WhatsApp Messenger App User Reviews & Comments

OOPS! SorryI 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..Version: 2.18.21

From Bad to WorseWhat was once a wonderful secure platform is fast becoming a laughingstock ever since it was touched by Facebook. So thoroughly disappointed. Relatives abroad had told me that Facebook is phasing out WhatsApp but demands that we give them all our contact details; I’m not for that. Apparently, In the UK, WhatsApp was given customers until the first week of February before they close an account if the customer refused to except terms to the detriment of customer privacy. Now there is a delay to this change? It’s still going to happen so why the delay? Could it be that this delay is to collect our information anyway without a permission, anyway? I have now started looking for a replacement to WhatsApp. I am sorry to be parting company with you but it isn’t the secure independent platform it once was and the quality has progressively deteriorated. To be honest, if I could opt for zero stars that would be the level at this point. I’ve been trying to speak to others over the platform but I’ve spent more time trying to reconnect or redial and it’s just not worth it. Another competitor bows out..Version: 2.21.20

Too easy to call people by accidentThe 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!.Version: 2.18.41

Just a minor issue that’s really problematicSometimes 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..Version: 2.19.51

Broken: Will change rating after bugfixHello, I can’t get into whatsapp at all. It crashes after a second of opening. Recovery functionality also breaks after a second, so I am afraid to uninstall the app in case my data isnt recovered. I love whatsapp. But currently it is completely unusable, even after closing the app, turning my phone off and on, and installing the latest update. i didnt see a way to report bugs in the Help center, so this is the only place i know i can let whatsapp know whats going on. Please fix soon and I will change the rating! Update: Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately, the error was not resolved, so i uninstalled and reinstalled whatsapp to fix my issue. Since i didnt enable backups, i lost everything. Have started again from scratch. I will continue to use whatsapp since it is the best free international communication app i have used. However, i really hope the underlying bug gets fixed, as i lost everything..Version: 2.21.181

Bad chat backup systemI’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.Version: 2.19.51

Status features up datesI 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.Version: 2.18.111

Needs 1 changeI 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?.Version: 2.18.100

Privacy concernWhatsApp 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..Version: 2.20.70

Stickers, media, links, doc & roll adjustmentsI’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..Version: 2.20.131

Unexpectedly Easy, Love the EncrytionMy 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..Version: 2.18.93

Great app but could use improvementI 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..Version: 2.17.71

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😊.Version: 2.18.111

They don’t value YOUR privacy.Whatsapp new private policy is basically sharing all your info to facebook, it wouldn’t be shocking that they were doing it all along without telling us. Money hungry corporations want to sell our information and not value our privacy. That’s why Telegram and Signal has received record numbers of new daily users, we’re all witnessing the death of Whatsapp and the birth of a new messaging app that actually values our privacy. Since Facebook has bought Whatsapp, Whatsapp has been a app of full controversy but also a app that is lagging behind new innovation, WiFi Calls are laggy even though your WIFI is strong, and fiber internet. Even though your on a 5G+ Coverage and Whatsapp WiFi calling still lags and disconnects. Whatsapp needs new updates and new innovation and improve their service and most importantly improve their “encrypted” connection and if they care, our privacy. They won’t do any of it, just move to Telegram or Signal, and these apps are GREAT..Version: 2.21.10

Houston TexasAs 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..Version: 2.18.111

Very very goodI 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.Version: 2.17.52

Notification Preview UpdateHello, 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..Version: 2.18.52

Traveling AbroadOur 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!.Version: 2.19.70

Horrible design flawWhatsApp 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..Version: 2.18.90

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!.Version: 2.18.101

Freedom of speechFreedom of speech is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or a community to articulate their opinions and ideas without fear of retaliation, censorship, or legal sanction. The term "freedom of expression" is sometimes used synonymously but includes any act of seeking, receiving, and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. Freedom of expression is recognized as a human right under article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Article 19 of the UDHR states that "everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference" and "everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice"..Version: 2.21.11

Whatsapp is always improving and getting betterWhatsapp 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. Thanks.Version: 2.18.81

WhatsApps 1 problemWhatsApp 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!.Version: 2.19.61

Plenty of room for improvementAs 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..Version: 2.17.61

ComplainingPLEASE READ I NEED TO KNOW IF THOS IS JUST ON MY PHONE..... So I really love the app, there’s nothing really wrong with it except that, well, idk if it’s just a bug in my phone or if it was the recent update... but when I enter the app it takes a looong time to actually be able to enter the app. Let me explain... when I enter the it’s just few miliseconds till the app randomly kicks me out, and the worst part is that it’s not only once, at least TEN TIMES till I can actually use this app. Sometimes I even have to turn off my phone just to send a message. Since I’m from another country I don’t use the message app, so WhatsApp is the only way to fast communicate with someone. Some people I know also have the same problem so I don’t think it’s just my phone. Please let me know if this is a bug on my phone or it was a problem with the update..Version: 2.21.31

Awful customer service!!There is an issue with wall waiting when on a whastapp call and you get a regular carrier call you dont get a hold&accept option. But when you are on a regular call and get a whastapp call you do. I sent this bug info and they keep sending me to reset my wifi settings, i have done it plenty of times, even reset my iphone, uninstalled whastapp.. i went to my phone manufacturer which is apple and they in the other hand went thru step by step to find the issue… and they said that it has to do with the app.. i went back to whatsapp and they are just completely ignoring.. wont even help or not even try to check what the issue is, they just send automated msgs/emails. I understand this app is free but we are consumers and if there is an issue with ur app try to fix it for everyone to enjoy using it. Its very frustrating and inconvenient having to hang up ur whastapp call to answer ur regular call instead of placing them on hold..Version: 2.21.160

Awesome!!!I’m overwhelmed to be able to connect to the people that mean the most to me. I had a big lost with 5 family members 2 friends and my dog. Was so lost and alone. A wonderful young man and his brother that worked with my brother in law stopped by to check on me. Then found out my husband passed too. They came to see if I was ok. Well they jumped in and did so much for me. They went to Mexico for their mother’s birthday. They invited me but I wasn’t well enough. So we can communicate and I get checked up on. They have become my family. They would be here ASAP if I needed them. Thank god we are able to keep in touch. I can’t wait to see them as well as keep in touch with their family. I’d be lost without them. I’m grateful to be able to have your service. Thank You, Paulette.Version: 2.21.140

I have a huge problem with this appOk whatsapp why are so you put exit when you have no space literally what if yo have no service I literally had no service and then your like oh no space exit what if someone has a problem and needs my help then I fixed that problem and deleted photos but then I noticed when I clicked on camera or mic it says to go to setting to enable it and I never unable it and then it takes me to the setting where it says WhatsApp and it says nothing to enable a camera I search it up and it says to go to some photo thing so I can turn it on WhatsApp the photos and mic and it shows nothing all it shows is apps that have requested to access to you will appear hear please fix this I did nothing to WhatsApp I like it but this is frustrating.Version: 2.17.82

Still not syncing contacts since iOS update months agoWhen 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!.Version: 2.18.102

IncredibleI 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..Version: 2.17.80

Wonderful app! please add one simple featureI 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..Version: 2.20.51

Making it BetterI love the app been using it since they debut and dominating the cross platform messaging that de-throne the blackberry messenger and the blackberry phone across the Americans now a few added features that a lot of people would gladly say yes to is [1] Adding more pin chats instead of just 3 pins let’s have 5-10 pins I believe that would be a fair number of chats to add to the top. [2] Implement a pinned topic or have a topic option in groups. It’s so annoying to be changing the name of the group to the topic when you could open the group and the topic is pinned at the top let the admin have the option of turning it on or off. Just emailing the group name is changed to the topic and you wondering who added you to a group you don’t want to be in. Other than that I love the app 5 stars hope the developer take these into consideration..Version: 2.21.90

UpdateI 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 !.Version: 2.19.42

WhatsApp- A Great End to End Encryption PlatformI 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. Thank you.Version: 2.20.50

Great, but missing one key componentI 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!.Version: 2.19.124

Camera takes fuzzy photos every timeWhatsApp 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..Version: 2.17.52

App got worse after no choice then having to updateWhat happened to what’s app after the update. It got worse. What about being able to delete what you sent on both sides nit just from my chat, it used to not any more! You said there were improvements? Not at all! Improvements doesn’t mean to take away what worked well for many. improvements is enhancing adding not removing what works. What a disappointment this app fell short! Many feel the same! Security? That probably won’t be secure either anymore! Let’s see what will happen going forward with all the breaches and the unsecured and less encryption . I can go on and on.

App not allowing chats with new numbersI 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..Version: 2.19.112

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..Version: 2.19.51

Text font options and dark mode and other fixesGreat 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. 😝.Version: 2.19.121

Lost everything after restoreI had to restore my iPhone for unrelated issues to wattsapp. When I restored with the Apple support on the line at the time everything looked OK then when I try to get back to WhatsApp I reloaded the chat that was being saved monthly and it went back to a chat three months ago so I’ve lost a lot of important stuff that was happening recently the chats groups that I was connected to have now disappeared and I have to try and figure out how to get back to them . the system complains about connectivity so I don’t know if it’s a connectivity issue and I have no information from the support what good is a vital form of communication when I can’t get it up and running I feel right now I’m letting people down in some of my groups where I was an important member I’m rather disappointed.Version: 2.21.41

I keep getting kicked out.I didn’t doTouch the stars above so if says if it says five that was already there.I love the service up until now I’m not sure what’s going on. What time I click on WhatsApp it just disappears. I came to the App Store to see if I need an update but it just says open and when I click on it is gone!Poof!. I wonder if I was being canceled like Facebook,Twitter and other social media companies cancel people who disagree with. Their view point. It happened for a while until one time I was able to get on there and write a message to let a family know what was going on and then it happened again.I surely hope that what’s up I have not joined the other social media companies who are the side to control free speech..Version: 2.21.11

My WhatsApp issues.I’ve got a lot of problems with my WhatsApp app. First of all why every time i add stories then when I went back and deleted em other people still can see em? Today’s been 3 years since I started using WhatsApp but it still the same why i have to update my WhatsApp app every once in a while? And the main thing I noticed is even when I blocked someone i can read their stories and the can read mine as well sometimes i got very upset and one thing i also noticed is when I’m talking to someone on WhatsApp my background always looks black or blank and it won’t let me do nothing. Please guys do something with this app that will makes everyone happy. I use WhatsApp more than any other apps out here please fix these issues for me. Thank you 🙏🏾.Version: 2.21.131

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!.Version: 2.20.121

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!.Version: 2.18.101

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.Version: 2.18.111

It’s a good app but here is how it can be IMPROVEDWhatsApp 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..Version: 2.17.82

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.Version: 2.20.71

Starting to hate thisHey 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..Version: 2.19.61

Not opening a chatSo 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.❤️.Version: 2.20.81

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..Version: 2.20.121

Worst Support of any applicationI have emailed to support that in iphone i am getting two different ringtone like for voice call and for video call i am getting two different ringtone and there is no option to change them because video call tone is so scary which i never set and I can’t change it even though i change my ringtone in settings but still it is not changing. When I emailed the support they told me to change message tone 😤 they didn’t even listen to my problem even i have emailed them back and they told we already have gave you solution please refer to it. How come this big messengers company lack in support for user Very disappointed 😔.Version: 2.21.160

Enable Poll Function and Deletable Unread MessageThank 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?.Version: 2.18.111

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, Isabeau (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.).Version: 2.19.22

Add a ‘like’ button, give option of prioritising some notifications over othersIt would be really great if you could use an emoji /thumbs up etc symbol to agree to someone. Instead, if you’re in a big group, you get every tiny boring notification just because someone needed to show they agreed with something, when you could have had just something like a ‘like’ button. The consonant notifications in group chats are very annoying. I know you can mute, but you never know if something is important or not until you’ve read it. If you made a like button and then an option to mute notifications for reactions (likes, dislikes etc), it would make this app a lot better, thank you..Version: 2.21.141

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! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.Version: 2.19.100

Save your excusesYou have some nerve saying people have a lot of confusion about the new privacy policy. No one is confused. We are downright outrageous. So much for promising to keep WhatsApp walled off from rest of Facebook. They made it seem like nothing’s changing now only because data sharing with Facebook had already begun in the policy update in 2016, only then there wasn’t a momentum for switching away from big tech. No point in sticking with you when Signal keeps messages encrypted PLUS no metadata logs, let alone sharing. There’s still a massive user base now on WhatsApp but won’t be long, at least not for privacy conscious users. After all the same founder of WhatsApp made Signal too. Facebook ruins everything it touches. Learn the lessons.Version: 2.21.11

When used for good and not evil is a great communication toolThe old saying ‘it takes two to tango’ sums up my stance regarding using this app.. although it may be used slightly out of context, my experience has highlighted that the messaging/responses/and sometimes forwarded conversations or even altered images really can’t beat a face to face conversation (IRL or video chat if you must). Dealing with another 3 or 4 understudy’s in the wings, idling the shadows (like a peeping Tom, Mark or {insert name here} highlights both the good and bad points of some of the security features in place within Whatsapp. Suppose that’s what I signed up somehow in the fine print of terms and conditions. 🤫🤓🤪.Version: 2.21.181

Auto Chat Backup Not Working1. 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..Version: 2.19.10

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!.Version: 2.20.11

Desktop to phone syncPlease 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.Version: 2.17.71

Vert6 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?” 😪 Regards: Trev.Version: 2.18.81

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..Version: 2.18.102

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..Version: 2.19.61

Saved at Ben GurionA 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! Thank you.Version: 2.18.100

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-.Version: 2.20.81

Great appI’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!.Version: 2.19.80

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.Version: 2.19.21

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!.Version: 2.19.80

Willem ConradieI 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..Version: 2.19.31

Unread messages within chatsThis app is good and all the improvements have made it better over the years. Can you make a provision for keeping unread messages within chats unread? Currently what happens is that if I open a chat all the messages become read yet sometimes I may want to read upto a certain point and continue from there later. This kind of feature is available in Telegram. Best regards.Version: 2.21.101

Additional feature?Hi developers! WhatsApp is super useful, it’s my go-to messaging platform. I use it almost daily, and have rarely ever had problems with it. Clean, simple, easy to use, aesthetically pleasing interface, WhatsApp is great in a lot of ways. One of my issues with WhatsApp, however great it may be, is that the features regarding image sending and editing is extremely simple. I understand that you don’t want to make it too complicated, it is a messaging platform and not an art platform after all. However, I’ve noticed that when trying to mark up images and draw on them I’ll often have a particular colour that I used that I want to reuse, but there is no tool to grab a colour and use it again, and this has been quite frustrating. I’m not saying that you should incorporate extravagant colour pickers or a way to save old colours, that’s unnecessary. I just think it would be extremely beneficial to include a button (perhaps an eye dropper) below the colours that you can use to pick colours from an image or previous lines to match. I’d really appreciate your consideration, as I think it would be very useful. :) Thanks.Version: 2.21.90

Another way to steal the informationI 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.Version: 2.19.51

Big bugsYooo….Whats happening with WhatsApp on iPhone…Specifically when you end the voice call but it still stay on top of the screen, even though you cant make a call until you close WhatsApp and turn it on..Sometime when your using fb and WhatsApp noti come and you open it…... You know what there in between my chats???????????????? Nothing bcz i cant see anything the screen is whole black…..Then turn WhatsApp off ::::On again……Even when sometime it ask you 2SVCode when you swap from another to WhatsApp the keyboard never appears……..If it was bug in my phone then it would be with other apps too… but this time its just WhatsApp….Version: 2.21.200

Major data risk based on poor design!I have been a user for only a few months and I have seen a MAJOR FLAW where users often reply to the wrong chat group!! Messages which are business related are going to the wrong recipients! I spoke to a few users who confirm it’s happening to them and their business associates too!! So, what is broken? When a user receives a message notification which they often read within their device notifications and then instead of accessing the notification directly they open the app. This action loads their most recent chat group. Users unsuspectingly type the reply in that active chat, not realising it’s not the chat based on their last notification. To fix it, simple! If the user has received one notification and the opens the app, even it it’s running in the background, open that chat group. If they receive notifications from more than one chat group, then open the list of chats to allow the user to select the correct one. Not rocket science is it!.Version: 2.21.90

Great but needs more flexibilityCould you please add more mute settings?? A 24 hour and a 48 hour option would be amazing - 8 hrs to a week is a bit too far of a jump, and not really practical. For example, 48 hours would allow me to mute my work conversation on my days off, allowing me to separate more for my mental health. Right now, my options are mute for a week and risk forgetting to unmute it in time for my next shift, or having to repeatedly mute for 8 hours over my days off if I want some separation, becoming more stressed every time I do - it’s one extreme or the other. Please, some more options would be wonderful. Thank you..Version: 2.21.170

Update has caused a horrible experienceI am always using whatsapp for chats and calls on a daily basis. The new update has caused a lot of issues. 1. Calls sometimes get cut off for absolutely no reason. 2. Pictures will not show up properly if you send them at the same time as you are on a video call with someone 3. The type box will sometimes disappear and you have to scroll down for it to reappear. 4. The screen will disappear just like when you are on a call and it goes black when your ear is on the screen but it happens in all instances as long as the app is open. I could just have the app open and hover my hand over the speaker area and the screen goes black which is kind of annoying really when im not actually talking to someone. A few other minor things too but they are the main ones. I love Whatsapp and like I said, I use it several several times a day so I would appreciate if you could update it again with those issues fixed. Thanks.Version: 2.21.140

Great but room for improvementI 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!.Version: 2.17.82

Latest update malfunctionHi 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..Version: 2.20.61

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 😁.Version: 2.18.102

Need to be add very important featureHii, 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. Thanks.Version: 2.18.61

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..Version: 2.18.61

Missing 3D Touch FeaturesI 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..Version: 2.19.92

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....Version: 2.20.40

Love it but please add this featureI 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!.Version: 2.20.92

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.Version: 2.19.112

Standard helpful feature missing - please consider implementingWhatsapp is my go to for communicating with friends & family around the world. The most & only annoying thing is that once you open the app the unopened messages notification badge disappears so it is easy to miss unread messages (whether unopened or marked unread). All other apps keep the notification minus those messages you have dismissed. I would love for this to be improved by the development team as it decidedly makes the app less user friendly & less helpful..Version: 2.21.131

Change the default setting of automatically downloading all images into your photo album for on iOSThis feature has been one of the most annoying aspects of WhatsApp. Everytime you download WhatsApp on your device, you are always subject to the default settings when saving your data on your device One of this features is how by default WhatsApp will download any image or video shared in any conversation which you are apart of into your camera roll photo album. This results in images and video which I do not possess appearing into your camera roll. The reason why I don’t like this is because you are not in control of what people share and it doesn’t mean you want their content saved in your camera roll. It’s particularly annoying with GIFs or Memes which are not actually funny and rather offensive. I would like Facebook INC to change this feature to do not download all images and video from conversation as the default preference..Version: 2.21.81

Excellent app for communicationAll 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 ☺️☺️☺️.Version: 2.19.41

Keeps CRASHINGWhatsApp 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..Version: 2.20.31

Data sharing with face book without the option to turn offNot 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..Version: 2.19.11

I have a suggestionI'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.Version: 2.19.42

Need a bug fix iPhone XSApp works all good but have an issue when it comes to forwarding. More than one item be it text message, image or an audio cannot be forwarded. Only the first item selected is sent. Also, the text message being forwarded goes as a newly composed message and not a forwarded message. I use iPhone XS whilst this problem seems mostly associated with only this more I believe. Since iPhone XS Max forwarding is working fine. Please get the fix included in the update..Version: 2.21.41

Disable the call featureWould 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..Version: 2.17.82

CallsI 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..Version: 2.18.80

A solution to a common problem!Hi there, 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,.Version: 2.20.102

Great for home and InternationalWorks 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..Version: 2.19.31

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 :)).Version: 2.17.52

It needs to have iPad cross platformI 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.Version: 2.20.121

Best AppI 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..Version: 2.18.111
