Either way, WhatsApp is a great communication tools for those with family that live outside the country. Not only does it allow you to make voice and video calls free of charge (as long as you have an internet connection), you can also send as many text messages as you’d like, keeping the conversations with family members rolling indefinitely. However, WhatsApp’s best feature is its group chat, which allows you to group all of your foreign friends and family in one place, so you can all stay in touch at the same time. Or, if you prefer to keep things simple, you can divide your family up into several group chats so it’s easier to keep track of.
The only downside to WhatsApp is that it costs money to install. While it’s free-to-use for the first year, you’ll have to pay a yearly subscription of 99p thereafter – make sure you save up!
