Whatsapp It continues to be the most used instant messaging application in Peru and the world. This is because Meta, the company owned by Mark Zuckerberg, often adds interesting functions that are often useful. One of them, for example, allows Android users to read messages received, even from groups, without having to enter the platform. This way, your friends won’t know you’re ignoring them and you can reply whenever you want.
Often, WhatsApp tricks circulating on social networks require users to download third-party apps, which add new functions to the platform.

It doesn’t matter what brand your cell phone is, it can be Samsung, Xiaomi, Motorola, Oppo, Honor, Vivo, etc., if it uses the operating system developed by Google, you can use it.
