Oddly enough, the instant messaging and chat app segment is not sufficiently saturated, and new such apps keep mushrooming... we assume the idea is to displace WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, LINE, or Viber, to mention just a few of the dozens that exist currently. This is precisely what the developers of BiP must think, claiming their piece of the pie.
Beyond instant messaging
This is a messaging app that includes exciting features beyond being a mere chat with your contacts. These are the most important of these features:
- Send text messages.
- Send multimedia files such as photos and videos.
- Share location with privacy control.
- Create groups of contacts.
- Send SMS and MMS for those contacts who don't have BiP.
- Functions to call to mobile and landlines and make video calls.
- Create and monitor information channels.
- Translate texts and recordings.
- Fax function.
This app offers a good interface design and interesting functions like the ones we have mentioned, which has helped them get a fair share of users, especially in Turkey. It is a good second or third alternative to apps like the ones mentioned above, especially WhatsApp.
