Although the instant messaging and chat app for smartphones par excellence is WhatsApp, there are many alternatives: Telegram, LINE, imo, Facebook Messenger, and among all these, we can also find Zalo.

Instant messaging, video and voice calls, and a personal timeline

Zalo is an app for chatting that allows us to communicate with our contacts beyond instant messaging, thanks to the fact that it was conceived from the beginning with the VoIP protocol in mind. So we are not limited to text messages, as we can communicate through voice and video calls, thus making it an alternative to other apps and services such as Viber or Skype. In addition, users also have the possibility of treating their profile as a social network, as the app gives them a space where they can post and share stories, links, or even blog entries.

Designed with a simple interface, it takes only a minute to set up a profile to communicate with all your contacts using the app. These are its main features:

  • Send text messages with support for voice messages, stickers, images, videos, files, and more.
  • VoIP protocol for 1-to-1 and group calls and video calls.
  • Timeline where you can share content such as images, videos, links, personal blog entries, and more.
  • Complete control over friend requests, message reception, calls by other users, and privacy options for the content posted on your timeline.
  • Integration with other social networks such as Facebook.

No doubt that we are talking about a very good chat app for Android. However, it has a downside shared with other apps of this kind: most of your contacts use WhatsApp, and they most likely are not willing to stop using it any time soon.
