This day in age it is important to be able to reach someone instantly, especially when it comes to business. But sometimes things get in the way of a simple phone call or even a text. You can improve communication with messaging apps, all you need is a Wi-Fi connection and a Smartphone. These top apps happen to be free and easy ways to connect with people you need to reach instantly.
Traveling abroad can make it difficult to communicate between international offices. You can avoid long distance charges and complex SMS texting with WhatsApp. The app is very popular among travelers because it is free and just needs a Wi-Fi connection, no international plans required! Not only does WhatsApp have text message capabilities, it also offers voice calls and can send photos.
If you are already using all of Google’s products, then you can improve communication with Google’s messaging app, Hangouts. Hangouts works well with Google Voice, so if you already have an established number with Google Voice, then Hangouts is the perfect free app. With Hangouts, you are able to send SMS messages, make calls, video calls and of course use as an instant messenger. The app can sync with your phone’s contacts and make it is easy to instantly communicate. You can also receive and make calls through Hangouts if it is connected to your Google Voice number, that way you do not actually have to be near the actual phone associated with that number. This app is ideal to use to reach someone across the room or across the country.
Another reason to use Facebook for your business is to use the Facebook Messenger. This comes in handy when you are unable to reach someone via text or if you do not have their contact information, but arefriends on Facebook. It is also a tool that you can use to network and exchange important contact information. It also has features like voice and video call. If you want to take a break from Facebook, you can deactivate your account and link messenger to your phone number. That way you can still use all of the user-friendly features that messenger offers, without having to use your Facebook.
There are several options when it comes to improving communication with messaging apps. And with technology always getting better, before you know it, you will have even more choices with more features.
