Signal private messenger is definitely my favorite for many reasons, privacy is protected and overall is the best messaging app, easy to use, reliable and does what it claims to do. The only thing I wish is that more people were aware of what this app does and how it protects your privacy and security of your messages when both you and the recipient of yours or their messages are using the Signal App for their messages , texts etc. because they are encrypted. Thanks Signal for a great app.

Enter key is Gone when starting a conversation. I’m using it on my S10Plus. You have to send the message first to the recipient before you can use the Enter Key by Editing the sent message. You cannot send messages just like the normal way we use to do it. Please have it fix, you will get the 5Five Stars after. 4 stars until it is fix
3. Google Duo
Google Duo is the highest quality video calling app. It’s simple, reliable, and works across Android and iOS phones and tablets, smart devices, and on the web.
I like using Duo because it’s simple, reliable, and uncluttered. lt’s very funny because I used the two words “simple” and “reliable” before I read its description in “About This App”, because those words came to my mind in describing my feelings about Duo. I want a video app that is used first and foremost, easily and reliably to video chat. That’s all. I can text and send photos separately. I’m sure there are some bugs to always fix but keep it simple, reliable, and uncluttered.

Love the “unsend” feature; very useful for seniors with blurred eyesights as we often make mistake in sending messages to wrong chat rooms. Would very much appreciate a “bulk-delete” messages feature on line chat rooms on pc version, just like on mobile version. Presently we can only delete one message at a time. If that chat room has dozens of members then it’s quite troubling deleting some of those messages one by one. I don’t want to delete chat history, only some messages and photos.
With WhatsApp, you’ll get fast, simple, secure messaging and calling for free, available on phones all over the world.
Some of your most personal moments are shared on WhatsApp; its end-to-end encryption into the latest versions of the app keeps your personal moments safe. When end-to-end encrypted, your messages and calls are secured so only you and the person you’re communicating with can read or listen to them, and nobody in between, not even WhatsApp.
All in all very good App, just one thing that makes up upset, when I listen to a message and try to bring the phone close to my ears it cuts out, I don’t always listen to voice notes through my earphones, I sometimes like to listen to voice notes through the speaker, but it’s frustrating when it cuts out, please improve this feature.

This app does what it needs to for my purposes for the most part, but I noticed that you can have up to 3 accounts on iOS, MacOS, and Windows, but only two on Android, and I could use that third account on Android. Are there any plans to change that?

I use it predominantly for my provincial meetings influencing matters of access, inclusion and medical research. It runs on all my devices. I envisioned this technology as early as 2005. It arrived sometime after 2015, but by 2017 was avalible to all including me. Now since late 2018 we slowly converted into vertual groups locally, Zoom keeps the groups and communities connected, collectivly working towards diverse projects. Thank you Zoom, Keep evolving better!
