It also has what it refers as the next generation video calling in the pipeline. It works on a phone number system and doesn’t require the receiving person to have the app installed unlike many other messaging apps. It also has incorporated material design to its full glory.

Facebook Messenger

Yeah, while you may not be expecting this but it’s an essential app just because it connects you with all your Facebook friends. It also has all the basic features a messaging app is expected to have including MMS and emoji support. The official app is a battery drainer and it would be great if you could find a third party app for messenger.

YAATA SMS

This is another feature rich app that has attracted many users all over the world. It offers features such as scheduled messages, full MMS support and also group chat support. If you are willing to pay a bit and purchase in-app features, you also get auto forwarding, auto respond, SMS backlist etc. It also has great looks as it incorporates material design.

Chomp SMS

Chomp SMS is one of the oldest text messaging apps out there on Android. It offers everything a good messaging app should have in its sleeve including rich emojis, SMS blocking, quick reply in notification panel, group chats and MMS. There’s a great feature that lets you stop a message after you have hit the sent button. It can be a godsend feature for some. There is support for Android Wear and Pushbullet too if you were wondering.

Conclusion:
