What is New? Why You Have to Update Your WhatsApp.

WhatsApp is a Simple. Secure. Reliable messaging App. 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.

With WhatsApp, you’ll get fast, simple, secure messaging and calling for free*, available on phones all over the world be it Java, Simbia, Blackberry, Android and the likes.

WhatsApp Calling Speak Freely

Talk to your friends and family for free*, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp Calling uses your phone’s Internet connection, instead of your cell plan’s voice minutes, so you don’t have to worry about expensive calling charges.
