Who still uses SMS? Instead of chatting with their less computer-savvy parents, teens have largely turned to the various instant chat apps available on the Play Store.

This is an understandable move as they are much more adaptable to the new types of communication they use. While Messenger has crossed the 1.2 billion user limit, WhatsApp (which passed it a long time ago) will be updated very soon.
