Instant messaging (IM) apps are a must-have tool on any smartphones as it allows you to send text and voice messages using your data connection to bypass cellular SMS, MMS or cellular call charges.
With the emergence of smartphones, the IM software clients which were popular for desktop use have taken a backstage.
Substituting their place are mobile instant messaging apps and the most popular among all now is certainly WhatsApp Messenger.
WhatsApp, of which company acquired by Facebook in 2014 at a whopping cost of more than US$19 billion, is the most widely used instant messaging app worldwide and has achieved more than 1 billion installs at the Google Play Store.
Unlike an SMS which you can send to anyone with a phone, an instant message needs the same app between two parties or in a group to communicate with.
Due to this, you probably will find that installing one IM app like WhatsApp is not good enough on your mobile as one of your contacts may use another app. But using the most popular WhatsApp will get you started to connect to most of your contacts who will likely be using the same app around the world.
This app works across multiple platforms for Android, iOS, Windows and Blackberry mobile devices. It also has a desktop version for Windows or Mac OS X system and a Web version for you to use in any supported web browsers. Check out the link below for more details about WhatsApp Messenger.
