I have been using LINE messenger soley to communicate with my game buddies. Even though I have WhatsApp and Facebook messenger, I don't use them since they give away a lot of personal information to strangers I met in game. LINE messenger is becoming less secure since there is no admin feature in groups and anyone can remove anyone. Also there is a case of bots which can remove everyone from the group.

Hence I am looking for a chat app with features like group albums and group posts, with an admin feature. I am thinking like a simple chat app. Because there will be many players of different tech knowledge.

Platform: Android (though a multiplatform would be nice). I don't have a server.

  • Discord not an option?

Try Telegram. It focuses on security and is free.

It has group, can share files and has admin functionality for group. Check out more in the FAQ.

There are client for Android and also other platforms.

No server is required.

    Telegram is good. But it doesn't have a album or group post feature that is accessable to new joinees. Commented Mar 15, 2016 at 6:32

  • partially. Need the same feature where anyone in the group can create posts and the admin can handle it. Sorry for the late reply. Commented Mar 22, 2016 at 16:23
