More than just a simple message exchange; you can send unlimited photos, videos and audio messages between each other

Never think twice about the cost of a message to your friend in Australia, or about the steep price of a phone call to your sister in London, with WhatsApp it is unlimited and it is free

Who is WhatsApp Available to?

WhatsApp is available for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Nokia and Windows phone and you can message between these different devices

WhatApp is linked with your Cell phone number, so once you download the app all you have to do is find your friends already using the app or invite them to join

You are able to see when the person you are chatting with was online last, and when your messages have been delivered, received or read

Group Chats

With WhatsApp you can create a group chat with three members or twenty; there is no limit. You can name the chat, add a photo and create custom notifications
