WhatsApp is a free mobile instant messaging app, currently used by over 2 billion people in more than 180 countries. As long as both parties have WhatsApp installed, they can communicate with it for free, even if they are not in the same country. Since the first version of WhatsApp was released in 2009, its user base has grown very rapidly. By 2014, the monthly active users exceeded 200 million, and the accumulated user information in one day reached 27 billion. It was eventually acquired by Facebook for a price of nearly 20 billion US dollars.
Although the user scale is large, it still maintains a simple design.
Unlike the Facebook app, WhatsApp, although it is owned the same company, still maintains very simple functions and a relatively small download size. This allows the app to open and respond quickly; as fast as opening the mobile phone's own text messaging software. It also means it uses less mobile data. The text chat and video call functions of WhatsApp are very stable during use, and in addition, the information sent through WhatsApp is end-to-end encrypted. This keeps the messaging secure by ensuring that only the sender and receiver can decode the information; it cannot be intercepted. Even Facebook itself cannot crack this encryption.
Some useful features of WhatsApp that are not easy to find.
In the version that released this year, WhatsApp has launched a voice playback acceleration function. If you have received a particularly long voice message, but you don’t have time to listen to it in full, just click on "1x, 1.5x, 2x" on the right-hand side of the message to increase the speed of the playback. Additionally, there are some advanced privacy options. In the settings, you can disable the ability for other parties to see when you have read their messages, as well as hide the display showing the last time you were online. You can also hide the message preview notifications. This is useful if you don’t want to be disturbed with popups.
Compared with Telegram, when is it better to use WhatsApp?
WhatsApp is more suitable for use among acquaintances, whereas Telegram focusses more on privacy. For example, on Telegram, you must be verified by the recipient before you can send messages, while on WhatsApp, messages can be sent to the other party simply by entering their phone number. Telegram also has the optional function of burning messages and photos after reading, which WhatsApp does not. Other differences in features include group video chat function, which WhatsApp has, and Telegram does not, and locating nearby people by geographic location, which Telegram has but WhatsApp does not.
