the app altogether.
QQ International is, as its name implies, the global version of the QQ messaging service. It is accessible as an app as well as a desktop version. The primary difference between QQ and QQ International edition is that the latter is available in a greater number of languages and is specifically geared for users from other countries.
As a result, QQ International is ideal for international enterprises because it is simple to use and does not present the same significant language barrier as the Chinese program.
So, what is the best way to get started with the QQ International version?
Simply follow these simple steps, and you’ll be up and running in no time at all.
Step 1: Navigate to the QQ International website. To do so on your mobile device, first click here.
qq International is a website that caters to international visitors.
By clicking in the top right corner of the screen, as seen above, you can change the language settings to English.
Step 2: Select “Download” from the drop-down menu.
Following the completion of the translation of the website into English, you will be able to use the following download button:
International download of QQ
Simply click on it.
The next step is to decide which version of QQ International you wish to download.
There are two versions available: one for iOS and one for Android. (The Google Play Store for Android smartphones and the Apple App Store for iOS devices are two options.)

You may also scan the QR Code to begin the download process without having to do anything else.
Finished with the verification and authentication procedures. Step 4:
You’ll be required to fulfill the same security procedures as described before, which include placing the puzzle piece in the proper location and validating your mobile phone number with it.
The fifth step is to register for an account (or sign in to an existing one!)
The best part about the QQ International version is that you can log into it using your existing QQ credentials, which is quite convenient. If you’ve already made a QQ account (by following the steps outlined above), you’ll be able to log into QQ International without having to do anything else.
If you haven’t already done so, you’ll have to start at the beginning and create a username and password for yourself. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to utilize it across all QQ versions.

Additionally, you can upgrade your QQ (and QQ International) account to a VIP account, which has additional benefits. This will grant you access to a plethora of features and perks, including the removal of advertisements and access to exclusive VIP awards for frequent usage.
VIP membership costs 120 RMB per year, which is approximately $19.00 USD.
For a VIP account, go to this link on your mobile device and pick “Open Super Member” as the upgrade option.
Registration for a QQ VIP account
After that, you’ll be prompted to scan a QR code, which will open the VIP upgrade window on your QQ app as follows:
QR code for the QQ application
You can then follow the in-app steps to upgrade your account in a matter of seconds, provided you have both a Chinese debit card and a Chinese bank account. If you fail to do so, you will, regrettably, be disqualified from receiving VIP status.
Nonetheless, don’t be concerned – VIP membership is not required, and it will have no impact on your QQ marketing approach. It is primarily intended for personal use, rather than for commercial purposes.
