    I use slack even for just small groups of friends. It's an awesome way to organize and share gifs, emojiis, documents, etc.

    WhatsApp Stickers

    WhatsApp finally supports stickers

    I cannot believe WhatsApp is lower on this list. Whatsapp is the most reliable cross-platform application I have used in recent years. It has a very simple UI and always always serves the purpose.

    Slack is my number #1 suggestion for team-communication. But What's app is not a bad option neither.

    I think Facebook messenger is a strong candidate - especially with it being given so much attention from Facebook. It should only get better.

    Either Telegram or Slack. Depends on what you're going to use it for.

    I would suggest BoostHQ. You can discuss and also share content that won't be lost like it would be in email threads or Slack chat-threads.
