Instant chat

What is instant chat?

Instant chat, also known as IM, is a chat messaging system that sends messages in real-time over the Internet. Typically, IM’s are short messages exchanged between two or more people. To send and receive IM’s users typically have to download a specific software. Once you have the software downloaded and set up, you can chat through a plethora of devices such as computers, phones, iPads, gaming consoles and even other devices such as smart fridges. The software allows you to see other online users and to chat with them in real-time.

Modern-day instant chat software allows users to send clickable hyperlinks, GIFs, photos, attachments, documents, videos, and even voice recordings. More advanced software also enables users to call each other through video and voice calls, and some even allow users to share their screens with each other.
