SMS was once the best adopted means of communication in the text messages domain - and it continues to be so for many users using cell phones not supporting Android technology. But for those with Android based phones, the choice is ever widening and expanding.
As the year 2016 dawns, we look around a number of messenger services which not only provide text messaging services, but now also a major source of telephony and video communication as well - again all for free.
I for myself am using these magic apps for communicating and taking advantage of these free services. And I am lucky to be using some of the top of the line messenger services, top ten of which are listed below:
- Facebook Messenger
- Google Hangouts
- Signal Private Messenger
- BBM (BlackBerry Messenger)
I have listed my choice of messenger apps above. Since we are normally using Facebook, it is easier to get connect to Facebook Messenger while surfing through Facebook messages. But Skype, WhatsApp and Viber are equally robust and popular among users. Google Hangouts is also a fairly popular app which provides messaging, free voice calling, free video chatting for free. Kik is one app where you can hide your identity by using a username as against your actual.
What is your favourite platform for texting and chatting?
