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. The only glaring problem with WhatsApp is its lack of video call support, which should be mandatory for messaging apps these days. WhatsApp recently shed its yearly subscription, which was once an admittedly paltry $0.99, going totally free and opening it up to even more consumers.
WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile communications app developed by WhatsApp Inc.

WhatsApp Messenger makes use of your mobile data plan or Wi-Fi connection to communicate with other users through voice calls and text messages, without incurring MMS, SMS, or voice call charges. 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.

WhatsApp Messenger creates users' accounts through their phone numbers, which means no more creating a new account and memorizing yet another username and password. The app will also import users' 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.
