WhatsApp has over 1 Billion installs on Android phones and it is growing like crazy. The mobile app,
which is currently testing to bring calling feature to their app, it’s already there, is something almost every mobile manufacturer is shipping pre-installed on their mobile phones, WhatsApp.
One of the biggest reasons for its popularity is the ease of creating an account on WhatsApp. Your phone number is your username, and the password is a security code which WhatsApp automatically manages to verify when you give them your phone number if you are using that number on the device you are installing WhatsApp on.
