Mobile chat is the same as regular desktop pc chat except that you can chat via your mobile phone. The difference is that there are more versions of chat for cell phones and those versions offer more features than regular chat. Do you think lonely people can benefit from the extra features? I think they can.

Your mobile phone may have either a text messaging app or a mobile chat app. App is short for an computer application program.

When you start to explore, you come across names of chat programs that are very famous among the world of mobile phone users. As you know mobile phones are far more popular than land phones and have reached many remote areas of this earth. The scope of chatting via mobile phones is much wider than the  scope of regular chat via desktop computers.

All the cautions about your personal information apply while...

...using chat on cell phones. Those cautions are described on the chat page. While chatting on a cell phone you simply have to remember to turn your cell phone off completely when you see that your chat is causing your cell phone to download something or behave an erratic manner. Also, remember to not chat while you are driving.

It is worthwhile to explore...

...the big names in the mobile chat world. WhatsApp is a comparatively new app that has become extremely popular. The best aspect of WhatsApp is that it is so simple to use that normal people can use it without having to become tech savvy. You can send text messages, voice messages and photos.

GroupMe is a simple to use app which allows you to participate in group chats. Group chats can be a lot of fun and this app allows you to do it either from your mobile phone or your computer. However, GroupMe has no voice messaging.

Simplicity is not necessarily...


...a feature of the Line app but it offers a lot. You can send text messages, participate in group chats, exchange photos and videos and play games with others. With all those features, there is more to learn. However, being adept at mobile chat apps allows you to be more available and participate in groups more fully. When you participate well in groups you stand a better chance of meeting a person you like.

If you want to experience mobile video chat, Tango is the app you need to download to your phone. The app will allow you to engage in video chat, group chat, text chat, voice calls and play games with other Tango users. Since you have to learn how to use all of that, it cannot be considered a simple app to use.

While you are on a voice or video call...

...with another person, if you want to send text messages or play games with the one you are talking to, Rounds is the app for you. This app will allow you to really engage with the person you are calling via voice or video.

Do you have concerns that photos you transmit via chat could end up in the wrong hands? Then use SnapChat. With SnapChat, your photos are deleted within 10 seconds of being received by the recipient.

Some people really enjoy using...

...the "walkie talkie" way of communicating. There is an app called Voxer, that will allow you to have that way of communicating with individuals or groups. The beauty of this app is that not only can you send audio
messages but you can send text messages and photos. And the messages can be played back later!

I have pointed out the most interesting apps for mobile chat. For a comprehensive list go Best Mobile Chat Apps.

Having the latest app for mobile chat app...

...cannot get you friends to overcome your loneliness. However, getting disconnected from technology can be a factor in one's isolation. Keeping up with new chat technologies helps you in a subtle way to remain connected with society and thus overcome loneliness.
