What is WhatsApp?
WhatsApp is a free, mobile app that allows users to send messages to one another through a 3G or Wi-Fi Internet connection, allowing users to avoid traditional SMS fees.
How does WhatsApp work?
Once you and your friends have downloaded the app, you can create a personal profile, which includes your name and photo, then begin sending messages to one another! WhatsApp allows users to send videos, photos, voice notes and your current location to any other WhatsApp user as well as participate in group chats. One of the most innovative features of WhatsApp is its voice messaging. This feature allows you to record a spoken message and send it to a contact, making it easy to message friends when you don’t have two hands available to text!
What devices does it work on?
WhatsApp is available on iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Nokia and Windows Phones. Users can message other WhatsApp users with any of those devices.
How much does WhatsApp cost?
The app, which is free to download, is free of charge for the first year and costs 99 cents each year after. That comes out to less than 10 cents a month for unlimited text messaging! But before you go crazy texting everyone on your contact list, remember to actually dial every now and then–your mom will thank you.
