Instant messaging services. What is its future?

From the 1990s, instant messaging antedates the Internet, initially appearing on multi-user operating systems like compatible time-sharing system (CTSS) and Multiplexed Information and Computing Service (Multics) in the mid-1960s.
But now, as networks have developed, the protocols propagate with the networks. Some of these used a comrade-to-comrade protocol while others used comrade to connect to a server.
In parallel to instant messaging were the early online chat facilities, the earliest of which was talkomatic in 1973 on the “plato” system.
Instant messaging (IM) is a term that comprehends a variety of software based applications  that enable users to have some real-time text conversations, express their feelings and mood through emoji’s, share moments captured in the form of pictures, share important documents and files such as audio and video files.
Instant messaging (IM) is a very beautiful concept that allows two users to communicate in a small chat room on your computer screen or mobile phone’s screen when both the users are online, and when they are not online, they can leave text messages so that the other user can read it later. All you need to do is register yourself with that software based application and you are good to go.
The main reason behind the shaping of instant messaging is it’s ever growing features like earlier it just provided with chat facilities, but now its has files and media exchange as well.
Talking a little bit about the future of instant messaging (IM) services, technology has never failed to flabbergast us with its ever growing features, from text messages to media transfer, from media transfer to voice messages, from voice message to voice calls, and now from voice calls to video calls. Isn’t it just so amazing.
Well! The future of instant messaging services is definitely bright and we do look forward to a great new feature.
