How to Use Whatsapp – Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

What is Whatsapp?

WhatsApp is a cross-platform mobile messaging app that allows you to exchange messages without paying for SMS or MMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for Android, iOS, BlackBerry OS, and Windows Phone. It’s like the text message (SMS) service you’re used to, but with you and your contacts in control. WhatsApp Messenger is entirely free, and there are no ads or anything like that. It also works on tablets.

Why Another Messaging App?

If you’re already using a smartphone, the chances are that your phone comes with a built-in messaging app (like Hangouts or Messages). You’ll probably find these apps to be very powerful. However, the problem with these apps is that they require your contact list to be centralized somewhere else – such as Facebook or Google Plus. This means if you want to interact with your friends who use different services than yours, you would have to add them all up and keep checking which ones they use so that when it’s time for you to send them a message, you know which app to use.

How is this app is different?

This app doesn’t require that your contact list be centralized on some other service, so it’s free of any company’s oversight or influence. This also means that there are no ads in the app and no spam either since this app doesn’t have access to your conversations or contacts. You can choose to share things with specific people or groups rather than broadcasting them out to everyone you know on Facebook or Google Plus, keeping your social circle more private. That also means nobody knows who your friends are unless you tell them yourself – this extra privacy comes at the cost of the convenience of letting the service track who all your friends are without asking for your help.

How secure is App?

WhatsApp provides end-to-end encryption, meaning that no one can read your messages except for the people involved in the conversation – not even WhatsApp employees. This way, nobody can use your contact list or address book to send you spam or sell you things (which is very common with other services). They also don’t record your conversations, so they can’t hand them over to law enforcement either. Even if the service were subpoenaed by a court somewhere, all they could provide would be encrypted data.

Okay! How do I get it?

First off, download it from https://www.whatsapp.com/ on your device. It works on Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry OS (although the last one is more of a legacy support thing). After installing it, launch WhatsApp Messenger and follow the instructions to sign up for an account.

How to Use Whatsapp -How do I start using Whatsapp?

Start with adding your friends! When you send someone a message for the first time, they’ll get a notification that you want them to add you back (because they need your phone number to find and talk to you). For example:

If they already use Whatsapp: They’ll get a notification from WhatsApp saying something like “John Smith wants to be your friend on WhatsApp.” They can then tap ‘Yes’ or ‘No,’ and they’re done! If they don’t use Whatsapp: They’ll get a notification from WhatsApp saying, “John Smith wants to be your friend on WhatsApp. However, you do not have this application installed.” They can then choose ‘Install’ or ‘Not Now’ – If they decide to install, the app will open up after being downloaded for them to add you back.

If their phone number is already associated with an existing Whatsapp account, sending them a message will automatically add each other so that both of you can start talking right away.

Wait… I already have several contacts on my phone’s built-in messaging service! How do I switch?

First off, download it from https://www.whatsapp.com/ on your device. It works on Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry OS (although the last one is more of a legacy support thing). After installing it, launch WhatsApp Messenger and follow the instructions to sign up for an account.

How do I delete my account?

WhatsApp does not provide any way to delete your account from their servers – Instead, they encourage you to leave the app installed but stop using it – eventually, you will stop receiving messages from people trying to talk to you over Whatsapp. If that doesn’t work for you or someone has linked your phone number with another service that won’t let go quickly (like Facebook), please try this route.

I still don’t get it – what can this app do?

WhatsApp Messenger is designed to replace your default messaging app on Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry OS (although the last one is a legacy support thing). That means you’ll be able to send text messages to other users using WhatsApp like usual while having access to all the extra features like group chat, photos/video sharing, and sending contacts between devices. It also works cross-platform, allowing everyone in your conversation list, regardless of whether they use an iPhone or an old Nokia flip phone from 2007 – it just uses their 10 digit phone number. Also, since Whatsapp doesn’t use SMS but instead uses data connections for sending messages, it can be used on your phone’s data plan.

Whatsapp seems to use a lot of battery power…

WhatsApp Messenger is not the only app that runs in the background – for example, browser apps like Chrome or Firefox aren’t closed when you close their window. Services like Gmail refresh their content every so often to get new mail notifications. Anyways, to conserve battery life when using WhatsApp, keep these tips in mind: * Turn off media sync (for data-intensive stuff like photos & videos) * Don’t set frequent status updates since they cause the app to run every so often. * Close all chats you aren’t actively looking at (they’ll stay in memory until the other person sends something new or you exit Whatsapp) * Turn off the ‘Last Seen’ feature (this way, people cannot see when you last used Whatsapp) * Only use it when necessary.

Whatsapp is draining my battery / using too much data! Help!

First off – make sure auto-sync for WhatsApp is turned off as it uses a lot of data by updating your contact list every so often and downloading any media shared by users on your contact list. Try these suggestions if that doesn’t help: * Don’t keep frequent status updates as they drain battery life even if you’re not actively looking at them on screen. * Closeout all conversations you’re not currently in to save some memory and CPU time * Turn off media sync for data-intensive content like photos & videos

I don’t have enough space on my phone’s internal storage to install WhatsApp! What do I do?

Whatsapp only requires 4 MB of disk space to be installed on your Android device – this may depends on what type of phone you’re using, the version of WhatsApp you had downloaded, and whether or not you had uninstalled it after previously installing it before. If you still need more space, try these tips: * Use an SD card (make sure it’s formatted to FAT32 first) * Uninstall some apps that are taking up lots of space (like games) * Clear out your cache folder by deleting old files that aren’t needed.
