Many chat applications are going through a new revolution and more people are being conscious of the recently announced privacy change by Facebook, owners of Whatsapp messaging app.
Another US app called Signal faced similar huge technical difficulties as it struggles amidst a spike in traffic. With this development, many people are searching for alternatives and have systematically migrated to similar apps such as signal and telegram.
The innovative App That is Trending Among Nigerians and Africans is SoftTalk Messenger and its about the closest that they can think of that offers even more features such as the ability to call both online and offline contacts. It’s reportedly the most advanced in Africa with support for encrypted chat, HD audio/ video calls and an online store amongst other features.
The sudden spike in new user acquisition and daily active users running into thousands, a gofundme campaign has been organized for SoftTalk Messenger for Africans and indeed anyone that is passionate about African technology and wishes to support the initiative to donate any amount.
According to the Founder of the company, Simple Azenabor, the current surge in traffic has a financial obligation and there is an urgent need to scale its system to handle the traffic as well as increase the team members and continue to make the African people proud by innovating and creating something more impactful.
