I absolutely loathe this app. If it weren't for the fact that a group I belong to uses it for communication I would uninstall. Seemed to be no way to install without making it the default messging app, although I somehow got around that. It imported my contacts without permission. It wanted my phone number to send me a verification code, but then it skipped over the input screen. Real secure. And it makes noise when it notifies me even though I have tried to turn that off every way I could.
This is very helpful app and very good👍 This is very friendly and very easy to use. But i would like to give a suggestion that i think is important and will be helpful for the users around the globe. After the latest update I am having problem while viewing videos. Every time when the video plays in the status it fails to load and loads status of the next person. People dp takes long time to load. My suggestion would be to have an option to disable automatic downloads. Thevapp is very great...
It's a very good app, but it lacks a fundamental feature (specially now that it is being used for work) and that is: being able to create folders/tabs to sort charts. I'd be really happy and less stressed if I could have all my work-related chats and groups on one tab and another one for my family and/or friends, etc.
4/2/22Really dumb that I can't start new threads. I can respond to new messages, but can't send messages until someone else sends the 1st message. 3/6/23 ^^Still an issue. Notifications are totally random. Allowed background access. Have to obsessively check messages since i don't get notifications most of the time. Sometimes they come in immediately, other times an hour, and everything in between. These app developers are getting lazy.
Good overall, but please fix the following, if sound is muted or vibrate mode is on, whatsapp video status still reproduce with sound. SOMETIMES when a status is a video with sound and i open it, then close it before it ends, i can still hear the sound in background, even if app is minimized. I recall this didn't happen. I have a samsung galaxy s9+. Thanks.
I have used this app for 5 years. Until just last week, connection was fine for phone calls. Now it won't stay connected for more than an hr. Sometimes only a few min. I also had to search for the latest update. Even with that, it still drops calls randomly. It is not a wifi or service provider issue. And now i find out that it may not support my galaxy A11 shortly... this phone is only two years old!!!!
Best messaging app. Would recommend it to anyone, unless you don’t want strangers messaging you. But then again, no worries because you can block (and delete) strange numbers. Just found out that I can’t send videos longer than 3 minutes. If that is true and remains that way, it'll be the only thing I hate!
This app is good for sending messages, everyone knows that it is easy to send, it joins quickly, that's why I like this app, can you give me another suggestion, that we need an option to edit it. that is, we typed a message by mistake and sent it. but we didn't like delete it, but there will be to edit the message. so we need edit mode an sent message.
Overall is all great because I can communicate with many people with less data but the fact that my images and videos are being compressed and that makes the quality to appear low bothers me, a lot mind you. Even when I choose best quality on the setting, it doesn't change anything really. It would be best to make an option for people who want to save data and the one for those who prefer better quality than loss of data.
Perfect for those that are trying to find an application that can permit them to communicate with their loved ones conveniently as well as independently. The app is very reliable as well as simple to use, and it can be utilized on both mobile and also desktop systems. In general, this is an exceptional app that must be considered by any person seeking a dependable and also private messaging solution.
App is all good..but the new update has a changing in places of options when you have to reply someone from the notification panel you find "mute" option in place of "reply" and the "reply" is on left side.. and we don't mute a chat repeatedly from notification panel So, I think this option is just a distraction in our app user interface. And also we have to use our left hand to touch the reply button otherwise app is good.. I always find great updates..
The computer version is terrible. It takes several minutes to launch and often freezes and crashes: many times each day. It takes more than 10 seconds for any conversation to load after you click on it. The changes made in late 2022 on replying, forwarding, etc are worse than what existed before. I hate it and only use it because sometimes I have to share documents on my laptop. The computer version was never good, but it's gotten worse.
wrong with the app! Im.not staying there for longer periods of time. I actually like the app. I wish I could delete the annoying people that once we had been in contact. I deleted it on my contacts, but I still see them on the app I can overseas, and I can also leave voice messages. About the app being incrypted?I wouldn't be using it for face to face or anything else. As I don't trust any app.Period, case is closed.And documents are sent via email. I ❤ the app, and I recommend.😊
This new update is great but too many flaws, once my data or phone is turned off, during that period all status updates uploaded will not reflect on my phone even when it is switched on likewise the views on my status, it doesn't reflect. Usually, it only happens when you've not been online for weeks, now it takes just few hours of inactivity. I can't be turning on my data all 24hours, please fix it. Also this emoji "🥺", bring back the previous one. It is my favorite! 🥺 I need it cute.
I love the app. It's mostly efficient and easy to use. I just have a problem with when you send multiple pictures and some reflect as unsent when they are or don't send at all until days later. My suggestion would be to have an option to disable automatic downloads for specific groups and not across all chats. Another suggestion would be to allow audio files to be sent on the status. That feature used to be there in 2016-2017, don't know why it was taken off. All in all, the app is great.
Unfortunately, good things don't last forever, especially apps. This used to be great. Now it's mediocre. I used to have to update my picture profile when I entered a new device or after a certain period of time. It was annoying but minor. Now it's hassling me about permission with confusing instructions. Yeah, they need competition to either make them keep up or drown them out so we can keep them or move on. For now, I guess I'll have a picture less profile.
I don't use this app for anything fancy, just to text with a friend who occasionally goes overseas so we can use wi-fi and not entail international text charges. It may be specific to my device, but when I use the "Export" feature (choosing to save without media), half the time it opens Google Drive instead of the file manager I always select. Then I have to exit out of Drive and wade through the whole menu thing again.
I would not recommend WhatsApp to be used for businesses. However it is very helpful for individual usage. It delivers quick, timely, functional, and consistent communication between any two individuals over half decent Wi-Fi. It has its kinks to it, like kicking you off once you start running low on storage, or automatically downloading the photos of friends when you forgot to unselect that option. But over all it is a great program to use!
Messages stop being sent when there are too many media files in the storage. Internal storage is easily filled, including duplicates when fwd’d, with viewed/sent stickers/media, which jeopardizes the function of the device; even with auto-download disabled, the downloaded media/stickers should be stored only *temporarily* unless marked as permanent. One cannot set a time for the automatic backup, and the app/device is blocked for other use then. Good that you finally added a changelog, though.
