Until now WhatsApp, the famous messaging service, was available for Android, Windows phone, iPhone and BlackBerry users. Now, thanks to a new free app called WhatsMac, you can chat through WhatsApp directly from OS X. This new app is completely free and Open Source.
Furthermore, WhatsMac allows you to use WhatsApp as usual, to chat, to send and receive audio, video, images and text. If you are eager (or just curious) to download WhatsMac, you can download it for free from this page. So, if you are addicted to WhatsApp and use your Mac for the most part of the day, this could be the right thing for you. Even if it is important to keep in mind that, for the moment, this is not an official app. Anyway, it provides a good user interface to work with.
As we know the success of WhatsApp, one of the most complete and popular messaging applications, is constantly growing. This famous app has now an incredible number (more than 700 million!) of monthly active members with, as you can imagine, a huge traffic of information shared between them. For this reason, we think that you will find the following security tips of some use.
1. WhatsApp Lock – WhatsApp Lock is an extremely useful application to avoid nosy people. After installing this app, you will be asked to set a 4-digit PIN. But perhaps the most interesting feature of this app is that it automatically takes a photo from the camera if someone digits the wrong PIN, letting you know immediately who tried to use your device.
During the last few weeks WhatsApp has introduced Voip voice calls. This very expected feature, for the moment, is only available for Android users but it seems that also Windows Phone will soon have this important update available. In fact during the last hours we have seen explicit references to voice calls in WhatsApp for Windows Phone in the files sent for translation by the development team to the many translators who work for them.

WhatsApp is an app that allows users to chat for free with their contacts. This messaging service provides the ability to send and receive unlimited messages at no cost via the internet, simply using the 3G connection or Wi-fi smartphones. WhatsApp is available for different operating systems such as iPhone, Android and Windows Phone.
Installation: We can download WhatsApp simply accessing the App Store directly from our iPhone. After the purchase, the download will start automatically and we just have to wait for the installation to be completed.
The extraordinary success of WhatsApp seems unstoppable. In fact, this multi-platform messaging service has nearly reached one billion users, and Facebook (its official owner, who last year bought the app for nearly 22 billion dollars) doesn’t want to miss the opportunity to gain more from the service by opening it to businesses.
During the last F8 Conference we have seen how Facebook has transformed the Messenger platform into a service increasingly rich of features. Between them, surely stands out Messenger for Business, a well-known dedicated service that allows businesses to communicate with their customers in a more simple and effective way, offering assistance and customer care through the Messenger chat.

You are very excited because you have discovered that now you can use WhatsApp also from your computer. So you look for the link to download the program but can not find it. Why? It’s true that you can use WhatsApp from the pc, but it is not an application. In fact it is a web service accessible from browsers, precisely from Chrome, Firefox and Opera (Safari and Internet Explorer for the moment are not supported).
We were convinced that WhatsApp had not rivals, but we were wrong. In fact Telegram (a multi-platform messaging app), is spreading rapidly and probably is now the most serious rival of Whatsapp. The numbers, just updated, are incredible: 62 million monthly active users, 12 million of which are new users who joined the app in the last 4 months. In December 2014 there were 145,000 new users per day, now we talk about 220,000.
You were tired of spending money on SMS and were looking for a different way to send text messages without being obliged to change your telephone operator. So your friends suggested to install WhatsApp. Despite your relationship with smartphones is not really idyllic, you followed their advice and now you are very happy to use this famous app.
Exciting new features have been added on WhatsApp Beta 2:12:20 for Windows Phone. The development of WhatsApp’s client for Windows Phone smartphones continues, expanding the feature set which is now available for users who are trying the beta application. Let’s see them together.
As everyone knows, WhatsApp Messenger is a multi-platform mobile messaging app that allows you to exchange messages with your contacts without having to pay (as with SMS). WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia. As WhatsApp Messenger uses the same Internet data plan used for email and web browsing, there are not additional costs to send messages and keep in touch with your friends. In addition to basic messaging, WhatsApp users can create groups, share unlimited images, video and audio multimedia messages.

WhatsApp is the instant messaging application most used in the world, and it is now more important and more used than sms. WhatsApp provides, besides others, a useful function that indicates if one of your contacts is currently online or not. Furthermore, it can show you when was the list time that someone was online. This option is called “Last seen”.
However, this feature (called also Timestamp) has also been widely criticized. In fact, people usually do not like that everyone can see when they were “last seen”. Maybe you can not reply immediately to any message, while others expect you to do it because they know that you have read it, based on the “last seen”. In fact, WhatsApp Last Seen, through the timestamp, shows exactly when was the last time that someone closed the App.
New surprises from WhatsApp. All the users of this famous app will be happy to know that Material Design finally arrives in the stable version of WhatsApp. In fact, the popular app released a new update, but not, as you may think, the version 3.0. Instead WhatsApp switches to version 2.12.74, bringing officially Material Design, the new interface, on Play Store.
Until now it was possible to use the latest interface only installing manually the APK available on the official website of WhatsApp, which was actually a public beta. So, this latest update brings WhatsApp Material Design out of the beta phase. However, it is still missing the backup function via Drive, already disappeared from some beta, thus making us think that, probably, it has been released as a test in one of the previous versions.

The new version of WhatsApp (22.214.171.124), which is downloadable from the digital store BlackBerry World, includes the possibility to call contacts using WhatsApp, without seeing the minutes on your calling plan being scaled; to make your calls will be used the cellular network (2G, 3G, 4G).

Someone you just met tells you “Send me a WhatsApp”, and gives you his/her number. But on WhatsApp it does not appear. So, how can you send the message? You have to contact someone that is not in your contact list on WhatsApp. Even if you ask the number the problem remains: how can you contact this person?
WhatsApp does not have the ability to add a new contact. The user name is the phone number. The list of contacts you have on WhatsApp are taken from the phone book, they are the numbers that you have stored on your phone. To add a new contact on WhatsApp, you have to add it in your address book. So, follow these steps.
Let me guess, you want to avoid writing a long text and you are looking for a simple way to record a voice message using Whatsapp? If so, I would say that you have found the right article. Today in fact, with this article, we will see together the rapid procedure to record a Voice Message on Whatsapp, being able to express what you think quickly and without the need to write.
A development after another, and always something new for the users. We obviously speak of Whatsapp and the recent, strange partnership with Google. Now you can, in fact, perform automatic backups of conversations directly to Google Drive. Surely, hearing this news, the first thing that each of us must have thought is: “Goodbye privacy!”.
Well, certainly before today you can’t say that there was a lot more, but perhaps there was one thing that Google did not know about us: our activity on Whatsapp. There was in fact, not anymore! Certainly it is really convenient to be able to save our data on a server virtually inviolable as the one made available by Google – especially for those who often change their device.
