Free Phone & Text on Android
WhatsApp is an iPhone and Android messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS.
In addition to basic messaging WhatsApp users can create groups, send each other unlimited images, video and audio media messages.
You can use WhatsApp on your web browser too. WhatsApp Web is simply an extension of your phone: the web browser mirrors conversations and messages from your mobile device -- this means all of your messages still live on your phone.
To connect your web browser to your WhatsApp client, simply open https://web.whatsapp.com in your browser. You will see a QR code --- scan the code inside of WhatsApp, and you’re ready to go. You have now paired WhatsApp on your phone with the WhatsApp web client. Your phone needs to stay connected to the internet for our web client to work, and please make sure to install the latest version of WhatsApp on your phone.
