There are thousand of applications for messaging on android phones. So much that it only ends up confusing you. Some are very basic while some have features that can blow your mind. However, in the world where simplicity sells the most there are few applications that will just do the job for you without you having to turn into a technology wizard. Here are some of the best messaging applications for your android tablets:

Whatsapp is by far the most popular

A messenger is as good as its network and whatsapp is the best in that regard. The world is on Whatsapp and it is easy to use. It allows you to use the contact number of the person to send and receive messages. You can also send voice notes by pressing the voice note button. Millions of people are using whatsapp around the world and it allows you to send and receive messages without any additional costs. Just your basic data plan is more than enough for you to start using the application.

BBM is finally on Android

At one point of time, it was often humorously said that if the person is constantly looking down on his smart phone/tablet, he is most probably using BBM. However, now this application is just not limited to people with boring and cumbersome blackberry phones. Blackberry announced the launch of its application for android phones and tablets too. The best part about blackberry is that it is simple to use and is very consumer friendly. The edge of blackberry over whatsapp is that you can see when the message is delivered denoted by the sign “D” and when has the other person actually read the message denoted by the sign “R”. This free application also uses your basic data plan and is free of cost.

 

Facebook messenger has the maximum reach

With more than a billion people using facebook, it is the best way to reach out to your friends. It allows you to send and receive messages to almost anyone who is using facebook. However, you can also go offline if you want to or block some people from messaging you while chatting with others. These features are not provided by whatsapp and BBM. In Whatsapp, you have to completely block the person out in order to stop receiving messages from that person. In facebook, you can be online to some of your friends while showing as offline to the others. Moreover, facebook also allows you to video chat with the person if you have skype installed.

All three of these applications can do the job for you. However, choosing the right one will depend entirely on your preferences and usage. For example, if you want to have more control in your social life then you can go for facebook as it allows you to go online and offline. Similarly, if you want to know if the person has received your message and read it then BBM is a good option.
