Messenger Apps are an integral part of our lives. However, it is very difficult to say which messenger service is used by which types of people. Not every pimply teenager has Snapchat on his phone, and not every cynical data security skeptic communicates exclusively via Threema. There is a wide range of services available today, many of which combine an appealing design with the promise of protecting chat history data.

The world's most popular Messenger Apps, according to pure user numbers, are:

  • Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp share first and second place in the global messenger market.
  • WeChat and QQ, two messengers that are mainly popular in Asia, follow immediately afterwards.
  • Apple's iMessage, Skype, Viber, Snapchat, Telegram and other services may have a less broad, but loyal clientele.

We at Paessler have been sharing certain parts of our content via WhatsApp.

Why WhatsApp? Well, we are a German company, and in Germany the numbers are slightly different to the global figures above. WhatsApp is by far the number 1 messenger app in Germany.

Please Take a Minute

Today we would like to find out if our readers might prefer other messengers. Please take a minute and share your opinion in our survey. Some reasons for the pre-selection made here: We have excluded smaller services such as Threema, as well as messengers that are almost exclusively known in Asia, but not in the West. The remaining, and therefore listed here as a choice, are: Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, iMessage, Skype, Viber, Snapchat and Telegram. If you don't find the Messenger App of your choice in this selection, please write us in the comments.

Thanks, you are awesome!
