Is 2go messenger still functional?

In 2007, 2go messenger was launched and it supports over 1500 devices with over 50 million users in Africa and more than 13 million active users in Nigeria. 2go social networking applications also works like an instant messaging application just like Facebook messenger and it's very user friendly.

But recently, I don't hear anything much about 2go since so many other social media networks like Whatsapp, Telegram, WeChat etc took the trend. So, I keep wondering what happened to 2go now?

I have not use nor familiar with messenger to 2go since I'm not from your country. This is my very first orientation about that site. I only used the yahoo messenger, ICQ and excites to name a few. I have so much fun using those application.

I also am not familiar with this app. The only 2GO that I'm familiar with is the courier service that we have in our country.

Yes same with me. The one that you mention about the 2Go courier is the only thing that I've known.

I agree with you. That was the first thing that came in my mind when I see 2go. However, this discussion makes me miss Yahoo messenger.

It's still functional although there's only a few users left, unlike before when it was the hottest craze in South Africa. With the emergence of better social media platforms, 2go sank in popularity. But it still operational.

I think if the owners can work a bit on it then 2go will regain its popularity. You are right that 2go is still operational. It just diminished in popularity and clientele.

I'm very sure that yahoo messenger is no longer working. It's closed down for months now, and it's a permanent close down.

Try downloading the 2go chat messenger and see if it works in your country.

It seems like it was swallowed once the popularity for Facebook and other big sites started rising and as such the reason why no one uses it anymore.

Perhaps, 2go site didn't go on development and improvement. They ended up their fight in favor of facebook. Truly competition measures one's ability and capacity to strive beyond it's limit. But am sure 2go has a valid reason why it's not existing anymore. We just don't know.

Well this might be one of the reasons. It is always important for any company to do research and development such that they are better positioned to Handle the future

Exactly! There is a very good possibility of other popular social media sites like Facebook and Twitter as well as YouTube and Instagram to have dominated and swallowed up 2go chat messenger.

Even with the existence of Whatsapp, Telegram chat, WeChat etc all might have contributed as well.

Yes, you are right. The competition is just too tight for major message apps that 2go can't keep up. Sadly, it's not even well known.

2go is a South African social media messaging platform which reach its hiatus 4-5 years ago but it's developers began charging users and that was a bad call andost users have since migrated to other free social media apps like Facebook and WhatsApp.

I see. That is why many subscribers of that app decided to transfer to other social messaging application. I cant blame them because if I were in their shoes I do the same too.

It's too bad they didn't make it. The marketing strategies weren't that effective that cast away subscribers. Their competitors has better services and products which are more entertaining and fun to begin with. Users nowadays has a lot of choices to choose from different site.

I think that there was a time when the 2go chat messenger was upgraded to being like Facebook but I don't know what happened a long the way and everything seems to have crumbled.

It's such a shame that a very good and prospecting social media sites like 2go didn't achieve its full potentials.

Charging users was on a bad taste. Before you start such a site you need to sit down to figure where money will come from. You can even share with the users. That will keep you long online.

Just like other social media, they lost on other social media like facebook. Dont seek to something if it already left just like her (love ones). Lol

Well to be honest some things can be restored, if it's something spiritual, you know what I mean? Obviously in regards to such materialistic things we must be more pragmatic. There are simply far more superior messengers than this one.

It's very obvious that most people now prefer Facebook and Instagram more than any other social media sites all over the world today.There are billions of people who have more than one Facebook or Instagram account but few are using 2go.

Well, i have heard about this social networking site for the first time ever through your post. I guess this must be a very popular network when you see the number of subscribers. It mainly caters to the needs of its mebers specifically living in the African countries. I think that this Network is still up and running succesfully across Africa and is open for international members.Is 2go messenger still functional?

I agree. Maybe the reason why it is not known by some people it is because it is is Africa where it is commonly used. And because of the arrival of messenger and facebook, the usage of this application might have diminished.

It looks interesting app. I have to check it if still available on android. I think they have a good messaging system. It looks interesting.

Hahahaha funny thing is that I live in an African country and still does not use the platform. It might be one which is popular in some of the countries as very few People even my friends have it.

I think so. I think you dont like the service of that messaging apps that is why. Africa is huge continent and I am sure many does not know about it.

It looks like it's still very functional from that their site homepage picture which you uploaded with your post.

When I used the social media chat messenger, the site design wasn't as good as this one. Maybe the site is still fully operational.

jpk0007

Yes, the site is still functional and also seems to be popular amongst its users. I was not aware of this site until I read about it on your post. The site seems to have updated itself and it also has an app available for the mobile phone users.

You are right. It is still up and running
it just lost in popularity. Members from all over the world are legible to join.

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with 2go messenger. It's not really that popular in our country, I guess. Facebook messenger is widely used here and we just settle with it.

From what the information that I have about the developers of 2go chat messenger, it was said to be developed by South African students or something like that. So, it's basically a South African social media chat messenger network but I'm not it's the reason why you don't know about it. Maybe people in your part of the world aren't familiar with it as well.

I'm not familiar with this messaging application. Maybe it is just in your country where it got used by many people. The only 2go that I knew is a courier company here in our country.

The 2go chat messenger was very popular in 2007 when it was introduced to the general public. I'm surprised hearing that it's not known in some part of the world because from my experience with other social media sites, the advertisement of the existence of such applications goes all over the world.

I have never heard before such 2go messenger and it was my first time to hear such app. Is it available worldwide or only in some selected countries? Most of the time I am using Facebook and Yahoo messenger in connecting with my fiends and family because it was the popular messenger that I grow up in my location. I am willing to learn more about 2go app since it is better to have great choices which we can feel comfortable about.

There is a very good chance that the 2go chat messenger is an international chat messenger because from the looks of things and how the 2go chat messenger site is designed currently, it doesn't look like something that is only locally used. It looks international by all means.

Never heard about this 2go app. I'm just now learning about it for the first time from your post. Maybe the 2go app gained Popularity in some parts of the areas you mentioned, but I don't think my country was one of them. I also think the fact that the app is losing in popularity is an indication that its competitors are gaining on it. Maybe the developers need to go back to the drawing board.

I think that what needs to be done by the company behind 2go is more intense and aggressive advertising, marketing and promotion of the 2go chat messenger all over the world.

This is actually something that I'm absolutely sure that would get the world all buzzing about using 2go chat messenger.

I’ve never heard of this messenger before so I’m guessing that it’s pretty
country specific! Sorry that I can’t be more help!

What I could suggest for you is to try and look up the 2go chat messenger is your Google play store or Apple store and see if it's available in your country.

If it's available, try and download it and see if it's functional in your own country and then get back to us.

I am not familiar with 2go. I thought it was a shipping company which our country has. Anyway like what I have said I have no idea that it was existed. Maybe the reason why many people are not familiar about that is that the marketing strategy of the developer is not enough that is why they have few subscribers only.

They had a poor marketing team which brought about their downfall. To be honest, there is need for those of the chatting sites to be doing enough to convince us that they are there to help us to keep pushing it.

I am sorry to hear about that messaging application. If they had a poor marketing team that would not be good to their image too. Company should always have a strong and convincing marketing plans so that people will interest to use it.

The thing was that they failed to develop and change with trends that is going on in the society and that brought about their downfall. It was one of the top apps that was used for chatting purposes back then and I am kinda worried about what happened to them at the moment.

This is not a messenger I have ever heard of. I can tell you I have been able, when there, to contact people from Zimbabwe via Watsapp and speak to others on Facebook Messenger. Possibly, those two have taken over most other messengers now. It would be very hard for any company to keep up with either of those two messengers as they are so widely used and have functions that other messengers do not have.

I have heard of 2go before, and I just watched an ad about them last week so I think they still deliver, but I don't know if they still deliver mails.

It is still used but not as popular as ot used to be before. Since 2007, 2go messenger has been online and it is still there. It is South African based and there may be places where it is not available.

Well I guess that this kind of messenger has only a limited scope into some countries since I have never heard that someine in my country is using such messenger. It is good that I am able to learn such unique and different messenger to increased my knowledge into certain things.

I heard about this messenger quite a while ago by chance from a friend, but never got the chance to use it or know about it. I believe it's not something magnificient because it's limited to certain areas. But yeah, it's functional, in part.

2go messenger is somehow outdated for me. The design looks so old school. People nowadays use apps according to how trendy they look like or how simple they are to use. If it is still the era of keypad phones, 2go messenger might still be alive until now. The touch screen phones really made a large impact in these apps and also the taste of the new generation.

Just like what happened to yahoo messenger wherein it got over run by numerous chat applications and social media. To really last long in the business one should always improve and get updated on the latest trends and should always pulse the opinion of the masses. Yahoo messenger has become outdated I guess.

First time heard of it. Maybe because I am in asia and there was no mention of the messenger. Maybe I may have to look for more such similar apps to see. I am not sure if I heard about it. Does the 2Go app was specific to african languages? And was only available for the african users only? It'd be better to learn about it from scratch in such case.

I'm also not familliar with 2Go messenger but here in our country 2Go company here is more on transportation such as ferry know as 2Go travel and they also provide courier and delivery services called 2Go express.
I have never heard of 2Go messenger, tge only messenger that I use is the one privided by facebook and gmail. I'm satisfied with these two.

Yes it is. The problem is that plenty of businesses like Mixit do not adapt properly to change. The other is that they took some time to move to smartphones and simply didn't provide an appealing enough experience on smartphones for users to stay. 2GO however is still very much alive, and developing I would add, particularly on Android smartphones.

Me too I haven't heard this application before but only here. With this kind of application now these days are facing a big competition specially if you are giving best updates, service, best emojis and all that well you are in. Though it only worked in countries like Africa and Nigeria, still gives me interest to know what really this application do or was it same as the other app we use these days. Hmmmm.

I have never used this 2go app before, it's new to me. I think it's probably because there are plenty of messenger apps available now with Facebook messenger, Whatsapp, Skype and Viber already catching trends.

If you had used the 2go messenger before and you are not hearing about it anymore then it may be on a downslide with the number of users. When Friendster was still in existence it was very popular until Facebook came around. It was noticeable that Friendster became quiet and that eventually it folded up. That’s my take when a social media becomes silent. It may be preparing for a shutdown.

Is 2go messenger still functional: I haven't try to use that apps and even hear it before even in my friend. But you didn'y hear anything from this app noe maybe it was already crashed because of the compitation of diferent apps that function same as a facebook messenger.
