Install Whatsapp on Samsung Galaxy S8
Edited by Jay, Maria Quinney
WhatsApp is one the most popular free Instant Messaging apps available on the market today. Used by millions of people around the world daily, WhatsApp Messenger has gained an enormous userbase because of its; ease of use, various options, and end-to-end encryption. It will function with either mobile data or WiFi, which is excellent for both versatility and data usage efficiency. Because most native SMS apps require a data plan of some kind, WhatsApp makes an excellent alternative for those who are limited in their texting. In addition to the variety of user-friendly options, you can also use two-step verification, which allows you to set a pin, in the event you need to register your number again in the future.
In the following article, we performed a fresh install of WhatsApp Messenger on a Samsung Galaxy S8 running Android Nougat. We'll cover; the installation process, chats, status updates, calls, and also some key settings.
