How to Add Friends on WhatsApp

With the influx of messaging apps in various platforms, keeping in touch with family and friends has never been much easier. However, there are instances where you cannot find a certain friend you've been looking for. Each messaging app has their own features how to search and add friends to your list. If you are a first-time WhatsApp user and you are wondering how to do this, here is how you add friends on WhatsApp.

1. First, make sure that the friend that you want to chat with has WhatsApp installed on their phones. If not, you can invite them by sending an email or SMS message to them.

2. If you are an Android user, launch WhatsApp and tap the New Chat icon found on the upper right corner of the screen. If you are using Blackberry or iPhone, tap Favorites.

3. On your Contacts page, scroll down and tap "Tell Friends about WhatsApp" at the bottom of your screen. For iPhone and Blackberry, tap "Invite Friends."

4. A pop-up window will appear with options to send the invitation. You can either send the link via SMS, email, or other messaging apps installed on your phone. If you are going to send an SMS, you will be charged the standard SMS rate.

5. Another way of adding friends to WhatsApp is entering your friend's phone number in your Phonebook after confirming he or she has WhatsApp installed in his or her phone. Make sure that you enter the correct number correctly. If you are entering an internationa number, don't use zeros but the plus (+) sign. Then, type the country code and phone number.

6. After that, go to your Contacts page on WhatsApp and tap Refresh.
