The rapid development of technology generated a lot of instant messaging applications, as an example is LINE Messenger, Telegram, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, BlackBerry Messenger, etc. Many instant messaging applications cause some problems, one of which is the possibility of owning more than one instant messaging applications to meet messaging needs. This is very ineffective because messages will be received from various instant messaging applications and have to open all instant messaging applications one by one to reply to those messages. Application Programming Interface technology of instant messaging can be used to build a transport layer system that allows message exchange with several instant messaging applications using only one instant messaging application. The system built in this research requires a master instant messaging to be able to distribute messages to partner instant messaging, which in this case uses LINE Messenger as the master instant messaging to distribute messages to several partner instant messaging, which is Telegram and Extensible Messaging Presence Protocol.
