Whatsapp for GALAXY S5 and S4

WhatsApp-for-SamsungWhatsapp software is an important tool to keep in touch with friends and family on a mobile phone. Like most other leading mobile platforms, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5 allow users to download and install the Whatsapp software.

To get started, click or tap on the Google Play Store app on your phone. This is one of the major pre-installed applications on your phone. Tap the search icon in the upper right hand corner and type Whatsapp into the search bar.

Next, tap on the Whatsapp icon which should be the first result of the search. Finally, tap on the install button and once the application has been installed, open the software.

One of the best features of Whatsapp is that all of your pre-stored phone contacts are automatically your Whatsapp contacts. As long as your contact has also installed Whataspp on their phone, you can immediately begin messaging them so their is no need to “Friend”, “Follow” or “Connect” with them.
