There are many popular mobile chat applications available for Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and Microsoft Asha. Some of the commonly used instant messaging apps are WhatsApp, Line, Facebook messenger, Viber, U&Me Messenger, Hike, and WeChat. Out of these apps, U&Me Messenger is trending in the industry and placed among the top list of mobile chat applications.
Personally, I feel U&Me is awesome and a best alternative to WhatsApp, due to its innovative features, attractive User Interface that WhatsApp lacks. An interesting thing about U&Me Messenger is that users have the privilege of sending SMS texts to users who are not on U&Me (non U&Me users) for free of cost, all over the world. In addition, below are the bunch of interesting and cool feature of U&Me that made this app so special.
