WhatsApp from Facebook

WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for Android and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.

WHY USE WHATSAPP:

• NO FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family, so you don't have to pay for every message or call.* There are no subscription fees to use WhatsApp.

• MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.

• FREE CALLS: Call your friends and family for free with WhatsApp Calling, even if they're in another country.* WhatsApp calls use your phone's Internet connection rather than your cellular plan's voice minutes. (Note: Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details. Also, you can't access 911 and other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp).

• GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group chats with your contacts so you can easily stay in touch with your friends or family.

• WHATSAPP WEB: You can also send and receive WhatsApp messages right from your computer's browser.

• NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: There's no extra charge to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world and avoid international SMS charges.*

• SAY NO TO USERNAMES AND PINS: Why bother having to remember yet another username or PIN? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS, and integrates seamlessly with your phone's existing address book.

• ALWAYS LOGGED IN: With WhatsApp, you're always logged in so you don't miss messages. No more confusion about whether you're logged in or logged out.

• QUICKLY CONNECT WITH YOUR CONTACTS: Your address book is used to quickly and easily connect you with your contacts who have WhatsApp so there's no need to add hard-to-remember usernames.

• OFFLINE MESSAGES: Even if you miss your notifications or turn off your phone, WhatsApp will save your recent messages until the next time you use the app.

• AND MUCH MORE: Share your location, exchange contacts, set custom wallpapers and notification sounds, broadcast messages to multiple contacts at once, and more!

*Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details.

    I really love this app but I need to flag sommes features that are not available anymore: - Capability to see who have read a message even when you are not the sender. - Pre-Listen an audio before sending. - More than 4 peoples on an voice group - Recording option on an audio communication. - Option to download any media on our phone

    apk Hi. It's more of a question. Can this app have a feature (option) where I can go dark for a couple of minutes, that is, being online to reply messages without it notifying all of my contacts that I am presently online at that moment of use. In this mode, only the person you are messaging sees you as being "online". With excitement, I think it is possible.

  3. Tony Banks-avatar

    app Love it, messages always stay together doesnt break into pieces. I wish we had a "Since your last visit" or a "What did you miss?" feature. That way if important messages have been sent during my absence, now they will not be missed with a pop-up feature.

  4. josh12and-avatar

    rooms I guess well the app is okay (sometimes) I try to look at statuses but it won't load up it takes about 6 minutes to load up my Internet connection it absolutely fine but the connection to WhatsApp from my phone is terrible some days the app is great I can look at statuses without any problem but then other days it doesn't work please fix this but I say it's okay the app

  5. Jayren Tay-avatar

    pc Lacts many features most messaging app have. Auto back up takes ages. Wouldn't even be using this if the majority of the people isn't using it. Clearing files actually deletes the message and the file, tho that's the nature of WhatsApp "online" storage that sucks. Also could be the ugliest dark mode made in an app with its Highly researched color scheme.

  6. Sue Harris-avatar

    ipad This past week whatsapp is using an extra step to open : it says "from facebook". I AM NOT A MEMBER OF FACEBOOK AND DON'T intend signing up for facebook. Why did this happen I don't need this extra step. Please fix it or tell me how to fix it. Otherwise it's a great app that I enjoy using. Thank you.

    whatsapp business Some minor issues with video calls stalling and voices being distorted, but not frequently. Android is better than IOS but only slightly. Sometimes it would be nice that others and not just Group Admin could add participants. Also ability to assign my own pictures to contacts without an image for own personal viewing.

Or can anyone tell me what can I do to receive the notifications? I have tried everything possible, app settings, watsapp setting, reset notification setting, customise notification setting.... Now am out of any option. If anyone can help me to resolve this it ll be grt

  9. Mike Omara-avatar

    warten auf download Great till last week. Perfect. Now gone. This review misleading now. WhatsApp was great for over 5 months then in February it stopped working. Now it doesn't work and your tests do nothing to explain what is wrong. Even though I follow your instructions every time your answer is that I keep guessing the numbers incorrectly. That is wrong. I never guess the number, I use the result you give me and when in doesn't work you tell me I am guessing wrong even though I alwats get the same numbers

    hat zugriff auf google drive Nice app I use it a lot. But the main sad thing, is that there is no folders... You can't group active talks of contacts and groups in some sort of folders, to organize... Something like (study folder), that will hold all talks and groups about study etc.. Some custom group you can create... Like albums in photo galeries. If you have a lot of talk, it starts to be a hell to manage it... Why they don't adding folders?...

    The magnificent connection app. I liked this app because it's the real way to communicate with your family and friends. I really liked when I have pen friendship with my family and friends as long as you can make a group of people to communicate with each other and you can share one as well. What's up is provided with body languages and enjoyable emojis for anything or any situation you want to facilitate describing about what you want to say.

  12. Rida H-avatar

    This app isn't user friendly interface I mean if I don't want to be online 24*7 & be available at all times but there is no sign out button on the app ,if I have to disconnect from the app my options are delete the app or uninstallation,and both of which aren't easy & then there is whole process of reinstalling & data backup.

  13. Jas Rathore-avatar

    I absolutely enjoy using whatsApp because its a really great app to use in order to communicate with friends and family...The only problem i do have is i cannot hear the other person clearly or even see the other person clearly on a whatsapp video call even tho i Have data ..other than that i do not have any other complaints..

  14. Luck Shaeey-avatar

    I am using android 4.2.2 . The issue is that when I open info tab on messages sent by me in groups. After the rollout of dark theme, the colour of pannels are white. They should be grey but they appear white due which the text is not clear. Please look into this. This is a bug only in the dark theme. The issue- background in the info section remains white instead of changing to black or grey.

    WhatsApp is an app I use daily as I have a lot of people I need to contact without consuming my data. Recently it's updates have been amazing especially with the dark mode, finally. My only suggestion is the compression and rescaling of media. When we're on WiFi, can we have an option to toggle that off to increase the quality of our media, such as photos and videos? Like on chats, not statuses. High quality stuff is a big plus, just like your high quality app. Big thanks to the WhatsApp team.

  16. Aditi Rubal-avatar

    I think there is some problem with the app since last 2 days. I am unable to download any photo which is being sent in the chat or group. And the statuses are also not downloading. I can upload as usual but there is some problem with the downloading part. I updated my app yesterday but the problem still persists. Please fix it.

    Since the latest update, there have been so many crashes, especially when it comes to dealing with any type of media. I have not even been able to change my display picture since. The screen goes blank and freezes and I have to force stop the app to continue using it. Totally rubbish.

  18. Masoud Shams-avatar

    First: you can't edit a text that you send in a chat. Second: you can forward a post just for 5 person Third: when you forward a video or anything else, it upload again, as in some countries the volume of monthly consumption of internet is limited, it's a big problem. Forth: When you delete a chat before other side seen it, A message send for the otjer side that shows you delete it. Fifth: after some time you can't delete a posted for the other side even if they haven't seen it.

  19. Edward Jubilag-avatar

    The app is really good except from the fact that you can't migrate your backup/chat history from IOS to Android and vice versa. It will be perfect if you will have a feature that will enable user to easily transfer their data between different devices. Wechat has this feature I don't understand why you don't. Just disappointing.

  20. priti khaire-avatar

    It's very good app.. But one suggestion is that.. There should b mute option available for whole whatapp app.. If data connection is on then messages do come on whatspp so my other works is hampering due to this.. I cn not prefer the setting option but this is again repeatative activity and other notifications will also OFF... Currently we can mute to persons but I want to mute to WhatsApp for some time Please suggest. Thanks

  21. Kwan Wai Teng-avatar

    Trying to change my phone is a hassle. Receiving new messages while back up is in progress means the new messages won't be in the back up, and having to reinstall whatsapp to restore from back up is stupid. In fact I am only here writing this because I had to reinstall it. Why isn't there an option to do so in the menu? Also I've been getting connection issues since forever ago and no fix is in sight.

  22. Holly Yanes-avatar

    I use to have this app and I would never have to be signed into the app to receive video, voice and messages but now I do. I checked all my settings and they are good. So it is a problem with this app. My husband is in another country and this is how we communicate. But I can't receive anything unless I'm signed into the app. I use to give this app 5 stars but now I only give it 1 star

  23. George White-avatar

    When I type a word my previous phone used to show a suggested pic. As an example Cat will show a 😺 Now with the Samsung A71 I cannot find a setting that does that. Otherwise I would give 5 stars. Another problem. Videos sent to me do not appear in my Gallery. I have set everything to Yes or On including the main setting on Samsung Apps for WhatsApp. Photos are there but not videos. Why? Is Samsung inferior to Huawei?

    Developers of this app refuse to update its features. Its lacking so much the data on chats isn't on cloud like other apps such as telegram. You have to back up massages everyday. I switch between devices so much so if I don't back up daily I lose all my information, videos and chats. Backing up massages takes too much storage. All the media has to be on your device. Telegram keeps all the media on itself and you can access it easily without taking your storage. You cant delete or even edit mas

  25. Rajesh Khatei-avatar

    In whatsapp video calling is worst I think previously it was better after Facebook takeover they have ignored whatsapp video call and focused more on messanger video call. In whatsapp if someone is offline still it's ringing but same is not happening in messanger. What's up video call timing the screen got hanged sometimes u can't do anything. Can't able to minimize the call & disconnect also. Need to improve lot in video call quality as well.

  26. A Google user-avatar

    The quality of video call and voice call must be improved . In video call I can't see the person's face clearly and in voice call I can't hear the person's voice clearly. Otherwise the app is nice.......... The new feature of dark mode is very relief giving to my eye. As the least darkness of the phone can't even help me.....

    LATEST REVIEW 2020-03-06 Getting much better with dark mode etc but forwarding is still limited to 5..😥 OLDER REVIEW Used to be great. Now terrible. Almost crash every time. The sharing and copying option is no longer as friendly as before. Before it is just the arrow ➡ and the copy 🔲 buttons, now too many steps. Forwarding used to be limited to 20, now just 5! 😢

  28. Gino Palleschi-avatar

    In the last week both my phone note 9 and my wife's phone S7, can not download videos with WhatsApp while on wifi, any wifi. If we turn off wifi and use data videos download fine. Any suggestions, and yes we did all the traditional fixes, turn off and on again, uninstall and reinstall. We never had this problem before. All other functions of these phone work fine, it only seams to affect WhatsApp.

  29. Mitali Basak-avatar

    First, a suggestion: whatsapp status should have a tag option or a notification which goes out to friends when a status is uploaded. Most of the times we miss out on our friends statuses because we dont get to know. 2ndly, the problem I am facing is with chat Report and Block option. Please remove this or if you at all want to keep this feature then do not remove or delete the full chat conversation of the people who are being blocked. The whole chat gets deleted & thats really disturbing.

  30. sHiSi-avatar

    actually it would be nice to add more fonts in the status. and also add a poll box for the status just like instagram lol. i really liked this app but when you add a text in the status it always go under the "add a caption" area and because that area is huge its hard to remove it and put it somewhere else.. so that really bothers me. as you can see ive been talking and talking about the statuses so i rlly hope you upgrade it to be like instagram thanks :>

    One of the best messaging tool there is but compressing image to reduce data consumption should be an optional. I prefer high quality image or video even if I have to wait to upload or download. On my S10 I noticed it uses my wide angle cam which is nice if I want everything in the frame but I don't need that often and the photo has poor image quality when zooming or narrowing the view. Please fix this soon. 2. Issue: Screenshot with longer shot than usual size becomes blur.

  32. Steven Abraham-avatar

    Happy with the app for the most part but wanted to suggest creating option for expiration dates on groups. People add you to so many groups that are only useful temporarily, having predetermined expiration date could eliminate need for stagnant groups and not leave people feeling alienated if folks depart.

  33. Viraj Keer-avatar

    Horrible time trying to restore my backup from Google drive. Just didn't give me any option. Thought moving from a samsung note 9 to Samsung S20 ultra should be a breeze. Worse, after multiple attempts, it doesn't even let you get any sms until 7 hours and no calls for 2 hours. So yes, you stay away from any important communication until then without any solution.

    Please makes changes on high priority. This App has serious bugs. If you are on a call on Whatsapp through Bluetooth and at the same time if you get a call on Facebook messenger at the same time, your Bluetooth gets switch to normal earpiece after the messenger call completes ringing.Once it goes back to earpiece it wouldn't switch back to Bluetooth device. Kindly fix this. it's super annoying. It stops me from making WhatsApp call. Messenger handle this issue very well but not Whatsapp

    WhatsApp is useful.. WA is made me easy to call someone and get information with long distance... but this aplication is never give me a notifications.. and sometimes when i open WA, it can't open and it always say WA is not responding... from yesterday i can't open WA until now.. i don't know what happen... if you fix this problem i will give you 5 stars

  37. Noyonika Banik-avatar

    This is absolutely fantastic and the world loves it but there's one request i would like to make, "PLEASE ADD A FEATURE OF SEARCHING IN CHATS BY DATE". I find this really important. It will be easier to track down old messages by date rather than by only searching the key word.

  38. C Me-avatar

    Forced updates are annoying, I have no need for group voice mail or call, dark mood but unless I download the updates I can't use it.😠 Let the users decide if they want that function! It's not as good Viber, firstly, they have better Emoji. They actually let you delete sent messages for everyone whenever you want to, unlike whatsapp within a specify time frame. Also, it has a edit function that let's you edit sent messages, so you can correct a spelling mistake, rather than delete the text msg.

  39. Pramod P-avatar

    Very bad ... poor sound quality ... can't send voice messages even to local numbers ... need to waste time typing ... calls from abroad get broken frequently ... no clarity in calls ... videos never get played in app .. then, when you want to delete a long message which we typed, there is no quick delete option ... whatsapp was good at first, but now it absolutely SUCKS!!!

  40. Sandro Sousa-avatar

    Good message app which once in a while implement super irritating features, specially in respect to intrusive notifications. The group notification settings keeps turning back on no matter what combination of settings is used on Android. This happens particularly when the phone is set to vibrate so each new group message makes it vibrate, overwriting the settings in the android system and whatsapp. Te dark mode is so badly designed that it has to be turn off to be able to read the messages.

  41. najwa ariffin-avatar

    Overall is okay. but I'm having a problem because I cant see my friends status even though we both save each other number. I've already check on the settings but the same thing happen. I don't even know why but sometimes I can see it. also it happens frequently for the pass few weeks. hope you guys can fix it

  42. Elya Rahimi-avatar

    The most annoying feature of this app is that users can't download the same file in whatsApp if they delete it from their cash or gallery and there won't be any history in chats to redownload it!!!! Our phone memory is not limitles we have to delete some files but we should be able to download it months later. Thanks for your consideration

    Helpful, useful application for daily communication. But the latest update seems to have 2 problems: 1. The fonts don't become bigger after being set so. 2. Some messages are sent to wrong contacts (not to the intended contacts). Please check and fix them immediately. If correct, problem no. 2 is quite disturbing.

    I like it. I only got one issue. Please make it an option so if anyone call me the apps wont suddenly cover the whole space. Make it a small pop up notif insteed just like chat notifications. I hate it when im doing something and WA Calls window suddenly block whatever im doing before from view. Or better yet let me auto block call on "Do Not Disturb" mode. Just like normal app?

    No longer has the pop up notification available on this version, missed call dont come through at the same time, aaaagh! You literally have to open the app each time messages are received, instead before you could swipe down the top of the screen, view, and reply. Hate this WhatsApp version!!!

    Dark theme update: The latest Dark theme launch can be called as "the not so dark, dark theme" weird combination of colours makes it look very bad. Ideally apart from the message fonts it would be better to have the background of the chat screen and chats dark. As of now it just looks like a black, grey + multi coloured contact name with whom you are chatting. More worse when it is a group chat. Hope someone thinks through and does a good job.

    I don't know y but I can't get my verification code at all I'm using whatsaap on another device and it works perfectly fine then y not on my current device. I've tried each and every method still no code. For such a great app that I've been using for years with no such fault I'm disappointed on this one thing, maybe it's due to the update but kindly reasure me that my problem will solve cause I've got plenty assignments to do and I can't do them on my other device. Plz help me with this issue.

  48. Toaster Mon-avatar

    Solid, room for improvements Please give us the option to either disable calls in general or add another confimation before starting a voice or video call, I can not count how many times I've been called by someone or have called someone by accident, when I just want to open the options for a chat.

  49. Aamir Seemab-avatar

    It is awesome app. I've been using it from years. I want a little addition in it's updates. When a person watch my status it shows me the name of that person for 24 hours. But it doesn't show me how many time a person watched my status. Like if someone watches my status again, it should show the that this person watched your status again.

    It's very amazing app. You can instant message, call, post status, send videos, images and even voice notes. All the options are very easy and helpful. But I think it should have the option of change storage to make it more better.

  51. Karthi Keyan-avatar

    I gave 5 stars at start of the update but after 2 days it started stopping abruplty. Its lagging a lot. Cant view status. In short whatsapp is not at all working.I have never faced such problem in whatsapp since i have started using it. It has to be a problem with the update. I m using nokia 6.1plus. i have sent a feedback too. Developer please send a solution. Its irritating actually to use it now with all the lagging.

  52. Harsh Panwar-avatar

    The answer is yes I didn't know about the answer is yes I am a remainder of the two circles and end products and service packages to update the answer. How does that sound right the question that how CT and end of a frustum to get to see the attachment file and you will find the least amount. And what are your plans change the question that you should be able to understand.

  53. Vale Vary-avatar

    It won't save my settings after I changed it, especially the sound. Even though I've mute the sound on both the system and the app but its not working. Andddddd the problems added, when I'm trying to listen to an audio it just shuts down my phone suddenly. Why does this happen????

  54. Denero-avatar

    Would give 5 stars but when I got up to use my phone today and all of a sudden it's like I'm signing up a new acct and it's asking me for some pin...I move forward and it's saying something about two step authentication which I don't remember setting up.I really need this to work because this is how I communicate with my family and for work,how can I fix this??

  55. zul obby-avatar

    So far, everything seems so good but it really disturbing me when i sent wrong message to someone or groups and accidentally click delete for me and i can't recovery the message back and change it to delete for everyone. hopefully, you can put something like that to avoiding some mistake. please consider about this matter for everyone sake.

  56. Elen ZK-avatar

    Been using it for about 6-7 years (not sure) and I'm not disappointed, even tho it misses a few features such as "liking" messages in group chat (voting) as polls if there's an arrangement going on or automatically deleting messages from both sides after a "timer" set by the users on 1 month/week/day/minute/ w/e goes off

  57. Jan Edward-avatar

    So, I think WhatsApp is an amazing app. It lets you connect with everyone for free, using your phone number. You can call, text, video call for free. It has end to end encryption so no need to worry about someone reading your chat. I've been using it for so long and I can still only recommend it. And that's why I gave it 5 stars

  58. Joseph Kituyi-avatar

    This app is cool and I love it, but what if the next update has something-like a feature to indicate whether the people in your contact list are off or online. U know something like a symbol (⭐/◾/▫/🔵) so I don't have to send messages or chart with someone who is not or has been offline like for a week.

  59. Pogiso Mabuse-avatar

    Since the lastest update it no longer does video playback when you trying to select which part of the video you wanna upload, secondly if you delete a message before the other party sees it, it still leave them a message that a shows a message has been deleted, 3rdly after sometime you can't delete a message for the other party even if they haven't seen it

  60. Karan Varma-avatar

    Great app. Have been using since 3 years. Can you put a feature where one can "like" chat bubbles in group chats so that conversation would be easier just like in Instagram. It will be great if it's there. Also please add new themes like gold, bronze, classic or any other kind of attractive templates.

  61. Edward Osako-avatar

    Dark mode still needs some fixes. It does not affect the list of "read", "delivered", "remaining" when you press to find information about a message sent to a group. This makes it hard to read names and numbers because they displayed in grey against a white background. Please fix.

    This app is total rubbish. 90% of the time there is a connection failure message. I have tried reinstalling, resetting, etc. Nothing works. Very unreliable and quite dangerous if you needed a ride in an emergency. I would really appreciate a feedback from Careem as to how this can be fixed.

  63. John Maxwell-avatar

    Kudos to the application developers for listening to users reviews. I'll like to suggest another update to be made. WhatsApp needs a databate like Facebook. Constant initialliazation and midnight backup of WhatsApp messages is taking space. This app should be develop to have a synchronized online database like facebook. Also WhatsApp should block all the old versions of this app. Reasons been that some people are still using GB WhatsApp Or anothe version of WhatsApp.

    I have never had a problem with whatsapp b4 untill the other day after the most recent Sony Xperia update, now all my sound/voice recordings are very quite, crackling, glitchy playback or the entire sound clip recording just cuts out after a few seconds leaving nothing but a blank audio recording? I have uninstalled /re installed whatsapp, cleared all files / cache but am still having this problem, can the developers PLEASE offer me some assistance with this matter at all? Thank you kindly.

  66. Hamka Ab-avatar

    I started using Android since November 2019 after iOS, and really dissapointed with WhatsApp even after several updates since. It freezes everytime i want to attach pic from photo gallery when in chat window. Phone: Huawei Nova 5T, on EMUI10. Option to delete accidently sent message should have the 'delete for everyone' first (in the option), 'delete for me' below. To avoid accidentally deleted for me and afterwards you realized u couldn't do anything to delete for everyone.

    The app is fine and all but the dark mode is disgusting. The main color should be a darker gray or plainly pitch black as to keep the same contrast as Light mode. Also the green parts of the UI (buttons, own chat, etc.) Should be blueish not turquoise or whatever color it is rn also the names should be more vibrantly colored

  69. Oswald Pereira-avatar

    It is very useful for us. We can get free calls. We can message for our freinds and others. Thear are many funny faces. The app is good for message receipts and sharing massages too. This app is good for group massaging. We can also put wallpaper in the back of the messages. We can also make vedio calls to our friends, relatives and family members etc... We can put induvisual messages and group massages. This is very very useful massaging app to all of us. Best app of world

    It's just a good app for voice calls and video chats with your friends. The good point is you can see everyone's number so no one dares to play a prank on you, but It steel reduces the videos and images quality so we have to share them directly or by links. Dear programmers, please make an editing icon so we can clear our little mistakes and won't be have to clear the message completely or explain our intent in so many other messages. Thanks a lot

    Facebook is just destroying Whatsapp Few days back I tried to make an account on WhatsApp but no message was sent to my phone number even after trying again and again. Morever you have to face crashes and bugs many times while you are using the app. In old times no such bugs were seen, but as now this app is owned by Facebook, so Facebook is just destroying the app:(

  72. Vihir Patel-avatar

    The built in video trimmer NEEDS FIXING. After selecting a 30 second slice from a long video for status, the app often glitches and selects a different slice from the same video (i.e., it moves that 30s window upstream or downstream when you tap send) so that the final video contains completely different content than what you chose. I have had to resort to trimming in other apps before posting on WhatsApp.

    It is a great messaging app. The only downside to the latest update is the dark theme. Which in my opinion is not good at all, for OLED devices, the background ahould be pitch black and the green message bubbles is not very appealing to the eyes. Hopefully they come up with a better look

    From All social media apps out there, I find WhatsUp to be the friendliest with the easiest interface to send pictures, communicate orally or verbally, to access a phone call anywhere in the world where the signal allows. Able to easily send links, photos to a group or individually. After 3 years using it, I find it to be my go to app anything long distance or short! ;)

  76. Aalap Amin-avatar

    The whatsapp itself is good, but just receive an update for the dark mode. To be honest, it's horrible. It's not even dark mode. It look like dark green unlike ios. It look ugly. IOS whatsapp has completely pure black dark mode. Second, with whatsapp, I cannot restore chats on ios or android interchangeability. If moving from android to ios and vice versa, you have to start over which is sucks. Do something about this!

    The app is really frustrating me recently. Unlike when I 2as using my other phones if I view someone's status and ask the person to send it to me, I can still see it in my file manager maybe picture or video. But recently I cant see them when it's sent to me. I hardly share pictures or video as well. I have uninstalled the app severally and back yet it doesn't go away. 😡😡😡😡😡😡. Is it associated maybe with the type of device one uses because others who use same device hardly have same issue.

    Can only use text and picture messaging as all other features require recording permissions on a permanent basis. Fix this issue and maybe it can be uprated. Permissions to utilise camera/microphone and or recording should be on an 'as an end user as needed' facility. Not even sure these should have any kind of always allow opt in.

    Something is very wrong with this update from Whatsapp - my font size in both Whatsapp and phone settings, are both set to small (because, I'm not blind). Yet, the font in Whatsapp is absolutely ginormous on my screen. What the heck is going on here? I don't want everyone reading my screen. This is not the definition of small. I've lived without Whatsapp for over 5yrs - I'll easily do it again.

    Whatsapp in itself is actually pretty good.A plain and simple user interface and straight to the point messaging service. I'm really satisfied with it. Ps. The new dark mode is garbage. The green doesn't go well with the dark background. It would help a lot if you guys gave us the option to change the green to some other colour.

    I love the app and have been a user for over three years. The last update has me on nerves. I don't get a notification sound unless I have WhatsApp opened up. I find the 2nd greatest benefit of chat size is no longer adjustable. Then I can't share unless the data is really small. What's happening???

  84. Kerri Kendrick-avatar

    Would love it if they added a method to react to a message with a thumbs up or something and added a polling method. I use this a lot for school and this is the best platform for group chats but it'd be nice if I could create a poll so we could see things like what times/days that would be preferable for conference calls, meetings, etc. and make seeing preferences easier.

  85. boy buster2-avatar

    Great I love using Whatsapp to talk to my extended family. There is one suggestion I would make to the developers, and that is to add a time zone note based on location. Or a delay message option for long distance texting or calls. That way people can message each other without having to worry about the other person being conscious due to differing timezones or sleep schedules.

  86. Andrés Gómez-avatar

    App is generally ok. Got dark mode on the last update and it's okay-ish, it'd be better if it had true black instead of gray backgrounds. Also if you have a wallpaper set the dark mode will look ugly with it. It'd be better if you could set a wallpaper for light mode and other for dark mode, for those of us who like switching between both depending on the time of the day

  87. Princess Sarah-avatar

    Good app however I've been experiencing a problem . Whenever I take a picture / video via WhatsApp & receive a picture / video on whatsapp the file would be saved once on my phone as normal but once I restart my phone it would download it again which causes duplicate files. How do I stop this ?

    For me the communication channel is quite convenient, only part where the photo sharing or default picture does not shar as original picture, which that caused unpleasant for the users. Hope Whatsapp can improvise the quality of picture (sharp and not blur). The rest should be fine.

  89. K J-avatar

    Simple and fit for purpose messaging app! The anticipated dark mode on Android is unfortunately unimpressive due to poor choice in color scheme with a greenish hue. Hoping for an update with a more blackish/dark theme, please. Hope the team at WhatsApp listens to suggestions from users, the new dark mode has underdelivered user expectations.

    It's a good app but it has many problems. The number of members in a group is limited and can't be more than approximately 300, but for instance telegram groups has more than 1 million members. That is why I changed my rate to this app. Another problem is that we can not edit a sent message.

    The app is awesome but the Dark mode isn't fully functional. There are devices with android 9 that supports Dark Mode but it won't switch automatically to dark mode. For that you always have to take many steps to activate it. Learn something from Instagram. The app switches to dark mode automatically whenever I activate the system wide Dark mode!

    The dark mode is a catstrophe on Android. If you had to make a dark mode, why forget basic aesthetics? A black/dark background, preferably like Reddit does it, and shades of green that complement each other, not ones that look like a disaster next to each other. Was it that hard? What weed were you guys smoking? Goddamn. The design team should be flat out fired if it takes six months to make something that looks like a child that has never seen a colour palette would make.

    The current whatsapp update is difficult to use. In the older version wherever I stop the screen while scrolling and switch back to the particular chat It will be in the same place. But now it is difficult to scroll down all the way from last messages. It is very difficult for business person like me. Please change that.
