WhatsApp Messenger review
WhatsApp Messenger is an extremely popular and free text messaging application developed for mobile devices. As you know, there are usually preinstalled apps of this kind on smartphones which allow to call and send messages. But usually, they are too simple and do not deliver interesting features. That is why we highly recommend to consider WhatsApp packed with options and delivering a lot of opportunities for enhancing the experience. It works on Inter Networking with advantages. WhatsApp Messenger provides users with unlimited ability to exchange text messages. The sent content is encrypted meaning that your privacy is protected here.
Though, you should be careful, because the app shares your data with Facebook but you can deny this option when you first download the app. The app is completely legal and very popular. Really, you can send thousands of messages during a day without any charge. Though, of course, there are data fees in accordance with your carrier's plan. And the coolest moment is that we are speaking not only about textual messages. You can send videos and GIFs both to a person or groups. Apply filters and various effects and make calls with nice support. Send and receive attached documents, photos, and videos.
The app is very easy to download and use. It has a simple interface, shows text bubbles when you are chatting, warns a user when his message has been viewed by a recipient, identifies friends from a contact list using the app currently, and suggests a lot of convenient options. You can join a group chat by tapping the name of an involved person. The app allows to communicate with people being not in a contact list or even not users of WhatsApp.
Use this service for chatting and free internet-based international calling. Why is it free? WhatsApp uses Wi-Fi connection or a phone’s cellular and that makes it possible to talk to anyone in any place in the world without additional charges. It is even possible to arrange collaboration in teams but the number of participators is restricted here. At that, the service remains to be free. Can you imagine that?! There are no extra payments for international calling!
And in addition, you can choose your background, show your location on an interactive map, block anyone from your contact list, and refuse that blocking, and do a lot of other things.
This app is very popular and affordable because it can be installed almost on any device. You can benefit from a desktop version too. It is reliable and safe. Of course, it is not the only one. Such a nice service as Viber Messanger is a direct competitor. But still, WhatsApp Messenger gains in popularity being the leader in this segment of the world market.
Speaking about downsides, we should mention some restrictions. If you do not have this app installed on your device, you cannot join your chatting friends if they do. Again we would draw your attention, that the service is free but it does not cancel any data charges which can be. We recommend this application.
