About WhatsApp and its features
WhatsApp is by far the most popular instant messaging app in the world, with more than a billion active users enjoying the application daily. Facebook bought WhatsApp from its founders in 2014, and since then, the app has significantly grown in popularity.
That’s not a surprise because many features have come to WhatsApp since Facebook purchased the app. And WhatsApp continues to grow and expand its list of functions and features.
WhatsApp is free to use, and it allows users to send unlimited messages, share files (images, videos, documents, and so on), conduct voice and video calls, leave voice messages, and send or receive offline messages.
Besides, WhatsApp also supports group chats, and the process of signing up for the platform is straightforward. All you have to do is choose a username (doesn’t have to be your real name), type in your phone number, confirm it via a code received in an SMS, and you’re good to go. No passwords are needed for you to use the application.
And let’s not forget that we also have WhatsApp Web, a web-based variant of WhatsApp that works inside any browser and keeps us connected with our contacts even when we’re working on a computer.
What’s new in WhatsApp 2.19.291?

Besides, the latest WhatsApp 2.19.291 update comes with performance and stability improvements and some bug fixes.
