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.


• 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!

Reviews From google play store

As an Android user I have one big grievance: if I want to see the photos and videos received, they get saved to the phone. And once I delete them off my phone, I can't ever see the photos again even if I click on the photo within the char. The app settings on iPhones has an option to not download the images to the phone. The Android option is to not automatically download to the phone, which just means you have to click on the photo to see it but once you click it it saves down. Please fix!!!

The app was working perfectly then I don't know what has happened to the notifications. I don't receive any message notification either its a group message or of a chat. I have check all the setting but all in vain. Even the option of vibration is not working. I have checked the notifications, the settings are fine. The app is updated as well. I don't know what the problem is. Please help!

WhatsApp sticks when the finger print lock is on. When a call is finished, you are unable to end the call also. I even had an issue where when persons are calling on WhatsApp I can hear the phone ringing but not caller ID is showing up. I would have to miss the call and then call back. I had to uninstall and reinstall my WhatsApp due to these issues.

Disappointing, only works on one device. If you install it on a second device the app desctivates first device. Only works if you have a phone number. I have a spare phone without service that I use while working in the garage. Whatsapp will not work unless you have data and cellular service with a phone number

this apps is very good. I'm very like it. 1. but heard a lot of friends said that is very easy to hack to somebody whatsapp to read their messages. 2. The date cannot show always missing. Sometimes I want to print screen the conversation with clients cannot show the date. The date will hide automatically. Hopefully whatsapp team can improve of this issues. thanks

Feature request: a setting to block all incoming voice messages. I hate them and ignore them. It takes twice as long to communicate as it would a call. People send me 2 minute long messages and they are horrible to listen to. Ideally anyone opening my chat would have the voice button greyed out when this setting activated.

I don't know what's happening right now but WhatsApp isn't syncing. The Wi-Fi is okay and the app is updated yet it keeps telling me 'checking for new messages' and 'You may have new messages' yet I can't see those messages. It's been thirty minutes now and I'd really like some help.

include custom ringtone option and night mode on the next update or later coming updates. Now a days lot of applications contain night mode. My friends told that new version of whatsapp consuming more battery, please ignore this problem too. I know that Whatsapp developers trying to create new features, please include above options to the upcoming updates.all other features are very helpful and performance also great

I am using what's app since long. I have never faced any kind of issue with what's app but since last one month uptill now on whatsapp when I call my friends or if they call me after ending the call in status bar it show incoming call or out going call and I have ended the call. I always keep whatsapp updated. Kindly solve this issue.

It's already good actually, but could the balloon of our own chats (as the sender) be colored black too when it comes to dark mode? It's really hard to read our own chat if the color is light green and the letters are white. Or at least make the letter color is black so our own chats become readable by ourselves. Please do consider this. Thank you

I would really like to give a 5 star to this app for it's awesome communication application. However, I am having a hard time reading my text from its widget. It's as if the text were translucent together with the widget. Even in dark mode. Help fix it. Thank you!!

I just love this new version. Now no one can easily read your massages and chats and i features are more relevant and we can easily Operate it. It is very good app to interact with our family, friends and love ones too. Overall performance is awesome.

I really wish sometimes if it could had a profile photo private or public or visible only to specific people option because there are some friends who steals profile photo by taking screenshot and later i don't know maybe misuses them and the worst part is you cannot block them because they are your friends also blocking still shows you profile photo so blocking should also make your photo invisible to the blocked person.

Having trouble with notifications sounding and becoming visable. I cannot hear for texts and many times cannot hear when I get a call. Please fix. I cannot hear my texting notificaitons. I have new phone. So it is the App's malfunction. My phones settings are all enable for WA, but cannot hear when i recieve texts.

Ratings:- Its the best app for messenging.Almost the whole world uses thos app for messenging. Improvement:- You should improve the video calling feature as its a great problem while placing video call. More features that sholuld be added:- 1.there should be many styles available of writing while we update our status. 2.Different stickers should be there like it is on Instagram or facebook. 3.Whatsapp wallpaper library should be in build. Thank you....😄

Whatsapp is amazing. Great actually. Instant communication worldwide. But i wanna make a suggestion. There should be different customized status privacy setting. For example; custom1- college friends, custom2- school friends, custom3- family.... So now we dont have to select or deselect contacts each time you want to update your status for those specific viewers alone.☺️

Whatsapp is so good and so easy but there was only a fingerprint option is available to unlock whatsapp app. It was trouble in too much of times. Please convey other additional security option like pattern+fingerprint, password+fingerprint, pin+fingerprint . It was very useful for more places.

Hai, my WhatsApp has problems almost 1 month. My contact can't see my profile picture and my about. Some of my contacts also lost due this problem. My contact also can't view some of my WhatsApp status and same goes to me. I hope you can fix this problem as soon as possible, because only thru WhatsApp I can contact people easily because majority nowadays people use WhatsApp as their main communication supply

Photos are not getting sent sometimes after my phone got updated to the latest Android version. I am using OnePlus 7 pro. This is very irritating. Please do something about it soon. It has been like this for more than a month now.

What is happening ? I unistalled whats app in the month of septmber and I reinstalled it today. App has restored all my backup messages and media from Google Drive. Ok Fine. But Now I am unable to send messages in all my group. Even I was admin for some groups. "You cant send messages to this group because you're no longer a participant" Need a quick reply from whatsapp support. One more thing, no one has removed me from any of the group.

Application is working Good . Everything is fine.. minor bugs but not noticeable. Please one more suggestions for you guys please increase the video status duration (Length) 59* seconds if possible then ... this improvement will be good and user's friendly. Sometimes few seconds not enough for matter in status so please..... And please release Dark mode as well as possible .

Such a worst new update.After Downloading start don't show how many video has download and how many remaining. Just show a circle which continuesly round. This consume a lot of extra Internet MBs. Please fix these bugs as soon as possible. So I can give you good rating. Thanks

I'm very disappointed with the latest update - it has made things substantially slower. 1. Videos on statuses take ages to play. 2. Every time I open the app, it's as if it was offline - all messages sent while the app wasn't open flock in, the statuses flock in, both at a annoyingly slow rate - while this app enjoys priority permissions on my phone. 3. When I type a message to send, sometimes it disappears from the textbox w/o sending. Deleting my statuses takes ages to complete. Why?

Battery drain since update version 2.19.308 causes severe battery drain. Analysis states whatsapp used 50% battery in a 4 hour window without app running Edit. Fixed problem temporarily by sideloading a new WhatsApp version direct from their website but then app updated and ruining battery again. Lion battery design charge cycle 800 times. Charging 3 times a day cause an app is draining it leads to reduced battery capacity. This app is like smoking for your phone. It WILL die young!

Fingerprint unlock is great and secure but the feature lacks one crucial option that needs to be fixed ASAP. I.E. there should be an alternative way to unlock whatsapp. Suppose you are having your meal and your hands are oily and the fingerprint sensor does not recognize your fingerprint you would wish if there was an alternative at that point right? There can be an alternative pin or the phones pattern lock to unlock whatsapp after 3 or 5 unsuccessful tries with fingerpint.

This is exactly like rust! The gaming exp is excellent and I realize, not many ppl know how to play this. But my phone get so hot, I have to stop playing or my hand would've burned. Why is there no mic, why so many Philippines and Indo? I can't find a single English learned person in US server.

Best application it is so helpfull for me. But your above system is great, when we forword one photo after then we jave to send second photo then second time we have to come down then we have to scroll up and select second photo after then we can send. It is something dificult for us. Please make your past system we can come to direct on that photo which we was forworded.

One security experiment : I locked Whatsapp with App Lock (Huawei p30 pro, emui 9.1), and the app now shouldn't open the pop up notification or any thing from the app UNLESS I unlock it by fingerprint verif. WELLL, with screen off and wapp locked, I get a msg and I CAN reply from pop up noti. With screen on, when i get a msg, I need to tap fingerprint to open the pop up. It's a bug. Solve it. That happens with SCREEN OFF POP Up turned on. U can turn it off, but it's a bug to be aware off, DEV.

Everything was gr8 and fantastic until this new problem popped up in this app.. I can't get any videos saved in my phone... Actually it is in my phone. But i can't find them anywhere else than WhatsApp, I don't see them in file manager even.. So kindly get me out of this problem, Because I am not the only one facing this problem... There are many others..

WhatsApp is the only app in my drawer that still hasn't rolled out dark mode, regardless of the amount of users requesting it. Telegram did it years ago, before dark mode was even introduced to Android. I can't switch to another messaging app because everyone I know only uses WA, so it's just incredibly annoying.

Group chats should have a password/fingerprint authentication, despite app lock. A little bit more clarity in voice calls will be like extra toppings. Like cam scanner while sending a document, a message asking "the user in what quality the user wants to send the documents". Similar feature can be adopted while sending a high quality picture in WhatsApp, instead of reducing the quality of the picture by the app itself. Overall, excellent product.

The app is ok however recently my display picture keeps disappearing. I then resort to putting it up again , then it just disappears again after a few hours. I only notice as I'm putting up a status that my picture is missing. Please fix this!!!

I complained earlier but no positive response. I am unable to see whatsapp status of any contact. I emailed but the response i got was that they might have deleted or not saved or blocked etc etc etc. How can all the contacts of a person do same thing at same time. Thats not possible. I even tried clearing data and then making account again but still same issue for almost 36 hours almost. I asked my friends and they say their whatapp is fine. Also my profile pic is not shown to them. Its blank.

I updated my WhatsApp but each time I call on WhatsApp and end it, it keeps showing on going call and also whenever I'm on WhatsApp call n I click out of WhatsApp to do other things, the person on the other end can hear me again. Please fix this as I use an android phone (Samsung to be precise). WhatsApp has been very difficult to use lately. Fix this issues please

Whatsapp really help me while having a chat with my friends and family.But when I send photos using this apps,the photos become blurry.This apps also doesn't support video that are 720p.When I send the video to my status or to my friends,the green blurry scene came out and there's only the song playing.But when I send videos that are 360p,the whatsapp can support it.This apps also keep backing up even I don't want to back it up.Please fix this.

Normally great, but it's draining my battery since the last two updates (one in Oct and one in Nov) - phone keeps giving me warnings that it's WhatsApp doing it. WhatsApp team said to change some settings but it hasn't helped. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Today even while app not in use it has used 19% of my battery. My phone is warning me about this and it is also overheating. I am begging to charge my phone several times a day. Other OnePlus users seem to be struggling with this too.

Awesome app. But recently I'm facing an issue with my WhatsApp. I'm not being able to send photos to my contacts. Whenever I hit the attach button, then after opening any photos folder, either I'm not being able to select any photo to send, or, if the photo gets selected and I hit the send button, my phone's screen goes black and my cellphone hangs and ultimately I have to hit the home button of my phone to get out of this glitch. So, please developer mates get me out of this issue.

I really like what's app... I can't do without it 😏 I love how friendly it is to use, however I wish they could now make new emojies 🤣 I love emojies and I wish there were moving ones.. Were like they blow a kiss. 😯 But furthermore no complaints, I'd recommend it 100%

I love the app but it doesn't notify me when I have messeges I haven't opened, or show them on my notification tab. Even when I put on the "pop up message" feature, the unread messages don't pop up on my phone. I always have to be on WhatsApp to see my messages. The I haven't found the new feature that comes with the new update for the "fingerprint unlock" option. It's not available on my WhatsApp

Got some issues. It's the second time the whatsapp chat are shown in black theme.even the WhatsApp logo shown at the beginning is also shown in black.after refreshing the background, the messages which showed as in black colour changed to normal, but the beginning interference is still boack

I never write any reviews/comment or even complain about any apps whatsoever because I feel it's time wasting.... But this is one of the best apps you, family and friends want to have to stay connected, it is the best for me personally 😉 Had the app for more than 10 years now and I've never had any problems with it. Deserves a 10 star rating.. But just to add, I think we should have control over how long a video you want to post is and how long it should last for and not be a 24 hour limit..

The response has become terribly slow after the last update. I feel like kicking myself for updating th to the latest version. It takes ages for attachments to appear. Even while forwarding messages it takes a long time for connected to show up. Before the last update these things would happen in a jiffy. Please fix these issues, it has made using WhatsApp almost unbearable

dear watsapp team, your this version is also nice but in this version a small issue is this so many time finger print sensor is not working, so i can't open my watsapp please add pasword security with this, although when the finger print is not working so we can open is it. thnx

When driving and I have my car on Bluetooth mode I notice that when a whatsapp call comes through, the display says that it's my phone calling instead of the callers name or number. When I click the button on the steering to answer, then the call disconnects instead of picking up. Can you guys please fix this. I believe that being able to answer calls safely whilst driving is a very important safety feature.

Enable business account search. With this feature users can search business accounts enabled with whastapp . This will ease searching of hospitals, police station, small businesses, news channels etc. Also integration of FB pages of these businesses whastapp account. Allowing business accounts to enable this feature of list/search as optional, so that businesses can choose to get searched or not.

Hello whatsapp family I have discovered a bug in the whatsapp u know that option to turn off/on read receipts so u can make all messages aren't getting double blue ☑️ That let u know when the other person have seen it This option dont work on voice records it marks it as seen as soon as i start hearing it same in videos idk why So I'm not getting the privacy that u kinda offered / promise plz fix it once u do let me know to change my review to 5 star

I use whatsapp app since 2012... Before this new update my call, video call smooth and no lag, now even though i have full signal 4G still the same, i connected to the wifi still the same and while i wasn't using my whatsapp my battery drain very fast and overheated my phone, every day my phone warn me about whatsapp battery consuming a lot please fix.. Both my phone android and ios the same problem....

I have a problem with the new update. The Chat doesn't appear when I'm not open the app. But when I open the app many chat come. This happened when I updated to the new version a few days ago Please fix this issue.

i really like the app except for the fact that even if you turn off your read receipts and your last seen the app still shows that you are online. Tons of apps let you go incognito, whatsapp should let you as well! that's why they get 3 stars

Please FIX. This app, was working just fine but recently, there seems to be a problem with calling. After you hang up on a call, it still shows as still being on call. Please fix. Thank you.

Messages are not being sent while replying from the notification panel. Have to open the app or reopen & then it's being sent. If any message notification pop ups on screen direct reply from there without opening the full app isn't working. Plz fix it soon.

No doubt whatsapp is an advanced app for instant message and other services, however, the constant news on data breach, and secret capture of media is very risky. There is a fear of everthing and lot many doubts hover around. I absolutely love using this app.

New update has been good, fingerprint unlock works wonder. Also the muted stories does not show up unless you touch the drop down arrow, this is a real good thing. Things you need to work on: Remove media file size limit, it is a real painful task to use gmail for purposes that can be done via whatsapp. Also the limit of forwarded messages, I am forced to create different broadcast groups because of this limit.

The app is fun but the camera automatically zooms into your face during video calls and will not allow you to zoom out. It's very annoying and the major issue that I have with the app. I've read that others have the same issue. The calls are clear and adding ppl is simple. Once the zoom issue is fixed it will be an easy 5 stars!

The app is great, fast and quite easy to use, won't deny that. The only problem we have with it is the photo/picture quality, it significantly reduces quality. A picture send multiple times here and there using this app doesn't look as good as when it was first send. Will be of good use if photo quality is improved.

Whatsapp was good until about 2 to 3 months ago. I thought my S7 was unable to hold charge anymore so I upgraded to S10e. Same issue. 100 to 0 battery in about 4 hours on a call. I sleep with my long distance partner on the phone so we wake up without each other when this happened. I was sick of my cheek getting hot as well. Switched to Line and an 8 hour call is only about 30% battery. If not for everyone having Whatsapp, I wouldnt have this app.

What the ... I was so excited when the update was saying that they have put fingerprint into this time update of WhatsApp. And after the update I enabled it. And after that it is working, but only for a short time. After sometimes it won't work unless it randomly appear on the screen. This is not I want. I want to work this fingerprint just as normal as any other fingerprint lock app. PLEASE FIX THIS

What's app is definitely 5 star app👍, with alll it's amazing features, but rated it 4 instead of 5, due to below common limitations. 1. Group name max limit should definitely be increased. 2. If we type a message and didn't send it and it's in draft mode, then that chat should get latest timestamp and appear on top, like any other chats with latest message. 3. Wish max number limit of users in group was increased. 4. Wish max size limit of files are increased

I know that WhatsApp is enormously popular. And I know that it greatly replaces SMS. But honestly in terms of features it is like a desert. All of its rivals offer better set if features. Moreover, the call quality is not good I still prefer Skype

It's nice but one of the issues is that if someone deletes a message that you didn't read you are not able to see what was in the message which is kind of annoying and there's got to be a better way. Adding a dark mode is a feature everybody has been waiting for and you still didnt provide so these are some points of improvement, other than that you are pretty well.

I want to give one feedback regarding the video calling feature of the app. Beogre making the video calls it should ask first, whether you want to make a video call to the person. It happens very often that we try to open one's dp and we press the video calling option besides it, which instantly places the video call. Thus this feature is a necessity and should be introduced.

Besides all the issues that have been mentioned before, now when I end a call, my whatsapp shows that the call is still ongoing, with the timer & all in the notification panel. That leads me to think that even after hanging up, my camera & my microphone are still being used by the app...+ it's a pain to open status updates and download files on mobile data. This issue is only with whatsapp

instead of solving some issues developer of this app for android is introducing some new options not necessarily the ones one could not live without. for example, the number of notifications next to the app's icon is not correct and when one wants to solve the problem, the official instructions are: uninstall the app and install again, the reason for this problen is suuposed to be the phone's software... so why one doesn't experience the same problem with similar apps like viber, line wire etc

Good app, but when trying call it gets echo. Please resolve it. Can you give me help to resolve this matter? It's good app, this is just slight problem, so please rectify this matter as soon as possible. This is humble request

I've set a notification for almost each and every individual but, after updating the latest version It's not going accordingly to my settings and for all the contacts I get the same 'default ' notification sound.. Pls look into the matter at your earliest..

I'm having a problem where I cannot touch the screen during a video call, this proves to be a difficulty since I cannot mute, not hang the call. I cannot even drag my camera screen which shows my face to a different location (preferably close the camera) which proves to be a problem. May I please have some help on this particular matter?

No matter what I change in settings, it will still give a sound when receiving a message. I dont want to hear a sound when receiving a message. Just silent notification in top of my screen as I always had until today after clearing cash in settings. I set like 10 times NONE for sound for receiving messages. Everytime it turns back to Luminol. Now I had to switch off notifications, but as a result I wont see Notification or blinking green light. Please fix this.

WhatsApp is using too much of my battery and I often get notifications saying WhatsApp is draining your battery on my Oneplus 3T. Also there are weird glitches after this update. My messages don't appear for a while after I send them to a chat. It suddenly comes after 10 seconds. I even resent messages because of that. Along with that, WhatsApp suddenly becomes dark and half normal theme. If there is an official dark theme, why isn't it a setting, but only a bug?

An excellent messaging app hampered by a real dud of an update WhatsApp is great. But there have been reports of huge battery drain for over 10 days now. I had 3 minutes of active usage the other day and yet WhatsApp had drained 25% of my battery. I've restricted background activity for WhatsApp but it's still happening. Fix it. You've got Facebook money. It's not good enough.

I dont like the that when we mistakely touched on voice call or video call it automaticly goes on call..Previously was better" it pops up notification" if we want make a call or not. It happens afte I upgraded..thumbs down for this 👎. Please make back like before..Evrytime when I slide down for notification when on whatsapp it happens.Please make it like before.

It is user friendly. what's up calls to foreign countries is very clear. The local what's up calls are not clear. The ringtone of the caller (the one making the call) is also not good on local calls.

The usability is great. I couldn't live without it. But, it storage data into my mobile phone internal memory, and I can't transfer it to the SD card, even when this is configured as internal memory. So the whatsapp size increases, and makes my devices malfunction

Your new update(finger print lock) was very useful for our privacy. But there is a drawback in it. You could provide an option to unlock by PIN and fingerprints(more than one fingerprint). What would happen if my finger was injured then how can I access my account. Please team fix this problem. I hope that you will fix this very soon

Samsung Galaxy10 user...This latest update is full of bugs. I'm experiencing constant call drops, slow downloads and uploads, and it displays an already ended call as ongoing in the notification pane. I'm slowly gravitating towards TELEGRAM(simple seamless way of communication). Fix it please or risk losing people like me and host of others. Thanks

Since Last couple days, the WhatsApp video call does not end even other person ends the call. Earlier this week I see the icon on top shows that the video call was on for more than two hours after I finish talking. Is there something wrong with the app or is this something with Pegasus?

Whatsapp is now officially a battery killer. I. Have a oneplus which used to last over 24 hours on a charge, now with the latest version of WhatsApp I have three (3) hours usage from full charge! Fantastic WhatsApp! Excellent way to loose your client base! I wish I could give no stars, but unfortunately I have tag at least one to post a message. And also it does not end the call that you make. Seems that WhatsApp wants to monitor what you are doing without you knowing it. Tine to delete.

WhatsApp has a lot going for it: a good-looking, stable UI; e2e encryption for all messages; and a large user base. It's a good messaging app, but good messaging apps are a dime-a-dozen these days, and I'm just not that impressed with WhatsApp's feature set. New features come infrequently and, when they do arrive, feel half-baked. The WhatsApp dev team should look at Telegram for inspiration.

I love that you're adding fingerprint feature to android. But i got some issues when using this feature. Sometimes when my fingers wet, i can't use my fingerprint sensor, and it says that whatsapp can't detect my fingerprint and i can't open my chats, I'm afraid that i got locked when i needed to chat someone immediately. Can u add alternate to unlock the app like faceunlock, pin, or password? I'll give 5 stars if you reply to my suggestion.

It's an amazing app. You can message for free and use your data for it offline but the most annoying thing about it is that it doesn't give me any notifications. When I open the app, it then loads up my messages. It would be gratefully appreciated if you would be able to fix that. That would then make this a 5 star review.

"NOBODY" was a good options under group. Instead of removing nobody you could have added four options. And under privacy for status - "share only with" and "my contacts except" does the same work. It makes no sense to have two options which in turn have the same functionality. Please add "NOBODY" and adding "my contact except" is a good choice but don't take out "NObody" from group option.

Devs really need to fix the battery drain issue ASAP. I mean seriously. On my OnePlus 7 (Android 10, OOS 10.0.1), WhatsApp is on top of battery usage list with more than 33% battery used, and nearly "always active" in background. My battery drains quite fast despite my device is only about a week old. Had to give this app 1 star rating for now.

A) Since the last update the battery on my Samsung A520 drains faster. B) What on earth made the developers think it was a good idea to flash the WhatsApp logo for a second or two when the app starts. Everybody using WhatsApp knows which app they are using. It's just plain annoying. And it is probably the reason for unnecessary battery drain. Please don't 'fix' what isn't broken and just leave well enough alone. If you do feel the urge to do stuff, optimise loading time, battery usage etc.

The biometric lock feature is really good.. but i sensed a bug there in following cases: - whenever you unlock your screen, and Whatsapp was previously being used.. it shows a glimpse of your WhatsApp application before asking for fingerprint scan. - when screen is locked and a flash message is received, it reveals everything in your application until the flash message is removed. (Happened when i unlocked my screen and flash message was popped up.) Note: biometric scan mode is set on immediate.

Bloody impossible to move from one phone to the next. I've used a Hotmail account I've had since the early nineties, and they still come back and say, "We don't believe this is you," with no options given for proving it is. And it stopped working on my old phone because I upgraded SD card. Just useless.

Samsung Galaxy S10. LOVE WHATSAPP across many phones, many years. It's used by most people in many countries. It's light on its feet, very versatile with text, voice text, audio clips that you can scrub thru (unlike FB messenger that starts over every time, stunningly stupid), great video, live calling with both voice and video. Never glitches. Great quality in every usage. No short time limit on audios or video. NO INTEGRATION WITH INVASIVE APPS AND MARKETING!

I am using whatsapp since last 5 years , they has been a lot of changes , but the very recent change that is the fingerprint option is not that much secure , it is having some bugs , somtimes it opens the whatsapp , without asking for the fingerprint ..

Can you please give the option to archive a chat permanently until you manually remove it, so archived chats that are still sending messages don't pop up at all. Or maybe a hide chats feature so you can be apart of a group but never see the messages unless u personally change that. Many people are required to be apart of work, campus, or family groups, this feature would be very helpful.

I loved to using whatsapp....... It is good chat and send attachments without any problematic steps... Easy to use and handy... But... There was a problem that is not solved yet... In growing world everyone has shifted or has option to choose themes... Specially DARK MODE that I loved much... But still after so many updates it never appear... So please ... I am waiting for your positive reply... Thank You..

When choosing photos to be shared, the thumbnail orientations are all messed up. However, when a problematic thumbnail is selected and the preview is shown, the orientation of the preview photo is correct. I tried this on both OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7T Pro and the same problem exist. Tried to search but can't find any info on this issue, my old OnePlus 5 didn't have this issue before. Might be due to Android 10. Please fix. Note: Same issue seen in Instagram, but not Facebook, Snapchat etc.

my profile picture is seen to my contacts but nearly in a month, when i change my profile picture,my contacts couldn't see it. i tried every way to fix it but they didn't work. the only solution i found is if i delete someone and add him again, he can see my image. i don't understand why but after some uploads it became like that. help me please what should i do?

*URGENT MESSAGE* Most important! when I need to delete a wrongly sent message or one that is incorrect, due to major translation or auto correct errors. It's absolutely imperative I can delete the message. *Not just for me BUT also delete for the recipient of the message* 2) other than this glaring omission, it's an excellent app. Will happily give back 5 stars when this unfortunate & embarrassing omission is attended to. *This is a major concern for all of your users.* *Please expidite.*

all thing is ok ( connection speed , voice call quality , no hang up , no stopped working ) . ‌‌‌‌‌ but 1 thing is very crazy : we are deleting one message but whatsapp shows this message has been deleted . ‌‌‌‌ we don't need this crazy item . when we delete 1 message , this mean we need hide those message from our contact ... ‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌ ‌‌‌‌ OK ???!!!

WhatsApp is really good but when I want to send some kind of photos or videos then it keeps loading and it never sends then I thought it was the problem of Internet but no, so I just request you to please kindly look and solve the problem 😔 and also I am not able to change the profile pic 😕 and I am not able to do anything with it yet so I don't know what to do about it

Deleting sent messages for everyone should not leave a message saying that a massage was deleted, it eliminates its purpose. And it should have a 24 hours time limit, not 1 hour only. Mute notifications should have more options than 1 hour, 8 hours and 1 year. Black theme should be available already. Self terminating messages should be available and have more options than only 3.

Since the time I have updated the app for the latest update for fingerprint lock I am facing issues with the app. I am not receiving any notification. Normaly it shows no message but when I open app I see that I have received messages and calls. I don't know why such issue is arising. I checked all the settings and they are same as earlier. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the app but still problem persists. I even contacted whatsapp through mail and raised a query but no help from their end.

I love using this app but one problem that i encounter often is when it kept asking me to adjust time and date and everytime i adjust time and date, it does not allow me back into my chats so i have to update this app regularly just so i can use this app. I have used up so much phone data just updating this app and it is discouraging me to use this app further. Please advice.

The app is overall good. I just have one slight problem w it. I somehow don't get any notifications when someone messages me. I just open the app and I have multiple messages already. I tried everything possible, like installing and uninstalling and also restarting my phone. But nothing works! Pls find a solution!!

After it's latest updation yesterday ( 17th November ) not able to send chat messages and status updates which always show the time symbol and the contents are not delivered. It always shows sending only. The network connectivity via WiFi and mobile is fair. The problem persists till now from yesterday. WhatsApp need to correct this on urgent basis. Please provide an apt solution asap.

Great app but I hate how you are unable to use it without updating. Like you don't have much storage and now you suddenly need to sacrifice at least 3 other apps for 300 mb or sacrifice any contacts though What'sApp. Seriously, why do I need to update a texting app? E.g:I'm fine with not seeing what'sapp stickers that people send (that's basically the one difference I noticed when I was forced to update previously). Why can't you choose if you want to update or not?

Since the latest update, WhatsApp's battery usage skyrocketed in my Xiaomi phone. My battery went from lasting aprox 20-24h on normal usage, to 12-15 hours at best. WhatsApp is always the number 1 drainer. I've tried restricting the background use to no avail. This really is a letdown, since now I'm forced to have a charger with me at all times. Please fix this and I'll update my review.
