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.

Option to unarchive manually

It would be awesome if once you archive a group chat the only way to bring it back to your active chats was if you manually unarchive it.
Often we end up having so many chats that are just for social purposes but so many others for work purposes. Those "social" ones keep distracting you and even if you mute them, if the group is very active (which they usually are) they keep moving up and take so much of your time. Please make it an option to archive those chats until you actually have the time to sit and read them. The users would be much more productive 😀

Disappointing Support

My iPhone 6 installed Whatsapp crashed exactly after the June 5,2017 update. I'd followed their instructions on their Website's FAQs and send the crash reports via email. I did and all the response I got till date was an automated email ask me to change the chat wallpaper for some reason.

The June 15, 2017-Update just got out..
I updated the app hoping they might have fixed the crash bug, but guess what?! Absolutely nothing! What's so disappointing is no one has even bothered to reach out.

How can we trust such applications if they don't provide the needed support?

[18 July - Update]

The problem is still the same. It crashes instantly when it launched. Atleast this time there was a response from Whatsapp, Althought be it a month later. So I give two-stars for now.

I'd given up hope on ever getting Whatsapp running again, continued in my plight to be disconnected with my family and friend. But am glad there was atleast some response from Whatsapp today. Ive been notified about the new update from Whatsapp.. saying they've resolved the crash on launch issue.


I really like this app but there are a few problems. First, I wish I could download it on my iPad. Second, I wish it didn't save every photo and video sent to my phone (maybe there is a way to turn this off that I haven't found yet). Third it can sometimes be difficult to access people's profiles and start chats or edit information. Other than that, I have no complaints. It is great for talking to my friends in Europe!
