Whatsapp at a Glance

Here I am assuming you love Whatsapp and its features, actually its improbable I know you surely like it. As I told approximately more than 700 million people already using the Whatapp on their devices and its sooner going to get into 1 billion list. You might thinking Facebook and other social media are more popular than Whatsapp, let me clear one thing it took almost 12 years to get a tag of moderately important/essential website. It works smoothly on any kind of Smartphone platforms and it’s the easiest to use comparing to any other messenger. New features are rolling out like Whatsapp Call after facebook acquired Whatsapp. There are lots more chances to have Whatsapp in any other’s device rather another messenger so you can make Whatsapp call to them and the best thing is you don’t have to pay a single penny for that call, all you just need is internet data in your device.

If you have done with downloading then install the apk file using APK HANDLER tool
