i have read that now you have just one year for free and then you have to pay like a dollar, i know it's not much but i wanted to be sure if this is for real... the app works fine i think there wouldn't be a problem in paying but i wanted to know.. if it has been free all this time... should stay like that :D

As of last month, is Whatsapp is now free FOREVER. It used to be free for the first month and then $1 each consecutive year.

Whatsapp does not have a web client, do not be mislead by the seeming web utility mentioned at

The app acannot be used by a computer without android or some other phone OS.


I'm sure you were right 3 years ago, but things have changed, making this comment is misleading.

Sandwich, he is still right till now. If you try to use Whatsapp web without enabling data or wifi on your phone will not work.

What about Dasher?

Then you have to pay ~1$ a year.
It's not much. I'm ok to pay for softwares I like.
But on the other hand KakaoTalk and LINE do the same thing, plus calls, for free...
