    Hi,

    I am not sure what kind of messaging you'd like to implement in your app. Generally speaking, you would only need a plugin in case you need to access a native mobile API (iOS, Android or Windows Phone API) to control a native device functionality.

    If you need to create a kind-of-a-messaging board, you can have a look at the Friends hybrid app. If you need to implement a real-life-chat functionality, you'll need to find a JavaScript API that supports your requirements. For instance you can have a look at this post as it describes how to use socket.io and a node.js server to implement Cordova-based chat apps.

    If you want to use a native social sharing app, you can have a look at the SocialSharing plugin as it allows users to:
    • post content on Twitter, Facebook, or other social media,
    • share calendar events or pdf documents via email,
    • send prefilled WhatsApp or SMS messages.

    Please consider the above options and let me know if you have more questions.

    Hello,

    In order to use Socket.io in your AppBuilder project, you need to reference the socket.IO client API from their CDN for instance:

    Since you're looking to create a live chat functionality, please browse through this discussion where you can find other options for creating such an app in AppBuilder.

    Hi

    I also have in mind to implement a message/chat system. I got stuck on http://framework.realtime.co/messaging/ 

    It's powerful, fast and reliable but also at fair price! Maybe it offers what you are looking for.
