What are some good messaging apps?

iOS and iPadOS

Hi, everyone What are some good messaging apps that don't ask for your phone number?
I have Facebook Messenger and Google Hangouts. I am looking for more apps that can message Groups. Thanks.

Skype is a good one but you already have it. So try Voxer. It's an app that you can create groups with and talk to them. As far as I know, there is no phone number required, I think it's optional.

Kik is another one that doesn't ask for your number.

They use usernames.

Unlike the other apps listed here, kik is text only.

How accessible is Telegram Messenger and Slack? I am looking for apps like WhatsApp but for the iPad and ones that you can sign up with your email.

I'm still planning to try this app out. What type of app is it? Does it only allow you to call or does it have a chat feature?
