    Telegram is an open source messaging service which is similar to whatsapp but has additional capability of being encrypted. I am shifting to it, try it out. As tech enthusiasts it is important we have stuff which normies doesn't use that much.
    It is available for desktops as well, which makes it even better.

    I was about to start a thread for instant messaging that I can use on a desktop as well. Much easier to be in touch when working. Repped!

    Edit -

    Have installed this on my Android and Windows Phone. Works like a charm. And the Desktop iteration is good as well. Me Likey.

    Though didn't see a privacy policy link in the apps :D

    But atleast it has notifications. It's already pretty annoying to keep glancing at your phone every now and then for messages from important people. A desktop client allows that freedom.

    Plus if not many are on the app, I can always de-activate WhatsApp from App control and let this work.

    Selective segregation
