dieguito_27 - Complaining
Ok so I generally love the app. But with the new update came something peculiar about the voice message. Now you can keep listening to the voice even if you turned off the phone or switched to another app, but the catch is that if you’re listening to music and you start to listen to a voice the music doesn’t start automatically after you’re done listening to the voice. Now you have to enter the music app and press play so you can keep listening to the song. I don’t really like that. Another thing I don’t like is that if you take out the read receipts you can’t see if someone saw your status. And that’s really frustrating because you took out the read receipts so no one in the CHATS could see if you saw their text. Not for the status. I would really appreciate it if you took out those two things. Please and thank you!
maizarquqa - Problems
I report many problem in WhatsApp and all I got the feed back is same reply which is cut and paste from your technical department. I have serious issues and took snapshots and the till now never been solved.
Need to solve the issue all my data pictures and media are gone while they are all stored at my IPhone but they don’t upload and please don’t tell me to check with Apple. I restore many apps and all the data perfectly recorded only WhatsApp has such problem and they don’t know how to fix this issue and they transfer it to Apple.
Another issue the app no more connect to the internet which means have to keep deleting it and restore it and it works for few hours and after that same issue not working. I have cleaned the cash and follow up all the troubleshooting and no hope. I have 2 what’s app one for business and another one personal. The business no problems with it. The personal has the problems so if I have a problem with net work or any other issues both should not work. Is there anyone there can solve this or only sorry and again copy and paste the troubleshooting? This is serious issue as I have important data for more than 4 years and thanks to WhatsApp now can’t restore it properly only some and some are not.
torresale3 - Stickers changed everything
So my friends and I have debated back and forth whether if to use whatsapp or imessage as our primary way of communicating for as long as I can remember. In all honesty we frequently switched back and forth. However, ever since whatsapp released stickers, there is no debate. My whole entire city/everyone I know constantly trades stickers like pokemon cards & it makes our conversations 10 times funnier. We also create our own stickers using other apps. Our biggest request is to please allow us to organize our stickers (maybe by sorting them into folders/tabs) because we have so many and they get lost in the bunch. Another great idea would be to have access to create new stickers directly through whatsapp instead of a third party application. Please take these things into consideration. I never write reviews but we’ve all genuinely said it for months that we wish we could organize our stickers.
kylehotchkiss - Camera takes fuzzy photos every time
WhatsApp in general is fine. But every photo I take in the app is fuzzy; and more zoomed in than my normal photos app. It’s like they are putting camera in video mode and taking a screenshot. I guess this is part of their cross platform library but still, I wish it would let the camera app use more native and high quality functionality.
Additionally, it’s wayyy too easy to send things to the wrong person. You can’t remove people from “recently contacted” or “frequently contacted” prompts around iOS for sharing. I’m terrified I will send my girlfriends brother something immodest because his name shows above hers even though our chat volumes are way different.
WhatsApp is a globally loved tool but has some pretty strange UX issues given its financial backer and experienced staff. I will continue to use it as most of the world doesn’t have iMessage; but if they did; I don’t think I’d miss the WhatsApp app that much.
amr bashq - A comprehensive review of Whatsapp security.
First of all yes I am on addersal. WhatsApp has a number of advanced security features. It has end-to-end encryption, just like Apple’s iMessage and Signal. All messages flowing through the platform are secured so that only the sender and the recipient can view them. WhatsApp couldn’t read your message even if it wanted to. The app doesn’t store your personal information, and only people you approve as contacts can message you. As with an increasing number of internet services like Google and Facebook, WhatsApp uses two-factor authentication, which has you type in a second passcode sent to your phone via text message to access your account. Group messages can conflict with some privacy settings, however, in that if you have blocked someone, they can still appear in a group message that you can see

Nin★DogeAppReviews - Incredible
I really love this app. It's incredible how you can talk with anyone around the world without paying actual money. There’s nothing wrong happening with my version, the camera works well and shoots good photos. There are some things that would make this app the best messaging app. The first one is that when you mute a group chat there should be an option that allows you to mute it forever, same goes with the real-time location. When you create a group, others shouldn’t have the option to kick you from the group, and there should be an option to make someone not be an admin without having to kick the person and adding them again. Also, I really want the GIFs to have their own spot so you don’t need to go to Photos and Videos and then click GIFs. Also, make a DRAWING option. Well, that’s all. Thanks for this amazing app.
Doug tge CEO - Plenty of room for improvement
As an avid user of social internet media , I found WhatsApp is lacking in many convenient features offered in other apps. I use Facebook when I want to express some thoughts, events etc. But FB Messenger is not efficient in quick text, so I still resort to 20 years old practice in text msg like in Nokia phones. WhatsApp is subservient to the features offered by WeChat. Understood that WeChat is by Tencent in China, nevertheless the features are amazing. The Moment posting functions are like Facebook post. The conversation wether individual or in chat groups are more user friendly than WhatsApp. It allows recalling a wrong message sent in mistake. Attaching files and emojis are awesome. My only complain is that once viewed in one device the message cannot be reviewed in an other, which FB allows all history conversation once logged in.
I lived in America over 47 years. I highly recommend friends to use WeChat for daily contacts over other apps.
accidentalgrammernazi - Wonderful app! please add one simple feature
I use this app to communicate with my friends and family daily. I’ve been using it for about 4 years now, and I’ve accumulated a LOT of stickers. I mean probably 500+ stickers, all of different things for different situations. It can be a real pain to have to scroll through a lot of them, especially since I star/favorite most of mine and don’t have packs. If there could be a way to manually organize the starred stickers and put them in their own packs/sections or anything that would be amazing! Maybe something similar to Pinterest? Where you create a board/pack and add the a sticker of choice to that pack. Also when you delete a sticker it automatically scrolls all the way back up to the top of your stickers, I’d prefer if it didn’t.
That’s it! Thanks for a wonderful service.
Adriana04 - Too easy to call people by accident
The app is really great and connects me with my contacts all over the world. It makes it easy to stay in touch. You can text and even call for free. Doesn’t get any better than that!
The only thing I would change is how easy it is to call people by accident. It happens all the time. I wish they would hide that button behind the profile page. This is mostly a texting app, do we really need that button on the first page?Even on an iPhone you have to first click the i button from the message page to call someone. It’s smart.
Another issue is that the app distorts the quality of pics and videos after they are sent. I often receive videos with delayed sound and fuzzy images. I have to ask my contacts to send me those through other apps so I can actually get the proper sound.
Please fix and it will be the most perfect app!
@njiban - WhatsApp- A Great End to End Encryption Platform
I am particularly fascinated with WhatsApp because of its versatility and agility as far as social media platforms are concerned. It takes customer privacy and security into great context and go out of their way to protect that customer information from 3rd parties and hackers. I have never heard of a hack or security breach into WhatsApp security systems. Overall the App has been great and has eased the way the world has connected via talking and sharing digital and graphical data.
The only downside to WhatsApp is that when you lose your device or are out of storage and uninstall the app, you typically lose all your previous chats and data. I would have been great if WhatsApp had an option for optional storage space for sale, for folk to backup their communication and social media data.
Mish000 - Best App Ever!
There is not enough text space to write down everything I love about this app, nor do I have the time to write it all down!!
Suffice it to say, I wish I could get everyone in my contact list to use this. For work, we have a record of all of our conversations, which in my line of business, this has been a really good thing for us. Also, you can see when the person read the message. Being able to back up conversations to the Cloud has also been useful. One of the things I’m most impressed by the Developors of this app is that they are constantly updating the app with new capabilities. Like I said, there are several things I could continue to write about how much I love this app. Suffice it to say, it’s one of the best Apps in my phone and I’m a hard critic when I comes App reviews.
sinkary22 - Still not syncing contacts since iOS update months ago
When IOS updated several months ago, one of the features that was affected on WhatsApp was the option to sync contacts. I called Apple then and they informed me that each app provider must update their security profiles to be compatible with the new IOS. There have been 2 updates of IOS since then and still, WhatsApp hasn’t got with the program.
Utility of WhatsApp has gone down as I have to research each contact to try to even place a call to them. Numbers that are in my phone book don’t register so it’s difficult to know which contact is which without that extra step in research. Furthermore, I can’t save new numbers directly from WhatsApp to my phone. This is quite frustrating. I have never left a review on this app before and decided that 5-6 months of this is enough. Can you please update your app to resolve this issue with iPhone!
Okey DoKey Locksmith - Houston Texas
As the owner of a locksmith company and the manager of operation at Okey Dokey Locksmith, I want to say that WhatsApp is one of the most useful app we use on a daily basic.
This platform of communication allows use to create a secondary network in a secondary level when we put customers on first priority.
For example: if I dial/talk to a technician I use WhatsApp and customer can still call me on the cellphone.
To further explain: if I call tech on the phone it takes 10-15 seconds for the telecom system to connect the call and within this time frame of clicking the dial button to the moment the line is connected, a customer might get to the answering machine.
Highly recommend to all of you business owners to use WhatsApp as a secondary network for your employees if they are interfacing customers over the phone.
Thediamondmaster11mlg - I have a huge problem with this app

Kim Namjoon_Kim Hyemi - Not opening a chat
So me and my friend were talking and I put too much emojis I didn’t even get to send I kept copying and pasting u until it makes a long paragraph because I wanted to try something but it just lagged and then I left WhatsApp and went back onto it and clicked on the friend I was texting but it didn’t open. Every time I click onto our chat, it doesn’t open it just lags on her name then I need to get off WhatsApp and on again I also turned off my phone and opened it again and still the same problem. I could open other peoples chat but not me and hers. It does let me go onto her contact info when I long click on her name but when I tried to get back onto our chat it wouldn’t work I even tried to do the chat search and it wouldn’t work. What would only work is the media,links and docs and the starred messages so please try to help me out with getting back onto our chat.❤️
Arman_s23 - Love Everything except...
WhatsApp is an amazing chatting app that conveniently connects you to a broad chat base of your family & loved ones, friends and acquaintances alike at a quick setup without having to generate unique ways to connect with each other. It has a plethora of other cool features like ability to make voice and video calls etc. and now even make payments to each other for a dinner you shared but did not pay for... BUT all this power without the possibility to lock the app or have a password access is a waste of opportunity to complete the offering by WhatsApp. I really feel THEY ARE RATHER LATE. PASSWORD PROTECT OPTION at starting the app window IS MISSING AND should have been there like yesterday ... it’s a simple feature addition but gives many people the safety they want to protect their communication and today communication is everything!
dordor.a - Needs 1 change
I love this app, but 1 thing I wish they would change is their notification system/inability to get calls when I’m on another cal. Sometimes I’ll be on a phone call from my actual phone, and then when I get off the phone an hour later, and if someone from WhatsApp is trying to call me, it’ll say “Missed Video call from____”. To me, it’s annoying how if I’m automatically on a phone call, the WhatsApp video call won’t go through period. WhatsApp should let the video call go through, so even while I’m on my phone during another phone call, and I see someone calling me, I can answer the other. Sometimes it’s important and I need to answer because it’s family from another country, but I never can because WhatsApp automatically tells them I’m on another call, but doesn’t notify me. Fix it. Please. It works with audio calls, why not do this for video calls too?
brightlikeme345 - WhatsApp Changed for the Better!!
I have used WhatsApp for about a year now, and I love it!!!!WhatsApp is an overall Great and Safe social Media!!! It allows me to be able to communicate with friends and family around the world! WhatsApp is a great way to message and talk to your friends and and family virtually! It has satisfied me 100%! I extremely suggest it. One feature that I’m in love with is, the status feature, it allows you to post videos,gifs,pictures about you and what your doing today, and plus to keep it safe, only your contacts or the people you chose can view it!! WhatsApp is amazing! My friends and I enjoy it very much!! It keeps me in touch with everyone! 😊! I 100% recommend anyone to use WhatsApp, it’s completely safe and free!! 🤩🤩
Sincerely, Kira Robinson
Neomail83 - Privacy concern
WhatsApp is one of the best messengers, the fastest and most efficient, but I have a problem.
I can not stop showing a call made through the application in the search history (spotligth) of the iphone. it doesn't matter from where you delete the call, not even deleting the contact at all from the iPhone, It always appears the last time you called that contact in the spotlight search if you call it with WhatsApp.
This phenomenon does not happen with the native application of iPhone calls, deleting them from the history deletes them from everywhere and there is no trace of it in the spotlight search. This little detail does not happen with WhatsApp. I have had personal problems because of it, I hope you know what Iam talking about and solve this. Regards.
DIGBYS XPAND - Whatsapp is always improving and getting better
Whatsapp is a great tools for friends, family and businesses.
The continuous improvement of the apps is great too as well.
So many new features added and so on.
Nevertheless there are other great things that are being taken a way from the apps that need to be reconsidered for great and greater experiences.
Not sure if it’s a bug that would be fixed or deliberately done.
Few things I noticed are;
1) The inability to fast forward or rewind voice messages.
This is very handy function as sometimes we just need to quickly get a point from a voice message we have previously listens to and so on.
2) When viewing status that has audio we have the ability to increase the audio by using our phone volume keys and able to set it to the desire volume. But now it’s volume is static once you push the button at the start of the status it added audio that can neither been increased nor decreased.
Please try to look into this as it’s embarrassing having your phone on highest volume in public places and be unable to adjust it.
Am using an iPhone 8 Plus incase these issues are only on certain devices.
Jreome J. - Just a minor issue that’s really problematic
Sometimes my messages can’t go through on time and it’s takes forever for them to receive it. When I text my friends who own Samsung devices, the message won’t go through even though they’re still online. It usually takes about 3 to 2 minutes for the other person to read my message(s). What really bugs me is that once it shows *last seen today at (time)* the message that I’ve sent is delivered, and it’s would show the double check mark. So the person who I sent a message to would only get it if they exit out the app. Plus, no matter how much messages you send to that person, they will never receive it until they exit out of WhatsApp.
Please fix this issue🙏🏼. It makes it really hard to communicate, even when it’s an emergency.
Disney_lob - Best app ever but...
I use it 24/7, it is amazing, works pretty well. I only have one request, please let us be able to disable the camera sound from settings. Just like you can disable the sound it makes when it takes a picture in apps like Snapchat. The only way of getting rid of the noice made by the camera is by turning your ringer off. I use the camera a lot so after a while the sound becomes annoying, leaving me no other choice but to turn my ringer off. Problem is I need the ringer on and it has already happened to me that I miss several important calls or can’t locate my phone when calling because I forget to turn it back on.
It would be lifesaving if you could do that please, I don’t think it’s something complicated. It’s a rather simple request. Other from that, great app
Tech search - Stickers, media, links, doc & roll adjustments
I’ve been using the WhatsApp since a long time ago, I still believe that the are a lots of things need more improvements, when you chat you can’t go back to the point you need, you should scroll and sometimes it crash & all your efforts will fade away, this should have an option that makes go back to the event you want or by choosing a photo from your media or a scroll option on your chat page.
After saving you personal stickers from other apps on you favorites you cannot save them in categories that you want or create, this also needs some modifications so you can save them in your own categories that make you act faster & easier.
Hope we can see these options when the updates come
Regards to the team & their efforts.
Misteriousguy - Bad chat backup system
I’ve been using WhatsApp for a number of years now, lately I’ve been having a lot of issues with chat backups, I have them set to backup weekly, but I find myself having to go back in and press the backup now button because it tells me that a connection error occurred and it couldn’t do the backup, now I’ve lost everything, all my chats, pictures, everything all because the stupid backup wouldn’t load fully, it got stuck at around 36mb out of 900, now I know it’s a lot of data but I haven’t had a problem before with large amounts of data backups, I gave it about two or three days to sort itself out, well it didn’t, I had to erase and redownload the app and when I signed back it, it said that I didn’t have any backups, and now I’ve lost everything I had, I am very upset and will consider a different app if this isn’t fixed
Ao1311:)$ - Very very good
I never ever write reviews because who has time for them. But I've started to use WhatsApp a few months ago to talk to family and friends in a different country and it's amazing. In fact almost all of my friends (high school) and cousins and older family members use WhatsApp to talk to one another. It's free and there is no dumb "well the app is free but you have to pay for extra stuff" it's COMPLETELY FREE. I'm able to see when the text delivered, when the other person saw it and if it's a voice message then when they listened to it. You can also replay voice messages. You can also do stories on it like snapchat which is kinda cool. Over all it's really great, it doesn't have glitches and it isn't slow. I 100% would recommend
TanyaB. MN - Traveling Abroad
Our 17 yr old daughter is in Costa Rica right now, traveling w/a group of other high schoolers for a 10 day trip & ‘Whats App’ has kept us in contact(w/Wi Fi of course)so we don’t have to pay outrageous phone fees. The first night we had a little problem trying to talk on a call; kept cutting us off + there was a delay. So then we tried a video call but we only got to ‘see’ her for a few min before the video went black(we could still talk, but apparently the Wi Fi was weak).
•WE JUST got off of a phone call w/her and for the most part there was no problems, but towards the end our call(about 12min), it was breaking up.
I would refer the APP to anyone who’s planning on traveling(especially w/kids or teens) so your phone bill doesn’t get jacked up!
lilybird1992 - Starting to hate this
Hey whatsapp it is very important that you guys check out what is going on with this app because recently I’ve been having trouble getting notifications on WhatsApp even calls I can’t even get them when they call me I am getting very tired and I want this issue resolved I just want to let you guys know that when my phone turns off or when the light goes off on the screen and if someone tries to text me or call me does my phone does not ring and I do not receive a notification..... so when I turn on my phone with the home button I really can see the notifications pop up one by one each phone call that I missed pops up as well so what is going on can you please fix this issue please thank you.
sherper87 - Update
I have been using WhatsApp for few years now ! Love it ! Yet I have a major issue with this STATUS thing there are some statuses that I’m not interested at all in seeing ( irrelevant , boring etc ) but the friends posting them I actually like them and there is not a tool to be able to remove the status and not being able to see it at all ! Now you can mute them but does not block their statuses at all you keep seeing the freaking status even being mute ! Can you developers make an update where the statuses can be block for certain people without having to block completely the person from WhatsApp please? That would be awesome ! Since muting the status does nothing you still be able to see the status !
CR777777777777 - Notification Preview Update
Hello, I’ve been using WhatsApp for years and it’s great as we all know it, but just today I don’t like the way a message notification appears since I turned off my ‘show preview’. It will usually show the contact name who sent me a message without knowing what he or she sent to me about, but right now I’m having an issue where the notification only shows ‘message’ and it doesn’t tell who sent me a message and of course I don’t know what’s in the message since I turned off the preview from my settings, but I really don’t like what’s going on, if this is an update, please I’m really hoping WhatsApp could do something to make it like what was it before, thank you, I would really appreciate if anything is done.
NomDePlumed - Horrible design flaw
WhatsApp has a ridiculous design flaw that needs to be changed immediately. The "Autodownload photos/videos" feature on the iPhone has a severely annoying feature in group chats. While I want things downloaded, I DO NOT WANT THEM ADDED TO MY PHOTO LIBRARY. The reason why is that I was in a large public group, and a spammer joined an started posting porn. This was auto-downloaded, added to my photo library, and then auto-transferred to another photo library. As a result, a spammer ended up adding a bunch of porn to my photo library, which was then uploaded to a second backup, and almost ended up with it uploaded to social media. I had to spend hours clearing multiple libraries of this crap, and I still cannot be 100% sure I got everything.
To be clear, I want to be able to see images that the group posts, and I want to be able to download and add them AT WILL. But the automatic addition to my photo library is an insanely stupid feature I never would want.
Nessa B77 - Looooooooooooove it!!!!
I absolutely love WhatsApp. I’ve been using it for a little bit over 2 years but have known about it for a little longer than that. I first started using it when me and my brother travelled over sees for the first time and wanted to keep in contact with our family back home everyday so they would know we were ok. I immediately fell in love. I love the fact that you can text, call(both voice calls and video chats) and send pictures for free (regardless of where you are in the world), which saves you a lot of money. One of the things I like the most is that you can send a lot of pictures at a time, whereas you have a limit with regular text messages. I will definitely be using WhatsApp for a LONG time😊
BLACKCAR PICTURES - Great reliable, secure app! Only ONE gripe...
I absolutely love just about everything about your WhatsApp app… And I use it all the time to communicate with my two world traveler daughters (and my son) who are literally spread out around the world.
I only have one single gripe with WhatsApp, and it is the ONLY reason that I am rating it four stars instead of five. I do not understand why, (with all of the resources available to the developers of an app like this that is so popular), you do NOT have an iPad version of this app available!
Everyone in our family who has an iPhone also has an iPad (and there are many), to allow them to see and manage all of our photos and videos in the larger display format. I do not believe that we are particularly unique out there… Please, get the Apple SDK for iPad, and do the work for Pete’s sake!
ZirconX - App not allowing chats with new numbers
I have not given Whats App permission to access to my contacts. Thus the process of initiating a new chat involves typing out the telephone number of the messaging partner. However, recently, no new chats can be initiated as What’s App keeps giving an error message, after entering the messaging partners number, “number is not on what’s app”- when it clearly IS registered. Tried this on more than one device where I‘m using what’s app (and no contact access granted). I cannot help wondering if this is some sly manner to force users who haven’t granted the app access to contacts, to force them to do so? As I have no plans to grant the App access, if it’s not resolved I’ll be uninstalling the app. Signal is a superior product I’ve been using (from the days of Text Secure!) in any case, just the user base of WA is larger- for the moment anyway. WA- it would be advisable to address this matter, your privacy issues are hard to bat away but this is a total deal breaker.
Jpaulg1 / Jerome - Status features up dates
I would love to see WhatsApp up status features options , Now once you and another person have each other number saved we can view each other status which is nice but I think it would be a good idea to have a open status where people can view your updates without having your phone number . Keep the old status option but also add a new option where people can follow you like instagram . ( Overall WhatsApp is great ,it allows billions of people to communicate with their family far in different countries by video or voice without paying for unnecessary long distance phone plan and phone card ) WhatsApp is the best but there’s room to improve
rachel_kaylen - Great, but missing one key component
I have been using WhatsApp for years and have never had any issues with it. I’ve really enjoyed the single chat and group chat options, and I appreciate that you can stop a message midway and start listening again where you left off rather than having to always start from the beginning. HOWEVER, I recently purchased an Apple Watch Series 3, and was highly disappointed when I learned that I cannot receive or reply to my WhatsApp messages through it. I use WhatsApp more than any other messaging service, so the fact that they don’t provide an app for the Apple Watch is highly disappointing. I really hope this is something they will reconsider and make changes to quickly. The world is quickly advancing in technology and will only keep moving forward - WhatsApp needs to keep up!
RallyNY - Unexpectedly Easy, Love the Encrytion
My title pretty much says it all. I hold out on downloading this for a long time because I had for some reason imagined it would be really complicated. It simply could not have been easier to figure out. There is nothing to figure out. It is simple and intuitive. And I am thrilled with the announcement that all messages are now encrypted. And free international calling? I had no idea that was a feature. I wish I had known this when I travel to Europe it would have a lemonade it the whole saga of getting international Sim card and figuring out how to connect etcetera. Also, now I will never again have to glitchy Skype with my cousins in Colombia! Highly recommend this app. I guess I did have more to say than the title.
First boomer - OOPS! Sorry
I was scrolling down the pages in the app and my finger accidentally landed on the stars button for rating What’sApp as I scrolled the page. There’s no way to undo. I rthink I saw one star flash, but it shows three stars, which is at least better, but not enough for What’sApp which does sooo much. Imagine an app that performs so many tasks, avoids so many charges. is not laborious to use, AND is FREE!!!
I’ve had other opportunities to rate and have given it 4 stars. That’s the most stars I give unless the app solves an intractable problem, is the only one, or first/best one to do so, and is perfect. Don’t want to dilute the 5 to preserve its value. When I’ve used more of What’sApp I may rate it a 5. It’s close.
So if you’re wondering who is the dummy who rated What’sApp an odd 3, it’s me. Sorry.
Megadiversion - Love WhatsApp!!!
This is the most user friendly texting App!
It is so easy to send messages, videos, phone calls, voice messages, use voice to send texts and stay in touch with other individuals and groups with chats and broadcast lists. It’s SOO versatile.
This is the main way of communicating for most countries outside the US. We lived in Ireland and Panamá for the last 13 years and all those people and the surrounding countries use it. It’s so wonderful. We hope the US will catch on soon!!
We use it for our families, friends, and prayer support groups. The school use it with official and unofficial class chats, staff chats and important school info, including emergency schools messages are sent there as well, because everyone has it!
I love the search features to find important info and the ability to star favorite texts and photos that I don’t want erased.
The ability to slide a message or photo over and make a comment on it is brilliant. Copy, pasting and forwarding is so easy too. As I try to communicate on messages and Facebook, I get frustrated with it’s limitations. I so prefer WhatsApp!
Thank you, WhatsApp, for doing a great job!
topraman101 - It’s a good app but here is how it can be IMPROVED
WhatsApp is a great way for me to keep in touch with my family and friends from around the world. For me, WhatsApp is the go-to app to text my cousins and uncle and aunt in India. The only thing WhatsApp lacks is a WhatsApp iPad app. Other apps like GroupMe have an iPad app. I want to see a WhatsApp iPad app soon. I know that the iPad doesn’t have specific features required for the iPad but there should be a way to have WhatsApp on iPad. I have tried to email the support team about this issue but I got no response! If a WhatsApp iPad app is out of the question, at least optimize WhatsApp for iPad! If there is no WhatsApp iPad app, I may have to delete my account. I would have given it five stars but insisted I have the app a four star rating because of a lack of an iPad app for WhatsApp.
jusy🤟456 - WhatsApps 1 problem
WhatsApp is a really awesome and fun app my best friend made me download and I had known about WhatsApp for a while before I got it but for some reason I didn’t really get the point. But now I’m so happy I got WhatsApp! I can send video messages and cute stickers to my bffs and to anyone anywhere around the world for FREE! And it doesn’t need as much as reception. Another thing I enjoy about WhatsApp is that I can finally do group face times!!! And since I have an iPhone 6 it doesn’t work on FaceTime, by that I mean whenever I try group face time it never shows any faces so I need WhatsApp. And with all that being said I can probably say this, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO MAKE A GROUP CHAT!!! It’s super annoying because I try making group chats and it disappears!!! SO VERY ANNOYING! But that’s the only complaint I have so ya!
Adriana04 - Great app but could use improvement
I love how this app connects people all over the world for free. Whenever I travel and meet people, we can easily talk on whatsapp. I can call and video chat which is great but uses a lot of data. I don’t like that whatsapp compresses videos and photos so they become lower quality. Sometimes the audio in the videos is lost or lagging. Also I wish they would move the call options behind the screen somewhere. It’s just too easy to accidentally call someone which happens to me all the time when all I wanna do is see the profile information or check the picture or even when I just scroll through the messages. Or at least they could add an extra step and ask us if we are sure we want to call someone before it dials.
Edniredo - Text font options and dark mode and other fixes
Great app, been using it over the generations from the s40s. But it would be nice to be able to text permanently in italics or bold ; please give us the ability to have that preference as the italics or bold options are more visually appealing for some of us , also please give us a dark mode; the all white is great but it’s messing the eye up low light conditions, it’d be a big upgrade to get a dark mode. Also video quality on WhatsApp statuses are a mess especially when you have poor internet some low data mode option should be able to load snaps seamlessly at a particular speed. Thanks and I’d be hoping to find some of the fixes in the next update. 😝
MCLock #3020 - My first time using your Application.
Of course my daughter had to put the application on my iPhone she’s 22yrs. I’m BC ( before Christ )for technology, just not my thing. So my phone rang with the strange ringtone and I push the button and there appears my son, Who I haven’t seen for a year because he’s deployed in Europe in the Army. We had a lot of catching up to do with his career and what I was doing because I’m retired, While we were talking it was just amazing to me to think that he’s halfway around the planet and I’m talking to him live on my iPhone, which was just freaking bloody unbelievable. So I guess technology does have its place, thank you guys for being out there and connecting families all over the world. Sincerely Michael C Lock Retired MPD #3020,Idaho.
SimpleComplex24 - Great Avenue for Communicating
Due to relocation outside of the US, this app has been my “go to” and main source of communicating with family and friends. I have tried other apps similar such as Skype, however his app by far is the best in regards to quality and reliability. I rarely have issues with calls and video chats dropping and the messaging is superb. The picture quality while using video is very clear and although my family and I are thousands of miles away, with the use of this app we are still able to feel a sense of home. If you’re considering this app, I say give it a try, just make sure the ppl who you are trying to stay in contact with have the app as well and you’re good to go!
Jolly jolly mee - Problems with customer service.
They want the app to be a “safe space” but I have one user I’ve been having problems with. I want to report said user but I want to talk with a representative from the app first to talk about my options before I outright report. I’ve so far attempted to email them but I have gotten what seems to be auto responses. Customer service... not user friendly. It’s a good app if you don’t run in to problems and make an informed decision about reporting someone. I’d really like to call someone and see their take instead of having to use email.
Also that they can’t restore messages for you is really annoying when the messages you lost depict criminal seeming behavior you would want to report to law enforcement but don’t have because you lost them. I would want to speak with a representative to see if they can restore lost messages for investigative purposes.
John Uroza - It’s an awesome app but......
I love the app okay. I use this app to meet new people all over the world but one thing that i hate well make it two. One of them is the quality of the pictures and videos you post on your story. I upload and share high quality videos and pictures but when you post them to the app it makes everything low quality. It’s so annoying and second is the video duration. 30 seconds it’s too short. I want to oust some fun and funny videos but in order to do that i have to cut it in to pieces which is annoying. WhatApp should make a video last at least 3 minutes. Please read this team WhatsApp I enjoy your app but these two things need to be fixed. Thanks
glory_sk - Love it but add filters
I love this app. Everyone in my family uses it and it’s a great way to connect with people all around the world. I love status updates too. The only suggestion I would make is I think WhatsApp should also add filters for the photo button along with lenses a lot like Snapchat. I think that would be rlly cool and I’d be looking forward to seeing how that would look like.
Ok so I changed this recently. WhatsApp was working just fine until now. Whenever I open WhatsApp, and I’ve tried restarting my phone multiple times, it crashes and the volume button shows up and starts to flash and do really wierd stuff and it blocks my sight and won’t turn off. But whenever I go back to close the app suddenly my screen is working all fine. So obviously it’s a problem with WhatsApp and I’m really unhappy right now so pls change it I really don’t want to stop using it. As soon as u fix this I will make it 5 stars again
Emma PF - WhatsApp: My safe space
I looooovvve WhatsApp, it’s my safe space. Not only it help me stay tune with my friends and family which I spend many hours of my day talking to but also with its story feature, it helps me share moments with them as well now the only thing is that I wish they could last longer like I could be able to post longer than 30s videos(Like can we even have a WhatsApp TV 📺 or be able to go live on WhatsApp? Lol). Another thing is that I wish I could log out of my account sometimes instead of deleting the app from my phone if I wanted to be off for a moment. So longer videos and a long out button switch and Boom, this app will be a 5 stars ⭐️ for me
Blte_m3 - Sticker management
I tried sending an email to your support but it says invalid address so I’m posting it here. Not a complaint but a suggestion.
It’s really a suggestion I hope you implement. I have stickers that I can’t download packs for one reason or another so they are all saved in my favorites. I would like to be able to have folders inside my favorite so I can organize them the way I like. (Ie: laughing stickers, baby stickers, hearts, islamic greetings, funny, etc.) I have over 500 stickers in my favorite and I’d like to be able to access them in a speedier way please. So like click favorites then inside favorites have folder options that I can drop stickers I want or click on a sticker and have an option to “move to this folder” kind of a thing. ☺️

Crabby1963 - Awesome app
I’m on holiday from Australia visiting UK, Germany and Spain, I brought my current iPhone and an old one, putting a local pre paid UK SIM with 10 gig of data for one month in the old phone which works throughout the EU as a local phone when phoning a UK number.
I have WhatsApp installed on both phones so when I can’t mooch off free wifi with my normal phone, which remains on ‘airplane mode’ all the time to avoid the horrendous global roaming charges when I want to phone or msg home, I use the UK/EU SIM with WhatsApp and use the data allowance on that phone instead of paying the international call rates to call or chat.
It works great for me.
AussieStarWarsFan77 - Mac and iPad Video Support!
I like this app but wish you could use it on a desktop and an iPad which you can use it but you can’t make video calls or voice calls on either devices!
If I knew how to create an app like this I’d definitely would’ve made it so it could work on everything where you can make video and voice calls on iPhone, iPad, Macs. Because who likes seeing their friends on a bigger screen instead of just on an iPhone!
If your users had this added feature then you’d probably get more people using it! I understand the portability of using it on an iPhone because you can be anywhere and it’s convenient but lots of people also like using their iPad and Mac too!
Besides I think video calls look better on a bigger screen! And you can fit more people into the call as well where as with an iPhone you need to hand it to the other person but on an iPad or a Mac you can all be standing or sitting in front of the camera!
Plus it’s nearly the end of 2020 not 1999 so lots of apps like this allowed video calls on everything now not just a phone!
So please add this feature to iPad and Mac desktop versions as it would make the app so much more useable!
Izz01 - Great app but international?
I have done a bit of research on whether whatsapp is free internationally.
I am still too unsure that i won’t be charged, and i find the app’s description to be very inconclusive.
It says INTERNATIONAL CALLS AND TEXTING FREE but it has the * symbol.
Then you scroll down and it says
*Data charges may apply.
What the hell does that even mean? I’m tired of searching for the true answer and I don’t want to take the chance and lose money. There is no conclusive answer anywhere.
I would like to be able to move past instagram dms and talk to my friend internationally using my mobile data, because using my mobile data to go on instagram takes up a lot more data than going on whatsapp.
Please can you give me a straight answer?? I would really like to contact my friend more often.
Thank you very much,
(note: this app has been very good for all my other friends who live in australia and my city, especially contacting those who have androids, or just catching up with old school friends in a group chat. I love using whatsapp I would just like to know about the international thing.)
your local crackhead - Great app! Available on more devices please?
WhatsApp is honestly one of my favorite ways to text my friends and there’s very few bugs. It’s a great quality app and I’ve had it for about 3 months now and I haven’t had any problems that weren’t fixed by an update. The only downside is that I recently broke my phone and can’t see the screen at all but I don’t have the money for a new phone just yet, it would honestly be great if it was possible to have WhatsApp expand to iPad and iPod just to make it easier for people that can’t get it because they don’t have a phone or their phones are currently broken. Please expand this to more devices. Thx
navjotsaini - Need to be add very important feature
Hii, WhatsApp i want to suggest that please add a new feature to check a particular date chat in this feature we can check any information from our chat which i had before a month. In the absence of this feature sometimes we want a information which we have shared via chat with someone or we want it immediately but it takes too much time to find. So, it will be easy to find if just open a particular chat and search a particular date and get all within a min. I am looking forward for this update.
appview234 - Great app. Needs more archiving options.
I love this app to keep in contact with overseas friend and family. It would be great to be able to permanently archive an active group chat. Turning off notifications and muting the chat helps as long as you’re not actually using the app. However if you’re using it the number of messages still appears next to the chat and the chat always stays at the top of your list. The only other way to not see the chat is to leave the group which can be awkward. Please make this a feature in the next version. And also a way to organise chats under different categories/tabs would be awesome.
ミニpouce - Enable Poll Function and Deletable Unread Message
Thank you WhatsApp! It has been such a great tool for communication so far, I thought that it would be great if a poll function can also be integrated in the group chat — especially useful when trying to organise event etc so people can quickly choose the dates etc... or the going or not going rsvp function like we have in Facebook messenger?
Also is it possible to have unread messages to be deletable forever for all recipients? It seems that it is currently only deletable within certain minutes after its being sent?
@Traffic Run - Fantastic and would recommend!
Wow! I was honestly very surprised when I got this app that it was going to be this useful and fantastic! I would never not recommend this app to all of you! This app is great for these times especially because you can still talk to friends and family! CoronaVirus is terrible so talking to your friends on This is great! Would recommend to everyone! I would say 7+ for this app! If your parents are worried about this app for you then show them this comment! This app is great for all ages! Recommend by...
Raymondgram - Needs an Apple Watch app!
Calls through WhatsApp do not work on Apple Watch. I cannot tell who is calling me which forces me to take my phone out of my pocket to see who is calling. When my phone is on silent this can be rather annoying as I may miss the call entirely. Even Facebook Messenger has the same problem even though it has an Apple Watch app! This could probably be solved by sending a simple notification to the Notification centre when phone calls are being received. If possible, a Garmin-watch-like system would be nice with options to decline or answer calls. I’m not sure if that’s possible with Apple’s SDK but I’d at least like to see simple notifications.
Tkh34702D - Vert
6 Aug 2018. Love the app, but have found that Siri does not work with this app. When asking Siri to send a message to a contact using WhatsApp the reply is always the same “ mmmm couldn’t find Pat or John or whoever in your WhatsApp contacts” It doesn’t matter which contact name I choose it’s always the same reply. I have checked all my settings, given WhatsApp access to my contacts but still Siri, comes back with the same response.
I thought at first it might be my phone (iPhone 6) but after trying it on my friends phone (iPhone 6) same thing Siri could not send a message or ring a contact using WhatsApp on her phone. On her phone the response was the same.
I have tried different ways of asking Siri the question.
1. Using WhatsApp ring Pat.
2. Ring John using WhatsApp
3. Dial John using WhatsApp
4. Using WhatsApp dial Steve
5. Using WhatsApp call Steve.
6. Call Home using WhatsApp
But I get the same answer
“Sorry WhatsApp couldn’t find John in your contacts who would you like to call?” 😪
genevievedee - Great but room for improvement
I use Whatsapp all the time to communicate with family and friends around the world. It’s incredibly convenient and simple and for the most part, has been an absolute pleasure to use.
With the latest IOS 11 update however, I’ve noticed the app has become a lot more laggy - particularly when I’m typing a message and I switch to and from the emoji keyboard. The app will often freeze for 15-20 seconds as soon as I have switched from one or the other which I am finding terribly annoying.
I would also love if we were able to use Whatsapp on a computer without it needing to be synced to your phone in order to function. Other messaging apps (iMessage, Facebook Messenger, LINE, Kakaotalk) allow this - what’s up, Whatsapp?
Otherwise a great app. A couple of minor improvements could be made but it is useful nonetheless. Probably my most-used app!
thlanabatu - It needs to have iPad cross platform
I love this app, I didn’t use it a while ago but I really think it’s great. I recommended it to a friend and she got it to and also like it. But I only have one problem it doesn’t allow iPads to get the app. Now I have a phone but at the moment I want to be able to use my iPad which for starters has a much bigger screen and allows for more movement. Even when u tried to use an airdrop to try to get it on my iPad it didn’t work. I think getting it on iPad would be great and then my other friends can also get it cause most of them use iPads
نوف الربيعي•* - Love it but please add this feature
I really love this app to the extent that I can’t imagine living without it because it’s where I can contact all my friends and relatives who use it very easily! Thank you very much
However I’m frustrated that I can’t send videos of large sizes. It’s really frustrating to like a video and benefit from it and then you can’t share it with your lived ones just because of the size limit. So if you could fix that that would be VERY appreciated :)! Thanks again for the lovely app!
nidgereedo - Auto Chat Backup Not Working
1. Chat backup used to happen daily when plugged in and connected to wifi. Since the last major release, this has stopped working. Only manual updates work.
2. Add more notification management
Please add a way to suppress/silent subsequent messages from the same person/group within a short period. People tend to send messages as they type these days, rather than write a massive paragraph and send at the end. Would be good to have the option to only push notify once every 30 seconds perhaps from the same sender.
Tarzz-555 - Great for overseas however....
This app is brilliant for overseas travelling and holidays, or just to message friends and family in other countries, as it doesn't need the use of mobile data, only wifi. This could be even better if it didn't need wifi because you could use it out and about. And with a multiple photo selection because one at a time is very hard for large amounts. Overall it is great. I am using it to message family while I am away in another country. I have wifi and it uses no mobile data unless you choose :))
1234567891012131415161819 - Great app!
I think the app is great, but when I look at the messages it has grey and blue ticks, 2 grey ticks means that it has been delivered and 2 blue ticks means that it has been read. The only thing I think they should improve the app is to make as many blue ticks there is as people. Eg. if I have a group chat of 8 but only 5 people have read my text then it should have 5 blue ticks, but if all of the people in my group chat have read it they should make it one tick but another colour like red or something so I know that everyone has read it. But other then that I think this app is Awesome
Holiday mad - Great for home and International
Works off your phones data plan if you don’t hook to wifi. Data rates will apply as per your phone plan so if you use up your data you will be be charged. When you go international always make sure there is available free wifi and hook to it prior to using Whatsapp, that way you won’t use up your data plan (which happens really quick when outside your own country) and there won’t be any charges. It’s the only app I use when I travel.
Jplyz - Thank the Nerds!!
Finally an app that does exactly as it says. Its got very good support. Picture is usually very clear and if your network is good then the app performs brilliantly. Its sound is crystal clear. Its only drawback is it doesnt have pictures to choose from in app so your constantly having to go to your own saved stuff, or use gif apps. All in all well worth downloading now, what are you waiting for you already have the written invitation. Its the only communications app you will ever need.
fayaz_mohd - Latest update malfunction
First of all, would like to say great app, brings the family and friends closer. I am really enjoying this app and thankful for that. But after latest update, my app won’t show any notifications and I won’t know any messages or call until I open the app. I tried changing the notifications settings and reverting back to default, yet there is no change. If you could please find me a solution, I would highly appreciate it. Thanks.
c.mavris - Great but...
Great app but I hate how when I go into the app because someone has messaged me - wether I click on the message or not it would the little 1 that says I have 1 new message disappears. If I forget to open the message - because the one disappears I forget and don’t open the message. I had a message from 3 months ago. I opened the app to do something g unrelated to the message. But because I OPENED the app NOT the message itself- the little notification disappeared. I didn’t remember till recently that I had this message. Please fix this-
Gigi_rocks18 - Great app
I’ve been using WhatsApp for about a year now and I absolutely love it. It’s great with you’re overseas because I went to the US last year and it was great to text me friends from the other side of the world. I love the multiple FaceTime feature and the status one. I really hope you could make the background options better but I don’t mind as I use my own. I love WhatsApp and before I used Viber which was similar but WhatsApp honestly is better!
teacher&student - Excellent app for communication
All the features are perfect. One kind request. We need an option where it will enable the admin in a whatsapp group to block a particular troubling contact number.
Incident: few teachers have created a group to share the educational details the link was shared publicly. One unknown person joins using that link and keeps on sharing bad irritating information and links. But no one is able to block that contact including the admin. If there is a option to sort this it will be great. Thanks ☺️☺️☺️
Dominicas - Data sharing with face book without the option to turn off
Not secure. So your sending my data to Facebook and I can’t turn it off? Really? If you were honest about your data gouging you wouldn’t have to spend so much on PR damage control. If I’m wrong please advise how I can “opt out” of you stealing and selling my personal information and also please advise how I can get you to delete the data that your sharing? I’d say thank you but this is just another vile privacy violation. Stop selling my personal information and give me the option to stop “sharing” fun fact when someone is sharing personal information without knowledge or consent of the “customer” it’s actually stealing.
Tom5755444 - Excellent app but...
Secure, calls, video calls, txt and group txt.
Excellent for international use as only a WiFi connection is required.
My only complaint is call and video calls connect too quickly. If you accidentally tap on someone’s name there is no time to disconnect the call and they will receive a missed call. It would be better it was like the iPhones where connection took place after a second or so to give you time to disconnect.
irenekusum - What’s app - My Favourite Technology for Communication!
WhatsApp is one tool that I’ve been using for the past many years to communicate and keep in touch with my family,relatives and friends especially with my children who live outside our country.
I appreciate all the hard work and efforts to add new features and make it more user friendly. I’m very grateful for keeping it as a free app.
Wishing you the very best! May you make many, many more happy in this hitec world!
𝔸𝕖𝕤𝕥𝕙𝕖𝕥𝕚𝕔𝕊𝕚𝕤 シ - Amazing!
So when l came back to school, l had just gotten a phone. I really needed something other that the normal messages app on all iPhones and WeChat. So after a few days, my friend introduced me to WhatsApp. It’s really easy to use and l like how you can change the background- .
If you need a app besides Messages or any default massaging system on your phone, l really recommend WhatsApp as it is convenient, good quality and just great for everyone’s use!
Bob@aus - Another way to steal the information
I was in remote area and was off from Facebook and what’s app for 15 days as soon as return from trip I called my wife and talked about a Red Camera hire , I never search about renting this item on internet just had a phone discussion on whatsapp , as soon as i hung up and opens Facebook after 15 days I start getting sponsored post about renting Red camera in my local area , I was shocked. Then I made another call on whatsapp to my friend and talked about completely different item , and guess what got the same items advertisements on fb. So they are legally or illegally hearing your so called encrypted conversations and selling your data. Bunch of thugs
mimz.j - A solution to a common problem!
I would recommend a solution to a very common problem that is facing a lot of whatsapp users. The problem is hence we are members of lots of groups, the single chats disappear down under and we dont see it easily hence the groups are active and keeps popping up first. My recommendations is to make a separate icon for groups chats and keep the single chats separate like how u separate calls from chats plz. That would definitely help since we can not pin lots of chats up. Thanks,
alexonline888 - Keeps CRASHING
WhatsApp decides it likes to crash. If you keep opening it a few times, during which it usually crashes back to the home screen almost immediately, you can get it stable again for a while, but if you switch to another app and come back, the instability is back, too.
The only way to fix this is to restart your phone, which is annoying. The fact WhatsApp comes from Facebook, you’d think software quality would be top notch, but because WhatsApp works for a while and then exhibits the crashing that I’ve seen people online complain about for years, this is the worst and most unreliable app I’ve used.
Thank goodness I can use WhatsApp on my Mac or iPad, because the phone version exhibits instability that must be a focus for the developers to fix urgently! Please fix ASAP, I’m not the only person experiencing this as can be ascertained by a simple google search.
I’m using an iPhone 11 Pro Max so am on the latest hardware and iOS 13.4.
genius observer - Most unfriendly in this kind.
I never understood why so many people use this incredibly stupid app in the worldwide! The stupid as showing the phone number in most significant part in the entire app! Do I suppose to remember everyone’s phone number? The states of internet can’t let customers let feedback, lead me miss many messages. Login options is poor, never supposed to use it overseas with a new device. And if you lost your phone number accessional, than that it, you’d never expect your information and contact back. Literal every other apps in chat is better than this! WhatsApp? What a ***** App!
Plz! Everyone! Save the world! Start from delete this app from ME! And YOU!
Fatima ibrahim - I have a suggestion
I've always hated and feared chaining my phone or restoring it or accidentally deleting WhatsApp because then I would loose all my data (Been there done that and it's painful)and I know A lot of ppl struggling like I do
So I would love it if the data gets saved on the app giving the phone number just like telegram
Don't know how they've done it but it's probably the only feature that makes it better than WhatsApp
Other than that nothing can compete with this app absolutely love it
sydney michael - Best App
I have only been introduced to this app by my first daughter who was travelling overseas and using this app, I am talking to her on a daily basis without having to spend any money on my international phone bills.... I still remember my old days when we used to make a very short quick international calls to say “hello” and hang up as the overseas calls were really really expensive in 70s and 80s. Amazing and what a wonderful app this is. From Sydney Australia. Michael.
Ebsweets - Love it!
It’s like being able to hold a private ongoing meeting with people of my choice and keep notes, documents, photos and shared links all in one place! I absolutely love it!
However I’d really like a companion of this app to use on my iPad. Your copy cats seem to be ruining your reputation by really screwing up the privacy and putting in ads that run up fees. Why not kick them to the curb and make an app for iPad so my kids can talk to their gramma without using my phone. That would be the bomb around here. Then 5 stars 😁
aussieforgood - Disable the call feature
Would be nice if they would implement an option to disable making and receiving calls. Some countries don’t allow you to make and receive calls so when you get a call your phone rings but when you answer it disconnects. It’s really annoying to get what you think is a phone call only to realise it’s what’s app. You should be able to disable calls whenever you don’t want to receive any. You could also move the call icon somewhere where you don’t always accidentally call the person you’re chatting to like in a hidden menu.
Moffat16 - Saved at Ben Gurion
A friend recommended the App to me while I was overseas. It saved the day on 2 occasions when Telstra let me down. I needed to urgently confirm a travel detail in Malta. Within a short time I was speaking to my agent who sorted it immediately.
Soon after that I found myself stranded at Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv. I was able to contact the tour leader who happened to be Jane Hutcheon who notified our guide. He retraced my steps within the airport and soon found me! Was I glad to see him!
Aksbhavsar52 - Desktop to phone sync
Please do fix the issue where even my phone is connected to the internet all the time
But still my Mac whatsapp says “not connected to internet”
Upto I understand it’s the phone which is not syncing in the background (yes, my setting for background refresh is on only) and I have to open it to get it connected and let it sync
Rest as you all know we love whatsapp
TAMIZHANDA - Missing 3D Touch Features
I love what’s app since I started using it, user interface completed changed to whole new level with 3D Touch gestures in iPhones like 6S,7,8,X,XS. Unfortunately I updated my iPhone to 11 Pro Max which doesn’t have the 3D Touch, but still Apple provided with an alternate way to interact calling it as “Haptic touch”. I hope in the next update version of what’s app you may use the feature and bring peak and pop to life.
wsuconradie - Willem Conradie
I have lived here in Australia for the past 3 years and all my family and friends are back in South Africa, whom I stay in contact with via whatsapp. The data they refer to is basically like the usage for any multimedia like watching videos or listening to music, but very very little. No charges for calls or texts. And if in WiFi area u don't even use any data on your phone. I don't have a contract, I'm on Optus prepaid. This app is GREAT.
Z Hamza - Option to Stop WhatsApp calls
Please bring the option in next update where i can stop people from calling on WhatsApp without blocking them. It’s so annoying and even after blocking the contact from iPhone settings i still can receive video calls from that specific contact. It’s better to have option stop WhatsApp calls from any contact. Thanks
raile100 - Calls
I have been using WhatsApp for many years and have always been happy with it. When they first introduced the calls i deactivated the microphone. Now i wanted to activate it again and it is gone. So i cannot make any calls. The microphone is nowhere to be found. Neither internet nor 3 phoneshops could help with this. Whatsapp Support cannot be accessed via the app. Have to install email or on the pc. Would really love to see in app help that works, therefore one star less.

Hello whatsapp team,
No doubt, it is amazing app and you’re adding more n more features. I would like to tell about minor issue. When I’m using whatsapp, and try to rotate my phone in auto rotation mode my screen goes white and remains white. I can’t see anything except just white display. Please fix this issue. All things are updated my iOS and Whatsapp latest update.
Thank you so much for this amazing app.
EnforcedWarwick - My favourite Messenger
This happens to be one of my favourite messaging apps. I really do like it how you can delete the conversations from the other person absolutely brilliant! The unsend feature isnreally helpful, much better than so many others. I highly recommend this application to anyone and also the background chatrooms is totally brilliant a well, the images (especially the city image is very captivating).
MR_1995 - Awesome app!
Hi WhatsApp... I think you’ve got an awesome app here. The UI is simple, clean and very user friendly! The ONE thing that would make me click that 5th star is an Apple Watch compatible app... I love being able to have my iPhone on my wrist but kinda bummed that there is no WhatsApp app for the watch because it means if I forget my phone I still miss all my WhatsApp notifications. Would love an app for the watch... pleeease!! Otherwise you guys have done an awesome job and I love using this app👍🏼 Thanks!!
sadiq Saba - WhatsApp the best lip tip SERVICE
I’ve been using WhatApp since beginning and admit from the core of my heart that it provided me the ultimate desired services, I needed. It surely is the true blessing of modern time which bridged the gap between me and my kith and kin who always remained out of my reach. It has provide a free lip-to-lip service to present gestation. I owe respect and thanks to it for its blessings. Today, it has become the true voice of needy people. I owe solute to WhatsApp.
Mia🍪😜 - WhatsApp review
To WhatsApp, I love the app and it's a great way to communicate and talk to friends. I can message my friends and family with this app. I think there are a couple of improvements but none that I can think of!! It would be AWESOME if you could message without wifi but I know that will never happen sadly.😭 If you do end up making it able to use WhatsApp without wifi I'll always use WhatsApp because not everyone has data. Thanks
RenateGen - I love whatsapp
The best app I could ever have! Best way to keep in touch with family and friends whilst not living in the same country.
What need improvement is that I reckon it time for whatsapp to fun filters like Snapchat & Instagram, most of my family and friends aren’t into social media. It would be so much fun for whatsapp filters & have fun along the way. Time for whatsapp to get that upgraded 👍
Abzkebabbz - 2phones 1 whatsapp number
Awesome app but lately getting annoyed. I have 2 phones, work and home n have downloaded whatsapp on both. However I can't use the other app because as soon as i put my number in it takes it of the other phone. Would be easier to use the same number for both whatsapps. Don't want to use my work number for this. Please allow for this. Would make life easier n much more enjoyable to use. Thanks
ptnmrk - Connection Unstable
Competitor apps give much better call stability than Whattsapp. I am in the centre of Kuala Lumpur and I rarely get through a call without it being interrupted saying it is reconnecting. Goodness knows how people use the app outside major cities.
Additionally, no matter how hard I try I can’t get my iPhone to ring when someone tries to ring me on Whattsapp. It will only ring when I am in the middle of trying to send a text.
Come on guys it’s not exactly the most complex app on the planet. How long is it going to take to get a fix to these basic problems. Stop adding functions I don’t need and get the ones I do need working properly.
Emoji15 - So Good
I am so glad to have finally found a contact website that doesn’t store all my messages in a databank for them to sell to other companies. I am also pleased with the fact that you can change the background of you conversation and have group chats with people who don’t have apple phones. The only downside to this app is that you can’t block other people’s status updates from appearing but apart from that a really good app.
pliakfo - Pliakfo
I love using ur app, but for the last few months, find it difficult to connect to wifi, and it’s only ur app. I have a brand new iPhone, but most times, it will not connect on video calls using wifi.
I’m also noticing over the last few weeks that when I send a message, sometimes, it will not go through to the other person for at least 25 mins to an hour.
Please fix these issues as I love using ur app, but these issues make it difficult to do so

Rayhan-6s - Recommendation
One annoying thing with whatsapp is the absence of control over accepting a group invitation. Anyone can create a group and add you , giving you no choice to accept or decline . Additionally, the option to block a group just like u block a single user should be available.

Lexiax - Where’s dark mode?
It works fine. But where’s dark mode? Surely it can’t take this long to implement it? The app sticks out like a sore thumb.
NEET0802 - Recommendation

bettertastethanyours - Oct 30th still waiting for dark mode
Where is dark mode? Why is it not compatible with ios native dark mode and why does the app not have an in app dark mode toggle? Did Whatsapp miss the global memo?
isuckless - Could not pass initial setup
Cannot send SMS to my phone. This really deserves O stars
lookforanix - Dark mode on ios 13
Apple has introduced dark mode in iOS 13. Pls implement dark mode functionality in WhatsApp too that can get controlled by the OS level feature.
Roxcee88 - Recently very buggy
This app has disconnected my account more than 10 times in the last 2 days. Very inconvenient and I can't seem to figure out why it's doing so. My chat background images have also been reset so I'm guessing it was from a recent update but I didn't get any notifications.
Leonardo Skinner - The same stupid thing of every month
Lots of updates every week for nothing, this is the same app since beginning. Don’t update it anymore if you do not have absolutely nothing to update.
Ivan Jacob St Abanoub - Needs dark mode
This app seriously needs the option for dark mode. How does it not already. Please update this app to have it. It took apple a long time to finally develop a dark mode option yet it’s taking even longer for this app. It’s almost 2020, get with the times.
Stellarlight_Qc - Latest update
Your latest update notes should read "major spying flaw patched" instead of talking about stickers....
ravingdinosaur - Dark mode
Dark mode? Late as usual?
Adventure_in_Colours - Dark mode
How comes most applications (IOS) have dark mode like Instagram, YouTube etc, but Whatsapp has nothing like that. Please include it.
Jassparmar - WhatsApp

Wee Wee Wa - Make Whatsapp An iPad App
Please make WhatsApp an iPad app.
aaaaassggggg - Fantastic
Simple to use
tin387 - Transferring Messages to new phone
Dear whatsapp, can you PLEASE make it easier for whatsapp users to transfer their chat history to their new phones regardless of what kind of phone the user is switching too. I don’t understand how I can back up every all my chats on the old phone but then when I attempt to get whatsapp on the new one with the same phone number it says no backup found. It is incredibly frustrating to lose my previous conversations every time I get a new phone or restore. Instagram and Snapchat both have messaging platforms available and save conversations from the beginning. It shouldn’t be this hard.
maxi konkon - New update not nice
Please just because someone mutes a chat doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to read the chats, this new update is not nice at all, I don’t have to open then app before I know I have 1 thousand messages waiting for me, please change it back
Windsw - Best communication app for sure!

A dark mode would be perfect to make it easier on the eyes.
Killygirl - Security Updated???
Your most recent update, which was supposed include the security update following the NSO group spyware and rolled out Monday May 13/19, makes no mention of it. I am aware Facebook (who owns Whatsapp) has made a server-side change to address this significant security breach however I would like to be informed/assured that the latest Whatsapp update rolled out does in fact address this serious issue.
Nowaymannn - Hacked
After a New York Times article exposed whatapp vulnerability to allowing the hacking of you Iphone, you can now be sure that your iPhone is NOT as secure as apple pretends it is.
Ranapartap - Very bad update

It takes avant-garde,perspicacious remarkable practical informatics thinkers to conceive such app concepts..imagine..rationing out voice time with data..how economical can it get? Brilliant and hats down!
CHYNNAH DOLL - Dark mode
What’s app needs a dark mode all the other apps are doing it... it’s time!!! 😏
bombstar - Brilliant
<3 skinny chicks with big tits - Annoying
Keeps pestering me about turning on my notifications. I already closed that pop up hundreds of times but it keeps asking and asking every day that I turn my notifications on.
This is as bad as an app asking for reviews everyday (but Apple force limit those).
sambear11 - User interphase 🤢🤢
The new update made the layout so UGLYY it’s literally disgusting the messages are dark green and black can y’all change it back to how it was
Adaegoyibo - Add edit feature for status update
Please add this feature🙂. Deleting status after updating due to typographic error and having to start typing all over again is cumbersome 🤦🏾♀️🙆🏽
scammelltoe - Forced to update
I hate when I’m forced to either update or discontinue usage of an app. Like, w t f FB? My phone is older and if I keep updating things I’ll use up my remaining storage space. Especially for “Bug Fixes” - which is literally the description of the latest updates. That’s ridiculous, I just wanna be able to communicate with my family.
ifrahqamar12 - Show Preview
I don't want to show preview msgs on my iPhone but its show on my lock screen voice calling when some one txt me. Will you please fix that bug
ndjfjrjej - one STAR
I give this a one star because random people keep texting kids and other people and I’m one of them... the could be kidnappers fix this cuz I don’t want no one getting kidnapped that’s just stupid
10Fresh - notifications sometimes mutes on its own.
When the wechat is doing an update, we kinda forced to use iMessage, and when someone use the damn androids, we have to use this “what is app” app. Thanks Trump.

Everything is nice but pls just add edit message mode it will be very good

ImJooJoo - WhatsApp is GREAT
My friends tell me that I stuck in 1900’s !!!
Because I hate changes and new things including technology!! My mom lives overseas and she feels very lonely especially after my dad’s death. Many times my cousins were encouraging me to use WhatsApp but I was refusing it. Finally recently when my mom had a heart issue, I was really worried and I wanted to see her through the cell phone. My cousin over the phone, step by step guided me to download this app. It was so easy and now I’m SO GLAD that I tried it. My mom bought a smart phone and now a couple times a day we can talk and see each other for absolutely FREE of charge :) :) :)
I want to thank WhatsApp for letting us to contact each other very easily.
Paul76445 - Not sure what life was like before it
What’s App has been much more useful and valuable than I would have ever imagined, both personally (friends, family) and professionally (working groups, community groups). I’m still baffled why it’s used by so relatively few people in the United States, but in every other country in the world, it’s the #1 App
For example, in Costa Rica, 94% of all smart phone users have and use What’s App.
I have made the bold argument that if I had to choose between only having email or only having What’s App, I would choose What’s App.
One suggestion/improvement that is so very needed. I want to be able to send What’s App in the middle of the night when an idea hits me or I want to remind an employee or group about something important say at 2:21 am, however then I feel bad that I am pinging people’s phones on their nightstands in the middle of the night. From midnight to 6:00 am, I wish I could What’s App and then have it ask me to “deliver now” or deliver say at 7:00 am. I still get done what I have to, but my employees, colleagues or group members don’t feel the middle of the night intrusion
Hrusmine - "Delete this message" feature
I really enjoy using this app and I've always preferred it over other social networking apps. But there's one thing that really gets me and that is, the "delete for everyone" feature; Basically the reason we delete a message is because we don't want the recipient to see the content of that message or we don't want them to know about the message itself at first place. So taking that into account, it doesn't make sense that whatsapp shows the recipient that I deleted a message.
So it would be amazing if you guys can rethink this feature and make the delete action not visible.
Thank you in advance for the amazing the future update 🙏🏼🙏🏼
Arie Ortiz - Pretty good, but there are some things that bother me.
I really like that this app allows me to speak to anyone that is available on here without having to worry about paying some huge fee if it is someone overseas. However, there are a few issues I have with this:
1. I am not sure if this is just my connection, but whenever I am in a video or voice call, I often find that it keeps disconnecting me from the call and a lot of times, I cannot hear the other person.
2. The thing that really bothers me when it comes to calling others on here is that if the connection gets screwed up, I will constantly hear this loud beeping sound, which gets very annoying after a while.
What I personally suggest would be to have it where it doesn't beep so loud. Some could say that I am just sensitive to that, but I find that even if the volume is very low, the beeping can be quite loud, while I can barely hear the one I am talking to on the line.
Again the constant disconnecting could be because we are in 2 different countries or it could be my internet speed. The thing that I would really like to see change is definitely removing that assinying beeping sound!
mudkipzRkewl - Great App!
My brother is doing an internship abroad and it would cost an arm and a leg to communicate with international data with where he is. This app makes it so much easier for me to communicate with him! The app does an excellent job providing text, call, and video call options. I mostly use the texting, and it’s awesome because it’s encrypted between you and the other person so no third-parties can have access to it. Another note is that my dad doesn’t have any social media and this app has made it so he can talk to my brother without having to use someone else’s social media or using my mom’s, mine, or my little brother’s phone to contact him. All around great app, and I haven’t had any issues with it.
Luismccoy - Improve the app by adding much needed features
I typically don’t write reviews but I love WhatsApp and I’ve been a user for years.
I would like to see some new features that will make its users extremely happy and productive.
1- A feature to save locations share across the platform so you can later easily retrieve it by label. Ever had to scroll up to look up that location ? Lol
2- An event creator feature where all your friends can rsvp and it notifies the group of any updates. I have many groups where we organize sport events and night outings an we manually update the list
3- allow for an account to be link to email so if you get a new number you can retrieve your old account. This one is self explanatory and everyone is asking for it
NBow710 - Thread reply like iMessage please!
I love this app it’s how my bf and I were able to communicate while I was away in Mexico since my service wasn’t always great out there. The only thing I don’t like about this app is that if my phone is locked and I have more than one message from the same person, once I reply to one message from the lock screen, all the other messages disappear with it. I’m them forced to open the app completely to be a let to reply to the other messages. I wish we were able to open the message thread on the lock screen like we can with iMessage reply to all the messages and close out without having to unlock the phone and open the app.
Twitch081 - Backup Problem
For some time now I didn’t understand why my data kept running so fast in a short time I’ll have no data left and I have an iPhone XS Max. But I did a few digging on the app only to realize that my Whatsapp backup was on which is fine but after turning off the auto backup I still see it backing up anyway wether it’s on data or WiFi and it’s frustrating because I don’t intent to backup when I don’t want to because it runs off my data and WiFi plan so I’ll be glad if y’all can fix this please and it’ll be cool if y’all can even have a pause option so I can pause it when I feel like to save me some data and continue when I have enough
Roady597 - Unrightful ban
I run a legitimate business since 2007. I have always been very correct towards everyone. Even the most annoying clients. And than there are clients who do not show up, when you leave them a simple reply to please next time leave a message so to not keep me waiting they instead of apologizing block/report you. I have read the terms of service numerous times and never found what i could have done wrong to be “rewarded” a ban. After having sent a message to whatsapp support they out right tell you that people have complained about me. Which is a lie. Whatsapp support doesn't even do proper research to whether the ban is supported or not. Small business often rely on whatsapp for contact towards clients. I could have just gotten another number and reactivated whatsapp. Yet if you have been using the same number since 2007 that can be very annoying. Do better research before banning someone!!!
robyypoo - Unban my account please.
WhatsApp banned my number for no reason at all and will not answer me. I use this app to talk to my friends and family in Isreal and other countries from over here in the US. I loved this app but now I’m mad and confused on why I’m banned. Emailed and got an auto response that began with “ email back if you believe this was a mistake and we will look into it “ that SAME ended in “ responses to this email thread will be ignored “ . I don’t understand. I emailed three times after and now I’m not getting any answers at all. Leaving this review and a message everywhere trying to just get my account back, there are pictures in group chats i don’t have now and it’s all screwed
Piiiii12345 - Change the game
Needless to point the good size, who does't use whatsapp to connect with friends and family? What's missing huge time? Auto-delete media by chat! For iphone users like me, not being able to auto-delete media after a day or so the media was seen or auto-archive them to google photos, for instance, is the most annoying thing I have to manually do regularly in my phone. The only part taking advantage of this lack of functionality is Apple by selling more cloud subscriptions. People will eventually give up and subscribe to apple cloud for more space. PLEASE, enable the auto-delete/auto-archive configuration!! This is an inevitable upgrade to keep the app alive long-term. Even teenagers may start using the app when that happens! This is a win-win-win situation!!
2nd suggestion: Add a speaker versus iphone play button to listen to voice messages.
Bielikov - Essential app here in Chile
WhatsApp here in Chile is pivotal to almost everyday life. Not only to chat with friends but to send exact locations to others, such as a couple of years ago when we had a car accident and our car flew through the air and we did not know where we were. It is a great way to send voice messages and even to talk with friends all over the world.
A month ago I was spammed with “good morning” greetings. This happened to me three weeks before and I uninstalled the program and re-installed again. I thought I was in the clear but I am back to these same annoying spam greetings that show I have a virus. At the moment I seem to be clear of that.
Mtns2Ocn - THANK YOU!
Oh my gosh. Thank you thank you thank you for adding the function that prevents having to hold ones thumb down to record a voice message! This is the best ever. My girlfriend is currently living in Germany, and I am in Santa Barbara, CA, so we have depended hugely on the voice message feature. That said, we often lost our messages >5 minutes in due to a slight wrong gesture of the thumb. On top of that, our thumbs were constantly sore (sounds crazy, but 15 minutes of keeping your thumb pressed in one spot is rough). I have yet to find out if this update also prevents messages from getting deleted if someone calls during the recording, but am definitely crossing my fingers. Nice work!
sharmiza - Complement and recommendations
I love Whatsapp and it is very user friendly. I use to for personal and work purpose. And really helps in my day to day activities at work. Just one suggestion some times in a group chat we want to avoid a particular individual from some conversation and as a result we end up creating a new group each time and that group is never used again after that conversation. Why don’t you create a option in Whatsapp group where you can create a conversation subgroup and select who should be involved in it from the group and once the topic is discussed the conversation subgroup can be closed. This helps a lot of user in personal and business purposes. Just a suggestion and I believe it’s do able.
jetsettingdoug - The Saving Grace of Communicating
Thanks WhatsApp for providing a free and reliable means of keeping in touch with family and friends all the time. I can’t imagine how I would have been able to do so otherwise. While traveling globally, I am able to share and receive updates and messages from my love ones all the time. You have truly revolutionize communication by making it attainable for everyone. I think I can safely say that it’s because of you why Verizon and all the other networks have made texting unlimited and part of their pricing. If I should give an award to the number one most reliable App for communication, it would definitely be WhatsApp.
ja38582 - Please save me from Group Messages!
I like this app and will continue to use it, but there is no way to archive chats and leave them there. I am in a 25 person family group chat (which of course I can’t leave because it will tell everyone) and it’s pretty constantly going, so I “mute” the chat and it doesn’t pop up notifications, but as soon as I open the app I see it at the top of my chat list with a little blue circle of 1,000,000 new messages. I select “archive” and it HALLELUJAH goes away, but THEN (two minutes later) someone sends another message and it pops to the top again... PLEEEEEEEEASE, pretty please with a cherry on top, make a way for me to mute and archive chats that I can control and decide when I want to start seeing them at the top of my chats list again... Please. It would be a life saver.
Ðee - Consistently consistent
This app has got to be the oldest if not one of the oldest message/phone calls/video calls apps that allows you to perform all above mentioned communication methods via WiFi.
A huge perk is that you may do this in both inside and outside your country cellular limits as long as you are connected to WiFi.
There is no unlimited usage in all forms of travel. It varies if you are on a cruise for example, or if you are on a specific travel package when you fly outside of the country- in which the responsibility lies between you and your service provider, not WhatsApp.
This is a fantastic app. Easy to use and straight to the point.
Soundingon - Needs Applewatch support & a little work
Firstly. This desperately needs to have an applewatch app. Desperately!! Of all the social networking/chat apps I have… Line.. wechat… this is the only that DOESN’T support the Applewatch… And I use this WAY more than those apps... Whatsapp incoming calls need work. When someone calls me using Whatsapp, I can never hear anything. I always have to call the person back. Also, I can’t use my bluetooth headphones with the calls and the same pop up notification keeps coming to ask me to turn on notifications. Shouldn't that be my option? Would be great if that would be taken off of the app. It’s the only app I use that does this...
PAYO GASPA - Complain on current and previous update
I love this app yeah cos it’s been basically the commonest app on the app stores with over 7million downloads , I enjoyed the status update option that was introduced too , I’ve been enjoying new features on all updates that’s been brought up until recently when I updated the software And started having issues with searching contacts on my status option , i notices there was another update today so I quickly rushed to get on the latest version and I was surprised and disappointed to see the same problem occurring .. I’m On iOS 14.2 but I don’t think that’s a reason to experience such problems .. please do Something about it as soon as possible .
Lauren_555 - Terrible help after hack
My WhatsApp was hacked and hijacked more than 24hours ago. It’s been used by another person who has access to all my data and is using my identity to scam my contacts and has pretended to be me to hack into several of my friends accounts too.
During this time I’ve been trying through as many means as I can think of to get someone useful at WhatsApp to listen to my story and deactivate my account.
You would think this would be a priority of theirs but I’m afraid most of my messages have gone unanswered and the only person who has responded has simply cut and paste scripted responses to me without actually helping or doing anything.
It’s a disaster, I’ve had to go to the police, I’m having to try to spread the word via as many different means as I can think of to get people to realize the other person isn’t me. And it could be stopped by WhatsApp but I can’t get help.
Ibby11 - Thank you!
On behalf of my neighbors and me, I would like to sincerely thank the WhatsApp crew for a quality service that helped us help our flooded neighbors after Hurricane Harvey! WhatsApp worked when all other forms of contact would not work after the hurricane. We were able to create groups to communicate dire information quickly, efficiently, and without interruption. This allowed us to rescue neighbors, get medical help from neighbors who are part of the medical community when 911 was not working, and then organize volunteer work crews to start checking in on elderly neighbors and finally create volunteer remediation crews. WhatsApp, you are exemplary! Thank you, thank you! Elizabeth SW Houston Texas
Indua - Voice notes stopping music all together
There was an update that came out a while back that currently causes for the voice notes to stop your music even after you finish listening to the voice note, at least for iPhones. I’m not sure about androids. Before when you would listen to a voice note and was listening to music beforehand it would pause the music, play the voice note and then play the music back, but with the current update it no longer does that and it’s frustrating. I truly love this app because this is how I communicate with my fiancé and family from back home. I would greatly appreciate it if you guys consider fixing this tiny issue. Thank you in advance!
SANA143ramesh. - Need privacy on profile photo
I been using WhatsApp since 2012 it’s quite useful. Recently I was trying to hide my profile photo from selected contacts in my contact list but there is no such kind of option, I can not delete those contacts and I can not share my personal information with them as well. One of my friend faced few problems because of this privacy issue, she used to get calls from her nerd boss every time she update profile photo. She can not delete the contact and she don’t like to share personal information as well. We need such kind of option for Profile photo, Last seen and About.
panashesgirl - Profile Photos
WhatsApp I think is the best social app to chat with friends, family and everyone else. And so far I can’t complain about anything. Just there is one thing that some people might enjoy, I know I would. Is if you could choose which people could view your profile photo. Because maybe if you put a profile photo up, certain people that don’t like you, may view it and message you about it saying nasty things.. or you may just want to keep your life private from those who are in your contacts but Arnt exactly a part of something you’d put on your profile photo.
Otherwise everything else is perfect!
IGotHimWithIt - 4💫 With 3 Quips🧐
I’ve been using WhatsApp for so many years now. Having friends and family in Europe, México, Central America, India, Iceland, Alaska, and with myself living in the states, WhatsApp successfully connects us all and ever so seamlessly.
One quip I have about this app is that although you can change the background wallpaper on the display between WhatsApp's included styles, solid color choices or personal pictures of your own, there is *-no_way-* you can change the font, it's color nor the bubble color behind what you’re writing.
After all these years, I'm still irked by not having the freedom of creating and affixing my own style-stamp for chats. That 'creative freedom', as an option, is as fundementally necessary to express myself as is the message it contains.
Another vein of increasing public necessity is encryption for video, chat, calls, etcetera.
Both suggestions are an easy addition.
Oh. And wouldn't it be just lovely for WhatsApp to stop its attempts to railroad me into braiding my contact list in together with it?
If I'd wanted to share my personal information I'd have shared my passwords, too. It's the same thing.
arly80 - Good experience good but not good experience at all
Why is not a good experience I had a phone that I had was with a different number was not this new phone I have and I have my people on that on WhatsApp with that other phone I had with a different number and I can’t get my contacts from that that iPhone anymore and I can talk to the person I was talking to chatting with because what’s up girl never did what they did they never did anything for me to get my contacts on this new phone unfortunately I do you spell my phone and I do not have the contacts of the other phone from WhatsApp I needed him but what’s up did not do that for me when I asked it was a horrible and still is horrible because I still can I get my contacts from WhatsApp and they still haven’t done anything it’s a bad service and it’s a bad thing I like it but they haven’t done anything for me when I needed it
Treborgrose - Chat bubbles
I love WhatsApp! I’ve used it several times to communicate with other friends that don’t own any other social media like Snapchat or Instagram. However for the friends that do not own iPhones neither I like to feel like we are still texting over iMessage. I know many other apps with this feature but not quite as clean as WhatsApp. The feature I am hinting at is the ability to change the chat bubble color. The light green does sometimes get boring or make me think of an older app off the iPod from way back when. If we had the ability to change the color of the chat bubble color I could change the color anytime I wanted and wouldn’t get bored and eventually overtime ask the people I’m texting to switch to an alternative app.
Yosemite gg - Great app. One small problem.
So I've always used WhatsApp as my primary form of communication, and I've never had any problems with it until today. When using broadcast lists, the recipients can't tell that the message was sent to a broadcast. I really like the broadcast list rather than creating a group because on a group everybody gets every reply, which is usually unnecessary. But when I use a broadcast list I get a lot of messages asking if I meant to send to a group. It's not a big deal at all so I still give the app five stars. Just something to keep in mind for future updates. I also really like that WhatsApp now has automatic playthrough.
rawest2063 - Wish I could lock the record button easier
First I’d like to say I love this app. Best app out there for communicating with family friends and friends on the other side of the world.
Now the downside. Being a voiceover user on Apple, I wish there was an easy way to lock the record button. Sometimes holding your thumb there after a long time becomes a problem and you relax your finger or flex it or something, and then there goes your message that you haven’t completed yet.
If there was some sort of magic That a voiceover user could do like a two finger double tap on the screen that might be a solution. I’m not sure. Wish we could resolve this issue. Otherwise again this app is fantastic.
Pupurp - Great app but...
I love this app! It’s very easy to learn and easy to use. But, when I’m calling someone, it always glitches. When I call someone and try to do something on my phone as well it always shuts off my phone for a second then comes back on to the call screen. It’s been happening to me with another app too. So I thought it was just my phone at first. But then, on other apps I use, it doesn’t crash like that. So, I thought it was not my phone. It’s always frustrating when I am texting someone else a photo while in a call with someone and I get sent back to the call screen. Please fix this. I really like and enjoy the app so I was kinda bummed that the app kept crashing. Keep on doing great work!
Swim with nemo - WhatsApp needs a security update big time.
I changed my number for the second fine and I’m still getting spam messAges some are even gory and death threats from spam numbers. How does whattsapp allow this? You need to seriously make this app safer to use. If someone doesn’t have me in their contact and I have no idea who they are. How are they allowed to message and spam me with nonsense? You guys should be ashamed with the lack of security updates on this app. That’s what you should concentrate on next. Making sure no one gets spam. Figure it out please. Or are you guys not smart enough or you just don’t care? So sad that this is still happening. So today I send a message an audio message and randomly some Spanish music plays in the audio. The weird thing is that I had no music playing in my car and my windows were up. The song just played and disappeared. How weird is that?
seadooxp20 - So convenient!
I really love the voice text feature. Being able to fast forward the message to the middle or the end is really helpful and saves me time. And you can also delete a message if you sent it before the persons opened it. That’s an amazing feature! Also what’s better about the WhatsApp is when you’re recording an audio message and someone calls in you don’t lose the entire message. When using my iPhone audio text messaging I lose the entire message if somebody calls in or if my battery is at a low percentage. So grateful to have WhatsApp on my phone. Thank U thank U thank U for creating it!
artemisja9 - Mostly a Great App
This app works great for the most part. I like the feel of using iMessage with my friends who don’t own iPhones.
My biggest issue right now is that, since the last update, the message input bar will appear in the middle of the screen, sometimes covering the most recent messages with empty space or my keyboard and I can’t scroll down any farther.
I think this app would benefit from an option to not automatically save pictures, taken and sent from WhatsApp, to the camera roll. For the most part, if I take a picture specifically to send to someone and it’s not a picture I took outside of the app, it’s something not important enough to waste the space on my phone.
GAG Galan - Chat History Download
I never had an issue with my WhatsApp app but for the first time having a huge issue. I have deleted the app about 5 to 6 times and every time I do it I set everything up as normal but when says to restore it will go up to 99% then boots me out and I get a message sorry wasn’t able to restore your chat history and to delete it the app and re install it. I can get as far viewing my chats I can be in the middle of writing to someone and I will get booted out. When I go back in my WhatsApp I get a message to restore my chat history and this will go in circles can someone help me solve my problem.
Finroy02 - Can no longer listen to audio outside of App
With the latest iPhone update I can no longer click out of WhatsApp and hear the audios continue to play. It cuts them. This was a huge perk that everyone I knew as well as myself raved over as it allowed multi tasking while on phone. Another thing WhatsApp has never had and sorely lacks is that there is no option or ability (as there is on every other app and other messaging software or app such as Skype), to be offline or invisible. For those of us with many chats and many friends on WhatsApp there’s no ability to be invisible while on and anyone may say you and contact. Yes you can turn last seen off but you will still show as online when checking messages. This is my largest complaint about the app from a many year user.
Papi maste - Needs to keep up with technology
I love WhatsApp and all it’s functions. It is one of the apps I use the most but one thing that really bum me out is the fact that they haven’t innovated or maintained up to date with technology. The two things that will make this app my favorite is a way to make polls in group chats. Imagine being able to know who is going to the event by just clicking “Assisting” or “Not going”. Imagine being able to decide which photo to upload to Instagram by just letting people choose the one they prefer or even tell you which shoes to buy. The other thing that would improve the app would be Apple Watch compatibility. Being able to tell Siri to send a message right from your wrist or even respond whenever you want and not just when they send a message to you.
Lilimpet - Very basic feature missing
It’s nearly impossible to connect on video chat on this app because there is NO SOUND OR NOTIFICATION when someone is calling. I’ve checked with my family and they have experienced the same. I could be sitting right next to my phone and have no idea someone is trying to call me, because it just sits silent and dark. The only time I can tell someone is calling is if I am already in the app and on a call. I’ve looked in all the settings, and there is only an option to add, remove or change sounds for messages, not for calls. When someone is calling me on voice or video, I expect my phone to ring. Please add this or fix whatever bug seems to be disabling any sounds or notifications for calls.
❤️🌺🌹miimii😘😍😁 - Picture and video quality—my only issue.
WhatsApp rocks!!! But kindly, please update the app so that for when someone uploads/shares a high quality (HD or 4K) picture or video on their status, it doesn’t come up low quality—ruining the picture/video one is trying to share. I personally spent $1200 on an iPhone 11 Pro Max just to be able to share with my friends the amazing pictures I am taking, but unfortunately WhatsApp is letting me down on that. I am always up to date with the latest version for both WhatsApp and Apple, so I don’t think it has to do with any of that. Kindly, please consider to allow high quality or 4K picture/video sharing for your future update. Thank you!!
jayyyyy345 - WhatsApp forever

EDC Edgar - Only 4 stars?...
You may as well have already taken millions of steps, almost moving around the world without knowing, but what if you knew?! Sweatcoin does it; and with its many motivational benefits, and intriguing interface, I’ve found myself loving it right off the bat, and also began setting personal goals to reach a certain amount of steps per day. Sweatcoin is pushing forward a healthy and rewarding mentality, and even if I don’t bother to use my coins, simply volunteering or donating to its highlighted charity projects is brilliant. I believe the app has more to offer and am very excited to know, and move more! There’s nothing to not like, but yet I leave the final star for the creators and future additions to the app!!
iThinkthat... - Best app ever made
This is hands down the best app they have ever come up with. The level of mobility and peace this app has given me has been life changing. You can go to a new city and just from there find anything you need and how to get there-there’s no struggle at all. It’s really simple and easy. Also I’ve never gotten lost using this app.
The best part is you can save places you’d like to visit and then later on, click them and find your way. So it’s great for travel on vacation. I highly, highly recommend this app- it will help you discover new ways of getting places and new places. It’s very safe and great for teens as well. 5 stars
Kakape - Great, improved App
This app is great especially the calling part of it.
It has revolutionized the app calling as a new way of reaching friends without a hassle as is the case with other app calling types.
Many at times when I get call from friends on other apps & we seem to be having connection problems even with full wifi, they would ask, "don't u have what's app? Why not use that! It's clearer & no interruptions".
I want to suggest that the developers should put in a feature that will allow administrators to delete messages and videos from reaching all persons that are considered unacceptable.
Thanks & continue to improve.
ABIR0310 - Problem regarding after finding a contact if tap call automatically goes on
I have no complain regarding the app.
It is one of the best app in the world.
One thing I should mention that after searching a new number in the contacts if you just tap on any part of the contact it directly goes for call. I think sometimes it’s embarrassing that may be you are not sure that the saved number is actually to whom you want to call. So I think I its like normal contacts app that after tapping we will be able to see the number then after confirmation we cam proceed with the final call.
Lailailailailaiiklaj - Good app
Hello creators. WhatsApp is an amazing app. I’ve had it for a couple years now, and I’ve had a lot of fun with it. Ever since I downloaded this app, I’ve been texting and calling like crazy 😂. You are able to change the contacts name. I like that you can make a group chat with maximum 256 contacts. It’s amazing. But one thing: you know when a contact puts a new status, because of the blue dot that appears in the corner, but I think that there should be a notification like when you receive a message, this way you can know even if you have your phone off. Thank you! Other than that, this app is amazing.
Gent111 - Amazing app, missing only one small thing...
I have been using this app for quiet some time now. I use it to talk to my friends, family, basically with a lot of people. One thing that I don’t like is that when someone is typing it isn’t shown at the bottom of the text but at the top (where the profile picture and name is) and it is very irritating to have to raise your eyes up tu see if someone is typing or not and it would be very helpful if they could put the typing thing at the bottom like how most of the apps have it. In general this app is amazing and really simple to use, and I will continue to use it.
cmhawke - Fix exports, poor customer service
Please add image captions (text accompanying a sent image message) to chat exports. I’ve reported this issue many times and it never seems to go anywhere.
Like many others have said, there are many issues with customer support. The first response to any query is automated and says to check the FAQs and reply if still not answered. The second response, if any, is unrelated to the query, and therefore as useless as the first response. The third response is nonexistent; WhatsApp support never sends more than one response after the automated message. It follows that you will never get an answer to your query nor any indication that your feedback or bug report will be forwarded to the appropriate team. In conclusion, WhatsApp customer support is completely useless and is just an extra cost for WhatsApp and hindering its development. Needs a major overhaul.

AGV GAMER - Owo what’s this
Fcfrgrfardhdtsfsgtjdgrvdb tree vdgetsfsfafsffswd was the last Yoshi was the last time we were going to play it for a little while but it is a good time game to watch each game and play with the kids and you can play it for a little time or play it for a little while but it is fun to get free game and you play the play time and you can play the game play it for a little w I have a little while but I’m not sure if I’m going to get a little bit I’m going back and I’m e the last two days of a time to get done and I have to get it done and I have to get it done and I have to get it done creeper aww so we are back in mine
Sz_7 - A few suggestions
- Can you please remove "Tap here for contact info" line that appears below the contact name/number? It just delays the online status of the contact. Removing it will let us check online status of contacts faster.
- Adding a symbol beside/on the profile picture of the contact to indicate they are currently online (like that green circle in Facebook Messenger) is definitely worth adding.
- Instead of selecting a picture and then tapping "add" then select multiple pictures, why isn't there a multiple picture mode in the first place? A "select mode" available from the start once I decide to share media would make the process much more convenient.
kikitera - Wish my boyfriend would get an iPhone
My (super) long distance man and I use this every day as our normal text/call/“facetime” app. We use the video and audio call functions quite often, but I’ve found that the audio is not very good. Background noises are extremely loud (sheets rubbing against the phone, outside rain or sirens, sounds of doors opening/closing, etc.), while the voice of the person speaking is many times intelligible. When the call is “reconnecting”, we are always forced to hang up, as the beeping sound is completely unbearable. It does it’s job, and is a very useful app for people without iPhones or people from different countries. Just wish the audio quality was nicer and the beeping would be at least slightly less obnoxious.

@virginmedia why is it when I do FaceTime or WhatsApp messenger to someone also on Virgin network it doesn’t allow me to? And I have to go to my 4G. That seems ridiculous!
