If you want to make a the application level. Best ways is to use Java. It will be really helpful at the same I saw there is a chat application tutorial in thenewboston. But If do not prefer to use Java. The approach is to use NodeJs It's really fast and flexible going with the JavaScript syntax. You must learn about sockets and stuff make it consistent and instant.

Not to burst your bubble here but if you're going to create an instant messaging app with android you should be fairly well read about concurrency and threads. Furthermore you need to create a Server as well if you do not choose to implement a peer-to-peer solution in which I'd recommend you to use bluetooth. Although if you're not experienced with this I strongly recommend you to learn java properly beforehand. I cannot stress enough that android can be really rough for the inexperienced and will most likely lead to headaches and frustration. Start small and work your way up!
