WhatsApp has been the most loved instant messaging app which was launched in 2010 in the month of January. Initially, the developers had decided to charge $1 after using the app for a year, which was soon rendered free for lifetime usage owing to the popularity of the app. Whatsapp Messenger is one of the top most downloaded apps on Google Play Store. Though the app has a lot of great features, it has recently come up with the Whatsapp video calling feature which has been appreciated by its users.

Exciting Features of WhatsApp Messenger:
It’s a crime to pay charges for your messages now! Use WhatsApp and send across your messages, photos, videos, documents and much more for absolutely nothing at all. This is possible since the application uses the internet to send the data. Now enjoy messaging to a group of people. WhatsApp allows you to make separate groups for your friends, family, or co-workers. There can be a maximum of 256 members in a group, which means you can send messages, voice messages, and videos to 256 people at the same time! The group notifications can be customized; you can also give a name to the group or put it on mute.
Voice and Video Calls:
From text messages to voice calls, to video calls, you will get all of it here in the application. When texting is not enough, use the voice call feature to send voice messages to your loved ones, even if they are in another country. Both voice calls and video calls use internet connection like the text messages, so you do not have to worry about the high calling rates.
Enjoy WhatsApp on Desktop:
If the small screen of your phone is not enough, enjoy WhatsApp on the web or on your desktop. You can simply download the desktop app or check web.whatsapp.com to seamlessly sync your mobile phone to your desktop and use according to your preference.
The latest development in the application is the end-to-end encryption of the messages which provides seamless security to the data sent or received. This ensures that the messages can be read only by the sender or the receiver and by nobody else in between, not even the WhatsApp!
Sharing Made Easy:
With the advent of WhatsApp, it’s not just the SMS that has seen an all time lull but the very traditional e-mail has also taken a backseat. WhatsApp can be used to send data that is up to 100 MB! This means apart from the text, photos or videos, one can also share documents in the form of spreadsheets, PDFs, slide shows very conveniently and free of cost.
There are no prizes for guessing that the interesting and catchy name of the application has been inspired by the popular phrase, ‘What’s up?’
