I'm waiting for a universal app that covers features similar to BBM's, but an independent one that everyone will use regardless of what platform/phone they have.
I recently heard of one called Whatsapp that supposedly is becoming popular.

They've been saying it for a long time, but I'm not sure it's coming too soon. I've seen theories suggesting that RIM is stringing their customers along, by making them think BBM will launch on other platforms as well, when really RIM is dead afraid of a mass-exodus if they release BBM elsewhere. I think this has even been discussed on DDF.

I think all it will take is a good messaging app out there.

I agree, I don't thomk RIM will ever release something like this as BBM is IMHO there lifeline.

Just to note, KIK messenger (available for Iphone and Android) which operates the same way that BBM does, was available for three weeks on the blackberry. After three weeks and 3 million downloads RIM took them off the market and banned them from blackberry.

Besides for the slowness, which probably wouldn't be a problem on a faster phone, does it have good features?
Any that BBM has over it?

In a nutshell, RIM will never ever allow anything like this, simply because a vast amount of there costumers are not ditching their blackberry for a more trendier IPhone or Android, is only because of BBM

1. Delivery/read confirmation.
2. You can see when the person you're chatting with is typing.
3. You can send attachments.
4. You can invite multiple people to a chat.
5. Uses your data, so not limited (like SMS) and can be used across borders with no int'l sms fees.
6. Offers IM-like features, such as statuses etc.
7. You can send a ping/buzz. (some BBM users find this to be annoying, so less of a feature for them)
And others...

I'm not saying these features are exclusive to BBM, but with BBM they are packaged well and it works great and doesn't hog resources.

Good thing you had this disclaimer, otherwise I'm sure you would've been "attacked" by a buncha people maybe even including myself ;D).
The only thing that's unique about BBM is the amount of users it has, and although there are similar or better messaging apps out there, most of them are lacking actual commonality.

Agreed. They got a move on things already, but not fast enough. Once their QNX-based OS launches I think things will start looking better, if they still have any marketshare/mindshare left.

I am used to their interface/os/eco-system, and the way they have everything packaged/integrated works better for me than anything else.

Certainly better than anything I can get without paying Sprint's rip-off $10 smartphone tax.

Google talk on BB works ok, I don't suffer from the resources.

By the way, does anyone know a program for BB that allows me to call via wifi? Very important when in roaming.

I've been told to install tring-me. Still didn't manage to make one call with it.

T-Mobile USA had a feature called UMA/Hotspot@Home on some of their phones, including Blackberries, that allows you to call via wifi and use your minutes bucket. It's pretty amazing, as it even works internationally. They may have discontinued this service for new customers though, surprisingly, there wasn't much interest in it.

WhatsApp is going to cost us money soon. The only way that it will stay free is if you are a frequent user i.e. you have at least 10 people you are  chatting with. To become a frequent user send this message to 10 people who receive it (2 ticks) and your WhatsApp logo should turn Red to indicate a frequent user.

Whatsapp is basically a glorified text-massaging app which is buggy and drains battery life.

The best messaging app by leaps and bounds is Kik (http://kik.com). Its effectively BBM for all smartphones (in fact it was created by a former BBM developer (http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=17773963&authType=NAME_SEARCH&authToken=efCr&locale=en_US&srchid=005c6adb-6dfe-43c0-9568-c7793df61c58-0&srchindex=1&srchtotal=10&goback=%2Efps_PBCK_*1_Ted_Livingston_*1_*1_*1_*1_*2_*1_Y_*1_*1_*1_false_1_R_*1_*51_*1_*51_true_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2_*2&pvs=ps&trk=pp_profile_name_link)).

Not so clear about what you're asking. It works for the big 5 smartphone platform. You download the app then add contacts through email or user name. To add someone they must have kik also, otherwise you can invite them to download it.
I was worried about losing bbm when i ditched bb for nexus, but kik replaced it perfectly.

Methinks he's asking if Kik is interoperable with other services, not sure which he's referring to, could be anything from Facebook Chat to AOL IM to Gchat to iMessage.

From what I've seen on the Kik site, the answer to his question is no.

I'll be happy to test out Kik with you.

BBM is native to the BB platform, so it's integrated more tightly than other messaging apps. Also bear in mind that if you were ditching BB then your profiles on Android (for example) would work differently anyway.

Do you have a volume icon? When you click it and scroll to the bottom, does it let you edit the different profiles (it might called them something else, I mean the Loud, Normal, Silent, Vibrate etc. volume options. If you have that place to edit them, you can edit the IM/BBM section to have it act as you'd like.

If you have that place to edit them, you can edit the IM/BBM section to have it act as you'd like.
:) thank you so kindly! - i never managed to get passed the "only phone calls" setting but i went further down and "edit profiles" is there!

Attaboy. Does anyone who moved from BB to Android know if Andriod's profiles are as customizable as BB?
Title: Whatsapp!
Post by: Cbs on March 26, 2012, 11:38:42 PM
My cellphone provider told me that on my BB data plan it gives me unlimited data for BB apps. (email, fb, Gtalk, bbm) - they told me that whatsapp is not considered a BB app. and i have 50 MB free of internet so either browser or whatspp (or any other app) can use it up.

my question is, how do i know how many KB or MB a whatsapp msg uses? obviously depending on the wording etc.. but how do i know that?

on a side note: what else is considered a bb app?

Im sure Whatsapp uses Unicode, so every character is between 1 Byte and 4 Bytes. There is also overhead in the transfer, meaning even if you send a message with 1 character in it, it may very well be using more then 1KB. But in any case 50MB won't be easy to reach with just text communication.

Figured there was overhead. Never new that unicode uses more. I guess there are more than 0xFF characters?

Yup. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mapping_of_Unicode_characters)
Quote
Unicode’s Universal Character Set has a potential capacity to support over 1 million characters. Each UCS character is mapped to a code point which is an integer between 0 and 1,114,111 used to represent each character within the internal logic of text processing software (1,114,112 = 220 + 216 or 17 × 216, or hexadecimal 110000 code points).

As of Unicode 6.1, released in January 2012, 249,763 (22.4%) of these code points are assigned, including 110,181 (9.9%) encoded characters, 137,468 (12.3%) reserved for private use, 2,048 for surrogates, and 66 designated noncharacters, leaving 864,349 (77.6%) unassigned.

Unless you can find an app for that your probably out of luck, apps all use different amounts of data.

I do use Android, and it works terrific, but I still need the ability to communicate to all platforms. Hence kik loses so many points for its reliability issues. I pray that one day they'll get a better developing team to take of the issues.

Tip about WhatsApp: You do not need to have cellular service on the device you wish to use (at least not on Android), just sign up witha different number. That number will then get a text with a code. Whats App will display a message that it cant verify, so you can click Call Me, then just enter the code that you got , and you will be registered on WhatsApp with the phone number you used.

On the iPhone there is no free one year trial, just a one time $1 fee. So if anyone with an iPhone is on there, they are keeping the app.

Anyways, if you ask me, the messaging app wars are over, and whatsapp has already claimed victory. And this is coming from a full time kik user.

Great Mashal with the chocolate.

I agree this app is somewhat buggy, on my previous BB, it drained the battery, and I stopped using it after a few days. 

Now on BB 9930 its great. I chat with people all over the world, I have a few chat groups... I use this app a lot daily.

I used to not like paying for apps, but really what's the big deal about paying typically $1-3 on an app that will be used, and convenient for yourself. You'll buy a sod from a soda machine for $1.5 - when of you could've bought it for $.50 if you bought a case and schlepped one along with you...

I'm also wondering about switching phones.

With BB if you are switching between phones, you could used the device switch program that will move over all your info. I am pretty sure that the what'sapp info has also moved.

My Q' is anyone that switched to the BB10 - (from a BB) where they able to move over their whatsapp chats?

Never chatted with them as it's a number that belonged to someone I knew and now it seems to belong to a new, unknown person. Hence why I want to delete it.

On iPhone:

Go to favorites tab, scroll up to the top and pull down
This will refresh the contacts
Alternatively, completely close the app and then reopen it
This should also refresh the contacts

IIRC that's not possible, at least not seamlessly.

I tested it a few months ago, even to just have 2 iDevices (iPhone + iPad) logged in to whatsapp so I could reply from my iPad instead of my iPhone and it wouldn't allow. It basically wanted me to give priority to one of the devices, and it would log the other one out.

I was able to get it running on the second device, using a different phone number, but that's obviously not what you're looking for.

There are some options available if you're just looking for the convenience of texting from your computer (not specifically whatsapp).
Basically you get to do all your texting from an online interface, instead of picking up your actual phone and using the little buttons.
Both the computer and phone need to be on the same network in order for it to work.

It's safe. All it's looking for is your contact list so it can match with other people using the whatsapp service so you can contact them.
It's like using a photo editing app and it needs permission to access your photo album to find your data to work with.

You have to find the whatsapp folder. In there there is a folder called databases. That is where you have to move the most recent .db.crypt file from your old phone.

Yes, activate your phone number on an iPhone that already has Whatsapp installed, open whatsapp, register that whatsapp to your number, change your number back to your Android. You should have another year of whatsapp for $0. I did that last year, it worked.

How would that work?
If 1 carrier would try that, it would piss-off the customers, causing many to leave.
The only way it could've worked, is if all carriers would simultaneously block Whatsapp,  which is very unrealistic.

it's not about the 99c per app, nor the ads that they can get -
It's about owning all the coders, and the "What's App" technology, and using these and their followers as a springboard to 'bigger and better' things....

It cost Whatsapp $10mil to build, how it can possibly be worth so much more. The only difference between it and a clone is the critical mass.

It's the originality of the program and the creators that give it the value -- They still have tons of potential
to build upon this - based on the super successful program, the 100s of millions of followers,
and the unlimited power of mobile communication!

Yes, there's a ton of potential, and yes, it's a lot money and it's overpaying -- but, they have the money,
and they have the interest and abilities in continuing to grow, so why not pay to own a hugely popular competitor with tons of future talent!?

I'm still not sure why everyone is getting all upset about this. Facebook makes money the longer people are on it. More time sent on FB browsing = more money for FB. But Fb has a serious problem in that people go on, scan their page and go off. They need a reason to keep people on the site. Now instead of going off of FB to text with friends, you can do it on FB. FB tried doing this with messenger, but it is not as god, plus messenger only works with FB friends while whatsapp works with your phones entire contact list. Which is another added benefit for FB. Getting ahold of your phones contacts is just another piece in the puzzle for FB to add to their profile of you, which it can then use to target adds.

i'll tell you all a funny story which has to do with flyertalk: i am actually flying to Barcelona for MWC right now using the M&M miles award ticket (i am posting this from LH455 flight)... i obviously got these tickets many months ago - i prefer to fly using miles when i can to save company money. as you know, award ticket inventory is limited and last minute changes are nearly impossible... and this is where it gets cute:

we announced the deal with Facebook on wednesday after the market closed. during the process, we realized there was a chance we might not be able to get the deal wrapped up and signed on wednesday and it could delay.

when the risk of the delay became real, i said: "if we don't get it done on wednesday, it probably wont get done. i have tickets on thursday to fly out to Barcelona which i bought with miles and they are not easily refundable or even possible to change. this has to be done by wednesday or else!!!"

...and so one of the biggest deals in tech history had to be scheduled around my M&M award ticket :)

Whatsapp employees own a piece of the company.

How much?

Forbes' Parmy Olson reports: "Early employees are said to have comparatively large equity shares of close to 1%."

Ready to have your mind blown?

1% of $16 billion is …

… $160 million.

It's shocking that someone who can purchase thousands of private jets would make his mileage ticket a factor in completing a $19B deal in time!
(yes, like Dan, he's a nice guy who's business is built on helping people; he's a real mentch, however, it's also a good way to seal the deal the deal right away!)

You do understand that $20MM in company top-line revenue in a business that has multiple partners and investors isn't the same as having $20MM in your bank account, right?

Judging from his personality I doubt he took much if anything out from the company (which would just hinder growth).
Title: Re: Whatsapp Master Thread

It's a trip for the company, it's got nothing to do with dividends.

If he actually risked a $19b deal over a $20k ticket then of course he's a nutcase. But sometimes it's good to have deadlines.

He said that the company didn't pay for travel, they always used miles.
Perhaps it's his food stamp upbringing but there's something to be said for frugality.

Obviously he wasn't truly going to risk a $19B deal over some miles.  It was just impetus to get the deal done and as a kicker to save his LH ticket.
People are looking too deeply into a cute story.

A message from Whatsapp founder Jan Koum:

Every now and then Whatsapp will spread rumors about some policy change, or something that really makes no sense. We here at Whatsapp realize that while there are so many great features for this app, there is one glaring down side.

The world is full of IDIOTS and morons.

And too often, these people have your phone number. To remedy this problem we periodically start rumors and request that people send a message to 10 friends. You can then identify these people and use our "block" feature, to premptively prevent being bothered by these people in the future.

In addition, when a contact forwards one of our messsges to 10 or more people, his or her status will turn to a blue circle, so even if you didn't receive the message from him or her, you'll know to block them (just kidding about that part)

You're welcome,
Jan

With Koum and Acton working for free for the first few years, their biggest early cost was sending verification texts to users. Koum and Acton were using cutthroat SMS brokers like Click-A-Tell, who’d send an SMS to the U.S. for 2 cents, but to the Middle East for 65 cents. Today SMS verification runs the company about $500,000 a month. The costs weren’t so steep back then, but high enough to drain Koum’s bank account.

interesting but we're talking about the reverse. Most keyboards (including swype which is what i use) have a button that you press that allows for talk to text.
I misstyped I was referring to speech to text. And yes the microphone on the stock android keyboard is a separate program. Though in not sure about swype.

T-Mobile makes whatsapp a bit less relevant.

Dan mentioned something up-thread about the carriers being able to do something like this to whatsapp.

Quote
Over the last year, T-Mobile has increased the value of your Simple Choice Plan. And now, it's getting even better.
On March 23, you will get more high-speed data and international texting for no extra charge—no action required.   

   As a valued customer we want to give you these benefits at no extra cost:
•       Up to 500 MB of additional high-speed 4G LTE data per month, that you can use for your device and/or tethering (Smartphone Mobile HotSpot)
•       Unlimited international texting from the U.S. to 200+ countries
•       While abroad, you get unlimited data and texting in over 120+ Simple Global countries worldwide


And if you want more, it's a great time to go unlimited.
We always want you to have the best plan for your needs. If you've been thinking you need more high-speed data, we want to let you know that you can upgrade to our Simple Choice Unlimited Plan and lock in the low rate of +$20/month for unlimited high speed data. This offer is exclusively for you, so get it before the price goes up to +$30/month on March 23.

Here is my issue. I recently rebooted my phone and reinstalled WhatsApp. I'm using a Google voice number. After about three seconds of trying to verify the number it just says its unable to call number. with calling it says unable to call. With texting it says unable to verify. My Google voice number is working. I was even able to verify viber with it. If anyone knows a way to help fix this issue I would be very thankful.

Scam of the Week: "Whatsapp Gold"

A new scam is doing the rounds. "Cyber criminals have released a fake "Gold Edition" version of the very popular Whatsapp messaging app, and it is being pushed via social networking websites.

This bogus version promises exclusive features like custom backgrounds and emoticons, but it actually subscribes you to high-cost messaging services that rips you off with $2 per text you send.

"This may also happen with the current texting-app you use, so do not fall for hacker tricks like this, which either drive up your phone bill, or download spyware or ransomware to your phone. The bad guys try to scam as many people as they can and promote that the app is available for both iOS and Android.

"Remember, legit smartphone apps do NOT ask for your mobile phone number and/or any other personal information so never give this out. Think before you click (or tap)!"

My testing shows its a server update + software update. Server update allows you to get the blue checks, software update allows others to see blue checks for your messages.
I tested and confirmed this on 3 different phones.

They're not only not making money they're actually still loosing money.

I think Koum said at the Re/Code conference  last month that since FB bought them they're focused only on growth not on money..
Why FB bought it then if it doesn't turn in a dime ?? Well #1 (long term): potential/ads, and #2 (short term): user date.

NOT COMPATIBLE WITH IOS:
Quote
Today, for the first time, millions of you will have the ability to use WhatsApp on your web browser. Our web client is simply an extension of your phone: the web browser mirrors conversations and messages from your mobile device -- this means all of your messages still live on your phone.

To connect your web browser to your WhatsApp client, simply open https://web.whatsapp.com in your Google Chrome browser. You will see a QR code --- scan the code inside of WhatsApp, and you’re ready to go. You have now paired WhatsApp on your phone with the WhatsApp web client. Your phone needs to stay connected to the internet for our web client to work, and please make sure to install the latest version of WhatsApp on your phone. Unfortunately for now, we will not be able to provide web client to our iOS users due to Apple platform limitations.

We really hope you find web client useful in your everyday lives.

You can now use Whatsapp on your computer by following the following steps: Update Whatsapp to the latest version on your phone, then go to the menu and select Whatsapp web (a barcode scanner should turn on). Go to web.whatsapp.com on your computer and scan your the QR on your computer with your phone.

Dont think it works for iPhone.

While it's a big step forward, I was really hoping for something cloud-based, where both your pc and phone are syncing to something stored in the cloud. CMIIW, but here all it's doing is your browser is reading from your phone.
So although I'm very excited to finally be able to use whatsapp on my phone and pc simultaneously, I'm kinda disappointed with the implementation.

Got WhatsApp Web running on my iPhone  8)

#Jailbreak


ETA Instructions to get it set up on your device:

1. Download the .DEB file here. (https://t.co/5RBhVqr9IPhere)*
2. Upload to iPhone via iFile.. /var/mobile/Library
3. Click Package in iFile on device, select Installer.
4. Respring.
5. Load web.whatsapp.com on computer.
6. Open WhatsApp on computer, there should be a WhatsApp Web option in the Settings.
7. Scan QR code online.
8. Done.

*There is a package available on Cydia now for this {WhatsApp Web Enabler v.1.0-2}, but it doesn't work yet and WhatsApp will freeze when you scan the QR code online.
If you check Cydia it will say there's an update available, but double check that its a version higher then v.1.0-2 otherwise you'll lose the install you just did.

It is dead, as confirmed on xda. That means you cannot activate it but if you already have it you can keep it and use it. Those who don't yet have it have to wait untill they reopen the activation server.

We were obviously assuming that most people take the play store updates as they happen,  so makes sense to say that you can call anyone even if they don't have 551+. So let's rephrase it. Anyone with 528+ can receive calls. Your correct that if someone did not take a update then they won't be able to get calls on pre 528.

The really annoying part about this new calling feature is that you can't call someone who doesn't have it from within whatsapp anymore. IE, if I was having a conversation and I decided to call them instead of texting back, I would just click call and it would go through mobile. Now it says cannot call and I have to go to dialer and manually dial the person. Not a major deal but it adds a bunch of clicks.

I also found it to be annoying (a bit),
I used to always call thru the Whatsapp app.

Also the Quality of the Whatsapp call is (obviously) not as good as a regular call, so I "always" have to go out from the app to call.

How do I get my whatsapp conversations from an old phone to a new phone if none of them have an SD card?

If they're both androids with the same number you should be able to do it through a computer or probably even email the file to the new phone...just do a backup and copy over the newest version from whatapp/databases its called something like .db.crypt and then restore on the new phone.
edit: if I remember correctly you need to put the file into the root and then install the whatsapp on the new phone, could be that's changed now.

http://www.whatsapp.com/faq/en/android/20902622

For phones that have an internal memory / internal SD card (most Samsung phones have this), you will need to transfer the /sdcard/WhatsApp/ folder from your old phone to the same folder of your new phone. There are a couple of ways you can do this. You can use a file explorer or even transfer the backup files to your computer.

For all the apps you mentioned, it works best (or only works) if both people have the app on their phone.

Much more people actively use whatsapp vs. any other apps you mentioned, so it's a seamless integration for them.

For all the apps you mentioned, it works best (or only works) if both people have the app on their phone.

Much more people actively use whatsapp vs. any other apps you mentioned, so it's a seamless integration for them.

As of now, only certain people on android have it, and no iPhone, blackberry or windows phone support.
So to be better than the others it will take some time.

My iPhone WhatsApp history is currently several gigabytes in size, with several hundred thousand messages and media. :o I really want to clear everything and start over, since it's affecting my phone's performance tremendously, but I don't want to lose 2+ years of conversation and group history. I'm looking for a "comprehensive" backup solution (for iPhone) - i.e. one that will allow me to back up all my conversations to PC, exactly the way they look on the phone, with all media and voice notes embedded in the conversation.

When I email conversations to myself, for example, not all media ends up being included in the email, the conversation itself is a separate text file and the images are not embedded, etc. - I want something that will reproduce the entire conversation on my PC, the way it looks on my phone. The closest I found seems to be CopyTrans Contacts (http://www.copytrans.net/support/how-to-backup-whatsapp-messages/), as you can see from sample screenshot from their site:

(http://www.copytrans.net/support/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/ctc-exported-whatsapp-conversation.png)



However, I can't seem to get my phone to work properly with it (it keeps freezing/crashing), and also, it looks like they leave voice notes out completely.

So... anybody have any better ideas?

Thanks, but... it doesn't "export" conversations with the media in place. More importantly, it has a fatal flaw: in group chats, it doesn't say the name or number of who posted which message. Group chats look like a regular two-person chat with all of your messages on the right, and everyone else's on the left - but no way to determine who wrote what on the left side. Looks like all the messages are from the same person. :(

Back to the drawing board... any other suggestions?

-.5,
+ definitely does not always connotate 00 rather it represents whatever code "leaving the country" represents, for example in america if you were to call israel you would dial 011972580000000 so + would be 01 in that instance...
Title: Re: Whatsapp App Discussion Thread
Post by: Moishebatchy on June 08, 2015, 08:15:25 PM
In any case, WhatsApp requires a + in order to recognize the number, not 00 (at least on iPhone it's like that), standards notwithstanding.

try backing up your whatsapp folder on your sd card to your computer, then delete the folder and restart your phone.
if that doesnt work you might have to format the sd card
(but remember to back it up or you will lose everything)

There's a new feature, you can now star a message, not sure what exactly it does..

It's been on IOS for some time.

It allows you to save "important" messages to your "starred messages" folder.
Very useful in large group chats, instead of scrolling all the way back to find a message you want.

Only notifications for the one you're logged into at the time, which negates a lot of the usefulness. (I think i have a pretty dumb app that just switches back and forth and auto confirms the number for you. I'd like a more advanced app that tricks each WhatsApp into thinking that this is the only one installed on the phone. That should be simpler than using one WhatsApp number on two phones, although if it's just switching back and forth and auto confirming, it should be able to do that too.)

You have 2 options,  1 Google the app og-whatsapp and follow instructions how to install it,  or if you are rooted you can make 2 users on your phone (like it a pc)  ( search on XDA-DEVELOPERS how to do it)  and each user can have their own whatsapp account.

Can you get a voicemail? If yes just put in your American number and it will send a voicemail to your American number with the code and just listen to your messages and you'll get it.

Nope not strange at all you had an SD card correct? Whatsapp backed up your chats every day at 4 AM, if you register again with the same number it does not need another verification. It also restores the chats that were there from before.

It's outdated and ugly. For Android use either:

snaptube (http://www.snaptubeapp.com)

Both are nicer and more fluid in my experience.

I was not sure either, so I did a quick n' dirty speed test between tubemate & snaptube.

Downloaded the same 5:00 clip in 720p HD (61mb) over my WiFi.

Tubemate took 4:20, with speeds ranging from 0-7 Mbps.
Snaptube took 1:36, with speeds ranging from 1-13 Mbps.

Snaptube is still gets updated often as well.

Try both and see what works for you.

Making WhatsApp free and more useful

Nearly a billion people around the world today rely on WhatsApp to stay in touch with their friends and family. From a new dad in Indonesia sharing photos with his family, to a student in Spain checking in with her friends back home, to a doctor in Brazil keeping in touch with her patients, people rely on WhatsApp to be fast, simple and reliable.

That's why we're happy to announce that WhatsApp will no longer charge subscription fees. For many years, we've asked some people to pay a fee for using WhatsApp after their first year. As we've grown, we've found that this approach hasn't worked well. Many WhatsApp users don't have a debit or credit card number and they worried they'd lose access to their friends and family after their first year. So over the next several weeks, we'll remove fees from the different versions of our app and WhatsApp will no longer charge you for our service.

Naturally, people might wonder how we plan to keep WhatsApp running without subscription fees and if today's announcement means we're introducing third-party ads. The answer is no. Starting this year, we will test tools that allow you to use WhatsApp to communicate with businesses and organizations that youwant to hear from. That could mean communicating with your bank about whether a recent transaction was fraudulent, or with an airline about a delayed flight. We all get these messages elsewhere today – through text messages and phone calls – so we want to test new tools to make this easier to do on WhatsApp, while still giving you an experience without third-party ads and spam.

We hope you enjoy what's coming to WhatsApp, and we look forward to your feedback.

Ok. Then they will need to go the way of the Chinese whatsaap (forgot what it is called) amd actually get plugins for shopping and stuff. But it'll be hard, when you're used to living one way its hard for someone to change the way you do things (like a bidet, it just never became popular here)

I Think the concept was built on BBM, the idea is "Privacy" it's not stored on their servers (Not like Gmail that everything is hosted On Gmail's Servers ) the only use of their servers are only used to transport the messages encrypted until it reaches final destination

The default 3 columns should be Calls, Chats and Groups.

I see no need for "Contacts" to have it's own full tab, as I don't ever use it unless I'm making a new message, and there is a button for composing a message already. Pressing that should bring up the contacts page with a search bar.

In regards to UI/UX feedback, I find that tapatalk does a pretty good job at listening to user feedback
Waze second
And whatsapp an even more distant third.

What they are really after are the bug reports which are really important to them to get before they move to production.

That is why pressing the new message button should show you the contact list, with the focus on the contact search bar.

So if you want to browse pics, you can just hit "new message" and scroll down...

They have been rolling it out slowly over the past year.
Today marks the day when every WhatsApp client, regardless of the OS, can have full end-to-end encryption.

In fact, IIRC there already was a case where the authorities wanted to accessba suspect's WhatsApp, and the encryption was unbreakable.

the reason why it wouldn't be possible is because the new owner of this number will want to use what's app and it's taken by you, if your point is to keep old number so people could still stay in contact with you then your pretty much stuck unless you know who got the new phone and ask them for the code, or if wanting a second what's app just download one of the free talk and text apps on google play store and get a what's app code to verify the number from that app.

They have to actually give that particular number to someone else, and he has to download whatsapp. Not a stretch to think it can work for a while...It's been working for me for the last 3 months

So you change the number on the old phones WhatsApp to your new number. It will send a text message to your new number. You insert the the code. Then when you install WhatsApp on your new phone you put your new number in.( You can transfer your data as well... there are many ways )

it seems like he wants to have the old what's app number, by doing what you said will only give him his new number and all his previous history, but won let him keep his old what's app number!

If you change the number on an existing WhatsApp account I'm almost sure that they will automatically get your new number...

Or simple keep your what's app on the phone you plan on using and it will work perfectly,only after cutting off the service and you decide to switch phones so now you will cause the old number to be lost or just won't be able to transfer to a new phone without the verification code from the sms number, but as long as you keep the what's app on the phone you originally had then the what's app will work with wifi and after getting your new plan put your new sim in and have your old what's app number..(I am almost 99.9% positive this can be done, don't remember so clearly,but have had 2 what's app on one phone using two different numbers.)

WhatsApp support for mobile devices (https://blog.whatsapp.com/)

As we look ahead to our next seven years, we want to focus our efforts on the mobile platforms the vast majority of people use. So, by the end of 2016, we will be ending support for WhatsApp Messenger on the following mobile platforms:

BlackBerry, including BlackBerry 10
Nokia S40
Nokia Symbian S60
Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
Windows Phone 7.1
iPhone 3GS/iOS 6
While these mobile devices have been an important part of our story, they don't offer the kind of capabilities we need to expand our app's features in the future.

This was a tough decision for us to make, but the right one in order to give people better ways to keep in touch with friends, family, and loved ones using WhatsApp. If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone before the end of 2016 to continue using WhatsApp.

  • Contact Whatsapp Group Admin that you are leaving group as you would like to erase all group medias which is taking huge space on your iPhone or Android mobile phone. So request him to Add you back immediately after you leave the group
  • Before leaving the group, send Whatsapp conversation in email. which will send you all medias in your email for backup purpose
  • Leave/Delete and Exit whatsapp group
Ye, i saw that idea elsewhere as well, on some of these groups i very possibly wont be added back and how many times can i do that without annoying the admin...

Thanks for the reply!

Retarded why they had to stop support on BlackBerry smart phones, and a mnth before stop certain functions,
I guess it means back to BBM, ;)
Btw what is whatsapp Web?

It's meant to be used in the computers browser, and scan the barcode with Whatsapp app on the phone. It seems that you are trying to use it with the browser of the phone, not sure if there's a way for that to work.

I've never tried it, but technically if you open whatsapp web as desktop page you should get the QR code.
Print it out and then scan it in the whatsapp app....

Or just use a regular pc 💻 lol

If you get the QR code to be displayed and can somehow scan it, I don't see why it shouldn't work... But could be they are a few steps ahead of us

It is "meant" to be used on PC, and initially it even only supported specific versions of specific desktop browsers. But I'm not sure it won't actually work with a phone browser. Maybe try a printout which will be clearer.

BTW, have you tried installing the Android version of Whatsapp? On the Classic you can install/sideload Android apps.

Tried using my phone with the what's app Web barcode displayed in my browser while on desktop mode and used an S7 to scan it and had no luck picking up the barcode! Will try it the other way around with me scanning the barcode from the s7.

You have to scan the QR Code using whatsapp (go to menu, whatsapp web,  click the + button to open the scanner)

Tried using my BlackBerry classic as the pc with the barcode displaying and scanning it with the S7 which is near me but can't pick up the QR code.

I have this 3rd party app to download other apps like 7-11 and alike but didnt do that for what's app, whats app was downloaded from BlackBerry world, should it make a difference where I download it from?

This is the 3rd party application as you can see in the screen shot (called aptoide). (talking about this my 7-11 app just stopped updating so I tried updating it and now I have nothing working.

Barcode seems pretty clear to me.

I'm not familiar with Aptoide, but the Amazon App Store is a good source. Of course it would make a difference from where you're downloading it since the one you have from the BB World is being discontinued, while all these other app stores give you "Android" apps and they are not discontinued. (though I haven't tried the Android Whatsapp if it works flawlessly on BB 10.

ETA: I found several people writing that the Android Whatsapp does indeed work without a hiccup in BB10, one here http://utbblogs.com/whatsapp-isnt-going-anywhere/

I doubt that's true even If i sideload It with an application called snap to be able to download it directly from Google play store I don't see how it's going to change the look and features an app which has the same app on BlackBerry world! But I never tried so you may be correct.

It is not the same app, no relation between them! The one from BB World is meant for BB and will be discontinued, while the one you can sideload is a total Android app which works in BB10 too. It is installed difrently and works difrently.

You can even install it straight with the APK (this is the Android app package) which you can download from WhatsApp's own site. Here's how to do it https://help.blackberry.com/en/blackberry-classic/10.3.1/help/amc1404138561499.html and here is the file https://www.cdn.whatsapp.net/android/2.16.366/WhatsApp.apk

Yisroel Tech tried to help me with my what's app regarding the videos didn't really get a fix for the problem , I could receive but can't send any videos makes no difference what the size video is, would you know of a solution? 

I deleted my BlackBerry world version and downloaded the version yisroel tech gave me to download(android version).

I doubt that will happen as what's app is very into private and secure messages being sent, as if they were to implement this feature it would be against others privacy as you would erase messages on other members phones...
 Once a message is sent it's securely sent and no tampering with it, that way you know it is safe... at least this is how I look at it.

If you want the media to be transferred, I don't think so. I used wazzap migrator. ( They have a free version that doesn't transfer the media to test it )

In Settings the backup to Google Drive wouldn't be good enough?

So you need wazzap, plus another third party app to extract the whatsapp backup?

Don't remember exactly, but it needed to be via a computer. I was pretty shocked that there were no simpler methods

It is such a no brainer. How difficult would it be to add a "restore from icloud" button on Android, or a "restore from Google Drive" button on ios? Must be partisan politics.
