Apparently, newly registered users cannot use the WeChat web application. Trying to log in by scanning a QR-code gives the following message: (*)
For account security, newly registered WeChat accounts are unable to log in to Web WeChat. To use WeChat on a computer, use Windows WeChat or Mac WeChat at http://wechat.com
How long does it take for a new user to be able to use the web version?
(*) Note: the notification may be absent when trying to log in via a third party Google Chrome application (or other)
There is no use, I got an account earlier than June 2017. It wont let me login and state that "for your safety you're not allowed to log in web" I think they are just forcing people to download actual application on pc for some reason.

You can translate "newly created accounts" to "accounts created after June 2017" – it seems they've basically grandfathered the web client, you'll never be allowed to log in to the WeChat for web unless you obtain an old account or they change this policy.

My account is about 2 years old and is identity verified. I still get this message if I try to use web chat.
I somehow think the message should be regarded as "Web Client WeChat is no longer supported"
