WhatsApp Messenger application logo

WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for iPhone 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, 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, 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, email chat history, broadcast messages to multiple contacts at once, and more!

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

After IOS 11  Priscilla Silva  2 star

I love WhatsApp, but after it updated, I’ve had a slew of issues. My biggest problem right now is that I’m not getting notified of some of my messages. I’ve triple checked that all my notification settings are enabled and still there are moments where I simply stop getting notified of the new messages. Next issue, my keyboard disappears!!!! I have to force quit WhatsApp and then get back into the app for it to appear! Next, when using the app, it gets stuck on landscape mode and freeze, and again I have to force quit and reopen the app. Please fix these problems! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼


Great app, but can get better  Chadery  4 star

This app is terrific, fundamentally. When it gets to the nuances, however, there is still room for improvement. WhatsApp should work or features like a “like” option on messages in group chats or 1 on 1 chats. There’s also potential for other features, like reaction gifs, but only if they don’t mess with the best parts about this app- its security and reliability.

Background refresh broken in update  eurystomus  3 star

It seems as if the background refresh is broken for the recent app versions on iOS 11. I often have several conversations that have new entries but until I foreground the app, they don't update and I don't receive notifications. This seems to be exacerbated when switching from Wi-Fi to network. Additionally, I have the desktop version open, and frequently it seems to lose connectivity through the phone. My connection strength hasn't changed during the process, but multiple times during the day I have to reconnect through my phone. Overall though, apart from these recent issues, it's a good app.

PR Relief

Maps.me  PR Relief  4 star

A little quirky sometimes, but gets you where you are going in a pinch when no cellular signal can be obtained (offline such as in Puerto Rico for disaster relief). All in all a great App. Suggested Improvements: Audio and graphics could indicate the road/street/exit# being referenced for course changes/turns.
