So WhatsApp has over 600 million users and I don't think I know anybody who doesn't use it. Even my parents use WhatsApp, and these people don't even know how to work a DVD player.

So, is there anybody out there not using WhatsApp? The statistics say yes, there are some people, but I want to know why those people don't use it.

So, why do you think some people don't use WhatsApp? :D

To be honest I have it installed but don't really use it. Like facebook, I have friends who do use it but I prefer sms and Hangouts.

The App I can't live without is Voxer, I've used this messaging app since it first launched, it's my most used App and used daily, it helps me keep in touch with all my family members and friends across the world,

It's Simple, easy to use, why text when you can Voxer, it's good to talk and to hear the voices of loved ones, plus it takes me back to the good old walkie-talkie day's.

That's a big 10-4 Over

I've tried it twice now and uninstalled it both times the same day.
I just don't like it... But I don't like the green one either. I don't see the draw.
I use Message+, Contacts+ and Dialer+.

I may give this Voxer a go though.

There is no doubt that WhatsApp is popular,but it doesn't mean every one know it. We all know gold is good,but some of people don't like it ,maybe like jade, diamonds.In other country, they have their own app
to let them contact with each other.Just like nearly every one has phone, but sometimes we need use walkie talkie, though it is not so popular! It is related cultural, environmental, as well as personal preferences.

I also don't use it, and know a lot of people which don't. The thing is for some reason some messaging apps are more popular in particular countries/regions and some are don't. I'm pretty sure Messenger is far more popular for my area.

My friends and I use Facebook Messenger for our messaging needs.
I also don't need end-to-end encryption at the moment.

I also don't use What's App, cause I need just Facebook to connect with my friends. Using too many apps for communication is not cool.
