There will be moments in your life when you want to talk to someone but your network is down, or you've used up all your minutes, or you're beyond your network's coverage, and you can't send or receive any calls or messages. In those moments, WhatsApp is there to help. Public WiFi connectivity is so much more popular and accessible these days, so it won't be much of a problem to find a WiFi hotspot to send media faster than before, without any interruptions during the process. WhatsApp allows you to make a group conversation, something that none of the default messages applications offers.
