Instant Messaging Clients supported on Android

Instant Messaging Clients supported on Android

There are many Instant Messenger clients today and some of them even have their own Android App. However each comes with different set of permissions and security clearance, each consumes precious memory and CPU, running constantly in the background and eating away your battery. What if you can have all these Instant Messenger with a single app? We are talking about Jabber (XMPP), GTalk, Windows Live Messenger, QIP, Live Journal, VKontakte, Ya.Online and one I can’t even spell. Did I mention it supports Facebook as well?

Xabber IM Client with Light Theme

I am talking about Xabber, a free Android App which provides all of them above. We also use it to connect with our corporate XMPP server.

All the online contacts are visible like any chat clients and you can search. It is easy to maintain multiple chat connections. The only thing I didn’t like was the black background but while writing this I realized I can change the Theme to Light.

Xabber serves a strong need, is well made and free. Good job guys!

In the next article I will specifically talk about how you can replace Facebook Messenger in Android with Xabber, but without the security risks.

Let me know your experience in Instant Messaging on Android. I find it very useful.

PS. I am in no way associated with Xabber, this article is merely highlight a good product and we will continue to do so in future.
