WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for iPhone and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, and Voice Messages.
WHY USE WHATSAPP:
• NO FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family, so you don't have to pay for every message or call.* There are no subscription fees to use WhatsApp.
• MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, and Voice Messages.
• FREE CALLS: Call your friends and family for free with WhatsApp Calling, even if they're in another country.* WhatsApp calls use your phone's Internet connection rather than your cellular plan's voice minutes. (Note: Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details. Also, you can't access 911 and other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp).
• GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group chats with your contacts so you can easily stay in touch with your friends or family.
• WHATSAPP WEB: You can also send and receive WhatsApp messages right from your computer's browser.
• NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: There's no extra charge to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world and avoid international SMS charges.*
• SAY NO TO USERNAMES AND PINS: Why bother having to remember yet another username or PIN? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS, and integrates seamlessly with your phone's existing address book.
• ALWAYS LOGGED IN: With WhatsApp, you're always logged in so you don't miss messages. No more confusion about whether you're logged in or logged out.
• QUICKLY CONNECT WITH YOUR CONTACTS: Your address book is used to quickly and easily connect you with your contacts who have WhatsApp so there's no need to add hard-to-remember usernames.
• OFFLINE MESSAGES: Even if you miss your notifications or turn off your phone, WhatsApp will save your recent messages until the next time you use the app.
• AND MUCH MORE: Share your location, exchange contacts, set custom wallpapers and notification sounds, email chat history, broadcast messages to multiple contacts at once, and more!
*Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details.

Ratings and Reviews
How wonderful is whatsapp! I have my retired friends travelling in Europe and every day or two they check in and share their adventures with me.
I have my daughter in Australia and she too, can call me and update me on her life experiences. We talked yesterday for over 30 minutes and catching up was great! All this for free in my twilight years.
My Mum always said there is no such thing as a free lunch in life. I would now suggest otherwise!
Thank you Whatsapp! You have made my days!👍🏻😀😍👏👏👏
New Update Doesn’t Show Sender
Update: Thank you for resolving this in the latest update!!
Original Post: The new update does not show who the sender of the message is when the phone is locked or when not using the app. Just shows that there is a message, which is quite frustrating. Only shows sender if ‘preview of message’ is turned on in settings. Can this please be remedied.
I really enjoy this app as it has many options, emojis, gifs and more although I wasn’t impressed by only being able to have four to a call. My friends and I decided we wanted to go to the movies Together although we couldn’t organise all on one call together as 2 people would be left out of the call. This made plans more confusing than they needed to be. Please take my idea of being able to add more people into the call into consideration. Thanks
