Flock messaging: communicate and colllaborate for work purposes

We know what you'll say after reading the headline: do we really need another messaging app, with all the FB Messengers, Vibers, LINES, WeChats, Hangouts out there? But Flock claims to be different from all these as it has one purpose only, and that's not to talk about the boss behind his back while at work. It's a messaging app created for you and your team to be able to collaborate and communicate while working on projects, both at the office and if needed, when you're outside.

That's the thinking behind the new app, Snowball, which is still in its beta version but may save your sanity to some extent.

BitTorrent opens Bleep Alpha messaging service for Android

If you think that tech company BitTorrent is just known for revolutionizing the (not-so-legal) way we share large files, then they are out to prove you wrong. A few months ago, they launched the testing of a messaging app that they've created, and now, after working out the feedback they've received, they are now opening up Bleep Alpha to the public, particularly the Android users.

Google’s Emu buy seen to bring some brains to Hangouts
