[prMac.com] Singapore - Hoiio has released an update to Hoiio Chat, 1.0.8. Hoiio Chat is a relatively new player in the mobile messaging world. Compared to the leader of the mobile messaging app, WhatsApp, Hoiio Chat provides almost the same functions. Users can send messages to other user via their mobile phones without incurring any cost. However, there is one feature of Hoiio Chat that sets it apart from WhatsApp: group chat.
Hoiio Chat group can contain 20 people, while WhatsApp 6. When a group chat can fit in up to 20 people, it will be easier for users to discuss about a group outing. Students can use Hoiio Chat to discuss about group projects, or for the group leader to inform what time to meet tomorrow prior to the presentation. All these are done without having to leave anyone out of the group.
Users will not be swarmed with push notifications. Like WhatsApp, Hoiio Chat pushes the new messages to users' mobile phones. When the group chat is very

* Always receive when there is new messages
