This course has lessons and activities to help you learn how to use the WhatsApp app on an Android or iOS smartphone. WhatsApp is a free app that you can use to make private voice and video calls, send text messages and media to your friends, family, and contacts. WhatsApp uses Wi-Fi or your phone’s data plan, instead of call time or texting through your cell phone plan. It can be a cheaper way to stay in touch with people, especially if they live in a different country.
