    In 2016, one could make a good case there are too many social and messaging apps available on all platforms. Nonetheless, these apps are still popular and overlap in function from purely social to work to video to emoji machines. Some now have voice for calls, while others are a legacy like Skype trying to play in an all new mobile world.

    GroupMe, which is owned by Skype, which in turn is owned by Microsoft has had a strange existence. It's a chat app for people who need to have group conversations, but it can also pass those messages on via SMS when data is not available, which is extremely useful.

    Just wanted to chime in saying that at my university, GroupMe is the de facto group messaging app, other than group MMS and Facebook messenger. I think it can find a niche as casual group messaging, especially since SMS support makes it very inclusive.
