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.

This app has gotten worse and worse with glitches and its driving me insane. Every single time I try to play a voice clip the App just closes and goes dark and then I have to reopen it multiple times and try to play it multiple times before I can finish a voice clip. It's insanely annoying and has been doing this for over a year now ... I'm always updating the app and it never helps the issue

Can't open any chats, it immediately crashes the app. Tried restarting the app, clearing cache, restarting my phone, and reinstalling the app and no matter what I try I can't open any chat with any person without the app crashing. This has been going on for months for me now and to not be able to communicate on a communication app is definitely a severe issue that needs to be addressed.

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.
