Do you find Facebook Chat Bar horrific to use? Well, so do we and it is mutual. In fact, many of us hate mini chat window on Facebook because we have to keep it open throughout the time we intend to chat. Else, we may lose messages, fail to reply to those messages and evoke misunderstanding between us and our contact. Terrible, isnâ€™t it? Thatâ€™s why I kissed it goodbye and embraced these Facebook Chat Bar alternatives on my desktop and mobile devices. I suggested some Facebook Chat Bar alternatives for Mac, Windows, iPad and Android devices.
Official Facebook Messenger
The official Facebook Messenger application is one of the best Facebook Chat Bar alternatives you get. However, this application only supports Windows-based desktop and mobile platforms including iOS and Android. With this application installed on your device, Facebook chatting becomes a bliss, aah! Facebook Messenger application (both on desktop and mobile devices) will allow you to get connected to your friends wherever you go without having to access the Facebook site (desktop) or app (mobile). You can send texts to friends, initiate group chat, never miss a single communication with push notifications. You can continue the chat or the conversation when you sign in with Facebook. Facebook Messenger will also notify when your messages are seen and who have not seen it yet. Plus, you can share pictures while chatting and also start video chat.
Do you love retro-styled chat application with flashing animated emoticons what you love on IM clients? Then, you will definitely love this chat client dedicated for Facebook users. Unfortunately, this desktop client (for both Windows and Mac) has not released any mobile version. When you log in to this chatting client, you can not only chat with online friends, but also offline friends. This app will send you sound notifications and pop-up notifications so that you will not miss a single conversation. You can also adjust notification settings to display preferred group of contacts (such as family, Close Friends) and overlook others (such as acquaintances) to avoid getting interrupted by unwanted contacts. Whatâ€™s more? you can also post a new status feed on Facebook wall, check friendsâ€™ pictures, post comments, â€˜Likeâ€™ and share those.
Other Facebook Chat Bar alternatives worth using on desktop and mobile platforms are
- Skype for Windows and Mac with Facebook integration
- Facely for Facebook HD today!
- Friendly Plus for Facebook (iPad only),
- ChatNow for Facebook (iOS)
- MyPad (also supports Instagram and Twitter).
