If you look into Google store we can find 100's of applications on messaging and communication. WhatsApp stands alone as the best only because is it simple and flawless. It has got very little bugs and is user friendly. I'm not saying WhatsApp is the only good messenger application, there are others too which has calling facility also.

Viber:
This is a fantastic application available in every store which provides customers with facilitates like Chatting, Data sharing and Calling. The main highlight of Viber is that i provides free calling facility.

Skype:
As everyone knows about Skype, it is a messenger application in which people can do verbal chat,written chat and video chat. Same as in PC,Skype comes for smartphones with all these facilities. With a good network connection we can talk face to face with our family,friends all around the world.

There are many other applications but these two are genuine and bug less compared to the other applications available in the Store.

The phenomenal and unprecedented success of WhatsApp has, in fact, made several messaging apps fade into oblivion, latest example being ChatON-the messaging service from Samsung which is going off in February according to reports. However, there still are some promising apps. Prominent among them are:

1. KIK
This is also a cross OS app like WhatsApp that has around 80 million users worldwide. It supports image sending, group chats and downloadable emoticons. You can create and send memes which is a unique feature. The best part is that it is completely personal and private, you don't need to share your phone number or email ID -just create a username and chat.

2. SNAPCHAT
This app has gone popular because of its ability to send and receive really quickly and privately. The images you send or receive do not stay (unless you save them) as the app has a self destruct timer feature.

3. FACEBOOK MESSENGER
The best feature that would attract you to this app is its integration with Facebook. It can send messages to all or a selection of your Facebook friends. You can also send images and voice messages.
One more interesting feature with this app is ChatHead which is a small round floating picture that sits on all running apps indicating new messages.

4. VIBER
VIBER helps you make video calls and IM conversations. It integrates with your contacts list just like WhatsApp does.
Best part of VIBER is that you can have a chat with celebrities or organizations, like the Twitter.

5. LINE
This is one of the new entrants in the messaging arena, that helps you engage in free messaging and calls. With over 75 million users, it is giving tough completion to the older players. It scans your contact list and automatically adds those who are LINE members. It also has a time line feed to act as a social network.

6. HIKE
It is the first Indian messaging app developed by Bharti SoftBank. This works like WhatsApp, but the unique feature is that if the user is offline when the message is sent,the app sends SMS. The UI of the app is simple and clean.
It has a NUDGE feature which is similar to Poke in Facebook.

7. WECHAT
Again a cross platform service, Wechat is popular in China. It allows you send text, videos, images and also supports voice and video calls.
