WhatsApp Messenger

By WhatsApp Inc.


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


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.


• 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.

We're always excited to hear from you! If you have feedback, questions, or concerns, please email us at:

Note: WhatsApp is a telephony app, so iPod and iPad are not supported devices.

• Group admins can now invite people to join a group simply by sharing a link with them. From group info, just tap "Group Invite Link."

Possible improvements

Hi I would like to suggest some possible improvements:

1. An option to play voice messages continuously, hence saving the trouble from playing it one by one.

2. An option to play voice messages by bringing phone to ear only. Hence to have privacy to not always play voice messages out loud at inconvenient places.

3. An option to edit sent text messages, should there be any error in the messages sent.

4. An option to send a short 5-10 second sighting, instead of a full video that will not take up album space. And will not take up too much data to download.

5. Allow whatsapp to have video call function.

6. Allow forwarding of voice messages.

I hope that my suggestions will be seen and would love to see it in whatsapp!

The above suggestions I have listed are some of the functions that I have seen and used in a few other chat applications that i have found useful. However at the end of the day, I still prefer using whatsapp. Thus suggesting for whatsapp to improve! Thanks

If it ain't broke why fix it?

Having a contact's profile picture at the right edge worked just fine. I don't know why that had to be changed. An idle bit of work that really makes things worse for people with big thumbs.

Privacy issues are still a real thing. I only use WhatsApp because I have contacts who have never heard of Telegram, or deliberate Luddites who won't change because they don't see why they should change (now this is a case of it's broke so fix it).

New update screw up notification ringtone

What's with the new update? It has completely messed up my notification ringtone settings! I have different ring tones set to alert me to individual messages, and for different group chat messages. Now they are all having the same ringtone and the ringtone is not even something I am using by default. Have checked WhatsApp settings and even phone settings but everything is as it was before. Pls fix this!
