Anytime Anywhere App - WhatsApp changed the way we communicate.
WhatsApp will go in history as an App which change the way across the globe how we communicate. Just downloaded as a chat app to connect local friends planning weekend meetup. Now No international calling cards, all my family and friends, I call them via audio and video calls via WhatsApp. For Work, Professional Network, Professional Network, for connecting with people of same geographical area, same interest I manage more than 1500 different WhatsApp groups. WhatsApp you are amazing. I am still waiting for the feature when Admin can delete messages posted by spammers in groups and remove and delete a spammer from all groups with single click. Wrote to WhatsApp Team few times and still waiting for that Admin Privilege. Thanks WhatsApp, you have become “Anytime Anywhere App” for billions including me.
My account and multiple people I work with all had our accounts hacked on the same day. WhatsApp claims that when you verify your phone number, any accounts still logged in on other devices will automatically log off, and they will have to verify your phone number. This is not true, for the people that hacked our workplace was still able to use our numbers and impersonate us. We have screenshots and a record of the times on Reddit. Not only did they take over our phone numbers, but they also changed the six-digit security pin and the emails associated with our accounts. Customer support does not exist. There is nobody to talk to. You can send an email, but you’ll get an automated reply. They said that you could wait seven days to log into your account without a six-digit pin and delete your account that way. So while you wait the seven days, they have full access to your account and number. WhatsApp is only end-to-end encrypted, meaning all messages are stored on the device that initially sent the message. Everything else can easily be exploited to gain access to your account. This severe security flaw has been used repeatedly with the addition of zero customer support.
I had an issue with receiving notifications from this app for about two months. I did everything: turning off and on the notifications from the app and my phone, shutting off my phone, resetting it, updating my phone and the app many times. Then I decided to just delete the app and reinstall. It did the trick. However now, I can’t back up my media on the app because of storage space. I’ve deleted over 2k of photos and videos from my gallery, deleted more than half my apps on my phone, and cleared/deleted multiple chats on iMessage and WhatsApp. I finally reached to the point where I was able to backup my stuff. It worked for a while, but then the app shut down. Once I opened it again, it told me I had to clear 5.34GB again. After deleting all those things, I’m required to delete more. My phone capacity is 128GB and my phone only holds 83GB. I don’t understand where the issue is and why this is happening. No, I did not contact WhatsApp support. I’ve contacted them with my other issue and I didn’t not receive much help. This won’t be any different. It’s frustrating. This issue doesn’t seem to happen to anyone else I know, just with me.
Today I updated the latest version and I am able to write the review. I reached out to help multiple times regarding this issue but of no use. Such useless service. Now about the issue, you messed up something with iOS version. I am unable to change my number on WhatsApp. It always says I am not using the official WhatsApp, when I reached the help, your team gave me a link which redirects me here again and I don’t see any option to install as I already have the same app installed it allows me only to open. Till yesterday I could not even write this review. Whenever I clicked on write review, it used to say I am not owning this app. As I updated the app today, I am able to write the review now that means your team fixed something with this update. Next issue, as part of the above issue I took the backup my chat history to iCloud and deleted the account, hoping that will clear any glitches but while doing it WhatsApp completely deleted the backup from iCloud. How can WhatsApp delete my backup without asking for confirmation? This is ridiculous. I should be able to download the chat history with any other number.
Not user friendly for end-to-end encrypted backup password
What’s app is not user friendly in the case of iCloud backup end-to-end encrypted password. I am stuck in the what’s app after install in my new iPhone. I couldn’t have chance to access my old iPhone so I can’t change the encrypted forgot password. To using new iPhone app needs to allow user to get in their account. For me only allow to check the phone number and it’s directly came to iCloud Restore back up. If I turn off iCloud or my iCloud account also not allow me to get in my what’s app account. It’s showing if I skip to restore I can’t restore backup anymore. Now what’s app is not user friendly. Restore backup what’s app is a user decision. But here what’s app only deciding what we need to do. If it allow me to get in my account then I can change or turn off my encrypted password for my backup. Now I am hate to use apple product and what’s app. What ever user safety or protection need to give some option to check the correct user to use what’s app. In future I won’t recommend anyone to use what’s app and apple product. Best to use text message in any device. End to end encryption is too frustration
This app is full of fake accounts and scammers. Do not believe ANYONE on a dating app who asks you to move to talking to them on WhatsApp. I nearly had my entire account stolen if I hadn’t looked up popular whatsapp scams online first. If you are asked to go to WhatsApp, do not share your photos or your personal info like full name or date of birth or location proper. If things seem fine and then they send an emoji that makes no sense, do not bother opening the message. Immediately uninstall WhatsApp because the emoji will try and crash your WhatsApp and if you force close it without removing it first, it will crash your phone and then the scammer has full access to everything on your phone. I thought everything was fine until this guy sent me a cow emoji on a post about me telling him I hoped he had a good day. When I opened my WhatsApp the entire screen went blurry and I couldn’t maneuver the app, so I just went to the home screen without closing it, and then completely removed WhatsApp. I have had far too many people on dating apps try to get me to just use WhatsApp with very suspicious habits. Do yourself a favor, don’t do it.
I started using WhatsApp because a couple of friends used it. I created an account with my personal phone number and I sent three messages to a friend saying that I have finally gotten an account and for them to have a good night. That was all. The next day I see that my account is “not allowed to use WhatsApp”. I think oh maybe it has to do with some privacy or contact restrictions I have on my phone. No. I look through all restrictions I could possibly have, none are turned on. All I sent to that friend was notifying them that I got the app and for them to have a good night. No cursing. No explicit language. No explicit photos. Nothing that would trigger their terms of service yet I got banned. I tried deleting and re-downloading the app, but when I enter my phone number the ban message was still there. I appealed to get my account unbanned earlier today and granted I may get a reply from them later. But it is still extremely annoying that this happened. I’ve seen other replies, talking about the same thing. Can someone please tell me what I did to get my account banned because I have absolutely no idea.
Since I was introduced to WhatsApp I can talk to my friends and relativs around the world and I use it more than anything else it gives hopes to people can FaceTime can be connected can show emotion feeling and express themselves without being judge or anybody listening to their conversationGod bless the person create what’s up and I hope they don’t change their policy because we don’t want to live in a communist country because they listening to your conversation and we don’t want to be in a country they censorAnything you write or speak if they don’t like it the punishment is severe people in this country have to appreciate what’s up because they don’t know the other way .I started with my close relative and now I have around 100 people in touch with me through Whats happy occasions matchmaking in many many other things .love what’s up👏
I just got a new phone and a new US phone number I downloaded WhatsApp on my new phone. All my contacts were still there but my chat histories were gone. I used WhatsApp how I would normally use it. There were no chats on the main screen of my WhatsApp, I clicked on the contact of one of my friend’s to chat with and it created a completely new chat (therefore there was now one chat on my mainscreen). Normally whenever someone changes their phone number, it just notifies the other person that the person has changed their phone number. But in my case, it just created a whole new chat with the person. After I texted with 3 people with my new phone (only 3 chats were on my WhatsApp mainscreen), I got a “banned for spamming” message on my screen. After around 10 hours, they said I could reactivate my account. I put in my phone number and just as I was writing my display name, I received another ban. Now I just got my account back a second time so hopefully the same error doesn’t happen! I’m really upset by this and I hope WhatsApp manages to fix it.
It is asinine that numbers I do not have saved in my contacts and from other countries at that are able to call me and have been calling me nonstop at all hours. It’s entirely archaic to not be able to silence calls entirely and to have that many settings missing from being able to be customized. These creeps have some how found my number because of whatsapps trashy old system and have been abusing the fact that I cannot mute calls separately and have to individually report and block all of them. My do not disturb settings are set because in case of an emergency if someone needs their call to get through to me I will hear it ring the second time. However because of this stupidly underdeveloped app, random strangers from across the world have been disrespecting what should be a feature to keep my family safe and have been calling me at all hours because whatsapp is trash when it comes to privacy and safety and because they are behind on customizing your settings. Now to mention how stupid it is to have this ghetto app integrated onto my actual phones call logs.
Bring back our old stock WhatsApp features including new features too
Please I'm giving WhatsApp 3 star because of the recent iOS update it's not so good to be honest. Talking of the status update I can't select and delete all my status updates at once I can't even search for the particular status I wanna view. It's hard to now navigate through WhatsApp like it used to be like noo we don't want this please return WhatsApp with the old status update style. The new update is cool and stuffs but please there are some things that makes WhatsApp special you're taking them away already Mark! Work with your team and make WhatsApp a better place for us and bring back our old stock WhatsApp features including the new WhatsApp features too. WhatsApp is cool if you retain the old quality but add new features to it. That's why iPhone is still the best still the same old Apple but new features on every new phone released. Mark and the Meta team please create a better WhatsApp.
I am particularly fascinated with WhatsApp because of its versatility and agility as far as social media platforms are concerned. It takes customer privacy and security into great context and go out of their way to protect that customer information from 3rd parties and hackers. I have never heard of a hack or security breach into WhatsApp security systems. Overall the App has been great and has eased the way the world has connected via talking and sharing digital and graphical data. The only downside to WhatsApp is that when you lose your device or are out of storage and uninstall the app, you typically lose all your previous chats and data. I would have been great if WhatsApp had an option for optional storage space for sale, for folk to backup their communication and social media data. Thank you
I need to communicate with friends and family outside the country. I just got a new phone, and I choose to make a new WhatsApp account, it worked perfectly fine for the first three days I had it, then I accidentally deleted the app, so of course I downloaded it back. The a screen pops up that says "agree to terms and conditions", I press yes, then another thing appears and has a little thing to put your number in,when I put in my number, a tab popped up that says "NUMBER CONFORMATION", then states my number, and says "is your phone number above correct?" I press yes, (because it was) and the it just goes back to the original screen before that says "WhatsApp will need to verify your account. Carrier charges may apply." I don't know what this means and why it says that. I've never done anything wrong and it's a brand new account and number. I use this app ALL THE TIME for texting my friends and even work. Please verify my account WhatsApp and then let me access it. PLEASE
Appalling Experience! Arbitrary Number Suspension by WhatsApp!
During my recent travel to a foreign country, WhatsApp shockingly suspended my phone number without any valid explanation. As we're aware, in many parts of Europe and Latin America, businesses rely heavily on WhatsApp for customer communication. In fact, I was explicitly advised by the hotels in Peru to use WhatsApp as the primary means of contact during my stay. Right in the midst of providing crucial information to the hotel for my pickup arrangement, WhatsApp abruptly disabled my number. I promptly submitted a review request to reinstate my number, but to my utter dismay, WhatsApp not only failed to address the issue but completely banned my number! I found myself stranded in the remote mountains of Peru, desperately needing to contact the hotel for pickup. Unfortunately, the hotel didn't answer my phone calls, and I couldn't communicate in the local language. To make matters worse, this happened just as the sun was setting. The timing of WhatsApp's arbitrary number suspension couldn't have been more disastrous, leaving me in a state of extreme distress with no means of reaching the hotel.
I had a pop up from WhatsApp requesting access to all photos. I can't even remember the last time I used the app (it has been over a year) and at the time the pop up was displayed I was browsing in Safari. Since I didn't expect the pop up I mindlessly clicked Allow and then immediately went into settings to revoke all photos access. WhatsApp should not be requesting access to all photos out of the blue. I'm giving 4 stars because the app worked fine as far as I remember. I wanted to report the issue to WhatsApp but have not found a way to do that so am attempting to let somebody know by writing a review. I'll probably delete the app now though to avoid future occurrences. It makes me suspicious of what it could possibly be doing in the background without my knowledge because I didn't do anything that should result in WhatsApp wanting access to my photos.
Firstly I’d like to commend u guys for creating such a fantastic updated version by including voice notes recording to WhatsApp status, to be honest it’s so good. But it’s got few bugs and you’ve got to fix them; 1) once I go offline and I get back online I won’t see any status that was posted while I wasn’t online and it’s heartbreaking especially for business owners like us, we post goods available for sale and most of our customers are unable to see them and patronize us because they were not online the moment we updated our status. 2) As a business owner I have lots of contacts of customers but due to the traffick on the app my WhatsApp hangs really bad I find it difficult to post on my status and if atall I try to it take up to 1hr before my post finally get uploaded. Pls this is really frustrating pls fix it before I start considering abandoning WhatsApp for another social media app that doesn’t glitch. Thank you.
WhatsApp in general is fine. But every photo I take in the app is fuzzy; and more zoomed in than my normal photos app. It’s like they are putting camera in video mode and taking a screenshot. I guess this is part of their cross platform library but still, I wish it would let the camera app use more native and high quality functionality. Additionally, it’s wayyy too easy to send things to the wrong person. You can’t remove people from “recently contacted” or “frequently contacted” prompts around iOS for sharing. I’m terrified I will send my girlfriends brother something immodest because his name shows above hers even though our chat volumes are way different. WhatsApp is a globally loved tool but has some pretty strange UX issues given its financial backer and experienced staff. I will continue to use it as most of the world doesn’t have iMessage; but if they did; I don’t think I’d miss the WhatsApp app that much.
Giving 3 stars, only because overall, I love WhatsApp…, but this is simply unacceptable. I am part of a large conservative group of people who is on the verge of getting rid of Whatsapp altogether. Some already have deleted their WhatsApp. This is all taken place since the “channels” were put on the WhatsApp home screen. I was determined to ignore the channels as they were simply an annoyance to me, and kind of in the way of viewing the daily updates of my friends and family. They were an annoyance, but one I could put up with, in exchange for the convenience and enjoyment of having Whatsapp as an option for communication. But then today I came on, and there was an unavoidable pornographic channel right in plain sight. I wasn’t able to find how to delete it either. Unfortunately that crosses a line for me, and many, many others in my life. If you don’t make a change, maybe in the content you allow on the channel icons/cover pics or the placement of the channels altogether within the app, I fear, I may need to follow the course of the many gone before me. Please consider moving Channels off the screen with an option to go to it whenever the user pleases, but only when they choose. Even better though, would be to have much higher standards for what you allow your channels to place as their cover photo. Thank you so much for your consideration!
I really love this app. It's incredible how you can talk with anyone around the world without paying actual money. There’s nothing wrong happening with my version, the camera works well and shoots good photos. There are some things that would make this app the best messaging app. The first one is that when you mute a group chat there should be an option that allows you to mute it forever, same goes with the real-time location. When you create a group, others shouldn’t have the option to kick you from the group, and there should be an option to make someone not be an admin without having to kick the person and adding them again. Also, I really want the GIFs to have their own spot so you don’t need to go to Photos and Videos and then click GIFs. Also, make a DRAWING option. Well, that’s all. Thanks for this amazing app.
I would like to humbly suggest an update in the name of users who use Bluetooth AirPods. The microphones on these devices are terrible for recording voice memos. People never understand what I say. It would be good if it were like Instagram. On Instagram, when you record a voice message it utilizes the iPhone mic instead of the AirPod mic even when using the AirPods. When I am having a conversation with someone via voice memos on WhatsApp, I have to turn off Bluetooth, then record my voice memo. After I’m done recording I have to turn Bluetooth back on. It goes on and off indefinitely until I am done with my conversation. So with that it would be awesome if we had the option to turn off the Bluetooth/AirPod mic only in a setting or just update it to be like Instagram where it records on the iPhones mic and only plays back on the AirPods. Thank you so much!!
Hi WhatsApp… it’s your boy here. Yeah just wanted to say the app is great, really. Being from Jamaica, WhatsApp is pretty dominant, a great and easy way to connect with people you love. I have no issues using WhatsApp normally, but 2 years ago I discovered I had to manually split long videos myself in order to upload them to my status, I did do it for a time, then I stopped. It’s now 2022 and I still have to manually split long videos if I want to upload the whole thing to my status. I sure do hope the reason you haven’t added a feature to automatically split long videos into segments for WhatsApp status, isn’t because the world will explode if you do. If that’s not the case, then that’s all I’d like to see. Boy would it save me some time. Great app btw, definitely won’t stop using it unless you do something horrible…. Like kill a child
What was once a wonderful secure platform is fast becoming a laughingstock ever since it was touched by Facebook. So thoroughly disappointed. Relatives abroad had told me that Facebook is phasing out WhatsApp but demands that we give them all our contact details; I’m not for that. Apparently, In the UK, WhatsApp was given customers until the first week of February before they close an account if the customer refused to except terms to the detriment of customer privacy. Now there is a delay to this change? It’s still going to happen so why the delay? Could it be that this delay is to collect our information anyway without a permission, anyway? I have now started looking for a replacement to WhatsApp. I am sorry to be parting company with you but it isn’t the secure independent platform it once was and the quality has progressively deteriorated. To be honest, if I could opt for zero stars that would be the level at this point. I’ve been trying to speak to others over the platform but I’ve spent more time trying to reconnect or redial and it’s just not worth it. Another competitor bows out.
Suddenly i was unable to open the application and I tried again and again but it work and i am ao worried about datas and deleted the application and restored it again and it worked fot one hour and of course all my data history was not in the application and whike I tried again to restore the backup from iCloud it suddenly stopped functioning again and it shows a message that you have been temporarily banned and you will be able to use WhatsApp after six hours and when six hours was over I opened the application and with a minute it again gave the same message you have been temporarily banned and you will be only be able to use WhatsApp after six hours and this is still the same situation I am facing and i am much concerned about my data's last history I have important informations and attachments which I am unable to get back . And actually I am not sure if my account was hacked or it's mistake of WhatsApp.
As an avid user of social internet media , I found WhatsApp is lacking in many convenient features offered in other apps. I use Facebook when I want to express some thoughts, events etc. But FB Messenger is not efficient in quick text, so I still resort to 20 years old practice in text msg like in Nokia phones. WhatsApp is subservient to the features offered by WeChat. Understood that WeChat is by Tencent in China, nevertheless the features are amazing. The Moment posting functions are like Facebook post. The conversation wether individual or in chat groups are more user friendly than WhatsApp. It allows recalling a wrong message sent in mistake. Attaching files and emojis are awesome. My only complain is that once viewed in one device the message cannot be reviewed in an other, which FB allows all history conversation once logged in. I lived in America over 47 years. I highly recommend friends to use WeChat for daily contacts over other apps.
I've done nothing wrong and WhatsApp is my main messaging and communication app, use it to study, work and most important to keep in contact with my immediate family members who live far from me in another country, i have never done anything illegal or against their policy on there and I'm desperate to get my account back. And I've not used any unofficial app I've always only used the official app. At this point I don't even know yet if it's a permanent or temporary ban I've sent hundreds of emails since this happened more than 6 days ago, l've tried everything I could imagine to get in contact with support and I've not received a single reply. I have not know from my family for days because of this and is starting to frustrate me more, the only option I have left is keep sending messages through Instagram and Facebook as well and even post this here because I don't know what else I can do since this was obviously done by mistake. I cannot change my phone number because this number in linked to way too many sites.
The app is really great and connects me with my contacts all over the world. It makes it easy to stay in touch. You can text and even call for free. Doesn’t get any better than that! The only thing I would change is how easy it is to call people by accident. It happens all the time. I wish they would hide that button behind the profile page. This is mostly a texting app, do we really need that button on the first page?Even on an iPhone you have to first click the i button from the message page to call someone. It’s smart. Another issue is that the app distorts the quality of pics and videos after they are sent. I often receive videos with delayed sound and fuzzy images. I have to ask my contacts to send me those through other apps so I can actually get the proper sound. Please fix and it will be the most perfect app!
Sometimes my messages can’t go through on time and it’s takes forever for them to receive it. When I text my friends who own Samsung devices, the message won’t go through even though they’re still online. It usually takes about 3 to 2 minutes for the other person to read my message(s). What really bugs me is that once it shows *last seen today at (time)* the message that I’ve sent is delivered, and it’s would show the double check mark. So the person who I sent a message to would only get it if they exit out the app. Plus, no matter how much messages you send to that person, they will never receive it until they exit out of WhatsApp. Please fix this issue🙏🏼. It makes it really hard to communicate, even when it’s an emergency.
I don’t particularly like the way they do things on this platform. They claim to be secure and all but they are way up in your business for the most part and they are really rude to you if you need help with anything. To me they are just another version of Big Brother like the rest of their platforms are. I barely use any of them anymore because they have a funny way of seeing things that are really important to me. I know that in my country life used to be extremely racist and misogynistic etc but at least we had a little privacy and freedom. Or maybe I am not remembering it correctly. I don’t know, I just don’t feel like I have any of those things on these apps. I’m not even allowed to use profanity in front of an AI! I mean, come on! It’s a machine! I’m sure glad to know we’re about to ascend into the 5th dimension and out of this matrix. Lol I hope it doesn’t get worse than this one.
recently I've been having some trouble with it on my iPhone X. It freezes once I open it and no matter how long I wait for, it doesn't unfreeze. Force quitting the app, restarting my phone of powering the phone off then putting it back on after some time doesn't help. sometimes have a few seconds after relaunching it to move around before it freezes again and that It helped me resolve it the first time it happened by deleting over 40 GB of media from chats. Now it's started freezing on launch again and I can't even successfully delete any media from my WhatsApp to try to fix it. have a lit of free space on my phone by the way, so I'm not sure what the cause is. It happens so suddenly. One moment I'm using it, the next moment, it won't work no matter what. still see the notifications from messages coming in, but can't do anything about them.
I’ve got a lot of problems with my WhatsApp app. First of all why every time i add stories then when I went back and deleted em other people still can see em? Today’s been 3 years since I started using WhatsApp but it still the same why i have to update my WhatsApp app every once in a while? And the main thing I noticed is even when I blocked someone i can read their stories and the can read mine as well sometimes i got very upset and one thing i also noticed is when I’m talking to someone on WhatsApp my background always looks black or blank and it won’t let me do nothing. Please guys do something with this app that will makes everyone happy. I use WhatsApp more than any other apps out here please fix these issues for me. Thank you 🙏🏾
Before, they don’t banned your phone number until maybe so much people report your phone numbers maybe when you are broadcasting fake things or maybe scammers that are sending spam messages or fake messages to scam people, but right now, since this new person took over WhatsApp, they will just seat down, and you will be logged out of WhatsApp, you will see a display messages telling you you have been logged out because someone has logged into your device in another place. They will now display (Verify, or Cancel ). When you verify, you see a message telling you , you your phone number has been banned from using WhatsApp. This is so bad , it’s not nice at all. You can’t just seat down and begging to banned people’s phone numbers for no reason. Same thing they do to you ok facebook, your facebook will not do anything bad , you will see that , your facebook account has been suspended. Not nice at all. It’s annoying. Please , Mark Zuckerberg, stop this.
TAG FEATURE SHOULD BE ADDED WHEN UPLOADING ON STATUS.
I’ll suggest that contact should be able to tag people on their status , because sometimes people upload your pictures and you don’t end up seeing it within 24hrs when it disappears ... but if a tag feature is added , I can easily upload a picture and tag whosoever is in it and even though he doesn’t end up viewing all his contact status he will definitely see mine and I get a “thank you” This happens mostly on birthdays when a lot of people upload a picture of you and you can’t view all contact status to know who and who uploaded your picture so you can thank them... but with this tag feature ... contacts can tag who is in his/her story and the person get to see it ... Thank you
First: Before i was able to see the # of people that saw my story without having to log into the actual story….. now I cant… what are you doing? You’re making WhatsApp into a little version of Facebook, did you see how many stars Facebook has on Apple Store? It’s almost -1 on top of the fact you can’t even express yourself cause y’all block our accounts….ridiculous!!!!! Second: I do not want any channels. I stay away from social media not to have to see any of these ridiculous celebrities and their nonsense…. Now i have BadBun ny displayed to be followed…… why? You need to make an option for people to TURN THESE OFF! I didn’t like it on Facebook and I don’t like it here. It’s gotten to the point i don’t even want to have WhatsApp anymore and I’ve had it for over 12 years……. Stop trying to perfect this and perfect the signal and audio/video quality. Some of us are old school and don’t want to look into celebrities…. I only watch my contacts stories…. Third: If you keep adding more “technology” to this app a lot of people will stop using it…. Mark my words…. We liked the SIMPLICITY of the app, how easy it was for us to communicate with our families in other countries…. Now it’s like i said in the first paragraph “a little version of Facebook” we don’t want that….. we want silence and privacy…. Not that we can have all that with y’all anyways…..
I was using WhatsApp alright until i woke up one morning to meet the message that my number has been banned from using WhatsApp. I haven’t downloaded any third party apps and my account is free of scam or any form of spam. No one has reported my account either and all of a sudden my number has been banned. I requested a review but was told there is nothing they can do about it and they had no reason to give to me as well for banning my number from WhatsApp. The only option i have now is to sign up with a new number and this apparently that means i’ll loose my previous texts and chats with friends from my contact and this is really bad!! I tried signing up again with the same number and I was told to wait for 12 hours to be able to verify my number with the one time password (OTP). Even after waiting all that while, I still couldn’t get my account unbanned and I’ve sent various emails to the support team but still no positive feedback. Where is the Credibility??
There is not enough text space to write down everything I love about this app, nor do I have the time to write it all down!! Suffice it to say, I wish I could get everyone in my contact list to use this. For work, we have a record of all of our conversations, which in my line of business, this has been a really good thing for us. Also, you can see when the person read the message. Being able to back up conversations to the Cloud has also been useful. One of the things I’m most impressed by the Developors of this app is that they are constantly updating the app with new capabilities. Like I said, there are several things I could continue to write about how much I love this app. Suffice it to say, it’s one of the best Apps in my phone and I’m a hard critic when I comes App reviews.
Still not syncing contacts since iOS update months ago
When IOS updated several months ago, one of the features that was affected on WhatsApp was the option to sync contacts. I called Apple then and they informed me that each app provider must update their security profiles to be compatible with the new IOS. There have been 2 updates of IOS since then and still, WhatsApp hasn’t got with the program. Utility of WhatsApp has gone down as I have to research each contact to try to even place a call to them. Numbers that are in my phone book don’t register so it’s difficult to know which contact is which without that extra step in research. Furthermore, I can’t save new numbers directly from WhatsApp to my phone. This is quite frustrating. I have never left a review on this app before and decided that 5-6 months of this is enough. Can you please update your app to resolve this issue with iPhone!
Love WhatsApp. Use it more than any other app. 100x better than SMS! However, it recently was hacked. And the person that did it, tried to scam my friends, family and business associates out of money by saying he was me and needed to borrow money. This was the moment I realized whatsapp support was zero help. I sent them messages and they replied with copied text from their FAQ. It was ridiculous. They did help one bit as it almost felt like they were supporting my hacker. Make sure you set your 2FA. And if you get hacked, delete whatsapp and change the SIM card in your phone. Then you have to wait 7-days for the email authentication to reset. My hacker kept resetting it so it actually took a lot longer. C’mon whatsapp! Figure out how to shut these guys down. Use the power of Facebook and figure it out!
#1. Bring back the hidden archived chats ! It’s for personal security and privacy ! Staying hidden was waaay better, please bring it back and just find another way of notifying the user if there’s a new message from the hidden archive. If it’s not by default at least it should be put in settings where you could activate & personalize user experience. #2. Selecting a list from your contacts to broadcast a message to is not an easy task especially for those of us who have lots of contacts list. I think we’ll be way better off if we had the option to “auto / multi” select all (256) contacts at once, rather manually doing it, It gets really boring at times. Also increase the total number of contacts who can receive a broadcast message at a time. (256) ain’t enough. Thanks
I recently bought an iPhone 14 pro max! I switched from a Samsung galaxy note! In my world I am American and my wife is Dominican! We use WhatsApp daily to speak to one another! Often I copy and paste in conversation because my Spanish is mediocre at best! I itch my Samsung phone I could copy multiple messages at one time and paste to my translator to keep up with the pace of conversation! With Apple that piece of functionality isn’t there! I just don’t think the Apple people understand or have done enough research as to why certain things are important. To copy one message at a time has brought our conversations back to the stone ages! I really like my iPhone! But this is consistent in many applications but it really means something when using WhatsApp!
iPhone ex I can't send a picture I can't change anything in the picture I can't write anything in the picture because the frame is a large then I can get the frames bigger the frames of the pictures bigger then the screen please fix this problem because I can't send picture from iPhone X ⬆️ Now it's fixed this is update for this I have other problem sometimes everything applaud when I'm inside the app and I can't make everything move until I push volume up volume down and power to shut down the iPhone this is coming between every week every two weeks inside the app everything is freezing Hello, WhatsApp does not work with me now and I cannot move anything inside it as long as I am connected to the internet, whether through Wi-Fi or through 4G and it does not move until I close WhatsApp, then close all communications and activate flight mode, then enter, do not move inside the application and do not send to anyone
With this stupid new update, Let me just try to be brief: •You can’t delete multiple statuses anymore, you have to delete one by one, it’s a very long and exhausting process if you post a lot •You can’t mute statuses anymore, it’s now impossible •You can’t preview a status, thanks to the update, it’s also now impossible •You can’t search for someone’s status, you have to scroll till you find them, feel sorry for those with over 500 contacts •Channels are being forced onto users, literally you can’t enable or disable them, they’re always there and they’re annoying to look at, I follow no channel and I wish I could get rid of the channel tab from my WhatsApp, no one and I mean no user in there right mind asked for channels, this was WhatsApp, not Telegram not Instagram, WhatsApp is a place for close friends and Family, not a place for me to follow Celebrities and Companies... we already have enough apps for that. •If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it - When will Companies learn? To be honest I feel like they might charge users and make all the features they removed a premium subscription. The greed Big companies have nowadays, it’s no longer about user experience, it’s now about how to milk the most money out of a user’s pocket. I won’t be surprised if they do this •They added useless features that people will never use and removed useful features that people use on a daily
So me and my friend were talking and I put too much emojis I didn’t even get to send I kept copying and pasting u until it makes a long paragraph because I wanted to try something but it just lagged and then I left WhatsApp and went back onto it and clicked on the friend I was texting but it didn’t open. Every time I click onto our chat, it doesn’t open it just lags on her name then I need to get off WhatsApp and on again I also turned off my phone and opened it again and still the same problem. I could open other peoples chat but not me and hers. It does let me go onto her contact info when I long click on her name but when I tried to get back onto our chat it wouldn’t work I even tried to do the chat search and it wouldn’t work. What would only work is the media,links and docs and the starred messages so please try to help me out with getting back onto our chat.❤️
WhatsApp is an amazing chatting app that conveniently connects you to a broad chat base of your family & loved ones, friends and acquaintances alike at a quick setup without having to generate unique ways to connect with each other. It has a plethora of other cool features like ability to make voice and video calls etc. and now even make payments to each other for a dinner you shared but did not pay for... BUT all this power without the possibility to lock the app or have a password access is a waste of opportunity to complete the offering by WhatsApp. I really feel THEY ARE RATHER LATE. PASSWORD PROTECT OPTION at starting the app window IS MISSING AND should have been there like yesterday ... it’s a simple feature addition but gives many people the safety they want to protect their communication and today communication is everything!
Ok whatsapp why are so you put exit when you have no space literally what if yo have no service I literally had no service and then your like oh no space exit what if someone has a problem and needs my help then I fixed that problem and deleted photos but then I noticed when I clicked on camera or mic it says to go to setting to enable it and I never unable it and then it takes me to the setting where it says WhatsApp and it says nothing to enable a camera I search it up and it says to go to some photo thing so I can turn it on WhatsApp the photos and mic and it shows nothing all it shows is apps that have requested to access to you will appear hear please fix this I did nothing to WhatsApp I like it but this is frustrating
I love this app, but 1 thing I wish they would change is their notification system/inability to get calls when I’m on another cal. Sometimes I’ll be on a phone call from my actual phone, and then when I get off the phone an hour later, and if someone from WhatsApp is trying to call me, it’ll say “Missed Video call from____”. To me, it’s annoying how if I’m automatically on a phone call, the WhatsApp video call won’t go through period. WhatsApp should let the video call go through, so even while I’m on my phone during another phone call, and I see someone calling me, I can answer the other. Sometimes it’s important and I need to answer because it’s family from another country, but I never can because WhatsApp automatically tells them I’m on another call, but doesn’t notify me. Fix it. Please. It works with audio calls, why not do this for video calls too?
WhatsApp is one of the best messengers, the fastest and most efficient, but I have a problem. I can not stop showing a call made through the application in the search history (spotligth) of the iphone. it doesn't matter from where you delete the call, not even deleting the contact at all from the iPhone, It always appears the last time you called that contact in the spotlight search if you call it with WhatsApp. This phenomenon does not happen with the native application of iPhone calls, deleting them from the history deletes them from everywhere and there is no trace of it in the spotlight search. This little detail does not happen with WhatsApp. I have had personal problems because of it, I hope you know what Iam talking about and solve this. Regards.
I have used WhatsApp for about a year now, and I love it!!!!WhatsApp is an overall Great and Safe social Media!!! It allows me to be able to communicate with friends and family around the world! WhatsApp is a great way to message and talk to your friends and and family virtually! It has satisfied me 100%! I extremely suggest it. One feature that I’m in love with is, the status feature, it allows you to post videos,gifs,pictures about you and what your doing today, and plus to keep it safe, only your contacts or the people you chose can view it!! WhatsApp is amazing! My friends and I enjoy it very much!! It keeps me in touch with everyone! 😊! I 100% recommend anyone to use WhatsApp, it’s completely safe and free!! 🤩🤩 Sincerely, Kira Robinson
Update November 2022: Latest update introduced more bugs. Now screen moves up and bottom half turn black and you can’t use the app properly. Every time this requires user to completely close app and re-open it again. Please fix these bugs and do more testing before you release updates. At least you fixed the more annoying bugs mentioned below. Thanks for that. Dear Developers, this last update totally screwed up the app. - I’m getting blank screens where you can see the text box while typing. - The list of chats keeps moving down before you can select on it (so you enter the wrong chat) or - when stationary it always selects the chat below the one you select. So you have to select another chat to get into the one you want. Seriously? Revert to a previous safe build and do more testing before you push new updates out, it’s becoming annoying enough to make me want to report these bugs in a review. Happy to submit screen shots or video with version/phone info if needed (latest updated iOS and WhatsApp updated). Other then that my only other WhatsApp suggestions is -to allow users to edit or delete their messages (outside of disappearing messages) - to allow chat backup to other drives or apps or make it easier to use
Horrible, horrible, horrible. Given that a lot of WhatsApp users, use it because they might travel a lot internationally. They might be in different countries and having this app makes it easier to communicate with family and friends when abroad. Of course the way they have the app designed you might be similar situation to me where your contacts from your WhatsApp AREN’T able to message you, but you are able to message them. When I had this issue, I tried to get help from WhatsApp, and I only got generic robotic responses. They don’t have a customer support phone line. The worst part is from to my contacts and it looks like I’m receiving all of their messages (when I am not). And to those that say well, you’re not paying for it I would argue I would happily pay for it if it meant the application worked as it is suppose to. WhatsApp absolutely does not care about the well-being of their app users. They are irresponsible and it’s egregious.
