Top alternatives to WhatsApp messaging app By - November 24, 2021

Texting has become akin to the lifeblood of the millennials and people texting or messaging has become ubiquitous. Sending a message via one of the many chatting applications has almost made the email an obsolete method of communicating over the internet. Chatting applications afford the users the freedom to send a message to whoever they want to contact while being on the move, without the hassles of logging into an email account and then entering a valid email address and then sending a message. Chatting applications also afford people the privilege of communicating in real time. 

With the advent of smartphones access to internet and chatting applications has become easier than ever before. In June this year WhatsApp turned 7 years old and now boasts of an almost 1 Billion users base from across the world. The messaging app revolutionised the way we communicate with our family, friends, colleagues etc. via our smartphones. While almost all the people in your contact list use WhatsApp and your phone keeps buzzing each second by the notifications from your contacts and various groups formed by them, you might find it a bit overwhelming at times and consider switching to a different app to get a breather. Or just try out some other App just for a change. So, today we are listing the best alternatives to WhatsApp that offer other features as well those offered by WhatsApp. Here is the list:
