October 2016 saw WeChat introduce the Ying drone: a quadcopter dedicated to streaming video footage via the Chinese social media app. Priced at USD 299, the drone has an on-board camera which can capture 4K video, with footage being streamed at 720HD quality. The fold-up drone weights less than one pound, and has a carrying case so that users can take the device around with them easily.
