How to use WhatsApp for Android

Send text, photos, video, and more, using WhatsApp!

Anyone ever tell you you're one in a million? Wanna be one in a BILLION? Yeah, "whoa" is right. WhatsApp has 1 billion users, and it's not hard to see why.

You can send text messages, photos, videos, contacts, and locations, make calls, receive calls, and manage messages like a boss, for free. Yeah, free. No per minute rate for calling internationally, or premium per text message sent or text message received. It's all free. All you need is an internet connection and an existing phone number and away you go!

It's not just sending messages and making calls that make WhatsApp a great alternative to your stock messaging app; you can manage all of your messages right in the app. You can star messages to look at later, double-check the statuses of messages you've sent, and much more.

WhatsApp seamlessly blends multimedia messaging to give you an easy-to-use platform wherein you create an account and you're off. Invite friends to join, and you can easily create group chats. If you've got friends that already use WhatsApp, it'll find them for you to make integration a breeze.

Need a hand getting started? We've created a handy guide to introduce you to the world of WhatsApp, and we literally mean world.
