Shortly after writing up news of WhatsApp’s new Material Design update and admitting that I’ve never used the app in my life because I live in the US, a number of our US readers chimed in to say that they actually prefer WhatsApp and that everyone they know uses it as well. The rest of the world also can’t fathom the idea that I’ve never used the app, yet run an Android site, and has lambasted me for it. It’s been fun! WhatsApp users sure love their WhatsApp.
So, that means we need to find out if WhatsApp really is making its way to our shores or not and if I need to start convincing every person I know to adopt it into their lives, even though I finally convinced most of them to use Hangouts after years of work.
Let us know, are you using WhatsApp?
