Try Out These New Whatsapp Keyboard Features For Texting Messages

Technology has brought about a slew of changes around the world. Technology has taken over as a medium of communication. People had to rely on telegrams, faxes, and letter writing, to name a few, to communicate or move information from one place to another. As a result of technological advances, other types of communication have become more common: Since the advent of mobile phones, communication has become much more available. Social media handles such as Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp, and others can be used to send information. My post, on the other hand, will be based on recent developments in the use of Whatsapp. WhatsApp was founded by Brian Acton and Jan Koum, former employees of Yahoo!.WhatsApp was converted from a free to a paying service to cover the expense of sending authentication messages to users. The iOS version gained the ability to submit images in December 2009. WhatsApp was among the top 20 applications in Apple's App Store in the United States by early 2011.


After buying an iPhone and discovering the promise of the App Store, Koum and Acton started meeting with Koum's friend Alex Fishman in West San Jose in January 2009 to explore a new form of messaging app that would display "statuses next to individual names of the people." They realized that in order to expand the concept further, they would need the services of an iPhone developer. Fishman went to and met Russian programmer Igor Solomennikov, whom he introduced to Koum.

WhatsApp was created by Koum to sound like "what's up." He founded WhatsApp Inc. in California on February 24, 2009. When early versions of WhatsApp began to crash, Koum considered quitting and searching for a new job. Acton advised him to wait "a few more months." Much of the time, one will have to text a friend using the phone's keyboard. Thanks to some new features I found a few weeks ago and would like to share with you. Please join me to have a look at the procedure involved.
