The company has been steadily expanding features over the last year. For example, you can now share photos in albums and even put filters on your pics within the app itself. Video and group messaging has also been added.

The best part about all of this is ithe app is based on Wi-Fi. You don’t have to worry about roaming fees, getting a cellular plan abroad, or an international calling rates. Just download WhatsApp and stay connected with everyone that matters to you. 

The 1.3 billion monthly active users WhatsApp announced in conjunction with its one billion daily active users even tops even Facebook Messenger’s 1.2 billion monthly users.
