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.

What's New in Version 2.17.5
• Bug fixes.
OK but not the best; not 100% open source
Whatsapp used to be one of the best messaging apps, but has since been surpassed by others. For example, Wire has more features than whatsapp, including encrypted GROUP video calling, recalling messages, and expiring messages. Wire also respects your privacy (doesn't require a phone number or access to all of your contacts data) and is now 100% open source. Wire let's you sign up with only an email address on its web app, then sign in with email in the mobile app. Or you can register with your phone number in the app. Wire has all the other features too like group texting, voice calling, voice and video messaging, and more, all encrypted, all the time, all free with no ads. Whatsapp has recently changed their terms of service to allow whatsapp to share your phone number with their parent company, Facebook, presumably for marketing and advertising purposes. Wire is not only ad-free, but they don't create profiles of data on their users and will never share your personal information with third parties. If you like whatsapp, then you'll love Wire.
Great app however.....
This is an overall great app especially since I don't have good service where I live. The only downfall I have noticed so far is sometimes randomly the notifications will go silent for some reason. Even when all the notification options are set on for some reason it still goes silent… Maybe this is just something to do with me not understanding something it's weird though because my volume is all the way up. Maybe it's my fun maybe it's the app I have no idea but hopefully it gets fixed soon.
It's my favorite app and my favorite social media!!
I love this app, for many reasons just to name a few, video calls, group chat, phone calls, etc, I would love to be able to make a profile video instead of just a photo and also be able to make a video chat with a group of contacts at the same time, that could be awesome❤❤❤❤👍🏼
