WhatsApp Messenger


WhatsApp.

This is a world where people connect more in the online world than they do in the real life. If we talk about some of the most famous social media apps which have brought people together, these would include Facebook and Twitter. After different social media apps, since they connect mostly through the messaging services, the second biggest platform would be the instant messaging apps. Talking of these apps, it is the time that we introduce you to WhatsApp which is without any doubt the biggest instant messaging app used worldwide. It is definitely due to the quality features of the app which are faster, more, and better than any other service present online. We will be reviewing this app for you today and if you want to download it for Android, get the free WhatsApp APK right now from our website and start using this amazing app. Well, we are not yet done with the introduction of WhatsApp. It is the biggest freeware voice over IP and instant messaging platform where the options are unlimited for you. Whether you just want to text with your loved ones and friends, you want to do free voice and video calls, send voice notes, send music, documents, pictures, and videos, and hence, anything of communication can be performed for absolutely free and only the data charges apply there. It was back in January 2009 which app initially got released and wasn’t as big as it is now. Back then, you were only able to do messaging on it and send documents and pictures etc. However, now it is a much bigger platform where you can do voice and video calls, messages, share documents, music, and videos, which is something none of the other instant messaging apps could ever bring.

WhatsApp Features and Review:

It becomes really difficult to review an app which already has more than 1 Billion users all over the world. After its release, it is an app which has seen many phases and today, it stands as the most used instant messaging and voice over IPs. Before WhatsApp, there were many other instant messaging apps. Some were known for their fast and free messaging services while some were known for their voice and video call services. There was not a single app which could bring every necessary feature altogether. This is when an app like this one was introduced to the users and it completely changed the trend of the competition in this department. The users could now do everything thing for absolutely free where all they had to do was to manage a smartphone and an internet connection where there are many service providers providing that for free as well. Now if you just want to connect with the people, you need to send important documents, or you simply need to share stuff, everything that you need is there on the WhatsApp. Also, one of the things which people love about this platform is the compatibility and support which is simply massive. If we talk about the smartphones operating systems, WhatsApp is available on each and every platform including the Android, IOS, BlackBerry, and Microsoft Windows. And, not only smartphones, if you want to use it on your computers such as desktops, laptops, and Mac computer, you can always use it there as well, however, the method may change over there. But, the point is that after Facebook, an app which has broken every record of compatibility is WhatsApp and there is no doubt that this will keep winning the hearts of the users.

This review is going to be a long one since we have so much to discuss this app. After being done with the basic features and the compatibility, let us now move on to the user accounts and security. Well, here is another place where the app really rocked. The instant messaging apps before this one such as KIK and BlackBerry messenger asked the users to create a new account like Facebook just so they could start using the app. The way WhatsApp made it easier is that it asks the users to enter their mobile phone number and an account for them will be created which requires no password and other crappy stuff. All you need to do is to simply enter your number in the app and after the verification by sending you a code, you will be able to start using the app. Your data will be stored in your respective cloud if you are an Android, Windows Phone, and IOS user.

Getting Started with WhatsApp:

When you start using WhatsApp after entering your number and getting it verified, you are asked to enter a name where you can either use your real name or some nick. You can upload your picture and put a status so that you can start using that with the people. Once you have done that, the app will sync to the contact in your phone and add them to your contact list in the app but only the people who have activated the app for themselves of course. You can now choose a person to text from your contact list. You can either send them a message, do voice calls video calls, and you can also send the voice notes to get started with communication. We shall now move ahead and discuss the security features of the app.

Security:

A couple of years ago, the security on WhatsApp was not as good as it is now. So before then, there were people who could exploit your account by hacking into your messages and documents where you had sent and shared through the app. However, while the concerns were raised by the users, the developers behind the app introduced the end-to-end encryption where everything you send and share is encrypted and is only decrypted when the person, on the other hand, receives them himself. Well, this was something which completely removed the concerns of the users and now they are using an app which is secured to the maximum. If you have deleted WhatsApp and someone sends you anything, nobody will be able to see those messages unless you open them yourself. Also, no one can use your number to activate their account since it is activated through a code sent in the text by the company.

Text Messages:

While we have discussed the security and some other personal features, it is the time that we now discuss the communication features of the app. Well, as far as the most basic meaning is concerned that is the text message, it has always been there since the inception of the app and it has only got better with the time. When you send someone a text message on this app, it is protected by the end-to-end encryption when ensures the security and also when the messages are delivered, it is indicated by ‘double marks’ and when a person has read the message, the double marks turn blue giving you an indication.

Voice Calls:

As far as the voice and video call feature of the app are concerned, it has also only improved over the years. Well, it was not long ago when a voice call was introduced and even though there some connectivity issues before, they got solved by the developers and we now enjoy voice calls which are made without any interruption and with loud and clear sound. However, this also depends on the internet connection you have. If your internet is faster, you will be able to enjoy the best services you will get. However, a slower connection may cause some problems but this feature on the app is designed to consume as less date as possible and also in a very slow speed, a lot of data can be transferred.

Video Calls:

Just like the voice calls, the introduction of this features on this instant messaging platforms was a little bit shaky and the problems were enormous. But as the time passed, the developers of the app proved that how good they are at doing their job and within no time, the users started getting a smooth experience in video calls as well, where only a normal 3g connection would be enough to do some smooth video calling. Moreover, there are still some features which users are demanding which includes the conference voice and video call which they might introduce soon, however, that will only be limited to the groups.

Groups and Broadcasts:

The idea of the groups isn’t very new since doesn’t matter which instant messaging platform you can think of, all of them provide you the feature of making groups and enjoy the conversations in them. However, WhatsApp made it even better since it made the sharing of the document, audio files, contacts, and other stuff much easier and faster in the group and that is why people prefer to make groups on this platform rather than other platforms where the features for these are truly limited. Besides the groups, the app made the announcements and advertising of something which you are selling even easier with the broadcasts. The broadcasts are also a free feature and you can make your own broadcast by adding your friend where you can always share and announce things without other interrupting you and this has made the advertisement and publishing much easier for the people. The security of these features is also quite enormous and while you are sharing some stuff, you do not need to worry about the privacy since they are always going to be protected by the service providers.

Status and Sharing:

So a year or more has passed since WhatsApp have also introduced the status and story sharing feature. This is just like the stories on apps like Snapchat where people can record and capture something and put that in the news feed which can only be seen by their contacts. Since these are stories and unlike the news feed on Facebook, these disappear after every 24 hours and do not exist permanently. You can also delete them before time and if you want to share them only with some special people, you can change the sharing privacy settings in the app. You can share pictures, write statuses, share videos, music, and other stuff which you want to share and enjoy more and more with your friends.
