WhatsApp is a multiplatform messaging app that you can use to message, call, video chat, and more. This app makes contacting people internationally free instead of having to pay international fees for texting or calling a friend or family member in a different country.

The app has a profile picture just like most apps that connect you with other people. You may want to keep your profile pic updated or just like to change things up.
