How to know which messaging apps your contacts use on Android

We are going to explain how you can know which messaging apps each of your contacts use, something for which we are going to use a new Android application called DM Me. WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, there are more and more messaging apps, and sometimes it is difficult to put an order without having to enter one and another to talk with this or that contact.

What this app does becomes a kind of index where you see your contacts and the apps that each one of them has. Also, you will be able to start conversations in those other apps directly from this index. We will start by explaining what you need to use this application, and then we will tell you the simple step by step of how to use it.

Information before using this app

The first thing you should know is that you are going to have to give your contacts access to the application so that it can analyze your messaging applications and tell you which one of them is. Here, you should know that it is a small independent developer and that the app only acts as an index, so perhaps there is a little less danger. But if you are obsessed with privacy, you may prefer not to give up your data

Another thing you should know is that you will need to have the other messaging apps installed, your session started and the linked contacts. DM I only acts as an index, and it needs these apps to be operational to “ask” each one of them which of your contacts are in it.

Finally, you should know that from DM Me you can open messages to your contacts in other applications just by clicking on them. To do this, you have to configure a priority system to decide which apps you prefer to open conversations automatically.

For example, if you put Telegram as the first one when you click on a contact that has it, that app will be the app in which the conversation opens, and if it doesn’t, it will open in the next app on the priority list that it does have installed. that contact.

Find out which messaging apps your contacts have

The first thing you have to do is download the DM Me application. To do this, you can go to your profile on Google Play and download it as if it were any other application. It is an app that is still in the testing phase, so you can expect some bugs and it will receive updates regularly.

The first time you open the application, it will ask for your permission to access your contacts. You will have to permit it if you want it to work, so it is a type of data that you have to deliver. The positive side is that it will not ask you for anything else, not even access to write for you since all it will do is open conversations with you in other apps.

In the next step, you will have to configure the priorities of the apps that you want to use to open messages to the contacts on your list. Remember that when you click on a contact in the app’s list, a conversation with him will open in the first app on the priority list that contact has.

And now, you will enter the app where your contact list will be displayed. Under each contact, you will see in which messaging applications you can find them, and when you click on one a conversation will open in the first of the priority list, which is the one that appears on the left. You also have the option of being able to pin the contacts you want to appear at the top of the list.
