WhatsApp Messenger

2.17.82 for Android

The easiest and cheapest way to chat with your friends







WhatsApp Messenger is the most convenient way of quickly sending messages on your mobile phone to any contact or friend on your contacts list. The only requirement is that the other people must have the app installed on their own device.

Currently, WhatsApp is compatible with just about all mobile operating systems on the market: Android, iOS, Symbian and Windows Phone. So this basically means you’ll be able to use WhatsApp to communicate with any friend, regardless of what model of device they have.

WhatsApp users can send text messages, voice messages, links and images to any other user. Automatic image compression makes transferring files very easy (although there is obviously some quality loss).

One of the most interesting and most used tools on WhatsApp is the one that lets you easily create and manage groups. Any user can enter any group, as long as they’ve been invited by the group’s creator, and they can leave it whenever they want.

WhatsApp is the perfect communication tool for Android users because with it, you can forget about paying for text messages ever again. It’s also important to keep in mind that WhatsApp is fully compatible with WhatsApp PLUS (in so far as sending and receiving messages is concerned).

The addition of this feature seems to have been in the works for a while, but only now has the latest WhatsApp beta incorporated a two-step verification system as extra protection. Here we explain what it is and how to set it up.

How to record calls on WhatsApp

There are lots of ways to record what’s happening on your device screen together with the audio that’s playing alongside it, but most Android tools for that purpose require root, which not everybody can (or wants to) do. Luckily there’s an alternative that doesn’t require this procedure thanks to the Recordable app, which lets you capture everything happening on your screen and the incoming and outgoing audio for any app, including WhatsApp.
