I have many thousands of inclusive texts and unlimited internet.
yeah but do you get free picture and video messaging, theo? eh?
If I need to send someone a picture I use the Instagram inbox thing.
I guess you just do it if you have that app on but it's only ever stuff of the child, which is why I just Instagram message it tagged for the family group.
If you think my Instagram feed is bad for photos of her you should see how many Direct Messages don't make 'the cut'!
that Instagram DMs don't work really.
Whatsapp is AMAZING for pictures. I have a group set up for family (on both sides) and it meant while my boyfriend's parents were on a cruise they were sending us all these pictures of them having a wonderful time. No words, just pictures. Proper heartwarming. I've also got in the habit of sending a lot of bike selfies to family. They *love* it.
I think I prefer Instagram because it seems to compress before upload. I stopped using FB for things like that so much because it seemed to take forever.
I assume Niki turned all that off. Then you don't get a notification and the only thing to tell you is if you go to the home stream there's an orange 1 in the top right.
I get that whenever I'm sent a DM...
your friends might not.
probs doesn't matter then, disregard.
Pointless. Build an iPad app whilst you're at it, you lazy dicks.
Seems like a solution looking for a problem to me
and copy and pasting links will be much easier. Been organising a stag do on whatsapp - this would have made life a lot* easier for me if it'd been around a few months ago
*ever so slightly
it routes it all through the phone
it says so many times in the signup process
see Chrome issue below.
I may switch sides on this now. That's a fairly big drawback.
to whatsapp messages via your computer rather than your phone, it's probably not for you
(you don't have to use it, do you)
if you're still surprised by PN getting histrionically excited over a small improvement in technology, you need to follow things more closely
so i'm pleased about this development
probably for the best. My productivity is dangerously close to zero as it is.
*deletes emails accounts, throws phone in bin, nails shut letterbox*
I tried to get this to work last night but couldn't figure it out
"sent from my web browser" sign off?
with the sign-off 'Forgive my briefness - sent from my commodore 128'
saves you taking your phone out of your pocket, you can text folk from your computer
but not quite as good?
and none of my friends have it
You had a chance and then marckee endorsed you.
So much easier than WhatsApp and more flexible.
but Telegram looks good on their website. Shame no one's using it (relatively speaking), as network effects > product quality.
pointlessly contacting cunts in a specific medium.
the continued success of WhatsApp remains a minor mystery.
But if it chins facebook off to fuck, then it's small mercies, I suppose.
What is this? 1998?
but it's not really suited to short instant messages between groups is it? I don't think I need to explain why.
I don't understand WHY people don't get that.
Email is perfectly fine for messages of any length between groups.
You just want new shiny.
imagine emailing someone to say "hi i'm here already" or "can you pick up some milk on the way home?" or something. utter madness
that banalities like that can't be done via SMS TXT MSG.
for stuff like "hi i'm here already" or "can you pick up some milk on the way home?"???
why would i revert to text when all my messages are on whatsappppy? therefore it's better for me to see the entire conversation.
literally the only person i text is jordan numbers because he doesn't have whatsapp
also can use whatsapp over wifi so in remote areas like the isle of shite people can still INSTANT MESSAGE me
to call or SMS TXT MSG someone INSTANTLY.
But it looks like you've gone too far and are beyond saving.
That app is bullshittery. And I don't need it because WHATSAPP.
1) messages are in the wrong order
2) got loads of To, Sent, Subject bollocks between messages
3) if two people reply to a message it creates a fork, so if you read back through the previous replies you might miss some messages
4) have to move between inbox and new message etc.
5) LOADS MORE
you're relying on that person having push notifications on for their email. which maybe they don't
and before you say USE TEXT: what about messaging foreign numbers and pictures?
SO MANY REASONS
but have push email turned off: don't exist.
Foreign numbers: ooh lala, email is fine.
Foreign pictures: what m
*Foreign pictures: what?
(my boyfriend is one of them)
i meant sending pictures to people
me having whatsapp means i can effectively text my pal who lives in berlin FOR FREE
I mean I have push email turned off for the reason I assume everyone else does/should: to stop my battery draining in a day.
But it doesn't seem like I can stop Hangouts from deciding it's turned on and receiving messages. A bit irritating.
WhatsApp uses absolutely bugger all data and battery.
because it's reaching out to the networks.
I didn't really want to sign out of hangouts as I wanted to use it quickly if I needed it. I'd just rather it wasn't always working. Especially as if my Gmail tab isn't on top at work, I get messages making my phone buzz even though I'm on my computer.
I use snapchat for sending dickpics abroad for free.
plus instant deletion is hardly handy is it?
It's completely changed how I communicate with people, especially family and friends abroad and I'd be completely fucked without it now.
And what a word it is. Probably the greatest invention of the 21st Century, if we're being honest.
upload it to DropBox and then finally have to share it with someone by getting the share link there.
Share folder once.
Add photos whenever.
email, text messaging, dropbox, Three's wifi text shite, but YOU ONLY NEED ONE APP FOR THEM ALL: WHATSAPPPPPPPPPPPPP
(I admit that the Three wifi app is cack)
instant messaging between people, groups, with pictures if you like, and SOUND CLIPS and video
Dropbox is God.
USB stick and send it to your loved ones by carrier pigeon?
But not before I took a photo of it, which auto-uploaded and was easily shared with your mother.
I just email them instead.
because all i get through my email is shite from companies i don't care about
But I tag all legit mailouts as such, mostly via filters so commercial and personal stuff (and all other categories of mail) separates itself.
People who leave themselves at the mercy of gmail's default categories deserve all they get.
But of you submit one, I'll do the search.
MY FILTERS ARE STRONG
Not sure why they didn't keep at it and put some proper server power behind it.
2) Nah/good/who cares.
3) Learn to use email.
4) What? No.
(nearly) everyone is on facebook, which already has a web interface, just use facebook messenger.
Game changer indeed.
than playing on my phone. Game changer is a stretch, but I certainly approve.
It's just WhatsApp on your computer right? There are no secret features that I'm missing?
i have nothing on my phone that is used more than whatsapp. it's the only way i contact almost all my friends and family now. it is amazing for having a group conversation with five of my friends, one who is in NYC, another in Dubai, another in Oz and me, in Canada.
TheWza, read it and weep.
Used to use it all the time for band stuff and always had problems with messages dropping in bulk rather than as they were sent.
Text, email and facebook chat do the job for me. I'm not someone who needs to be messaging groups of people all the time like you lot though.
I had to update whatsapp before it would work
wonder if this will fuck my phone's battery
I've got quite stubborn and that in the past few weeks. I blame my stressful commute.
you should get a car
and i wouldn't be able to read
caused by a parasite you got from your dirty tea towels?
Basically they stole my idea
still none the wiser tbh
On their subscription? It's been extended by a month the past 2 months and now it's just been extended by a year.
You can call people using Whatsapp now.
texts and phone calls on the same device! Excelsior!
Probs just gonna delete it now.
obvs deleting the spam.
