The world’s most widely used messenger application, WhatsApp, has earned that status for good reason. It revolutionized the messaging industry by changing the way people could send and receive messages, using an internet connection instead of relying on the user’s data plan, like most messaging apps do, or the cell towers of the wireless carrier, as SMS messages do. This simple change has made a world of difference for people who live in countries where data plans and text messages are extremely expensive, and also for people who have family living in other countries, since WhatsApp allows users to send and receive messages internationally for free. It’s also great for keeping in touch with friends back home if you’re travelling overseas, since it will send and receive messages even if your SIM card isn’t compatible with the country you’re in, and even if you don’t have roaming service.
WhatsApp has all of the standard features you would expect from a messenger app, with a pleasant design that’s easy to use. Users can send and receive instant messages, pictures, videos, record audio messages and share their location with contacts. You can even make free voice calls using WhatsApp over the same internet connection, which means you’ll never have to pay extra for international calling again.

We’re simply going to download the WhatsApp application from the Google Play Store. You can go to the Play Store on your Samsung, and search under “Apps” for “WhatsApp”. Then tap to go to the WhatsApp product page, and tap “download”.

After Downloading WhatsApp for Samsung
As part of the account setup process, you will need to enter your mobile phone number, because your WhatsApp account will be linked to this number, with no extra usernames or passwords to remember. WhatsApp will verify your number by sending an SMS text message to your phone, but you don’t have to do anything; WhatsApp will detect the message automatically and continue with your account setup.
One really convenient feature of WhatsApp is that it searches your phone’s contact list for other WhatsApp users, and if it finds any, it will automatically add them to your WhatsApp contacts. You can also manually add or delete contacts anytime you want.
Another option, if you like having all of your stuff on multiple devices, is downloading the PC version of WhatsApp to your computer, which will allow you to access all of your messages on your desktop or laptop. The WhatsApp Web account will be linked to the account you just installed on your Samsung phone, so you can toggle back and forth anytime you need to.
