As modern smart phones evolve especially regarding mobile applications and the usage of the internet becomes so wide, you get the benefit of finding ways to save yourself money. The mobile service provider charges you money for any single message that you send. You get to pay for the outrageous charges regardless of the data bundles that you have loaded on your line. Not that I want us to get free services from them, but still dishing out your cash unexpectedly does not sound right.
However, many applications have been developed that you can use to free calls like in the case of Skype or send millions of messages freely. WhatsApp is one such an application. All that is needed is for you and your recipient to have the message installed and you are all set to go.
The popularity of WhatsApp is ever increasing. In the statistics that were recently released, the app had reached the 1 Billion members mark. However, that is not their limit as the target is to get the remaining one Billion members.
Facebook bought WhatsApp APK in the year 2014. That forced some people to move to other chatting apps as they are personally worried about their privacy. In some countries like Netherlands, Telegram was embraced. However, Facebook little by little has managed to convince them of safety and the app downloads are on the rise.
Android and WhatsApp APK
On almost every mobile phone device, you will get WhatsApp installed. This is because the app is faster and safe for sharing text messages as well as videos and audio.
The app’s popularity can better be attested in India. It has been made short time since its popularity is huge to the extent that mobile service providers are no longer making profit from SMS traffic.
The popularity is also caused by the fact that users get to send as many messages as they want at zero charges. Of course all you need is to be connected to the internet via mobile data or WIFI hotspot.
So far, there is no option of downloading it directly to the computer. You can however, use third party software such as Blue Stacks that will act as a virtual machine and allow you to install WhatsApp APK.
Earlier on in 2014, the Android users have the option of connecting the mobile application to the computer browser. That way, they can you their PCs to chat.
