WhatsApp Messenger is a multiplatform instant messaging application used to chat, send emoticons, multimedia content, locations and contact information. Developed by the company with the same name, this client has been considered a complete revolution among users thanks to its compatibility with all mobile platforms at the moment. Right now, if you don’t communicate is because you don’t want to.
For those who don’t know it yet, SMS are a thing from the past. So, if you are still using them, it may be time to make some changes. Apart from being a worldwide famous app, WhatsApp lets you talk to millions of users with no ads and in real time. So it is logical that developers decided to make a trial version and demand a fee after a year of free license –although in Nokia devices you don’t need to pay.
There is no doubt that the way of communicating has been changed. People look for instant responses and high speed. We all live in a rush, so we want a fast application that everybody would download. There are two characteristics that make WhatsApp Messenger one of the most used apps in the world. The first one is being available for all mobile platforms –Android, iPhone, Symbian or Windows Phone, etc. The second one is having the same good performance in all of them.
How does it work?
After the moment you download WhatsApp Messenger a little bit annoying installation comes, in which you will have to register your phone in order to pay the subscription. After that, you can start looking for all your contacts that use WhatsApp. By the moment you run the software it will display all your contacts in its main screen, which the application has installed on your mobile. You just have to select a contact to start talking to him or her, or typing their name by selecting the glass icon.
With WhatsApp Messenger you can chat with contacts either in individual conversations or in chat groups, which support up to 30 users. One of the latest changes of the application is the Push to Talk option, in which you can send audio messages apart from text. Sending multimedia content like video, photos, audio, contact numbers or even your location thanks to Google Maps integration, are the functions which complete your messaging experience with other users. WhatsApp has also enough customization options to allow you to change the way you see notifications, the background, your profile pic and your status message.
