About WhatsApp Messenger

Editors Review
WhatsApp is one of the most popular and oldest smartphone messaging apps around. It doesn't have a particularly interesting feature set, but it makes up for it with a huge user base and excellent quality of service that's pretty much unmatched. It also allows for regular chat log backups, a feature sorely missed in many messaging apps out there. And now that the service has shed its yearly subscription, which was once an admittedly paltry $0.99, it's opened itself up to even more users. The only glaring problem with WhatsApp is its lack of video call support, which should be mandatory for messaging apps these days.
WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile communications app developed by WhatsApp Inc.

WhatsApp Messenger allows you to make voice calls and send text messages to other WhatsApp users, without incurring MMS, SMS, or voice call charges from your carrier other than the requisite consumption of your data plan. The app is free even when calling international users, and works on any internet connection regardless of location, saving on roaming charges or international call costs.

Creating an account with WhatsApp doesn't need you to memorize yet another username and password - all you need is your phone number. The app will also import your address books, which automatically adds contacts who are also using WhatsApp with their phone numbers.

Aside from standard communication methods, the app also allows for group chats, broadcast messages to multiple contacts, and easy multimedia sharing of voice messages, videos, and images. Users will also be able to receive messages even while they're offline, getting all missed texts as soon as they go back online.
