As many of you smartphone users know, there is an abundance of messaging services out there that make it so hard to choose one over the other and it’s quite common that many of you end up using several of them because the people that you know use different apps.
However, now there’s an all-in-one Chrome messaging service launched by Google that gathers all of the different messaging apps and puts them all in one place. It supports more than 30 apps among which we can name WhatsApp, Hangouts, Skype and many others. The app is called All-in-One Messenger and is exclusively desktop based though, so you’re kind off tied to a PC if you want to use it.
If you are interested in downloading and installing this app, you should know that you can get it from the Chrome Web Store. Once you’re done with that entire process, click on the messaging apps that you want to use and then sign-in to each platform. You can also go back to the app list if you feel like you’ve forgotten an account you have on a messaging app.
As soon as you’re done with the signing-in process you will notice that there will be a window with various tabs that belong to the various messaging apps and that you can switch between them. You will also be able to turn on the desktop notifications for each messaging app.
However, since Chrome isn’t fully integrated into Windows 10, it’s very possible that the desktop notifications won’t actually appear on PCs that run the particular OS. There’s also a problem when it comes to you been notified if you have unread messages on any of the messaging apps. By that we mean that there is no badge sign that lets you know that there a new conversations waiting for you.
Another downside to the all-in-one Chrome app is the fact that Google plans on discarding apps like it and it may become unavailable at the end of 2016. So if you’re interested, get it while you can!
