    Re: Preferred Messaging Service?

    I use Line due to circumstance and also as no one has it I have an excuse not to communicate with people.

    Having said that I use hangouts seeing as I have an android phone and so a gmail account.

    The thing I have noticed about these programs, for calls are they all seem so quiet and seem to suffer from hearing your voice back. Does any particular one have louder volume when using it like a normal phone?

    I have a bigger issue with functionality & accessibility - what features does the messaging tool have, who can I talk to on it, how does it work as i move around devices etc.....so as a result, my friends and I all migrated away from WhatsApp to telegram well over a year ago.

    Whats app is far too limiting - stuck to one device, the "on the web" PC app is just awful and still relies on your phone...and for a long time it had limited features and still lags behind it's competition. The multi device compatibility is the big one for me - I can use telegram on my PC, then swap to my phone, back to tablet etc with no issues. That is not currently possible with WhatsApp.

    I still have to use WhatsApp for some of my family where it would be hard to get them to switch over.....but for most situations, I try and avoid it.
    I too have moved to Telegram since I found out about WhatsApp's new privacy policy update and a few days ago I heard about bip app in the news. What do you think of this app?

    I hadn't heard of Signal but did install Telegram the other day, although only to follow a bot for buying a graphics card. I doubt I'd be able to get my friends to switch over as they probably don't care enough.

    Dammit, did I say Messaging? That explains the strange replies.


    Oh, wait. no ..... wrong forum. Wrong site. And I'm not me. I'm him. um, .... oh, bother.

    Well well Keithy V we've rumbled you at last. We should have guessed something was up when you started that thread on washing machine sales in the classifieds... Especially when you seemed more bothered about the best type of powder than the mechanics of the thing! Now run along and give Saracen his account back, there's a good chap. We'll pretend none of this ever happened, except for the prolonged public ribbing and satirical news quiz shows still repeating on Dave for years to come yet
