Overview

Take texting to the next level with WhatsApp. Built to connect via the internet and free of charge to users, WhatsApp gives you the ability to send recordings via text, call your contacts without using minutes, and to connect to business customers for feedback.

WhatsApp has become one of the most popular connection apps in the App Store by offering free calling around the world. If you have friends and relatives in other countries, it is by far the most affordable way to communicate with them. Many businesses use it to connect with remote workers and you can integrate it with a Wordpress site.

WhatsApp is available for Android, iPhone, Mac or Windows PC. It’s simple, secure, and free to download. There is a personal version available and also a WhatsApp Business App with additional features that’s designed for small businesses. Learn more at WhatsApp.com.
