WhatsApp Alternative Apps in India: Don’t want to use WhatsApp, then take a look at these apps

WhatsApp Alternative in India: This instant messaging app has been facing criticism since the release of WhatsApp’s new privacy policy. The controversy has arisen over the security of users’ data, where people believe that WhatsApp will now share their data with Facebook. Let us know that Facebook is the parent company of WhatsApp and the social media giants have already stood in the dock many times in the past on the privacy of the user. However, due to escalation of the dispute and due to large number of migration, WhatsApp also issued a clarification and assured the people that the new privacy policy is only for business account. They will not have any effect on any person. Now still, if you are looking for another instant messaging app (WhatsApp Alternative Apps) instead of WhatsApp, then let us know that there are many such apps in the market, which you can use in lieu of WhatsApp. Out of these, you may have heard the name of apps like Signal, Telegram, Kik many times before, but there are still many such messaging apps, which you may have never heard of before. So without delay, let’s look at 8 such top apps that you can use instead of WhatsApp.


You will be hearing this name from the next day of the arrival of new privacy policy. The app has also been advised to be used by many veterans. Signal is not a new app. It is an end-to-end encryption messaging app, which focuses on privacy and is used by many large institutions worldwide including journalists, security experts. The app brings many security features as compared to WhatsApp. It has the option of ‘automatically deleting messages’. Due to the Screen Security feature, no person can take a screenshot of your chat. Every file sent to Signal is encrypted. Signal section of Signal in Apple App Store clearly states that this app does not collect any type of user data. However, it does not get the status update feature, which can be frustrating for some users.


Telegram is gaining the most popularity in India after Signal. Although the app is already popular, but in the last few days, the app has been downloaded by millions of new users. It is an open-source app and is a better option for people having special group chats. Explain that you can create a group of 1 lakh people in Telegram. Not only this, files up to 1.5 GB can be shared in it. Like Signal, Telegram also has a self-destructing message feature, which automatically deletes the user’s message. This app also comes with end-to-end encryption. Another major feature is that in Telegram you can use your same account on multiple platforms simultaneously. However, video calling support is not available in it.


Viber is a messaging and VoIP app that comes with end-to-end encryption. It provides encryption for calls, messages and shared media files. The app gives the option to run the same account on more than one device, which is not available in WhatsApp. However WhatsApp is working fast on this feature and in the coming days we can see this feature in WhatsApp as well. Voice and video calling features are also available in the app. The special thing is that thanks to the Viber Out feature, you can also make international calls to non-viber users through the app at a very low price. There is also a store for stickers and you can play small games inside the app itself.


The Discord app has been popular in the gaming world for years. Gamers can use this app for chat. However, its DM feature makes it a great alternative to chatting. Through this, you can send emojis, emots, GIFs, photos and even documents to your friends. Like Google Duo video calling app, you can share your screen in this app too. Voice and video calling facilities are also available. Discord gives you a choice of apps like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, Twitch, Steam and GitHub within the app itself. A maximum of 10 people can be formed in it. For more than this you can create a server, as every gamer does.


The biggest feature of Kik messaging app is that you do not have to register your mobile number to use it. Yes, you can run Kik app through your email id. There is hardly anything better than privacy. The app is a great option for those who want to avoid registering their number in the app or sharing their own. If you want to share your account to someone, for that you can share your username created in the app. It has all the chat options like whatsapp. You can also share pictures and videos in it and also there is a group chat option in it. There is a bot in it, through which you can extract news, tips, mini games etc. from the Internet within the app itself.
