About this app

WhatsApp from Meta is a FREE messaging and video calling app. It’s used by over 2B people in more than 180 countries. It’s simple, reliable, and private, so you can easily keep in touch with your friends and family. WhatsApp works across mobile and desktop even on slow connections, with no subscription fees*.

Private messaging across the world

Your personal messages and calls to friends and family are end-to-end encrypted. No one outside of your chats, not even WhatsApp, can read or listen to them.

Simple and secure connections, right away

All you need is your phone number, no user names or logins. You can quickly view your contacts who are on WhatsApp and start messaging.

High quality voice and video calls

Make secure video and voice calls with up to 8 people for free*. Your calls work across mobile devices using your phone’s Internet service, even on slow connections.

Group chats to keep you in contact

Stay in touch with your friends and family. End-to-end encrypted group chats let you share messages, photos, videos and documents across mobile and desktop.

Stay connected in real time

Share your location with only those in your individual or group chat, and stop sharing at any time. Or record a voice message to connect quickly.

Share daily moments through Status

Status allows you to share text, photos, video and GIF updates that disappear after 24 hours. You can choose to share status posts with all your contacts or just selected ones.

Use WhatsApp on your Wear OS watch to continue conversations, reply to messages, and take calls - all from your wrist. And, leverage tiles and complications to easily access your chats and send voice messages.

Over all very good and fun app to text. But with the new update it kinda downgraded. They added an area of suggested channels to follow and it's very annoying that you can't close that section making it "all in your face type thing". Also they got rid of the option to look at all your statuses at the same time and now have to tap one by one to see them.

There's no feature to share my screen. Update 1/14/2023 Can you please make it possible to share my screen during video chat? It would be much appreciated. Thank you so much. Update: Changed my review to 4 stars 🤩 They added the screen recording feature! The only downside that I have to deal with still is that in order to connect the bluetooth earpiece you have to disconnect the call and then call the person back if you didn't have it connected prior to the call. It's so annoying!

Since the last 2-3 updates, the application works the same but the bottom part with the emoticons is different, it takes up a lot of space and after you write and hit enter you no longer see the written message, you have to go back so that the space where you wrote disappears to see actually what you wrote. It's annoying to make two extra moves to check what you wrote. Please return to the way it was before. It was simple and beautiful. Thank you
