As we all know SMS allows you to contact your friends families and colleagues but its expensive, in large numbers. So we needed some free instant messaging services so Facebook launch Messenger and WhatsApp developed by some other people was acquired by Facebook later on after it’s launch . As here both the apps are free ,we can choose any one depending upon our requirements and also asking some simple questions to yourself “What your receiver uses ? “, “What’s easy for your friends to notice?” and excetra. Also there are many other apps which are free and are for instant messages but we will stick to this to as a topic says Messenger versus WhatsApp.

(2) Internet connection on Wi-Fi connection is necessary , without that your communication is not possible.
(3) To add any person in your WhatsApp inbox , you have to save his or her contact number first then only you will be allowed to add him or her in your WhatsApp inbox .
(4) Call quality is just ok , nothing good about that and also the video quality is not good it becomes blurry & shaky in video call and audio like is most common unfavourable error which you face.
(5) Video sharing is limited to 20 megabytes or it is increased now but not good enough for sharing good quality video.
(6) Images which you share to others are automatically compressed so sometimes it happens with the quality is harm.
(7) In some Middle East countries WhatsApp is banned so the working of WhatsApp in that region is not that good, your messages and calls will go astray sometimes.
(8) After restoring your WhatsApp, some photos and videos go away missing and WhatsApp is improving this day-by-day so you will be protected in near future.
