    This is probably the best app Ive ever had. You can call, text, video chat, send photos and documents to friends in other countries as if they were down the street. And when we changed phones, and cell providers, we can still call each other on our old phones because we had whatsapp installed on them. Its been wonderful, and its never cost a cent. Love it!! Such peace of mind when family members are traveling overseas!!! Love it!!!!

  • Feature requests

    by Shaloha91

    1. PLEASE make it so messages in muted groups don’t trigger the little blue badge. If I muted it, it’s because I don’t care enough about it to go in and read every message, and that is the only way to eliminate the distracting badge. Please make the experince consistent. Mute should mean mute - no notifications & no badges. This is the only reason I don’t join any groups. 2. GIFs are not photos. Photos are sent to pass on specific information (ie: “look how amazing my trio to Mexico was” or “here’s a screenshot of the car mileage”) while GIFs have a totally different functions. They are meant to integrate a visual element to the context of the conversation without giving importance to the content of the GIF itself. A GIF is a conversation enhancer, not the subject of conversation. Therefore, it shouldn’t be buried along with the photos. Accessing a gif should be a matter of 1-2 taps max. Please make it better. 3. So often I wish to simply like a message quickly, showing the person I’m texting with that I liked what they said. Replying is cumbersome and dorky for this purpose (replying to the message with a thumbs up? Really?) please add a way to like a message.

  • by Rizwana Saife

    All is good. But I would like to suggest few feature enhancements/additions- 1. Please add a feauture where we can accept or ignore a group invite so no one can add us to a group without our consent or permission. 2. Also, there should be an option to stop receiving messages from a contact without blocking them. 3. The display picture crops the image in square ratio. There should be an option to either crop the display picture freely or not crop it at all. Thanks. Keep up the good work!

  • FINALLY CONNECTED WITH FAMILY IN CHINA!

    by Vindog2

    After 8 years of my cousin living in Guangdong province in China, we both agreed on which service to use. That was easy, as several of my family and friends had been using “What’s App” to make contact seamlessly, and without flaws! China is a country with several restrictions, including many social media outlets, like Facebook and Twitter. But “What’s App” is not one of them. My first conversation with my cousin was on Christmas. Keep in mind I live in the PNW, and where my cousin is in China he’s 16 hours ahead of me. Normally we’ve been able to chat when it’s 6pm here and it’s 9am the next day in China. I’m very happy to leave this 5⭐️ Feedback. It’s reconnected my family and I couldn’t be happier. Also note, there are NO hidden costs or fees to use this. There are NO time restrictions; such as a certain time that you must use this app to avoid ant charges. Again, it’s 100% FREE! It’s works with your phone’s internet service, a lot like iPhone’s messenger does.

  • by Manpreet Singh

    WhatsApp is a good app. Texting and sharing media, such as: audios, pictures and videos, is very good and easy to do. However, I would have rated 5 stars, but there are two things that WhatsApp can do to improve and fulfill what I would like. Firstly, in a group, the amount of people that can be in a group needs to be a larger amount. The amount should be at least 300 (or more if you can). Also, please add Sikh emoji symbols, e.g. Khanda ☬ and Ik Onkar ੴ͏. I would love it if you could do that.

  • Keeps spread out families close

    by Dizzy stars

    We first found WhatsApp when one of my children went to school in Australia for a year. I was amazed that the texts were transmitted also instantly. And as my children grew up and moved away from out rural city, being part of a group chat allows up to interact almost, but not quite, as good as if we were all in the same house. We’ve even had real-time, or near-time runnings jokes and ridiculous selfie-wars. I also keep close contacted with my family on the individual level. E.g., I send photos of strange foods to one daughter. Further, when one of my married children visits with their family, or a few unmarried children come, I can make quick temporary group chats, such as July 2017. I’m also a member of two groups for the women in my community. One is just for Announcements. So much easier than having to call everyone individually or try to keep a telephone-call-chain going. The other quality about WhaysApp is making long distance audio or video calls for free. Finally, and very importantly, this app runs circles around the text messaging service that’s already loaded on your phone. Videos load faster, and I rarely have a problem with the service. VERY rarely, like maybe twice in 8 years, if that. The only drawback, if you want to call it that, is that you need to have internet service, and it must be on, to use the app. For me, it’s worth it a hundredfold.

  • 1 Star. But wait...

    by Aadi Baba

    It's just the way you have hard changed the notifications that is very unimportant and unimaginable. I miss the notifications from before this update a lot. Every time a message comes, it says Message. On the lock screen it says Message. No meaning lf from whom or which group the message is coming from. I won't know if I can ignore the notification or not. I accidentally open each and every message whether or not it is important. Why do you have to fix something that is perfectly working. The reasons you only would know! I am sure there would be lot of people who are not on board with this change. Please fix it. ***** Update: thank you for providing the fix for the notifications. But still I fail to understand why it had to be this way. As earlier it was working fine and now it has to be explicitly setup. The same fix, if could be added in update notes, would be helpful for all the users annoyed by it. Thank you.

  • by A Google user

    This app is very ify, sometimes my messages take a few hours to send (even at home with good wifi) and sometimes they send instantly. I know it's not the wifi beca6all other apps work perfectly. And my phone isn't the problem either because it's the same for my friend. Recently it's gotten a little bit better, which is why I changed my 2 star review to 3 stars. Another small issue, it never gives me notifications. I have them turned on but rarely receive them. It causes me to reply days late.

  • Million. Thanks to WHATS APP. !

    by Yogi Samp

    On behalf of millions and Millions of global Users of WHATS. APP. I want to thank you to Developer and it’s organization for providing this Service, this innovative technology has made life so easy and worry less , Free services, where people are doing business, Sharing instant talk and sending pictures and messages, I would like to share my own experience with you guys who are using WHAT APP I came to USA in1985 there were no sophisticated tools no internet, it was very very hard to talk to people overseas , it was ver expensive I used to pay 60. To. 70 cents per minute, it was very hard to reach our people Secondly, if I want to send photos it used to take 10-12 days or more to reach my family And the postage was ver expensive too. I am Reminding all our Folks that how Lucky we are using the WHATS APP TECHNOLOGY I once again grateful to What’s App Developer for doing this great service to this global community.

  • by Mang Phiamphu

    I don't know what it will be like, holding a smartphone without Whatsapp. Thank you so much for this wonderfull app. I'll give 5 stars only if (or when) you guys make a change in the status update section, like automatic video splitting/trimming (into 30 seconds each) when uploading videos that are more than 2-3 minutes. For the rest, you guys are really doing a great job. Keep it up!

  • AMAZING APPLICATION!

    by RegiFergy

    I have been using WhatsApp for more than three years now. Not only do I enjoy the fact that all of the phone calls are free, so are the sharing of photos and videos. Last last year they also added a “FaceTime” like application. Another wonderful part is how easy it is to send pictures and videos as long as 3 to 4 minutes without having to cut them. I also like that you can see when people have checked your messages or whether they are online. You can adjust the privacy of course but it’s nice to know. It is also easy to create group chats. Which is great for school and group mom chats for example where you will be able to send birthday photos or videos between each other. Although i live in the United States, I rarely use iMessage anymore. I strongly recommend this app. Also especially if you have family or friends who live abroad....

  • Phone calls

    by Saaminkaa

    I generally love this app. I have family and friends all around the world and I get to talk to all of them around the clock as much as I want. We use it in school for group chats when doing group assignments and so on.. The only thing I can’t stand is that it drops phone calls every time I try to lock my phone. I like to talk on the phone using headphones while driving or doing stuff around the house, keeping my phone in my pocket so unless I lock it, it touches random buttons. I’ve tried locking it with the power button and it hung up every single time, then I turned on the assistive touch, to lock the phone without using the power button, and using the touch screen instead. This worked fine the first few times, but now it drops the calls as well. Any tips or maybe a fix would be great? Other than that I recommend this app to everyone.

  • by Sliders Todd Y Virginia

    We live in Mexico with family in the United States. Amazing, how everyone here including businesses use what's app. Our connections with family in the United States is easier than ever. Phone, video phone, photos, videos, and location/mapping all a breeze. We never use standard phone calls, Skype or other apps. Can't imagine communicating without whatsapp.

  • Camera takes fuzzy photos every time

    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.

  • by Sakamoto Shiroku

    Its works really well and great, very convenient. However, i am not sure if its just me or my phone...but my messages notifications and messages tend to be slightly slower when i dont have the app opened even if its running in the background...thus there has been some delayed responds to some important issues. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it a few times and it does not fix the problem at all, please take some time to look into it...thank you.

  • WhatsApp is my intimate connection with my loved ones

    by isa requena

    WhatsApp allows me to connect with family, they live on the other side of the world, in Chile. I moved to the United States in 2011 and when I started using WhatsApp a while after that things changed for the better, so much better! I feel them closer and they know instantly what is going on in our lives as well. My boyfriend and I also realized that he WhatsApp calls also work better than the regular cell phone calls here in the United States. We couldn’t believe and we don’t understand it, but we are grateful for its “supremest” quality. Yes, WhatsApp deserves we make up a word to describe its out of the chart quality. Thank you WhatsApp, you changed our world, allowing us to feel our loved ones as if they were so close to us when they are on the other hemisphere of the world. isa Requena WhatsApp fan and lover

  • by Nicole Sikhosana

    Well the app is great but there needs to be a little extra detail. For example Lets say you are chatting to a friend, then u wanna go but still be online. There should be an extra option by the top right corner saying "show last seen". So that u can be online but the person you are talking to will see your last seen. Its just a way of improving your privacy

  • Complaining

    by dieguito_27

    Ok so I generally love the app. But with the new update came something peculiar about the voice message. Now you can keep listening to the voice even if you turned off the phone or switched to another app, but the catch is that if you’re listening to music and you start to listen to a voice the music doesn’t start automatically after you’re done listening to the voice. Now you have to enter the music app and press play so you can keep listening to the song. I don’t really like that. Another thing I don’t like is that if you take out the read receipts you can’t see if someone saw your status. And that’s really frustrating because you took out the read receipts so no one in the CHATS could see if you saw their text. Not for the status. I would really appreciate it if you took out those two things. Please and thank you!

  • by Konstantina Spyropoulou

    I have been using it for more than two years now and for the first time today i experienced problems. Even though i am connected to wifi I can't sent any texts. The clock icon is showing. It doesn't even work when I use my data or change to a different wifi. I tried restarting the device and deleting cache and making space . Please if someone can tell me what yo do to fix it I would appreciate it.

  • Plenty of room for improvement

    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.

  • Incredible

    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.

  • by Susana D.

    Excellent app, keep in contact with friends and family, around the world via chat, phone call, video, voice message. Excellent quality of calls and service. It's free but verify with your provider just in case your data is affected. Everybody uses it, and yes, finally a free app is offered as described and works! Congratulations for the creators and adquisitions department for continuing it's inventors' principles!!! Free of advertisement for ever. Love it!!

  • Too easy to call people by accident

    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!

  • Still not syncing contacts since iOS update months ago

    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!

  • by Seth Freakin' Reigns

    1) if I press the capture button when rotating the screen to take a picture, the picture won't display and I'll be left on the camera screen. and I'll have to close the app and re open just to be able to fix this. 2) When selecting more than 2 pictures outside of the app and sharing to My status the app will process the pictures and during cycling through them to add different captions or filters, the app will crash and keep stopping. I've experienced these issues on different phones. pls fix.

  • After all these years I finally got in tune

    by Andrian Ferguson

  • Houston Texas

    by Okey DoKey Locksmith

    As the owner of a locksmith company and the manager of operation at Okey Dokey Locksmith, I want to say that WhatsApp is one of the most useful app we use on a daily basic. This platform of communication allows use to create a secondary network in a secondary level when we put customers on first priority. For example: if I dial/talk to a technician I use WhatsApp and customer can still call me on the cellphone. To further explain: if I call tech on the phone it takes 10-15 seconds for the telecom system to connect the call and within this time frame of clicking the dial button to the moment the line is connected, a customer might get to the answering machine. Highly recommend to all of you business owners to use WhatsApp as a secondary network for your employees if they are interfacing customers over the phone.

  • Love Everything except...

    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!

  • by Annie Boffin

    I have only one problem with this app, there is a send button on the keypad right below the delete button, so everytime I go to delete a mistake I send by accident. That send button does not need to be there, there is one just below the text window way above the keypad. if you could remove this send button it would make life so much easier. many thanks1

  • More privacy please?

    by Applegetic

    Although WhatsApp is a must to talk to so many people who own no iOS devices with iMessage, I tend to use it the most possible for a major privacy related reason! Whenever I’m online and sending a message, anyone can know that I’m online! There’s no way to hide that! I can hide my last seen, but when I’m online, the whole world can know it! That’s the best stalking tool for creeps and weirdos, and WhatsApp seems to love these people! In addition to that, my other issues with WhatsApp include the inability to receive and send from more than one number! I mean my iPhone XS has two lines in it! Why should I be limited to receiving WhatsApp messages to only one of them? It’s about time WhatsApp made a personal account that allowed access to multiple numbers, and that allowed access to the account from multiple devices! Because I’d want to receive my messages on my two iPhones, Mac and iPad, and be able to reply from any of those without needing to use the very glitchy and fragile QR scanning system they already use that extracts the entire info from the main source while draining its battery too! And it’s always creepy to find ads on Facebook related to what I was discussing on WhatsApp text or voice... I’d frankly prefer to have WhatsApp be a paid service like it was before than be an ad instrument for facebook!

  • Needs 1 change

    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?

  • Best app ever but...

    by Disney_lob

    I use it 24/7, it is amazing, works pretty well. I only have one request, please let us be able to disable the camera sound from settings. Just like you can disable the sound it makes when it takes a picture in apps like Snapchat. The only way of getting rid of the noice made by the camera is by turning your ringer off. I use the camera a lot so after a while the sound becomes annoying, leaving me no other choice but to turn my ringer off. Problem is I need the ringer on and it has already happened to me that I miss several important calls or can’t locate my phone when calling because I forget to turn it back on. It would be lifesaving if you could do that please, I don’t think it’s something complicated. It’s a rather simple request. Other from that, great app

  • Whatsapp is always improving and getting better

    by DIGBYS XPAND

    Whatsapp is a great tools for friends, family and businesses. The continuous improvement of the apps is great too as well. So many new features added and so on. Nevertheless there are other great things that are being taken a way from the apps that need to be reconsidered for great and greater experiences. Not sure if it’s a bug that would be fixed or deliberately done. Few things I noticed are; 1) The inability to fast forward or rewind voice messages. This is very handy function as sometimes we just need to quickly get a point from a voice message we have previously listens to and so on. 2) When viewing status that has audio we have the ability to increase the audio by using our phone volume keys and able to set it to the desire volume. But now it’s volume is static once you push the button at the start of the status it added audio that can neither been increased nor decreased. Please try to look into this as it’s embarrassing having your phone on highest volume in public places and be unable to adjust it. Am using an iPhone 8 Plus incase these issues are only on certain devices. Thanks

  • Very very good

    by Ao1311:)$

    I never ever write reviews because who has time for them. But I've started to use WhatsApp a few months ago to talk to family and friends in a different country and it's amazing. In fact almost all of my friends (high school) and cousins and older family members use WhatsApp to talk to one another. It's free and there is no dumb "well the app is free but you have to pay for extra stuff" it's COMPLETELY FREE. I'm able to see when the text delivered, when the other person saw it and if it's a voice message then when they listened to it. You can also replay voice messages. You can also do stories on it like snapchat which is kinda cool. Over all it's really great, it doesn't have glitches and it isn't slow. I 100% would recommend

  • Notification Preview Update

    by CR777777777777

    Hello, I’ve been using WhatsApp for years and it’s great as we all know it, but just today I don’t like the way a message notification appears since I turned off my ‘show preview’. It will usually show the contact name who sent me a message without knowing what he or she sent to me about, but right now I’m having an issue where the notification only shows ‘message’ and it doesn’t tell who sent me a message and of course I don’t know what’s in the message since I turned off the preview from my settings, but I really don’t like what’s going on, if this is an update, please I’m really hoping WhatsApp could do something to make it like what was it before, thank you, I would really appreciate if anything is done.

  • Great reliable, secure app! Only ONE gripe...

    by BLACKCAR PICTURES

    I absolutely love just about everything about your ‎WhatsApp app… And I use it all the time to communicate with my two world traveler daughters (and my son) who are literally spread out around the world. I only have one single gripe with ‎WhatsApp, and it is the ONLY reason that I am rating it four stars instead of five. I do not understand why, (with all of the resources available to the developers of an app like this that is so popular), you do NOT have an iPad version of this app available! Everyone in our family who has an iPhone also has an iPad (and there are many), to allow them to see and manage all of our photos and videos in the larger display format. I do not believe that we are particularly unique out there… Please, get the Apple SDK for iPad, and do the work for Pete’s sake!

  • Unexpectedly Easy, Love the Encrytion

    by RallyNY

    My title pretty much says it all. I hold out on downloading this for a long time because I had for some reason imagined it would be really complicated. It simply could not have been easier to figure out. There is nothing to figure out. It is simple and intuitive. And I am thrilled with the announcement that all messages are now encrypted. And free international calling? I had no idea that was a feature. I wish I had known this when I travel to Europe it would have a lemonade it the whole saga of getting international Sim card and figuring out how to connect etcetera. Also, now I will never again have to glitchy Skype with my cousins in Colombia! Highly recommend this app. I guess I did have more to say than the title.

  • Looooooooooooove it!!!!

    by Nessa B77

    I absolutely love WhatsApp. I’ve been using it for a little bit over 2 years but have known about it for a little longer than that. I first started using it when me and my brother travelled over sees for the first time and wanted to keep in contact with our family back home everyday so they would know we were ok. I immediately fell in love. I love the fact that you can text, call(both voice calls and video chats) and send pictures for free (regardless of where you are in the world), which saves you a lot of money. One of the things I like the most is that you can send a lot of pictures at a time, whereas you have a limit with regular text messages. I will definitely be using WhatsApp for a LONG time😊

  • OOPS! Sorry

    by First boomer

    I was scrolling down the pages in the app and my finger accidentally landed on the stars button for rating What’sApp as I scrolled the page. There’s no way to undo. I rthink I saw one star flash, but it shows three stars, which is at least better, but not enough for What’sApp which does sooo much. Imagine an app that performs so many tasks, avoids so many charges. is not laborious to use, AND is FREE!!! I’ve had other opportunities to rate and have given it 4 stars. That’s the most stars I give unless the app solves an intractable problem, is the only one, or first/best one to do so, and is perfect. Don’t want to dilute the 5 to preserve its value. When I’ve used more of What’sApp I may rate it a 5. It’s close. So if you’re wondering who is the dummy who rated What’sApp an odd 3, it’s me. Sorry.

  • It’s a good app but here is how it can be IMPROVED

    by topraman101

    WhatsApp is a great way for me to keep in touch with my family and friends from around the world. For me, WhatsApp is the go-to app to text my cousins and uncle and aunt in India. The only thing WhatsApp lacks is a WhatsApp iPad app. Other apps like GroupMe have an iPad app. I want to see a WhatsApp iPad app soon. I know that the iPad doesn’t have specific features required for the iPad but there should be a way to have WhatsApp on iPad. I have tried to email the support team about this issue but I got no response! If a WhatsApp iPad app is out of the question, at least optimize WhatsApp for iPad! If there is no WhatsApp iPad app, I may have to delete my account. I would have given it five stars but insisted I have the app a four star rating because of a lack of an iPad app for WhatsApp.

  • Status features up dates

    by Jpaulg1 / Jerome

    I would love to see WhatsApp up status features options , Now once you and another person have each other number saved we can view each other status which is nice but I think it would be a good idea to have a open status where people can view your updates without having your phone number . Keep the old status option but also add a new option where people can follow you like instagram . ( Overall WhatsApp is great ,it allows billions of people to communicate with their family far in different countries by video or voice without paying for unnecessary long distance phone plan and phone card ) WhatsApp is the best but there’s room to improve

  • WhatsApp for Apple Watch!!

    by neecagee

    PLEASE create an app for the Apple Watch!! WhatsApp is the only way that my husband (who is deployed) can communicate with each other and I love it for that reason. The video calls are usually clear and reliable, though the message notifications aren’t always so. But I went out on my first Black Friday trip today to buy the Apple Watch so that I wouldn’t miss a single one of my husband’s messages or calls since I’m going back to school and can’t always have my phone on me. I was pretty crushed to learn that, once I’d waited 3 1/2 hours in line for the Watch, WhatsApp doesn’t have an app for this device anyway! To the developers...please, please create this soon! We’ve got over 9 months left on this deployment, and you could help make it just a little bit more bearable just by doing this. Thank you!

  • Not sure what life was like before it

    by Paul76445

    What’s App has been much more useful and valuable than I would have ever imagined, both personally (friends, family) and professionally (working groups, community groups). I’m still baffled why it’s used by so relatively few people in the United States, but in every other country in the world, it’s the #1 App For example, in Costa Rica, 94% of all smart phone users have and use What’s App. I have made the bold argument that if I had to choose between only having email or only having What’s App, I would choose What’s App. One suggestion/improvement that is so very needed. I want to be able to send What’s App in the middle of the night when an idea hits me or I want to remind an employee or group about something important say at 2:21 am, however then I feel bad that I am pinging people’s phones on their nightstands in the middle of the night. From midnight to 6:00 am, I wish I could What’s App and then have it ask me to “deliver now” or deliver say at 7:00 am. I still get done what I have to, but my employees, colleagues or group members don’t feel the middle of the night intrusion

  • My first time using your Application.

    by MCLock #3020

    Of course my daughter had to put the application on my iPhone she’s 22yrs. I’m BC ( before Christ )for technology, just not my thing. So my phone rang with the strange ringtone and I push the button and there appears my son, Who I haven’t seen for a year because he’s deployed in Europe in the Army. We had a lot of catching up to do with his career and what I was doing because I’m retired, While we were talking it was just amazing to me to think that he’s halfway around the planet and I’m talking to him live on my iPhone, which was just freaking bloody unbelievable. So I guess technology does have its place, thank you guys for being out there and connecting families all over the world. Sincerely Michael C Lock Retired MPD #3020,Idaho.

  • It’s an awesome app but......

    by John Uroza

    I love the app okay. I use this app to meet new people all over the world but one thing that i hate well make it two. One of them is the quality of the pictures and videos you post on your story. I upload and share high quality videos and pictures but when you post them to the app it makes everything low quality. It’s so annoying and second is the video duration. 30 seconds it’s too short. I want to oust some fun and funny videos but in order to do that i have to cut it in to pieces which is annoying. WhatApp should make a video last at least 3 minutes. Please read this team WhatsApp I enjoy your app but these two things need to be fixed. Thanks

  • Great App!

    by mudkipzRkewl

    My brother is doing an internship abroad and it would cost an arm and a leg to communicate with international data with where he is. This app makes it so much easier for me to communicate with him! The app does an excellent job providing text, call, and video call options. I mostly use the texting, and it’s awesome because it’s encrypted between you and the other person so no third-parties can have access to it. Another note is that my dad doesn’t have any social media and this app has made it so he can talk to my brother without having to use someone else’s social media or using my mom’s, mine, or my little brother’s phone to contact him. All around great app, and I haven’t had any issues with it.

  • Pretty good, but there are some things that bother me.

    by Arie Ortiz

    I really like that this app allows me to speak to anyone that is available on here without having to worry about paying some huge fee if it is someone overseas. However, there are a few issues I have with this: 1. I am not sure if this is just my connection, but whenever I am in a video or voice call, I often find that it keeps disconnecting me from the call and a lot of times, I cannot hear the other person. 2. The thing that really bothers me when it comes to calling others on here is that if the connection gets screwed up, I will constantly hear this loud beeping sound, which gets very annoying after a while. What I personally suggest would be to have it where it doesn't beep so loud. Some could say that I am just sensitive to that, but I find that even if the volume is very low, the beeping can be quite loud, while I can barely hear the one I am talking to on the line. Again the constant disconnecting could be because we are in 2 different countries or it could be my internet speed. The thing that I would really like to see change is definitely removing that assinying beeping sound!

  • Improve the app by adding much needed features

    by Luismccoy

    I typically don’t write reviews but I love WhatsApp and I’ve been a user for years. I would like to see some new features that will make its users extremely happy and productive. 1- A feature to save locations share across the platform so you can later easily retrieve it by label. Ever had to scroll up to look up that location ? Lol 2- An event creator feature where all your friends can rsvp and it notifies the group of any updates. I have many groups where we organize sport events and night outings an we manually update the list 3- allow for an account to be link to email so if you get a new number you can retrieve your old account. This one is self explanatory and everyone is asking for it

  • Complement and recommendations

    by sharmiza

    I love Whatsapp and it is very user friendly. I use to for personal and work purpose. And really helps in my day to day activities at work. Just one suggestion some times in a group chat we want to avoid a particular individual from some conversation and as a result we end up creating a new group each time and that group is never used again after that conversation. Why don’t you create a option in Whatsapp group where you can create a conversation subgroup and select who should be involved in it from the group and once the topic is discussed the conversation subgroup can be closed. This helps a lot of user in personal and business purposes. Just a suggestion and I believe it’s do able.

  • I have a huge problem with this app

    by Thediamondmaster11mlg

    Ok whatsapp why are so you put exit when you have no space literally what if yo have no service I literally had no service and then your like oh no space exit what if someone has a problem and needs my help then I fixed that problem and deleted photos but then I noticed when I clicked on camera or mic it says to go to setting to enable it and I never unable it and then it takes me to the setting where it says WhatsApp and it says nothing to enable a camera I search it up and it says to go to some photo thing so I can turn it on WhatsApp the photos and mic and it shows nothing all it shows is apps that have requested to access to you will appear hear please fix this I did nothing to WhatsApp I like it but this is frustrating

  • THANK YOU!

    by Mtns2Ocn

    Oh my gosh. Thank you thank you thank you for adding the function that prevents having to hold ones thumb down to record a voice message! This is the best ever. My girlfriend is currently living in Germany, and I am in Santa Barbara, CA, so we have depended hugely on the voice message feature. That said, we often lost our messages >5 minutes in due to a slight wrong gesture of the thumb. On top of that, our thumbs were constantly sore (sounds crazy, but 15 minutes of keeping your thumb pressed in one spot is rough). I have yet to find out if this update also prevents messages from getting deleted if someone calls during the recording, but am definitely crossing my fingers. Nice work!

  • Please save me from Group Messages!

    by ja38582

    I like this app and will continue to use it, but there is no way to archive chats and leave them there. I am in a 25 person family group chat (which of course I can’t leave because it will tell everyone) and it’s pretty constantly going, so I “mute” the chat and it doesn’t pop up notifications, but as soon as I open the app I see it at the top of my chat list with a little blue circle of 1,000,000 new messages. I select “archive” and it HALLELUJAH goes away, but THEN (two minutes later) someone sends another message and it pops to the top again... PLEEEEEEEEASE, pretty please with a cherry on top, make a way for me to mute and archive chats that I can control and decide when I want to start seeing them at the top of my chats list again... Please. It would be a life saver.

  • Needs Applewatch support & a little work

    by Soundingon

    Firstly. This desperately needs to have an applewatch app. Desperately!! Of all the social networking/chat apps I have… Line.. wechat… this is the only that DOESN’T support the Applewatch… And I use this WAY more than those apps... Whatsapp incoming calls need work. When someone calls me using Whatsapp, I can never hear anything. I always have to call the person back. Also, I can’t use my bluetooth headphones with the calls and the same pop up notification keeps coming to ask me to turn on notifications. Shouldn't that be my option? Would be great if that would be taken off of the app. It’s the only app I use that does this...

  • Consistently consistent

    by Ðee

    This app has got to be the oldest if not one of the oldest message/phone calls/video calls apps that allows you to perform all above mentioned communication methods via WiFi. A huge perk is that you may do this in both inside and outside your country cellular limits as long as you are connected to WiFi. There is no unlimited usage in all forms of travel. It varies if you are on a cruise for example, or if you are on a specific travel package when you fly outside of the country- in which the responsibility lies between you and your service provider, not WhatsApp. This is a fantastic app. Easy to use and straight to the point. Thanks WhatsApp!!!

  • Thank you!

    by Ibby11

    On behalf of my neighbors and me, I would like to sincerely thank the WhatsApp crew for a quality service that helped us help our flooded neighbors after Hurricane Harvey! WhatsApp worked when all other forms of contact would not work after the hurricane. We were able to create groups to communicate dire information quickly, efficiently, and without interruption. This allowed us to rescue neighbors, get medical help from neighbors who are part of the medical community when 911 was not working, and then organize volunteer work crews to start checking in on elderly neighbors and finally create volunteer remediation crews. WhatsApp, you are exemplary! Thank you, thank you! Elizabeth SW Houston Texas

  • The Saving Grace of Communicating

    by jetsettingdoug

    Thanks WhatsApp for providing a free and reliable means of keeping in touch with family and friends all the time. I can’t imagine how I would have been able to do so otherwise. While traveling globally, I am able to share and receive updates and messages from my love ones all the time. You have truly revolutionize communication by making it attainable for everyone. I think I can safely say that it’s because of you why Verizon and all the other networks have made texting unlimited and part of their pricing. If I should give an award to the number one most reliable App for communication, it would definitely be WhatsApp.

  • Chat bubbles

    by Treborgrose

    I love WhatsApp! I’ve used it several times to communicate with other friends that don’t own any other social media like Snapchat or Instagram. However for the friends that do not own iPhones neither I like to feel like we are still texting over iMessage. I know many other apps with this feature but not quite as clean as WhatsApp. The feature I am hinting at is the ability to change the chat bubble color. The light green does sometimes get boring or make me think of an older app off the iPod from way back when. If we had the ability to change the color of the chat bubble color I could change the color anytime I wanted and wouldn’t get bored and eventually overtime ask the people I’m texting to switch to an alternative app.

  • Voice notes stopping music all together

    by Indua

    There was an update that came out a while back that currently causes for the voice notes to stop your music even after you finish listening to the voice note, at least for iPhones. I’m not sure about androids. Before when you would listen to a voice note and was listening to music beforehand it would pause the music, play the voice note and then play the music back, but with the current update it no longer does that and it’s frustrating. I truly love this app because this is how I communicate with my fiancé and family from back home. I would greatly appreciate it if you guys consider fixing this tiny issue. Thank you in advance!

  • Profile Photos

    by panashesgirl

    WhatsApp I think is the best social app to chat with friends, family and everyone else. And so far I can’t complain about anything. Just there is one thing that some people might enjoy, I know I would. Is if you could choose which people could view your profile photo. Because maybe if you put a profile photo up, certain people that don’t like you, may view it and message you about it saying nasty things.. or you may just want to keep your life private from those who are in your contacts but Arnt exactly a part of something you’d put on your profile photo. Otherwise everything else is perfect!

  • Wish I could lock the record button easier

    by rawest2063

    First I’d like to say I love this app. Best app out there for communicating with family friends and friends on the other side of the world. Now the downside. Being a voiceover user on Apple, I wish there was an easy way to lock the record button. Sometimes holding your thumb there after a long time becomes a problem and you relax your finger or flex it or something, and then there goes your message that you haven’t completed yet. If there was some sort of magic That a voiceover user could do like a two finger double tap on the screen that might be a solution. I’m not sure. Wish we could resolve this issue. Otherwise again this app is fantastic.

  • Great Avenue for Communicating

    by SimpleComplex24

    Due to relocation outside of the US, this app has been my “go to” and main source of communicating with family and friends. I have tried other apps similar such as Skype, however his app by far is the best in regards to quality and reliability. I rarely have issues with calls and video chats dropping and the messaging is superb. The picture quality while using video is very clear and although my family and I are thousands of miles away, with the use of this app we are still able to feel a sense of home. If you’re considering this app, I say give it a try, just make sure the ppl who you are trying to stay in contact with have the app as well and you’re good to go!

  • Great app. One small problem.

    by Yosemite gg

    So I've always used WhatsApp as my primary form of communication, and I've never had any problems with it until today. When using broadcast lists, the recipients can't tell that the message was sent to a broadcast. I really like the broadcast list rather than creating a group because on a group everybody gets every reply, which is usually unnecessary. But when I use a broadcast list I get a lot of messages asking if I meant to send to a group. It's not a big deal at all so I still give the app five stars. Just something to keep in mind for future updates. I also really like that WhatsApp now has automatic playthrough.

  • So convenient!

    by seadooxp20

    I really love the voice text feature. Being able to fast forward the message to the middle or the end is really helpful and saves me time. And you can also delete a message if you sent it before the persons opened it. That’s an amazing feature! Also what’s better about the WhatsApp is when you’re recording an audio message and someone calls in you don’t lose the entire message. When using my iPhone audio text messaging I lose the entire message if somebody calls in or if my battery is at a low percentage. So grateful to have WhatsApp on my phone. Thank U thank U thank U for creating it!

  • Mostly a Great App

    by artemisja9

    This app works great for the most part. I like the feel of using iMessage with my friends who don’t own iPhones. My biggest issue right now is that, since the last update, the message input bar will appear in the middle of the screen, sometimes covering the most recent messages with empty space or my keyboard and I can’t scroll down any farther. I think this app would benefit from an option to not automatically save pictures, taken and sent from WhatsApp, to the camera roll. For the most part, if I take a picture specifically to send to someone and it’s not a picture I took outside of the app, it’s something not important enough to waste the space on my phone.

  • iOS 12 broke WhatsApp missed call notification?

    by Khrisztian

    Back in the day with iOS 11 if you missed a WhatsApp voice call the notification will sit on the lock screen as any other (cell) voice call, thanks to CallKit integration into the phone UI. With iOS 12 that’s no longer the case and when I have missed calls I see a WhatsApp notification. It doesn’t come from the phone UI. (Calls can be answered just fine as before). The issue with this is that I can’t return missed calls from the lock screen without unlocking the phone. (As with ‘normal’ cell phone calls) I’m sure it’s a minor glitch that can be fixed.

  • Great, improved App

    by Kakape

    This app is great especially the calling part of it. It has revolutionized the app calling as a new way of reaching friends without a hassle as is the case with other app calling types. Many at times when I get call from friends on other apps & we seem to be having connection problems even with full wifi, they would ask, "don't u have what's app? Why not use that! It's clearer & no interruptions". I want to suggest that the developers should put in a feature that will allow administrators to delete messages and videos from reaching all persons that are considered unacceptable. Thanks & continue to improve.

  • Custom backgrounds

    by Katkatlauren

    I just started using WhatsApp yesterday and so far so good! Works like my other chat apps so far and pretty user friendly and easy to navigate. My one request would be if in a future version, you could allow us to select a custom background for each contact, like how we are able to in WeChat? I am usually chatting with multiple people at once, bouncing back and forth between chats. The custom background is very helpful for me to see who I’m chatting with instantly at a glance! This way I can avoid ooops situations of chatting the wrong person which has happened to me numerous times since I’m chatting multiple people all at once. Otherwise so far this app is good 👍 Thanks!

  • Best app ever made

    by iThinkthat...

    This is hands down the best app they have ever come up with. The level of mobility and peace this app has given me has been life changing. You can go to a new city and just from there find anything you need and how to get there-there’s no struggle at all. It’s really simple and easy. Also I’ve never gotten lost using this app. The best part is you can save places you’d like to visit and then later on, click them and find your way. So it’s great for travel on vacation. I highly, highly recommend this app- it will help you discover new ways of getting places and new places. It’s very safe and great for teens as well. 5 stars

  • Thread reply like iMessage please!

    by NBow710

    I love this app it’s how my bf and I were able to communicate while I was away in Mexico since my service wasn’t always great out there. The only thing I don’t like about this app is that if my phone is locked and I have more than one message from the same person, once I reply to one message from the lock screen, all the other messages disappear with it. I’m them forced to open the app completely to be a let to reply to the other messages. I wish we were able to open the message thread on the lock screen like we can with iMessage reply to all the messages and close out without having to unlock the phone and open the app.

  • Perfect text and calls

    Im sooooo very lonely in USA and I'm very poor to pay normal international calls. God bless who invented and keep and offer us free this site cause I can talk with friends and family and do not feel soooooo lonely here. I love it. It IS free.

I love everybody here and I ll never forget how wonderful this country is !!!!! The land of brave really ❤️💕

  • A few suggestions

    by Sz_7

    - Can you please remove "Tap here for contact info" line that appears below the contact name/number? It just delays the online status of the contact. Removing it will let us check online status of contacts faster. - Adding a symbol beside/on the profile picture of the contact to indicate they are currently online (like that green circle in Facebook Messenger) is definitely worth adding. - Instead of selecting a picture and then tapping "add" then select multiple pictures, why isn't there a multiple picture mode in the first place? A "select mode" available from the start once I decide to share media would make the process much more convenient.

  • WhatsApp forever

  • More features

    by ChinkyEyesDadu

    I absolutely like WhatsApp. I use it to make international calls to my loves ones, and stay in contact with them. One feature that I would like to see is the ability to see when someone reads your message on a group chat as well as the people that are currently online. Going back to the persons message to check whether they are online can be a hassle. Saving it’s user some time is definitely a plus and this app will gain more users. Just like Facebook/messenger has an icon to inform you whose online, if this app has the same thing that would be extremely useful to its user.

  • Great App

    by KSH 2016

    I’ve been using WhatsApp for long time and it’s a great app to call or chat with my family and friends , but since the last update, they only let you to send or share your messages to only five contacts at a time . And I did send them an email, and they say , this is their new regulation. But when I asked my friends about it , they were surprised, since they can share their chat or messages to 20 contacts at a time , I even checked my Brother’ WhatsApp sure enough I did send a message to 20 of his contacts. And we both have iPhone 7 pulse with latest iOS and latest WhatsApp. So far it looks like I’m the only one that I could share my messages to only five of my contacts and this is not fare .

  • Great App, But One Persistent Problem

    by Sabor Místico

    This app makes communication so easy and economical almost anywhere. I really appreciate it! Several glitches have recently been fixed as well. Thanks for that! One persistent glitch that has not been effectively addressed is that no matter how I configure the notifications, whenever I receive a WhatsApp message now, it just pops up right in the center of my screen instead of at the top, as I had set it up to do. This gets in the way of anything I may be doing, like streaming a show, or using another app. Interestingly, after the latest update, my messages started appearing as a banner at the top of the screen - as they once used to do - and they lingered there (as I also set them up to do) but out of the way. So I thought the problem had finally been fixed. However, after an hour or two, the WhatsApp messages I received went right back to popping up right in the center of my screen; obstructing everything. PLEASE fix this issue once and for all because it’s been a while. Meanwhile, 4 ⭐️’s for a great program!

  • Great app but I have a suggestion

    by ChOlo mAyoR

    WhatsApp is really great. It deserves five stars. I have a suggestion, however. I think that WhatsApp should have a function that automatically changes your about according to your location and the time. You should only have to allow permission to the location and fill out some information. For example, say you’re heading to the gym. On the way, your about will say “I’m driving”. When you get there, it says “At the gym”. This is a suggestion I have that I believe will make WhatsApp even better than it already is. I hope y’all take this into consideration. Thank you!

  • Love the app BUT....

    by inga_daya

    Great app. I love that I get to speak to my friends over seas, however, the voice message portion of the app can be frustrating. I don’t particularly enjoy texting so I always us the voice message feature and a lot of the times when you record your message the slightest movement can throw your message into the garbage bin and then you have to re-record the whole message. Often times you cannot recreate the moment or verbalize exactly the way you did in the previous message that very inconveniently jumps into the bin. I think the microphone should be moved else where, away from the bottom right corner in a more convenient spot where this does not happen. Whatapp, can you please PLEASE PLEEEEAAAASE do something about this?

  • Venezuela, The Ticks are falling off...

    by EDivo

    It’s been 20 years since Venezuela was captured by a group of terrorists, drug traffickers and they, Venezuelans haven’t been able to shake them off; it’s like if a million ticks wwell attached to it’s skin and they’re draining the blood of the Venezuelan collective. Why I’ve chosen Venezuela as the subject, because, had it not been because of apps like WhatsApp, it would’ve been easier for this bunch of blood suckers to finish off the crown of South America, Venezuela. We’ve seen many pictures, impacting pictures through which the world at large, even though ever slow for those suffering the ways of the so called Socialist-communist Revolución del Siglo XXl have been able to see first hand the atrocities of such revolution; too bad others didn’t have you as a way for news to scape the ‘island of the Damned’. Cuba. For 60 years they have endured the heavy hand of the Castro brothers, God will know what to do with them. So, in the name of all Venezuelans, thank you, WhatsApp for being there; ‘the ticks’ are falling off.

  • One more thing

    by Zakir naik

    This new update was amazing before when someone calls while I was recording a message about 5 minutes or more It will delete and I'll get upset but thanks to the new update that dosent happen any more but before the update I can use other apps while listening to voice messages from the WhatsApp and and the recording will still be playing I loved that but know that dosent happen anymore once you leave the app the voice message you played will stop until you resume to the app so I hope you guys can bring that back again thank you very much

  • Love it, but......

    by WiseGuy1212

    I have loved this app for YEARS!!! I have always been able to send longer videos than I could ever do in a text or through messenger. There was a time when I was able to send a huge 4gb 12 minute video file. It would be compressed but still looked great. Through various updates they’ve continually changed the size it would let you send and receive. Fortunately I can still forward those large files, since I did them in the past. However, I can no longer upload and send files that large anymore (unless I'm forwarding one I had uploaded back when I could). Please don’t put these limits on these videos anymore

  • Latest update horrible

    by Joefam

    Latest update gives notifications without names. Huge upsetting glitch. Please fix fast. I updated this to 4 stars after getting a response from WhatsApp explaining that they had changed the settings to enable seeing name only. The reason for not giving 5 stars is that the method of doing so is not intuitive and doesn’t really make sense. It involves enabling preview in WhatsApp and disabling on your iPhone. Other apps just give the option of “name only” , “name and message “ or “just alert” (check Signal). It’s a simple thing and would make the app perfect again rather than a series of illogical steps that threw off many users

  • Great for traveling but wish for a couple of changes

    by dvonlehman

    WhatsApp was incredibly useful while living in Panama for two months where absolutely everyone is on it. While overall I like the app, there’s a couple of things that I wished worked differently. First is the integration with the native iOS contacts. When initiating a conversation with someone I’m not going to have an ongoing relationship with (like an Airbnb host or tour guide contact) I really don’t want to put them in my primary address book. Secondly auto saving messaged photos and videos to my photos app is really intrusive and annoying. My photos are auto uploaded to Google Photos where I have to delete these WhatsApp media I never wanted to keep in the first place.

  • Great App-- Takes up too much space

    by Eros Kine

    Great app... a lot of my friends and family use this app. Only bad thing is it backs up everything and fills up your phone because it automatically downloads media that is sent to you and all your chat history.... takes up too much space and wants you to delete apps to make space for this one... relax I did not ask for you to archive everything....even when I take the option off, for some reason what's app is a space hoarder and my phone has to ask me to delete apps for space....That's the only thing going against it....

  • Archiving issue

    by Desertdesert123

    Dears i have a question and in the same time of improving Archived masaages. Whatsapp is a great app till now and it saved a lot of money and connected beloved ones with each other no matter how far they are. I was just woundering if i am archiving something cant it stay in the archive eventhough that the person is still sending massages, and that the only way to see them is through archieve and not in the main page? Cant you make something that we can sort people like a in mail junk or spam and the only way that we can see their massages is through their??

  • Voice Audio Note Feature Needs Improvement

    by angryuser14

    I am am avid user of WhatsApp and the audio note feature that allows me to send voice memos rather than typing out my messages. Recently a new update allowing handsfree voice recording released, and it has really improved my experience. There is something else, however, that really needs to be changed. Often times I will be in the middle of recording an audio note when suddenly I receive a phone call. When this happens, my entire audio note erases and I lose everything I had just recorded prior to receiving the call. I have been 5 or 6 minutes into record when this happens, and it makes me really angry that it just all of the sudden erases. To fix this issue, can something be done, please, that either pauses the recording so that it can later be resumed, or forces the recording to send immediately upon receiving a call? It’s very frustrating to start a new recording repeating myself. When this happens, WhatsApp will be a 5-star app for me. Thank you.

  • Whatsapp saved the day during hurricane Irma

    by SirMegatron

    I've never been so eager to tell and write a review about how great the WhatsApp application was after hurricane Irma hit Miami. Even though I could not make phone calls or send regular text messages with my iPhone7s for long periods of hours - WhatsApp was able to send text messages without cellular data service or an available internet connection! I totally underestimated the power of WhatsApp. This powerful communication tool was there when everything else failed. It brought light and hope when we were cut off from the outside world.

  • Reliable and intuitive

    by D2DMac

    Great communication tool. We use it for our online football league. Able to mass communicate and integrate with address book. The end to end encryption is a great feature and it works on multiple platforms seamlessly. The interface is simple. Caution should be exercised by ensuring you understand that pictures and videos will load to your camera roll and the cloud by default. You can disable this feature in settings. It caught be by surprise when someone in the league posted pictures of his girlfriend and their trip to New York. Thankfully I had an ironclad alibi.

  • Groups

    by MOIIII1

    I totally love this app. Like this is my main texting app that I use and I couldn’t live without it. But I have one complaint. When someone makes a group they become the admin. So my brother made a group for my family and he is the admin but he didn’t make anyone else admin because that was the last thing on his mind. He recently broke his phone and changed his number. So there is no way to add his new number or remove his old one. If their is a way to fix this that would be great. Maybe like a voting system. Like everyone can vote whether you want to kick an admin or add a new one because that would be great. But don’t get me wrong i still love this app.

  • Safe and secure

    by LCS II

    Over the years, we have used multiple applications for video and written communications for our small business and projects we were involved in. Many of those projects were International. Additionally many of the projects and much of the planning involved international financial transactions for our customer base. Increasing security for these communications became vital for our business, for our customers and for our integrity. This is what drew our Company to What’s App. We are extremely happy with our decision to exclusively utilize What’s App due to What’s App’s ability to encrypt our communications.

  • Best chat app in the world

    by John Weeks

    This is a wonderful chat app! Far ahead of any other chat app! The only two improvements I can think of (and some may disagree these are useful) but 1. Ability to "react" to messages 2. Ability to see entire communication history in chat, specifically seeing phone calls in chat. Outgoing and complete. This will allow me to see Hey we chatted, had a phone call, etc! Otherwise great app, love the ability to quote messages, ability to see messages as you're answering. Saving photos to camera roll! Change chat background picture. Top notch!

  • What’s App!

    by RaHChaseApp

    I was reluctant to use the app for a long time, since I really don’t communicate with anyone overseas. My nephew put it on my phone when he recently travelled to Europe so we could text while he was away & I was reminded I not only have a friend who now lives in Italy, I also have a friend who’s lived in Israel for decades! Currently, I’m communicating with another friend who’s vacationing in Europe all summer, have already been in touch with my friend in Italy & plan to contact my friend in Israel soon! Additionally, I have been communicating with a lot of different people from many countries via What’s App, glad I finally relented.

  • Best App ever !.

    by LissaButters

    When you guys update , can you guys put the option wether you can turn off or turn on the checks in a conversation ? For instance if I’m talking to someone , but you don’t want to keep talking to them I can have the option to mute it , like they can only see that only 1 check has delivered when they send the message. but still be able to talk to others , but just mute that particular conversation that you want , so when they send a message , it will only appear one check ✅ ... this app is the best app , I love the new updates , please continue to have awesome updates !.

  • A Great App, but not Perfect

    by b_aslam

    I love this app, I really do. It's got features ahead of its time, and I'm a huge fan of the end to end encryption! However, I do think some improvements could be made. A search function in chats, improvements to audio and video calls, and lastly the ability to set individual chat wallpapers. This app however is great, it's zipping fast. It hasn't crashed on me. Another great thing is using whatsapp on the web, the only downside to that is that your phone just be on and connected to the internet. So if you lose your phone for example or the battery dies, you still can't see any messages from whatsapp.

  • Great for my students

    by Instructor29

    I'm a program director for a medical lab science program. Two years ago we were all talking about exchanging numbers to keep in contact by texting. One of the students suggested using What's App. Before I knew it, we had a group set up with a cute logo and easy communication between us all. The communications are secure, don't require divulging phone numbers, and is reliable. This past year I suggested What's App to my new group of students. It was another hit with them, and they had a group name and a great logo. I'm recommending it to this year's class. I'm sure they'll like it too!

  • Let the device vibrate

    by Saehu

    As you call someone and he didn't picked up, the device vibrates when calling process finishes, can you the same when you are calling and he answers the call ?? In this case you will have to cancel the ending vibration, just a question to the developers, this is needed when you call someone and you neglect your phone until they answes but you don't notice that, if you are going to tell me use the handsfree mode, I will tell you this mode is useless when you are having a noisy around place, please consider this in the next update please, thank you

  • My screen won’t lock or turn off.

    by Parkourabdul

    Phone in use: iPhone 6 Plus iOS: 12.0.1 Problem: When on the phone using WhatsApp. The screen will not lock or turn off when I put it aside. Every time I am done using the phone. I have to manually lock it and turn of the screen. This only happened when I am connected to a wired or Bluetooth headset. When using the phone normally. The screen will turn off when not being used. (On/off speaker). The proximity sensor works just fine when I hold the phone next to my ear as a regular call. The phone will not turn off/lock when using headphones or a Bluetooth connection.

  • App for Apple Watch please! 🙏🏻

    by Simbadhd

    WhatsApp is without a doubt the best social networking app I’ve ever used. And I’ve been using it for more years than I can count. Pretty much from the beginning. And as times and technology have changed and advanced, so have the app’s features and capabilities. Now for the reason I had to take off a star: Despite WhatsApp’s developments and advances it is still terribly behind in one area. And that is creating an app for Apple Watch users. Or at least a functional notification and response menu. So that when you receive a voice message from someone, you can actually listen to it without having to go to your phone. Which is the whole point of Apple Watch in the first place. And regarding the response options. It would be nice to be able to send more than one single emoji back, or to reply with a voice message, or at least proof/change your dictated message if there’s a mistake in it. Basically make an Apple Watch WhatsApp app!! Or improve existing interface for it

  • So cool

    by cupcake🤯

    I think WhatsApp is amazing 🤩because you can contact any person you want with just typing. WhatsApp also gives you the option to call 📞message or even face time 🎥someone. I personally enjoy the status as it gives you the opportunity to share with others🗣. I am a person who loves❤️ to change my backgrounds and I am happy 😁that WhatsApp can let you change your chat wallpaper. You first need to have the contact and make sure they have WhatsApp and add them to it😝. And it doesn’t use as much data as messages does 💳so enjoy the app 🤣

    It would be a great feature if when any of your contacts are online, we can tell by an indicator by their name.

    I love WhatsApp and I’ve used it for many many years. I’m sadden to know, however, that when we restore our chat backups, the media files doesn’t transfer over as any other chat apps would. I’ve researched extensively and seems like many others have the same issues - media files not restoring correctly after restoring from backup. The trickiness and complication of WhatsApp’s backup is becoming a reluctant issue for me to continuously use the app. Any help resolving the would be much appreciated.
