1. Snapchat

Snapchat has now become of the most commonly used social apps in the world. Users can chat through snaps, which last for a certain period of time, and then they disappear. You can also chat if you want, how the messages also disappear once you close the window after reading them.  You can tap on the message that you do not want to disappear after you have closed the window.

2. Whatsapp

Whatsapp is undoubtedly one of the most popular chatting apps in the world. To create an account, you have to provide a cellphone number, after which you can talk to your friends, as well as send them unlimited pictures and videos. Recent update has also allowed users to make a call directly from the messenger itself.

3. Kik Messenger

Kik is another chatting app that is becoming increasingly common, particularly amongst the teenagers. Unlike Whatsapp, the messenger does not require a cellphone number; instead it requires a user name and password that users can create for free.

4. Facebook Messenger

It won’t be wrong to say that Facebook is the most popular social networking app in the world, but its messenger is becoming increasingly common too. The messenger is unique as its messages appear in a small bubble.  So no matter what you are doing on your android device, if somebody texts you, a bubble will appear on top of the screen. You can also move the bubble around so it doesn’t block anything on the screen. Facebook messengers also let you call (or video call) all your friends, if they are using the same messenger.


Viber is another extremely common chatting app that lets you call and text your friend anywhere in the world. The app also allows users to make video calls. Like Whatsapp, Viber too requires a cellphone number.
