WhatsApp Messenger

By WhatsApp Inc.


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


WhatsApp Messenger is a 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 message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, and Voice Messages. First year FREE!* (WhatsApp may charge thereafter, current price is $0.99 USD/year).


• NO ADDITIONAL FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone’s Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to message and call friends and family, so you don’t have to pay for every message or call.*

• MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, and Voice Messages.

• WHATSAPP CALLING: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes.* (Note: 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.

Missing some simple and useful features, and some minor bug issues

Great app, use it everyday, works perfect 98% of the time. 98% because at least once a day when I open a conversation and press to type, the keyboard appears but the type bar glitches a little up, being practically floating above the keyboard and i'm forced to quit the app and reopen it again so it can show the keyboard and type bar correctly and start typing again.

Also, YOU SHOULD REALLY ALLOW TO FORWARD MESSAGES TO MORE THAN ONE CONTACT OR GROUP AT A TIME, INSTEAD OF HAVING TO MANUALLY GO 1 BY 1 FORWARDING. I write this in caps lock not 'cause i'm angry or anything. Just want to emphasize 'cause i would really appreciate that feature. And if it can already be done i'm sorry 😁

Another thing, it would be really useful if, when you forward a picture, it asks you if you would like to include the text or not. Or at least let us be able to copy texts in pictures.

Failed to Request Contact Access

I have been using Whatsapp since the beginning & have always promoted the App as my main mode of communication as I travel internationally.

A few days ago I updated my iPhone to 9.2.1

Since that update, Whatsapp no longer has access to my contacts. Therefore I can not start a new chat thread.

The normal prompt to allow access to my contacts did not appear after the update.

Also, friends have informed me that my profile pic has disappeared from their Whatsapp.

I went to Privacy clicked Contacts only to find that Whatsapp was not listed as Apps that requested access to my Contacts therefore I could not click to allow. It was not even listed at all.

To try & correct the issues backed up messages then I deleted the App and reinstalled from my iCloud.

This only made it worse as now I lost some of the chat threads, still Whatsapp does not have access to my contacts & now I can not make calls via Whatsapp.

Please help solve this issue as I am traveling abroad and use Whatsapp as my primary source of communication.

Otherwise I will switch to Skype for all future communication.

Thank you.

Over-reaching app

While this app has good features, the demand that one immediately give them access to one's entire contact list in order to access features is too much!!! I wanted to use this app for only contacting one overseas connection. Instead, WhatsApp wants my entire contact list AND sends any one on my contact list who has WhatsApp a message letting them know to use the app to contact me!!!😡 I DO NOT want to use it for all contacts!!! If I do not hand over my contact list, I cannot form groups or add people by name!! This is too much! I have to use this app for one overseas connection (and will continue to not be able to use features and be constantly reminded to give them access to my contacts)but I will be deleting it as soon as I possible can.
