If you are looking for a quick and easy way to communicate with friends, family members, or business associates then it’s important to know which messengers are on the phone. In this article we will discuss the most popular messaging apps that can be used in conjunction with your phone.
WhatsApp Messenger and Facebook Messenger
- First, let’s take a look at the most popular messaging apps: WhatsApp Messenger and Facebook Messenger. These two are very similar in that they both use your email address or phone number to log into the app. The difference is when you want to contact someone on Facebook, you need them to be friends with you first whereas if it’s an unknown person then with WhatsApp messages do not require any prior connection between each other.
-Both of these messengers offer free text and voice calls within their respective platforms but there may be charges for international calling depending on which country code is dialed. Texting features vary from one platform to another -WhatsApp has an unlimited amount of characters while FB only allows 160 free characters per message.
- Another popular app is Telegram. It has a slightly different feel from the others as it’s not really social media orientated like WhatsApp and FB, however there are plenty of features that make this messenger unique including cloud storage for messages and voice calls on computers. There are no advertisements or in-app purchases with Telegram which may be appealing to some people who would rather not have their information sold off to advertisers.
- Viber offers many of the same capabilities offered by other messaging apps but does offer several extra benefits such as video calling (not available on all devices), stickers, games and music downloads. All these can be accessed without any charges incurred unless you decide to buy bonuses through in-app purchase options!
What other messaging platforms exist?
KIK and Line are two more to consider. The former uses your mobile phone number or email address while the latter requires a username which can be anonymous if you choose not to register as an individual. Both of these apps have their own set of unique features that make them stand out from one another including games, music downloads, stickers, etc.
