Unigram rose to popularity among Windows users a while ago due to frequent updates and support for Windows 10 Mobile Windows phones. While support for the mobile version has since been discontinued, the PC version continues to iterate with new features and added functionality. It’s even available to use on Xbox One consoles though it’s unclear how many do.
