WhatsApp is a free instant messaging application, owned by Facebook since 2014, and which became the most popular app of its type. WhatsApp uses your mobile data (4G, 3G, 2G, EDGE) or WiFi, when available, to permit users to send/receive text or voice messages and initiate voice calls or video calls. Also, with WhatsApp, users can share documents, images, videos, and so on with their contacts. Now, WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11 Beta is available with new features.
WhatsApp is the most popular instant messaging application, and there are some excellent reasons for that. First, WhatsApp is entirely free to use as long as you have unlimited data plan or use WiFi connection to send messages and call your friends with WhatsApp. Secondly, WhatsApp is more than a messenger application, as it’s also allowing users to share files with their contacts.
Besides, WhatsApp permits group chats, and it also comes with a web-based version that you can use on desktop PCs. Nonetheless, you don’t need to sign up on WhatsApp as you do on Facebook or Twitter for example. All you have to do is to enter your phone number, verify it within the app via SMS or voice call, and that’s all.
