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.

Banning issue
I've been randomly banned from WhatsApp and when i emailed them i received this email : Our system flagged your account activity as a violation of our Terms of Service and banned your phone number. Your account will remain banned as a result of the violation. I've done nothing wrong and WhatsApp is my main messaging and communication app, I 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, I’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. Please WhatsApp team if you read this help me

Never seen a more garbage communication app
Just to clarify I have been using WhatsApp for several years, if I had to guess it would be over 4 years, I have plenty of friends that use it and swear by it but I cannot fathom how frustrating it is to use sometimes. I came on here to express one thing and one thing only. Many of my colleagues use this app to video chat and to send text. I have added many contacts using WhatsApp however when I try to send a message or call these new contacts i am left with only inviting them to use the app, rendering the app completely useless at times. Allow me to specify my problem. Say for example I added a new phone number in my contacts list. I close the app to then open WhatsApp, I try to search for the new contact. I find the name, but when I try to send a message the only choice I have is to invite. This is mostly frustrating when I first add someone but I have contacts from a year ago that still need an invitation when they so clearly use the app on a daily basis. As long as this problem persists I don’t see myself using the app long term, if it wasn’t for this issue I would be ecstatic about the development. For now I’m disappointed and at a loss of words for how I would feel going forward.

Group management a painful flaw
Whatsapp is a wonderful app that I have used on a daily basis for years. but it has one abysmal defect. For years it has been difficult, if not impossible to easily list the groups that you are a member of. As a result, duplicate groups get made because people forget that a similar group had already been created in the past, and there is no easy way to quickly list and edit the groups you are member off. There are hacks you can find on the internet to get around this problem, but for heavy users like me who belong to dozens of groups, this is a source of endless frustration. This last version finally offers a partial workaround, that is that in the new communities section you can pretend to create a new community and see in the process a list of the groups to which you have admin privileges. But this is just another work around, and it does not show you the groups that you are only a member of. For such a mature program to lack such a basic feature passes understanding. If this was 1.0 version of the software I’d give it 4 stars. But for a program that’s been on the market for years, this omission is inexcusable, especially considering that competing platforms allow you to manage groups with ease.

Random permanent banning
I opened WhatsApp and saw that my account was banned from using WhatsApp. I was given two options: submit a review or change my number.I tried to fight it but they were horrible in terms of helping or explaining. I barely use WhatsApp so I didn’t see how I was violating their terms. I submitted a review and after 3 days they told me the ban will stay. I submitted a second email asking them to reinstate it as I use WhatsApp for work, personal, and medical. They came back with a vague reason of why my account was banned and that it will not be lifted and to essentially not contact them again. Weeks later I found out someone had stolen my number and was using it on a third party messaging app. In high hopes I submitted another review stating the new findings above and they ghosted me. The only option I was given was to change my number to continue using WhatsApp. Obviously that is not the best option as I have a lot of other accounts and records linked to this number. This whole experience was awful so why would I change my number just to continue using this app. This app is not worth it as I’m seeing a lot of other reports and reviews of other people randomly banned with little to no help.

WhatsApp is such an amazing app and I use it all the time, it’s great for communicating 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 🙏🩷

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.

Won’t restore my data
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.

WhatsApp still the best green app
Please I’m giving WhatsApp 4star 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 and let’s enjoy your handiworks together. Big love to Meta and Mark Zuckerberg

To the owners of WhatsApp, please i need you to do an upgrade on the backup plan for WhatsApp. You own Facebook, Instagram and Messenger app. The backup plan for these apps are awesome, where you just log in and get all information safe and intact. Even if you lose your phone, all you need is get a new phone and log in. Unlike WhatsApp, it's difficult to get your full backup plan, even if you backup every week in week out! You can't lose your phone or change your phone and guarantee a 100% full backup on WhatsApp. I lost my phone recently and i lost all files, even when i did backups every week, it didn't upload any information i needed. Please make WhatsApp like Messenger and Instagram, where you'll just add your number and password, then you log in with all information intact. Even if you lose your phones and you don't have your friends and family contacts anymore, with just a proper login, you can get their numbers back, safe and intact. Then you can save those numbers back on your phone Thanks, this is my opinion

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.

WhatsApp- A Great End to End Encryption Platform
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

Awful old and unsafe.
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.

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.

Requested access to photos
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.

Camera takes fuzzy photos every time
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.

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.

Bluetooth/Airpod mic update suggestion
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!!

Splitting long videos for WhatsApp status
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

From Bad to Worse
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.

Plenty of room for improvement
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.

Just a minor issue that’s really problematic
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.

Too easy to call people by accident
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!

WhatsApp freezing on iPhone X
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.

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 🙏🏾

They Now Banned Phone Numbers Everyday
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.

I’m overwhelmed to be able to connect to the people that mean the most to me. I had a big lost with 5 family members 2 friends and my dog. Was so lost and alone. A wonderful young man and his brother that worked with my brother in law stopped by to check on me. Then found out my husband passed too. They came to see if I was ok. Well they jumped in and did so much for me. They went to Mexico for their mother’s birthday. They invited me but I wasn’t well enough. So we can communicate and I get checked up on. They have become my family. They would be here ASAP if I needed them. Thank god we are able to keep in touch. I can’t wait to see them as well as keep in touch with their family. I’d be lost without them. I’m grateful to be able to have your service. Thank You, Paulette

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

Best App Ever!
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!

Banning Of Numbers
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??

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…..

Definitely set 2FA !!
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!

Broadcasting Should Be Made Easy
#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

Not impressed
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!

Don’t update... Am begging you
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

Not opening a chat
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.❤️

Love Everything except...
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!

Needs 1 change
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 Changed for the Better!!
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

Privacy concern
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.

reaction emotes on notifications
I've been using WhatsApp for a while now and I love the app. However, there's one feature that I think would greatly improve the user experience, and that is the ability to add reaction emotes on notifications. With this feature, users would be able to quickly react to messages without having to open the app, making it easier to manage conversations while driving or in other scenarios where opening the app is not feasible. I believe this would be a valuable addition to the app and would greatly improve the overall user experience. Thank you for considering my feedback. I look forward to seeing this feature added in the future.

Customer support is NON EXISTENT!
Edit: was asked to contact their development support!! Guess what?? I got the same automated nonsense replies!!! ABSOLUTELY FRUSTRATED!!! I have been using WhatsApp for years to be honest but recently my back up feature just stopped working it would be stuck at “preparing” for hours and even a WHOLE DAY!! I am running latest iOS version; the app is up to date; I have tons of free GB in my iCloud+ , my iCloud Drive is on (tried the part about turning off and turning on again) but STILL no back up !! Even tried deleting the whole WhatsApp out of my frustration and isolation and then starting new from scratch ! STILL did not work ! Lost all my conversations and STILL no back up is working !! Through all these steps contacted support and all I get are simple two cents replies : “we will check with concerned technicians” / “send screen shots” / “we will get back to you” etc etc Not much help there ! At ALL!! Been weeks Still nothing ! Really disappointed !

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

PLEASE READ I NEED TO KNOW IF THOS IS JUST ON MY PHONE..... So I really love the app, there’s nothing really wrong with it except that, well, idk if it’s just a bug in my phone or if it was the recent update... but when I enter the app it takes a looong time to actually be able to enter the app. Let me explain... when I enter the it’s just few miliseconds till the app randomly kicks me out, and the worst part is that it’s not only once, at least TEN TIMES till I can actually use this app. Sometimes I even have to turn off my phone just to send a message. Since I’m from another country I don’t use the message app, so WhatsApp is the only way to fast communicate with someone. Some people I know also have the same problem so I don’t think it’s just my phone. Please let me know if this is a bug on my phone or it was a problem with the update.

I do not like the fact that u guys can just band people for no reason and my WhatsApp I had before was just close friends and family my number was band for a large amount of reports and my personal people will come to me if there’s an issue they won’t report me I am a mom of 3 and I have a clean record very civilized and family oriented I am disappointed in the way I was dealt with and it’s unfair for a person with good morals values and standards have to deal with the fact WhatsApp also messages me saying my number was reported but can’t show no evidence of this so call crime I did when in fact it’s a crime to block someone number and never investigate saying they have to protect the persons who reported me and can’t show me where I went wrong on WhatsApp so my number was deactivated because of something I have no proof of doing I am an honest lady not fake and not spamming on WhatsApp very unprofessional
