Why should I use WhatsApp?
There are many things that you can do with WhatsApp and we’re going to tell you about them below:
No hidden Cost
You will need to pay 0.99 dollars per year and nothing else. The connection will be made using the internet connection via 3G/4G or Wi-Fi, so, as long as you have enough mobile data (MB), you don’t have to worry about anything
Sending Multimedia files and creating Group Chats
As we told you above, you can send images, videos and voice notes to all your WhatsApp friends. At the same time, you will be able to create Group Chats that allows you to add up to 99 friends (100 including you).
No international fees
Since the connection is made using the internet, you will not pay any extra fees by texting or calling a WhatsApp user that’s from another country.
Say goodbye to usernames and passwords
WhatsApp doesn’t use username and passwords, but instead it requires your mobile phone number to get your account verified. Once you get verified on your mobile device, you won’t need to insert any usernames and password while opening the application. By using the push notifications feature, you will have WhatsApp always on and connected, getting notified as soon as you get a message.
When you register on WhatsApp, the application will look at your contacts and in case it detects a phone number that’s registered on WhatsApp it will automatically add it on your WhatsAp friends list
In case you turn off your mobile phone, don’t worry because when you will open it, you will receive the messages that you’ve received while you’ve been disconnected from the internet.
Using WhatsApp you can also share your location, exchange contacts, set custom notification sounds and wallpaper, email chat history and more.
