WhatsApp Messenger, among its many functions, offers a particularly useful one that allows you to send the same message to multiple contacts at once. The peculiarity of this function is that each recipient doesn’t know who the other recipients are.

WhatsApp, which has reached the incredibly amount of over 800 million active users each month, is developing a lot, especially since it was bought by Facebook. As you know, it is now the most used instant messaging application in the world and its success is daily growing. As a consequence its updates are always followed with great interest by the public.
Among WhatsApp features, probably Voice Calling is one of the favourite between its users. In fact it is already used by billions of people across the world, who use this function to call for free friends, family or colleagues. Initially Windows Phone users couldn’t use it, as it was enabled only for Android, Blackberry 10 and iPhone. But now things are developing again, and WhatsApp has introduced Voice Calling feature also on Windows Phone.

You probably have not even had the time to realize it, but in the last hours AirDroid lived a particular (we could say unique) experience: it was removed from the Play Store, but after a very short time it was readmitted.
It seems that the problem was created by the use of the term “WhatsApp”, which AirDroid included in the description of one of its services. The feature in question is the one that allows you to reply from PC to messages received through apps like WhatsApp.

WhatsApp has quickly become one of the most-used applications to send instant messages. One of its favourite options is the one that allows you to create group chats, so you can stay in touch with your friends, your family or your colleagues. But when a group is too big and you constantly get messages it could be annoying, especially when you are at work. But there is a solution.

According to some rumors, big news may soon arrive regarding the use of WhatsApp. The most widely used application in the world for instant messaging from smartphones (Android, iOS and other mobile platforms), purchased by the owner of Facebook (Mark Zuckerberg), could be updated with a version containing advertising.
If those rumors are correct, Zuckerberg intends to introduce targeted advertising to abolish the 0.89 euro cents (0.99 if you pay in dollars) that users have to pay once a year to use the chat. The application then would go back to being totally free, but the banners would be the price to pay. A target-advertising, as we said. If this decision is confirmed, Zuckerberg will sell data at a high price to companies who, in this way, may provide their services and targeted products (exactly as with Facebook Ads).
