mobile in hand - 4 Different Communication Apps to Consider

First we have Facebook Messenger. This is quite convenient to many, because they and their friends have Facebook already.

Like most of the messaging apps, there are add-ons and features for messenger. A person can send GIF messages, voice messages, and videos.

Recently, the Facebook team has updated the design of the app. It has taken quite a minimalist approach as it reduces the number of tabs you need to click to move around the different features.

More than anything though, the Facebook team seems to understand the value of 1 on 1 communication. It will be interesting if this tenet will steer their communication app to the top.


Viber can be seen as the king of convenience. It is easy to install and set up, and then you are off to the communication races.

The Viber app has its own marketplace. Here, you can buy unique stickers and emoticons. It has also security and chat encryption for more safety.

Recently, the Viber team has just released Viber for Business that is great for businessmen and working people on the go.

Next up, we have Slack. Slack is actually a communication tool that is perfect for work. Apart from the chatting and the chat rooms that you can make, it is also host to a scheduling feature, some project management tools, and more.


Finally comes Telegram. This messaging app is the most secured one. It has encrypted messaging and is very secure.

One feature is that your message deleted after some minutes, so no one else can read it afterwards. This also makes it the perfect messaging app for you to talk about sensitive information or share sensitive materials.

These are only a few communication apps for you to consider. Whatever it is you choose, you should select the one that works the best for you.
