WhatsApp Messenger: Nokia Chat App

0 0

We all know that the most popular app for chatting is WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned messaging app. For it to be popular, it has to be compatible with a lot of platforms and among the lucky ones to get WhatsApp is also the Nokia phones.

Who wouldn’t want a quick messaging app to allow you to talk with friends or family, no matter what devices they use or what mobile providers they have? And it’s not just messaging. You can send pictures, files, videos and other attachments to an individual user or make a chat group conversation and interact with more people at the same time. Even if you cannot be available and check the app, it will record the messages that you have received and weren’t online and you can see them later.

All you have to do is download the app and introduce your phone number and that’s it. Your contacts from your account and your phone list will appear in the WhatsApp contact list and do much more than that. It will let you block contacts, keep a message history, customize notification sounds and more.

Latest WhatsApp Features

A new feature is sharing Live Location, allowing you to show a person or a group where you are in real time. You can enable or stop it anytime and it’s very handy!

Another feature that has just made its way through the latest updates is the ‘Delete for Everyone’ option, that will basically revoke a sent message. But it only works for the messages you have sent up to 7 minutes before deleting them.

You will, however, need an internet connection to use the app. So, if you have a Wi-Fi around or unlimited data, this app is the best messaging app you could have.
