This would give them some context for why they are important, and that will lead them to paying for more services like this – or so the hope goes."

Fishman found a Russian developer on Rent ACoder.com, Igor Solomennikov, and introduced him to Koum.
Koum named the app "Whats App" to sound like "what's up".
The oldest device capable of running Whats App is the Symbian-based Nokia N95 released in March 2007.
In August 2014, Whats App released an update to its Android app, adding support for Android Wear smartwatches.
The Whats App user's handset must still be connected to the Internet for the browser application to function.
All major desktop browsers are supported except for Microsoft Internet Explorer.
On February 26, 2016, Whats App announced they would cease support for Black Berry (including Black Berry 10), Series 40 and Symbian S60, as well as older versions of Android (2.2), Windows Phone (7.0) and i OS (6), by the end of 2016.
Whats App was officially made available for PCs through a web client, under the name Whats App Web, in late January 2015 through an announcement made by Koum on his Facebook page: "Our web client is simply an extension of your phone: the web browser mirrors conversations and messages from your mobile device—this means all of your messages still live on your phone".
The Whats App support staff announce that messages were encrypted in the "latest version" of the Whats App software for i OS and Android (but not Black Berry, Windows Phone, and Symbian), without specifying the cryptographic method.
