The messaging and video calling app WhatsApp, from Meta, is available for free and is used by over 2 billion people in more than 180 countries worldwide. It is a reliable and straightforward app that ensures privacy, making it easy to stay in touch with friends and family. WhatsApp functions seamlessly across both mobile and desktop devices, even with slow internet connections, and there are no subscription fees to worry about.
With end-to-end encryption, WhatsApp provides secure personal messaging and calling services to ensure that your chats are entirely private. Only those within your chats can access your messages and calls, including WhatsApp itself.
WhatsApp simplifies the connection process by requiring only your phone number, with no user names or logins. You can instantly view your contacts who are using WhatsApp and start messaging without delay.
High-quality video and voice calls can be made securely, accommodating up to eight people for free*. Your calls will work across mobile devices using your phone’s internet service, even with slow connections.
Group chats allow you to stay in touch with your loved ones while sharing messages, photos, videos, and documents, all of which are end-to-end encrypted and can be accessed on both mobile and desktop devices.
Real-time connections can be maintained by sharing your location with only those in your individual or group chat, and you can stop sharing at any time. Alternatively, you can record a voice message to connect quickly.
Status, a feature that allows you to share text, photos, videos, and GIF updates that disappear after 24 hours, helps you share your daily moments. You can choose to share your status posts with all your contacts or just selected ones.
