A popular messaging app for iOS and Android, myChat, recently made its Windows Phone debut, allowing users of that platform to access its features for the first time.

The app, which actually was released a few days ago, offers free video and voice chat to other myChat users around the world, along with free messaging. The Windows Phone version also offers support for push notifications, group chats, and smileys for text messages.

While myChat first started in Russia as part of the Mail.Ru Group company, it has since expanded beyond its origins and and in 2013 the company opened up an office in the US in Mountain View, California. It will be interesting to see if myChat can compete with the many other instant messaging clients that are already available for Windows Phone.

You can download myChat right now from the Windows Phone Store.

Thanks to the many people who tipped us!
