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

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.

Good interface and nice functionality. Does what I need it to do. Wish they would release features a bit more quickly. Example: we've seen online about a UI refresh to make navigation more finger friendly. I've been waiting a month or more for this. I get the update and the description references said UI refresh. Opening the app however shows no changes. I know you're developing an app for millions but just a bit faster updates pls? 🙏or don't advertise them & users then wait for feature drops.

The recent UI update has improved the overall aesthetics of the application. However, there is a minor adjustment that could further enhance its visual appeal. Specifically, increasing the spacing between the "WhatsApp" title and the search bar would create a more balanced and symmetrical layout. This adjustment would be particularly beneficial on larger devices, such as the Samsung S24 Ultra, where the current design appears cramped and lacks visual harmony.

WhatsApp with it's new update is quite the mobile messenger. I do however want to make a suggestion. You recently introduced the feature that enables users to edit their messages. May I suggest that, just as you did when you introduced the feature that helps users reply specifically to a message by swiping right, you can also introduce the function to edit a mesaage by swiping left on it. At the moment, swiping left does nothing. It would make it most convenient to use. Thank you.
