I started developing Android almost 3 years ago. As for today, the only programming tools I've ever used to build Android APPS (not Games) were Android Studio and Eclipse (ADT Plugin). Please consider that Whatsapp, Viber and other messaging apps (Telegram and more) are COMPLETELY based on customised version of XMPP which is a "open standard Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP)." (Wikipedia). You could try to start developing something like that but if you just started the Android Developing I wouldn't suggest such difficult things... If you need help, I'm always here!
