Perfect for keeping in touch with reletives and firends all over the world, and at an incredibly low cost. Only wish there was an easy way to backup conversations. We have a family group for family to share pictures etc. Wish I could backup and print off every year. It makes such a good blog and diary of events!!! Please please please add backup!! **Update on 23 Feb 17 I've downgraded my rating to 3 stars because 1. there is still no easy way to backup a conversation. 2. The addition of status update - this is not Facebook.
I absolutely hate this update ! Every social media application has its own qualities which makes it better and special than the others. And whatsApp has its own special features and you can't copy other features from another applications! Delete the story update and bring back the old status bar. In addition, add more beautiful wallpapers or a new way of presenting profile pictures, but make it special than the other apps. It's sad that I just can't delete this update ....
Firstly, I absolutely hate the new update. Whatsapp was great because it was simple and easy as well as extremely user friendly which the update has now diminished. Whatsapp was so simple that all age groups could easily communicate with, which no other application really provided. Whatsapp now seems to be copying applications to include features from BBM, Instagram and Snapchat. What makes it worse is that one cannot revert to the previous version on Google Play Store. Please make useful features, for example, how is a "Call Log" tab useful or more important than a contacts tab?
What non sense! Whatsapp was the best social media app and was the best app to communicate with others....instead of such popularity and good features what is the requirement to add more such features like status disappearing after 24 hrs.. I request u not to listen to anybody otherwise like hike u will also be in the list of fake social apps and will lose your position of popularity...I thought whatsapp is better than fb and insta but no!! Plz fix it and RESTORE IT as soon as possible
I am on WhatsApp, not on Facebook for a reason. You just don't have to be a Facebook for some to like it. Bring back text status updates. Additionally don't give me this herculean task to select friends who can't see my photo or whatever update I give. Nor do I want all my contacts to see my pic updates or whatever. WhatsApp where it is today because it's simple. It's an app for communication not for socialization. For that FB or Twitter is already there. You don't have to be an alternative to them. Or people will find your alternative too. Just bring back text status updates for a starter.
Overall it's a very good app, I loved it But I didn't like the latest update bcoz whenever I change my status... Everyone will get notified.... Previously it was good, when if I change a status then only the ppl who care about me will see it & not everyone... Not everyone wants to share their (as status updates).... So please don't make it like Facebook... Don't let it lose its originality..... Hoping for a valuable response
