Franz is the IM client I’ve been looking for, allowing me to centralise all of the separate IM channels I’m required to use (both professionally and centrally):

Franz is a free messaging app / former Emperor of Austria and combines chat & messaging services into one application. He currently supports Slack, WhatsApp, WeChat, HipChat, Facebook Messenger, Telegram,Google Hangouts, GroupMe, Skype and many more. You can download Franz for Mac, Windows & Linux.

You can attribute a lot of the simplicity for the way this works down to the original vendors allowing web views of their programs, but it’s still going to allow for simpler communication without having to juggle multiple platforms (and devices). I’m genuinely looking forward to putting this through its paces.
