Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20hi everyone my name is Kevin today Iwant to show you how you can both getand also use whatsapp to stay in touchwith family friends and alsoacquaintances so first off what iswhatsapp well whatsapp is acommunication tool that allows you tosend messages to others it also allowsyou to call others and it also allowsWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40you to have video chats with others soyou can see the other person in realtime and with all three of thoseyou could either communicate with oneother person or with groups of people soyou have lots of options now whatsapporiginally comes from what's up as a wayto kick off of communication now why usewhatsapp there are many otherWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00communication tools out there whatsappis one of the most dominant and one ofthe most used communication tools andpart of the reason why is whatsappreally came to be during the time whenmost people use simply their cell phonetext messaging or their cell phonecalling to stay in touch with others nowat the time one of the problems was ifWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20you wanted to text message people a lotcell phone companies charged a lot ofmoney for that and one point in time itwas five ten cents per text message alsoif you wanted to call people in othercountries and this is still a problemtoday cell carriers charge a lot ofmoney to do that with whatsapp what theydo is they run through the data on yourphone so they don't charge you by phoneWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40call they don't charge you by textmessage in fact there's no charge at allit simply leverages your data and sothey got the cost so low so dramaticallylow to stay in touch with others peopleflocked to whatsapp now the second thingthat really drove whatsapp success iswhen you sign up for whatsapp you enteryour phone number and by entering yourWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00phone number what they do is that's yourunique identifier on whatsapp and sowhen you join what's happened you launchthe app what they'll do is they'll lookat all the contacts on your phone andall their phone numbers and then it'lltake those phone numbers to look at allthe whatsapp members and see if thereare any matches when you start usingwhatsapp what happens then is you haveWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20this immediate network of people youcould call now those two things reallyhelps propel whatsapp to become one ofthe dominant messaging playersalright well enough talk why don't wejump in and I'll show you fourstop how you can get what's happened theway we're gonna get whatsapp is on aniPhone which I have today we're gonna goto the

whetheryou're on an iPhone or an Android phoneis pretty similar so either way you'llbe able to follow along so what I'mgoing to do is first off we're gonna goI'm gonna click into the App Store andwithin the App Store the easiest way toWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00get to whatsapp is to simply search forwhatsapp and so in the bottom right handcorner I see the search icon or themagnifying glass I'm gonna go ahead andlet's click on that and I'm gonna clickinto the search field and now I'm simplygoing to type in whatsapp you could typeit as one word you don't need any spacesno apostrophes simply

  1. I love using WhatsApp to call , text family and friends all around the world for free. One feature that I use everyday is that you can send large files through WhatsApp , without having to compress them. You can also text while you are flying with Delta and SouthWest airlines for free ( you can only text and not talk while you are in the air ). I did it at 40,000 feet and it worked great.

  2. Thanks, I have been looking for a chat app. But I don't like the thought that when install this,
    It searches your contact list.
    Any way to work around the contact search on your phone?
