Instant messaging app WhatsApp has been very crucial in bringing your family and friends together. Users can create a group on WhatsApp for easy and convenient communication. WhatsApp groups allow you to exchange messages with more than one person in one go, share photos, make announcements about any events and communicate important information regarding your workplace, school, or community.
