Remarkably easy setup, automatic syncing with your phone's contacts and a feature-rich, ad-free experience all combine to make Hiddy (Android, iOS) a wildly popular wechat clone script. Users can send text, photos, voice and short video messages to their contacts. And the app has continuously added new features to its toolkit, such as emoji, and fully encrypted messaging between its users. Recent additions include a channel feature where businesses can upload videos just like YouTube and establish a whole new brand strategy. while WhatsApp is also in beta testing the ability to identify suspicious links.
