There is no doubt that WhatsApp is one of the applications most used by the vast majority of users, either on the iPhone or any other device. However, it is also true that at the function level, the competition has been able to offer much more for a long time. It seems that they want to change this from Meta, and proof of this are the different functions that WhatsApp has been incorporating into its catalog for some time now.
