WhatsApp ​ 

WhatsApp is originally a mobile application: it provides a rich instant messaging platform, like iMessage for example, except that it works on both Android and iOS, is completely free of charge, and is encrypted end-to-end both on your mobile data and when the smartphone is connected via WiFi. For some time now, this mobile application has been accompanied by clients for PC and Mac and a web version. Enough to use your smartphone's WhatsApp account directly on your computer for added convenience.
