What is Whatsapp?
WhatsApp Messenger is a multi-platform mobile messaging app to exchange text (or voice) messages without paying for SMS, which can be installed mostly on any smartphone or mobile device for free.
How to Download Whatsapp on your phone?
WhatsApp Messenger can be downloaded and installed on traditional phone and smartphone like the BlackBerry, Nokia, iPhone, Samsung or any other Android, Windows or Ubuntu phone.
When Facebook paid $19 billion in stock and cash for WhatsApp Inc. in February 2014, many people were confused. After all, it was very hard to see exactly how the messaging service made money.
After all, Forbes estimated that WhatsApp only generated $20 million in its last year of operation as an independent company. Yet Mark Zuckerberg was willing to shell out nearly $20 billion for the company.
To make matters worse, the social messaging service famously refuses to tap one of the most popular and lucrative streams of cash online, namely advertising. WhatsApp founders Brian Acton and Jan Koum famously hate advertising and even wrote blog posts attacking the practice.

Are you thinking about sending a message through Viber or WhatsApp without touching your smartphone keyboard? Now it’s possible. Thanks to new updates introduced to Google Now (Google’s smartphone voice assistant), we are now allowed to send messages to our contacts through WhatsApp or other messaging applications like Viber, WeChat, NextPlus and Telegram simply dictating them.
By now it is a well-established daily routine: we send dozens of messages to our friends, family and colleagues to arrange appointments or just to share something with someone we care about. Starting from today we have an even easier way to do it. Today we are enabled to send messages via Android applications simply dictating them to Google Now, exactly as already happens with emails, text messages and Hangout.

How Was WhatsApp Created?
WhatsApp is not just one of the world’s most popular and successful messaging apps. It is also a very inspiring rags to riches story with some very humble beginnings.
The app’s beginning can be traced to January 2009, when a former Yahoo engineer named Jan Koum bought his first iPhone and started playing around with the App Store, Forbes reported. As he looked at the iPhone, Koum realized that apps would become a major new industry and a revenue generator.
