How to Build/Create an Instant Messaging App, Android, Application, iOS App Like Whatsapp, Viber, WeChat, Facebook Messanger, LINE, Kik?


I stumbled upon a pre-loaded chat solution that offers customization provisions as well. Sounded quite good.
Here it is : ( )

Can anyone suggest more readymade chat solutions like this one to make a good comparison of sorts.

Why not? There is plenty of online readymade solution in the Market. Contus Fly is one of the best chat app solutions provides full customization rather than security, reliability, free source code access and much more. Experience on Contus Fly, make your own app and glow it to fly.

I saw many articles on Google with a ready-made solution, but unfortunately, I lost links to them, but I know that in this article “How Much Does It Cost to Create An App Like WhatsApp In 2019?” on the Cleveroad site there is a good overview of what a WhatsApp consists of, I think it will be useful to you, maybe you can then google it in parts !!
