    Great app. In these corona times, the app is a lifesaver as our school is connected through and largely dependent on whatsapp communications. I had a suggestion for improvement though which would help me work effectively. When I add a shortcut of a group to the homescreen, I am unable to see a message received notification on the shortcut icon. If that is done, it would help me immensely as I would not require to go to the main app and comb through different groups. Thank you

  • Stickers changed everything May 7, 2020

    By torresale3
    So my friends and I have debated back and forth whether if to use whatsapp or imessage as our primary way of communicating for as long as I can remember. In all honesty we frequently switched back and forth. However, ever since whatsapp released stickers, there is no debate. My whole entire city/everyone I know constantly trades stickers like pokemon cards & it makes our conversations 10 times funnier. We also create our own stickers using other apps. Our biggest request is to please allow us to organize our stickers (maybe by sorting them into folders/tabs) because we have so many and they get lost in the bunch. Another great idea would be to have access to create new stickers directly through whatsapp instead of a third party application. Please take these things into consideration. I never write reviews but we’ve all genuinely said it for months that we wish we could organize our stickers.

    Since the latest update (I updated WhatsApp on 27th September 2020), there have been many problems. The App takes a long time to open, then there are times when the screen suddenly turns black, then there is that annoying 'Unfortunately WhatsApp has stopped' message. DEVELOPERS PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. I SEE MANY PEOPLE EXPERIENCING THE SAME PROBLEMS!!! THANK you

  • Camera takes fuzzy photos every time Sep 22, 2017

    By kylehotchkiss
    WhatsApp in general is fine. But every photo I take in the app is fuzzy; and more zoomed in than my normal photos app. It’s like they are putting camera in video mode and taking a screenshot. I guess this is part of their cross platform library but still, I wish it would let the camera app use more native and high quality functionality. Additionally, it’s wayyy too easy to send things to the wrong person. You can’t remove people from “recently contacted” or “frequently contacted” prompts around iOS for sharing. I’m terrified I will send my girlfriends brother something immodest because his name shows above hers even though our chat volumes are way different. WhatsApp is a globally loved tool but has some pretty strange UX issues given its financial backer and experienced staff. I will continue to use it as most of the world doesn’t have iMessage; but if they did; I don’t think I’d miss the WhatsApp app that much.

  • A comprehensive review of Whatsapp security. Oct 21, 2019

    By amr bashq
    First of all yes I am on addersal. WhatsApp has a number of advanced security features. It has end-to-end encryption, just like Apple’s iMessage and Signal. All messages flowing through the platform are secured so that only the sender and the recipient can view them. WhatsApp couldn’t read your message even if it wanted to. The app doesn’t store your personal information, and only people you approve as contacts can message you. As with an increasing number of internet services like Google and Facebook, WhatsApp uses two-factor authentication, which has you type in a second passcode sent to your phone via text message to access your account. Group messages can conflict with some privacy settings, however, in that if you have blocked someone, they can still appear in a group message that you can see

    Since the last update the app is not working well. The keyboard disappears and the screen goes black and the app exits by itself. If I was busy typing something it also disappears and then I must start again. And other times the app freezes. Please fix this problem! I see many people are complaining about the same problem!

  • Problems Feb 7, 2020

    By maizarquqa
    I report many problem in WhatsApp and all I got the feed back is same reply which is cut and paste from your technical department. I have serious issues and took snapshots and the till now never been solved. Need to solve the issue all my data pictures and media are gone while they are all stored at my IPhone but they don’t upload and please don’t tell me to check with Apple. I restore many apps and all the data perfectly recorded only WhatsApp has such problem and they don’t know how to fix this issue and they transfer it to Apple. Another issue the app no more connect to the internet which means have to keep deleting it and restore it and it works for few hours and after that same issue not working. I have cleaned the cash and follow up all the troubleshooting and no hope. I have 2 what’s app one for business and another one personal. The business no problems with it. The personal has the problems so if I have a problem with net work or any other issues both should not work. Is there anyone there can solve this or only sorry and again copy and paste the troubleshooting? This is serious issue as I have important data for more than 4 years and thanks to WhatsApp now can’t restore it properly only some and some are not.

    WhatsApp have always worked fine. Just now that the voice record function is being increasingly used by my contacts and Whatsapp still haven't fixed the too low volume issue when recording, it is getting annoying to use WhatsApp. If you have a function available in your application, then ensure you test it and make it work properly. I have Android Oxygen 10, so it shouldn't be a problem for my phone.

The worst problem is that whenever i want to chat to someone the keyboard disapears, my phone freezes, the screen just goes black and then Whatsapp just exits. I have not been able to talk to anybody. Please fix this annoying bug. Thanks in advance.

  • Incredible Nov 18, 2017

    By Nin★DogeAppReviews
    I really love this app. It's incredible how you can talk with anyone around the world without paying actual money. There’s nothing wrong happening with my version, the camera works well and shoots good photos. There are some things that would make this app the best messaging app. The first one is that when you mute a group chat there should be an option that allows you to mute it forever, same goes with the real-time location. When you create a group, others shouldn’t have the option to kick you from the group, and there should be an option to make someone not be an admin without having to kick the person and adding them again. Also, I really want the GIFs to have their own spot so you don’t need to go to Photos and Videos and then click GIFs. Also, make a DRAWING option. Well, that’s all. Thanks for this amazing app.

  • Wonderful app! please add one simple feature May 13, 2020

    By accidentalgrammernazi
    I use this app to communicate with my friends and family daily. I’ve been using it for about 4 years now, and I’ve accumulated a LOT of stickers. I mean probably 500+ stickers, all of different things for different situations. It can be a real pain to have to scroll through a lot of them, especially since I star/favorite most of mine and don’t have packs. If there could be a way to manually organize the starred stickers and put them in their own packs/sections or anything that would be amazing! Maybe something similar to Pinterest? Where you create a board/pack and add the a sticker of choice to that pack. Also when you delete a sticker it automatically scrolls all the way back up to the top of your stickers, I’d prefer if it didn’t. That’s it! Thanks for a wonderful service.

  • WhatsApp- A Great End to End Encryption Platform Apr 28, 2020

    By @njiban
    I am particularly fascinated with WhatsApp because of its versatility and agility as far as social media platforms are concerned. It takes customer privacy and security into great context and go out of their way to protect that customer information from 3rd parties and hackers. I have never heard of a hack or security breach into WhatsApp security systems. Overall the App has been great and has eased the way the world has connected via talking and sharing digital and graphical data. The only downside to WhatsApp is that when you lose your device or are out of storage and uninstall the app, you typically lose all your previous chats and data. I would have been great if WhatsApp had an option for optional storage space for sale, for folk to backup their communication and social media data. Thank you

  • Too easy to call people by accident May 6, 2018

    By Adriana04
    The app is really great and connects me with my contacts all over the world. It makes it easy to stay in touch. You can text and even call for free. Doesn’t get any better than that! The only thing I would change is how easy it is to call people by accident. It happens all the time. I wish they would hide that button behind the profile page. This is mostly a texting app, do we really need that button on the first page?Even on an iPhone you have to first click the i button from the message page to call someone. It’s smart. Another issue is that the app distorts the quality of pics and videos after they are sent. I often receive videos with delayed sound and fuzzy images. I have to ask my contacts to send me those through other apps so I can actually get the proper sound. Please fix and it will be the most perfect app!

  • Love Everything except... Nov 7, 2018

    By Arman_s23
    WhatsApp is an amazing chatting app that conveniently connects you to a broad chat base of your family & loved ones, friends and acquaintances alike at a quick setup without having to generate unique ways to connect with each other. It has a plethora of other cool features like ability to make voice and video calls etc. and now even make payments to each other for a dinner you shared but did not pay for... BUT all this power without the possibility to lock the app or have a password access is a waste of opportunity to complete the offering by WhatsApp. I really feel THEY ARE RATHER LATE. PASSWORD PROTECT OPTION at starting the app window IS MISSING AND should have been there like yesterday ... it’s a simple feature addition but gives many people the safety they want to protect their communication and today communication is everything!

  • Plenty of room for improvement Oct 14, 2017

    By Doug tge CEO
    As an avid user of social internet media , I found WhatsApp is lacking in many convenient features offered in other apps. I use Facebook when I want to express some thoughts, events etc. But FB Messenger is not efficient in quick text, so I still resort to 20 years old practice in text msg like in Nokia phones. WhatsApp is subservient to the features offered by WeChat. Understood that WeChat is by Tencent in China, nevertheless the features are amazing. The Moment posting functions are like Facebook post. The conversation wether individual or in chat groups are more user friendly than WhatsApp. It allows recalling a wrong message sent in mistake. Attaching files and emojis are awesome. My only complain is that once viewed in one device the message cannot be reviewed in an other, which FB allows all history conversation once logged in. I lived in America over 47 years. I highly recommend friends to use WeChat for daily contacts over other apps.

  • Still not syncing contacts since iOS update months ago Nov 17, 2018

    By sinkary22
    When IOS updated several months ago, one of the features that was affected on WhatsApp was the option to sync contacts. I called Apple then and they informed me that each app provider must update their security profiles to be compatible with the new IOS. There have been 2 updates of IOS since then and still, WhatsApp hasn’t got with the program. Utility of WhatsApp has gone down as I have to research each contact to try to even place a call to them. Numbers that are in my phone book don’t register so it’s difficult to know which contact is which without that extra step in research. Furthermore, I can’t save new numbers directly from WhatsApp to my phone. This is quite frustrating. I have never left a review on this app before and decided that 5-6 months of this is enough. Can you please update your app to resolve this issue with iPhone!

  • Not opening a chat Aug 19, 2020

    By Kim Namjoon_Kim Hyemi
    So me and my friend were talking and I put too much emojis I didn’t even get to send I kept copying and pasting u until it makes a long paragraph because I wanted to try something but it just lagged and then I left WhatsApp and went back onto it and clicked on the friend I was texting but it didn’t open. Every time I click onto our chat, it doesn’t open it just lags on her name then I need to get off WhatsApp and on again I also turned off my phone and opened it again and still the same problem. I could open other peoples chat but not me and hers. It does let me go onto her contact info when I long click on her name but when I tried to get back onto our chat it wouldn’t work I even tried to do the chat search and it wouldn’t work. What would only work is the media,links and docs and the starred messages so please try to help me out with getting back onto our chat.❤️

  • Needs 1 change Oct 22, 2018

    By dordor.a
    I love this app, but 1 thing I wish they would change is their notification system/inability to get calls when I’m on another cal. Sometimes I’ll be on a phone call from my actual phone, and then when I get off the phone an hour later, and if someone from WhatsApp is trying to call me, it’ll say “Missed Video call from____”. To me, it’s annoying how if I’m automatically on a phone call, the WhatsApp video call won’t go through period. WhatsApp should let the video call go through, so even while I’m on my phone during another phone call, and I see someone calling me, I can answer the other. Sometimes it’s important and I need to answer because it’s family from another country, but I never can because WhatsApp automatically tells them I’m on another call, but doesn’t notify me. Fix it. Please. It works with audio calls, why not do this for video calls too?

So I have to take a photo with default phone camera and share it. It's annoying sometimes. Actually I experienced it since long time ago, but it hasn't been fixed until now.. many of my friends also have this problems especially if they have the latest phone model (galaxy note 8 and above).. please fix it

  • Problems with customer service. Apr 15, 2020

    By Jolly jolly mee
    They want the app to be a “safe space” but I have one user I’ve been having problems with. I want to report said user but I want to talk with a representative from the app first to talk about my options before I outright report. I’ve so far attempted to email them but I have gotten what seems to be auto responses. Customer service... not user friendly. It’s a good app if you don’t run in to problems and make an informed decision about reporting someone. I’d really like to call someone and see their take instead of having to use email. Also that they can’t restore messages for you is really annoying when the messages you lost depict criminal seeming behavior you would want to report to law enforcement but don’t have because you lost them. I would want to speak with a representative to see if they can restore lost messages for investigative purposes.
