WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for iPhone and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, and Voice Messages.


• NO FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family, so you don't have to pay for every message or call.* There are no subscription fees to use WhatsApp.

• MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, and Voice Messages.

• FREE CALLS: Call your friends and family for free with WhatsApp Calling, even if they're in another country.* WhatsApp calls use your phone's Internet connection rather than your cellular plan's voice minutes. (Note: Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details. Also, you can't access 911 and other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp).

• GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group chats with your contacts so you can easily stay in touch with your friends or family.

• WHATSAPP WEB: You can also send and receive WhatsApp messages right from your computer's browser.

• NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: There's no extra charge to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world and avoid international SMS charges.*

• SAY NO TO USERNAMES AND PINS: Why bother having to remember yet another username or PIN? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS, and integrates seamlessly with your phone's existing address book.

• ALWAYS LOGGED IN: With WhatsApp, you're always logged in so you don't miss messages. No more confusion about whether you're logged in or logged out.

• QUICKLY CONNECT WITH YOUR CONTACTS: Your address book is used to quickly and easily connect you with your contacts who have WhatsApp so there's no need to add hard-to-remember usernames.

• OFFLINE MESSAGES: Even if you miss your notifications or turn off your phone, WhatsApp will save your recent messages until the next time you use the app.

• AND MUCH MORE: Share your location, exchange contacts, set custom wallpapers and notification sounds, email chat history, broadcast messages to multiple contacts at once, and more!

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

We're always excited to hear from you! If you have feedback, questions, or concerns, please email us at:

The best

Best app ever if you have relatives outside of the US
Yeshua36 on 1/23/2018
It’s great it’s does everything I needed to do
Unknown56483373444464484644844 on 1/23/2018
Very satisfied, but sometimes when someone sends a message to me, it might take over an hour to receive it if I don’t actively use WhatsApp
Stop that stupid notification
electricflesh6 on 1/23/2018
It’s a great app with good privacy and I like how you can change the chat background (maybe changing the color of the bubbles would be cool too?) but there’s one problem: this stupid notification that keeps popping up! It says something along the lines of “if you close WhatsApp you might not be able to receive messages” I understand that I don’t care if I did I would have done something the first time not the 30th time! It’s also very deceptive as I think I’m getting an actual message. Please get rid of this it’s not helping anyone the 50th time it pops up. Edit: yes that notification is still there and the weird part is I get my notifications just fine!
Custom backgrounds
Katkatlauren on 1/23/2018
I just started using WhatsApp yesterday and so far so good! Works like my other chat apps so far and pretty user friendly and easy to navigate. My one request would be if in a future version, you could allow us to select a custom background for each contact, like how we are able to in WeChat? I am usually chatting with multiple people at once, bouncing back and forth between chats. The custom background is very helpful for me to see who I’m chatting with instantly at a glance! This way I can avoid ooops situations of chatting the wrong person which has happened to me numerous times since I’m chatting multiple people all at once. Otherwise so far this app is good 👍 Thanks!

Best messaging app but...
Tijead on 1/23/2018
... the scheduling of the sending of a message is a feature I miss a lot!!! Would it be possible to add it? Also, can we invite people to use WhatsApp by sending them a txt message from the WhatsApp app?

I have the iPhone X and I opened my WhatsApp today and it looks weird! It has two thick indentations on the sides that makes the text look smaller and it doesn’t occupy the those screen like it should. Please fix it immediately!

Need Iwatch options
Saveras on 1/22/2018
I’d be willing to pay for an Iwatch option. They do create updates often, but keep skipping the Iwatch.

Aad1- on 1/22/2018
I use WhatsApp everyday but I am a little disappointed as you don’t provide an Apple Watch app. The experience I get using a WhatsApp app on Apple watch would be more greater. Please make an Apple watch app. Thank you

PlayAll for voice message

WhatsApp should add play all feature for voice messages the same feature in iMessage so it would be easier to whatsApp lovers to listen to a lot of voice messages at one click
