Skype is mostly used for free voice and video calls.
However, if your connection is not that good, you can use Skype as a text messenger.
It lets you send free text messages, voice messages, attach short videos and pics.
Even without a Facebook account, you can sign up for Messenger and add contacts by entering phone numbers manually or from your contact list.
Here you can also change conversation windows background and send cute stickers. Telegram is a popular messenger developed by Pavel Durov, a founder of popular Russian social network VK.
It claims to have the strongest protection of your personal conversations and data.
It’s possible to choose one of the available images or set a personal one.
