First in this list comes WhatsApp Messenger for Android smartphones. It uses 3G or WiFi to message with your friends and you even receive messages, pictures, videos for free. All these services are provided for free only for the first year and later one need to pay $0.99 USD per year after. All you need is an internet connection to use this app and chat with your friends.

In my opinion this is one of the best apps,it is very convenient lets you be in touch with anybody around the world.



Viber is the next best Android app used widely to send free messages and calls. It is also available for Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Phone and many more devices and platforms. In Viber, the phone number acts as your Viber ID and it syncs with the contact list in your mobile and also detects the contacts having viber automatically. More features of Viber are:

Skype is one of the most popular Android app to share free voice and video calls to others. Free messages can be sent using Android smartphone to other phone or even Mac or PC. It features:

  • Send messages, pictures, videos to other contacts who are on Skype
  • Send low cost calls and messages to mobiles not on Skype
  • High Quality sound for the calls sent and received on Skype
  • Face to face talk using front and rear facing cameras
  • Talk to your Windows Live Messenger friends on Skype by signing in with Microsoft account.
  • Record a video and send to friends and family on Skype, even when they’re unavailable.



Kakao is another popular Android messenger to make free calls and messages. One can make group calls in high-quality sound and schedule appointments in their chat room. Some of its features:

  • Supports Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows OS, Bada
  • Schedule appointments, lunches, gatherings

Tango is one of the best communication and text android app of the year. It provides the highest quality phone calls, texts, photo & video sharing, games and more entirely for free.

  • There is no need to use login and password
  • Free calls and messages internationally
  • Enjoy quality calls on 3G and 4G
  • Play games during calls with friends
  • Group chat with friends

Indeed it is the best audio video software I have tried. Clear voice, rarely cut and good video quality and it needs a recording button 2 record the calls. Overall it is better than Skype and Viber.
