WhatsApp is essentially an instant messaging app, whereby you can talk to people whose number you have. A nice blend between SMS and instant messaging. Key benefits of this app include free messaging between countries, an ability to group chat, sending pictures, audio notes and videos for free, know when your message has been read and even share your location with friends.
The green symbol is quickly becoming an essential on smartphones across the planet. 70% of the 600 million user base uses the app everyday who are sending 19 billion messages a day! Impressive figures indeed!
It’s an app I use everyday, infact I can’t remember the last day I didn’t use WhatsApp. It has replaced my need for text messaging so much so I have reduced the amount of SMS I get in my mobile bill. I look forward to Facebook really throwing their weight behind it, as I feel it could be an even more powerful messaging tool.
If you don’t already, I suggest you start using WhatsApp!
