Imo Messenger for Windows is a popular online instant messaging cellphone app that enables you to chat with your friends, make free video calls, exchange images and photos. Imo Messenger for PC is a desktop version of a messaging application that enables you to exchange messages from your desktop or laptop computer. That makes typing much easier and convenient than on a cellphone. The user interface of Imo for PC application is very clean and easy to use but it is also very basic, compared to the cell-phone app.

There is no support for emoticons, fonts size or color can't be changed and many similar settings that you can find in similar applications are simply not available. The application can be set to start after booting your computer and you can disable sound and popup notifications. Audio and Video quality is good and works just fine as well as group chats or sending images, videos, or exchanging data files with your friends.


With the internet, everyone has the ability to connect to friends, family, and co-workers instantly, and talk with them no matter where you are or what device you are using, but an increasing amount of popular chat protocols can lead you to the situation that your contacts are dispersed over several chat programs and web services, making maintaining a connection to them a cumbersome and demanding job.

To alleviate that problem and make your chat messaging as easy as possible you need to consider using this Messenger, a very good multi-protocol chat messenger that is currently accessible via its very useful web interface and as a standalone iPhone, iPad, and Android app.

Established in 2007, this website from Palo Alto, California managed to increase its popularity with each passing year, always offering the latest advances in technology and user interface that enable users to easily access not only text chat tools but also audio and video chat. With the goal to enable all of its userbases to easier meet people by broadcasting themselves, the Messenger continues to attract more people.

  • Send instant messages with a tap of a button saves you money compared with sending regular SMS messages.
  • Make high-quality video and voice calls
  • Group chats with friends, family, roommates, and others.
  • You can send Images, videos, and all other types of files for free.
  • Works on 2G internet but in order to have a video call, 3G/4G or WiFi is recommended.
  • It encrypts your Messages and calls protecting your privacy.
  • Tons of emoticons help you express your mood of feelings.
  • Express yourself with hundreds of free stickers!

The basic function of the app is not that different from many other multi-protocol chat services, although here you will most definitely feel that its user interface and ease of use is one notch better than you can find elsewhere. After creating a free account, you will instantly be able to access all of its features. All that you need is a modern internet browser (any will do), and a microphone/web camera if you want to communicate using sound and video.

The functionality of the web version is also present in iOS and Android apps, with the ability to have multiple chats at the same time, access to all chat networks, and more. As with all other popular chat programs, the tool fully supports real-time syncing between devices, enabling you to effortlessly switch from web interface to mobile device, never losing anything. For maximum interaction with friends, you can also install a Chrome extension that will send you instant notifications of new messages no matter if you are logged on the website or not.

Sadly, the software does not feature plugins that can enable it to directly access your email inbox of famous online mail providers, and you cannot use it to get Facebook and Twitter real-time updates, making it a little less desirable if you want to truly make it a center of your daily communication with the world.
