As more and more people become connected using smart technology in personal devices the ways in which we communicate with our friends, family, and the world are shifting. Long gone are the days which required long distance calling cards, letters, and landlines to stay in touch. These days, communication is multi-faceted, while traditional phone calls and even text messages are still sometimes used.

Recent communication trends and mediums are allowing us to express ourselves more creatively by incorporating multi-media options into our messages.

Current and Cool ways to Communicate:

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular Apps available for your Smartphone to keep you corresponding in style! All of these Apps are suitable for an Android operating system, can be downloaded for free, and operate using Internet data or wifi services.



Whatsapp is a messaging service which enables you to send and receive messages without having to pay extra for an SMS. It features the ability to create groups for bilateral communication regarding events or ongoing notifications on topics such as neighbourhood security or afterschool activities as examples. It also allows for audio, image or video files to be exchanged.

One popular way in which it is being used, is that people are sending voice-notes to one another, to avoid calling-costs.
